Student Quotes

“I decided to study at the College of Engineering as it is a highly reputable engineering department.

My favourite memories of the course are the practical aspects and the lab work. Group projects have given me the opportunity to work in a team to overcome engineering-based problems. Studying at the College of Engineering has given me a good knowledge of engineering principles and has helped me to apply this to real life problems.

As part of my time here, I took part in the IAESTE programme. I worked with the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Manipal, Southern India, on a development project involving an irrigation system.

My future plan is to get some experience in an engineering firm, and hopefully, this experience will allow me to work abroad for an NGO on further development projects."

INTRODUCTION

The respected International Society of Automation (ISA) estimated that at least 15,000 new automation engineers are needed annually in the US alone. Many industrial automation businesses throughout the world comment on the difficulty in finding experienced automation engineers despite paying outstanding salaries.

The Master of Engineering (Industrial Automation) perfectly addresses this gap in the Industrial Automation industry. The program's twelve core units, and project thesis, provide you with the practical knowledge and skills required. Students with a background in electrical, mechanical, instrumentation and control, or industrial computer systems engineering can benefit from this program.

The content has been carefully designed to provide you with relevant concepts and the tools required in today’s fast-moving work environment. For example, Power Engineering covers major equipment and technologies used in power systems, including power generation, transmission and distribution networks. Programmable Logic Controllers covers in-depth principles of operation of programmable controllers, networking, distributed controllers, and program control strategies. Industrial Process Control Systems combines the process identification and feedback control design with a broad understanding of the hardware, system architectures and software techniques widely used to evaluate and implement complex control solutions. Industrial Instrumentation identifies key features of widely used measurement techniques and transducers combined with microprocessor devices to create robust and reliable industrial instruments. Process Engineering will enable students to evaluate and apply complex process calculations through application of control principles. Industrial Data Communications provides the requisite knowledge to manage modern field buses and industrial wireless systems. Safety Systems provides an introduction to the common safety philosophy of hazard identification, risk management and risk-based design of protection methods and functional safety systems. SCADA and DCS cover hardware and software systems, evaluation of typical DCS and SCADA systems and configuration of DCS controllers. Special Topics enable students to incorporate current technologies and the knowledge acquired from the entire course and thus solve complex Industrial Automation problems.

The Masters project, as the capstone of the course, requires a high level of personal autonomy and accountability, and reinforces the knowledge and skill base developed in the preceding subjects. As a significant research component of the course, this project will facilitate research, critical evaluation and the application of knowledge and skills with creativity and initiative, enabling students to critique current professional practice in the Industrial Automation industry.

ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS

To gain entry into the Master of Engineering (Industrial Automation), applicants need one of the following:
a) a recognized 3-year bachelor degree in an engineering qualification in a congruent* field of practice with relevant work experience**.
b) a 4-year Bachelor of Engineering qualification (or equivalent), that is recognized under the Washington Accord or Engineers Australia, in a congruent*, or a different field of practice at the discretion of the Admissions Committee.
c) a 4-year Bachelor of Engineering qualification (or equivalent) that is not recognized under the Washington Accord, in a congruent* field of practice to this program.

AND

An appropriate level of English Language Proficiency equivalent to an English pass level in an Australian Senior Certificate of Education, or an IELTS score of 6.5 (with no individual band less than 6), or equivalent as outlined in the EIT Admissions Policy.

*Congruent field of practice means one of the following with adequate Industrial Automation content (fields not listed below to be considered by the Dean and the Admissions Committee on a case-by-case basis):

PROGRAM STRUCTURE

Students must complete 48 credit points comprised of 12 core subjects and one capstone thesis. The thesis is the equivalent of one full semester of work. There are no electives in this course. The course duration is two years full time, or equivalent. Subjects will be delivered over 4 semesters per year. Students will take 2 subjects per semester and be able to complete 8 subjects per year. There will be a short break between semesters. Each semester is 12 weeks long.

LIVE WEBINARS

During the program you will participate in weekly interactive sessions with the lecturers and other participants from around the world. Each unit's weekly live tutorial will last 60 to 90 minutes. We take student availability into consideration wherever possible before scheduling webinar times. All you need to participate is an adequate Internet connection, speakers and a microphone. The software package and setup details will be sent to you at the start of the program.

COURSE FEES

EIT provides distance education to students located almost anywhere in the world – it is one of the very few truly global training institutes. Course fees are paid in a currency that is determined by the student’s location.

INTRODUCTION

The respected International Society of Automation (ISA) estimated that at least 15,000 new automation engineers are needed annually in the US alone. Many industrial automation businesses throughout the world comment on the difficulty in finding experienced automation engineers despite paying outstanding salaries.

The Master of Engineering (Industrial Automation) perfectly addresses this gap in the Industrial Automation industry. The program's twelve core units, and project thesis, provide you with the practical knowledge and skills required. Students with a background in electrical, mechanical, instrumentation and control, or industrial computer systems engineering can benefit from this program.

The content has been carefully designed to provide you with relevant concepts and the tools required in today’s fast-moving work environment. For example, Power Engineering covers major equipment and technologies used in power systems, including power generation, transmission and distribution networks. Programmable Logic Controllers covers in-depth principles of operation of programmable controllers, networking, distributed controllers, and program control strategies. Industrial Process Control Systems combines the process identification and feedback control design with a broad understanding of the hardware, system architectures and software techniques widely used to evaluate and implement complex control solutions. Industrial Instrumentation identifies key features of widely used measurement techniques and transducers combined with microprocessor devices to create robust and reliable industrial instruments. Process Engineering will enable students to evaluate and apply complex process calculations through application of control principles. Industrial Data Communications provides the requisite knowledge to manage modern field buses and industrial wireless systems. Safety Systems provides an introduction to the common safety philosophy of hazard identification, risk management and risk-based design of protection methods and functional safety systems. SCADA and DCS cover hardware and software systems, evaluation of typical DCS and SCADA systems and configuration of DCS controllers. Special Topics enable students to incorporate current technologies and the knowledge acquired from the entire course and thus solve complex Industrial Automation problems.

The Masters project, as the capstone of the course, requires a high level of personal autonomy and accountability, and reinforces the knowledge and skill base developed in the preceding subjects. As a significant research component of the course, this project will facilitate research, critical evaluation and the application of knowledge and skills with creativity and initiative, enabling students to critique current professional practice in the Industrial Automation industry.
