Program Details

This program aims to impart the necessary civil and structural engineering skills, and all the theory covered is tied to a practical outcome. Eight threads run through the program to give you maximum, functional coverage in the field of civil and structural engineering. These threads comprise of environmental issues, engineering technologies, drawing, 2D and 3D CAD design, building materials, roads, steel, concrete, pavement, drainage, soil, water supply and sewerage, construction sites, and engineering management.

This practical program avoids too much emphasis on theory. The lecturers presenting this advanced diploma are highly experienced engineers who have worked in the civil and structural engineering industry. The delivery methodology — live and interactive webinars with the use of state-of-the-art technologies such as remote and virtual laboratories and simulation software — ensures you graduate with cutting-edge skills that are valued by employers around the world.

This program is composed of four stages, delivered over 24 months.

In order to maximize the benefit of this course, students choosing to study online should have at least a tertiary qualification in engineering (diploma or degree) and experience in related areas of engineering. Practical work experience in related areas of engineering would also assist with the acquiring of the advanced diploma material. However, without this background, but with some technical knowledge, some counseling, and the necessary pre-course learning materials, it is possible to be brought up to the appropriate level.

English language competency is required.

Hear from our students

  The lecturers were very helpful and my course coordinators were very flexible when I was struggling to meet the deadlines.  
  Loved everything about EIT & the ability to study online. I liked the interactivity with the classes & being able to manage everything online.  
  Worked great with my busy schedule.  
  I am happy with the content of the course; liked the case-based approach. The teacher is energetic and explains the material well. The real-life focus of the teaching. I liked that the course didn’t focus on classic theory and models but rather on challenging the norms, finding the caveats in…
