A diploma through our school of mechanical engineering is ideal for anyone wanting to get involved in the general engineering (whether design or maintenance) of large plants, especially as a plant engineer.
The focus in the Engineering Institute of Technology (EIT) School of Mechanical Engineering is in providing students with both deep and broad skills in mechanical engineering technology, focusing on real systems.
Whilst there is probably not a shortage of theoretically orientated practitioners in mechanical engineering, there is a need for highly skilled, practically oriented engineers, technologists and technicians, due to the rapidly increasing use of new technologies which are becoming a key component of all modern plants and equipment.
Studying our mechanical engineering diploma online means you don't have to take extended periods away from existing work commitments. Mechanical Engineering encompasses the conceptualisation, design, manufacture, control and maintenance of machines ranging from a conveyer, space shuttle to nanotechnology based objects.
In broad terms, mechanical engineering channels the energy and forces in nature to the service of people. The fields in which mechanical engineering professionals operate are wide - ranging from oil and gas, power generation, water utilities, process plants, mining, pharmaceuticals, manufacturing and defence.
Recently, mechanical engineering has begun to include many new systems in the electronics and control arena such as programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and SCADA as these are critical to the control of mechanical devices.

The Engineering Institute of Technology (EIT) | Engineering & Technology Education
The Engineering Institute of Technology (EIT) provides leading edge engineering and technology education.
Students can enrol to earn Professional Certificates of Competency, Advanced Diplomas and Vocational Graduate Diplomas (as pathway to an accredited Master's program).
Study at EIT is designed for students working in industry who need a practical, relevant education that is delivered efficiently. Our students work in the fast-moving engineering and technology fields where time is precious. They choose the EIT's state-of-the-art online delivery because it provides many of the benefits of live classroom based study without the inconvenience of travel. EIT Engineering diplomas and courses are run by expert instructors who present in a friendly, interactive manner.
EIT online programs are presented by some of the finest engineering lecturers and instructors worldwide who have extensive real engineering experience in industry. Our students enjoy the real benefits of having an "expert at the desk".
The live, interactive web-based sessions ("webinars") provide interest and motivation to ensure you are engaged and learning actively. See our Student Stories for testimonials.
