This advanced diploma is delivered with a strong practical focus and covers a variety of skills such as electrical engineering and instrumentation and control engineering. Upon completion of this program, you will gain skills and knowledge in the latest and developing technologies in electrical and instrumentation (E&I) engineering for oil and gas facilities.
• Skills in the latest electrical and instrumentation technologies
• Practical guidance from experts in the field
• Global networking contacts in the industry
• A world class Advanced Diploma of Electrical and Instrumentation (E&I) Engineering for Oil and Gas Facilities
This program aims to impart the necessary electrical and instrumentation engineering skills, and all the theory covered is tied to a practical outcome. Five threads run through the program to give you maximum, functional coverage in the field of electrical and instrumentation engineering. These threads comprise of electrical engineering, instrumentation and control engineering, general oil and gas engineering, subsea instrumentation and control, and floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) facilities.
This practical program avoids too much emphasis on theory. The lecturers presenting this advanced diploma are highly experienced engineers who have worked in the electrical and instrumentation 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.
Graduates will have the knowledge and skills to contribute to the capacity of electrical and instrumentation engineering and related industries to maintain their competitiveness in a global marketplace through the application of latest technologies, value adding to existing products, process and services and the development of new, sustainable and innovative solutions.
