Course delivery details

You are expected to spend approximately 10-15 hours per week learning the program material and completing assessments. This includes attending weekly webinars that run for about 90 minutes to facilitate class discussion and allow you to ask questions. This program is run online on a part-time basis and has been designed to fit around full-time work. It will take 18 months to complete.

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 the latest technologies, value adding to existing products, processes, and services, and the development of new, sustainable and innovative solutions.
