PROFESSIONAL RECOGNITION

This Master Degree (or Graduate Diploma) is an academically accredited program by the Australian Government agency (TEQSA) and does not currently offer entry-to-practice to Engineers Australia - Professional Engineering status. Engineers Australia are considering this and other programs for those students desiring professional status (e.g. CPEng). The outcome of this review may or may not result in a student gaining chartered professional status if he or she does not already possess this. However, it is recommended that you directly approach your local professional engineering body for an individual assessment and/or recognition.

Program Details

Introduction

The Master of Engineering (Electrical and Instrumentation in Oil and Gas) is a comprehensive qualification for Design, Installation, Commissioning and Maintenance Engineers who are looking for a career in the onshore and offshore oil and gas industry. The course addresses the specific core competencies and associated underpinning knowledge required for the position of Principal Engineer.

There are twelve units in the degree which cover electrical & instrumentation (E&I) engineering, its design and the management of E&I personnel. Other topics include process control, process safety lifecycle management and the safety integrity of facilities. Power engineering, maintenance management and specialist areas such as emergency shutdown systems, fire and gas are also covered. The course is rounded off with a unit on project management.

The Masters project thesis, as the capstone of the course, requires a high level of personal autonomy and purpose; it reinforces the knowledge gained during the degree. As a significant research component of the course, this project requires students to examine and explore their subjects, make critical evaluations and apply their knowledge and skill. It aims to prepare and enable students to critique and potentially enhance current professional practice in the Oil and Gas industry.

How Does it Work?

EIT eLearning courses involve a combination of live, interactive sessions over the Internet with a professional instructor, set readings, and assignments. The courses include simulation software and remote laboratory applications to let you put theory to practice, and provide you with constant support from a dedicated Learning Support Officer.


Practical Exercises and Remote Laboratories

As part of the groundbreaking new way of teaching, our online engineering courses use a series of remote laboratories (labs) and simulation software, to facilitate your learning and to test the knowledge you gain during your course. These involve complete working labs set up at various locations of the world into which you will be able to log to and proceed through the various practical sessions.

These will be supplemented by simulation software, running either remotely or on your computer, to ensure you gain the requisite hands-on experience. No one can learn much solely from lectures, the labs and simulation software are designed to increase the absorption of the materials and to give you a practical orientation of the learning experience. All this will give you a solid, practical exposure to the key principles covered and will ensure that you obtain maximum benefit from your course.
