Course description

52857WA Advanced Diploma of Plant Engineering;

The course gives extensive coverage in the various fields of Plant Engineering. Practical knowledge is not neglected; a Plant Engineer should also be well informed about metal forming, joining, heat treatment and protection.

This course avoids over emphasis on theory. This is rarely needed in the real industrial world where time is short and immediate results are required. Hard-hitting and useful know-how, are needed as minimum requirements. The format of presentation, live, interactive distance learning with the use of remote labs, means that you can hit the ground running and be of immediate benefit to your company or future employer.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Entry Requirements

This Engineering Institute of Technology Advanced Diploma is an accelerated, practical, work-oriented program. It is designed for engineers and technicians who have some background in the field. This includes those who have technical or ‘trade’ qualifications who want to move to the next career step, those with substantial relevant work experience who need to formalize and enhance their achievements, and those with higher level qualifications in a related field who wish to develop specialist knowledge. Practical work experience in related areas of engineering would help enormously. It would not be suitable for a student with no relevant work experience. We will review your application and may recommend pre-program studies if required.
