Materials underpin nearly all engineering applications. Materials engineering plays a significant role in a range of applications from developing new biomedical engineering devices, to creating sustainable energy solutions and better manufacturing processes and products.
By creating new materials or improving existing ones, materials engineers make a valuable contribution to the design of new products and devices and the improvement of existing ones. You will gain insight into the processing-structure-property relationships of a range of materials, such as metals, polymers, ceramics, electronic materials and composites.
You will learn the fundamental concepts of atomic bonding, atomic scale structure, phase equilibria and methods of characterisation from materials engineering experts who are conducting world leading research in areas such as biomaterials, tissue engineering, nanomaterials, polymers, ceramics, materials modelling and characterisation.
The Master of Engineering (Materials) will equip graduates for careers as metallurgists, plastics engineers, ceramists, adhesive scientists, process and quality control engineers and corrosion engineers. You will work in industrial design, manufacturing, processing and recycling, and select and design materials for: aerospace vehicles; ground transportation systems; automotive industry; solar energy and battery devices; tissue engineering and drug delivery; information and communication systems; electronic and magnetic devices and systems; and optical and opto-electronic components.
You will conduct failure analysis of materials in a variety of applications including those mentioned above.
Employment opportunities exist working in research and development, academia, national laboratories including the Defence Science and Technology Group and industry for companies such as: AECOM, Deloitte, Ford, GlaxoSmithKline, KPMG, Orica, BlueScope Steel, Morgan Advanced Ceramics, Austral Bricks and Qenos. Materials engineers are in demand and receive some of the highest salaries in the engineering industry.

- Skills and know-how in the latest technologies in E & I oil and gas engineering
- Tremendous boost to your E & I oil and gas career – no matter whether you are a new graduate or a technician
- Decades of real experience distilled into the course presentations and materials
- Guidance from real E & I oil and gas experts in the field
- Hands-on practical knowledge from the extensive experience of instructors, rather than the theoretical information from books and colleges
- Credibility as the local expert in E & I oil and gas
- Networking contacts in the oil and gas industry
- Improved career prospects and income
- An Advanced Diploma in Electrical & Instrumentation Engineering for Oil and Gas
Next intake is scheduled for May 2, 2018. Applications are now open; places are limited.
There is a growing shortage, and hence opportunity, for Electrical and Instrumentation (E & I) technicians, technologists and engineers in the oil and gas industry. This is due to an increasing need for higher technology methods of obtaining and processing oil and gas as it is a finite declining resource. The technical challenges of extracting oil and gas are becoming ever more demanding, with increasing emphasis on more marginal fields and previously inaccessible zones such as deep oceans, Polar regions, Falkland Islands and Greenland. The aim of this 18-month e-learning program is to provide you with core E & I engineering skills so that these opportunities may be accessed, to enhance your career, and to benefit your firm.
This advanced diploma is presented by lecturers who are highly experienced engineers from industry, having 'worked in the trenches' in the various E & I engineering areas. When doing any course today, a mix of both extensive experience and teaching prowess is essential. All our lecturers have been carefully selected and are seasoned professionals.
This advanced diploma course provides a practical treatment of electrical power systems and instrumentation within the oil, gas, petrochemical and offshore industries. Whilst there is some theory this is used in a practical context giving you the necessary tools to ensure that the Electrical and Instrumentation hardware is delivering the results intended. No matter whether you are a new electrical, instrumentation or control technician/technologist/graduate engineer or indeed, even a practicing facilities engineer, you will find this course beneficial in improving your understanding, skills and knowledge of the whole spectrum of activities ranging from basic E & I engineering to advanced practice including hazardous areas, data communications along with a vast array of E & I equipment utilized in an oil and gas environment.
This program would be ideal for you if you are seeking to get know-how and expertise in the oil and gas business and are an:
- Instrument and process control technician or technologist
- Instrument fitter
- Chemical or mechanical engineer
- Electrical engineer currently working in a different area to oil and gas
- Experienced electrician
- A recent graduate electrical, instrumentation or mechanical engineer
Even if you are highly experienced you will find this a great way to become familiar with the oil and gas technology as quickly as possible.
The valuable oil and gas program has five main streams:
- Electrical engineering
- Instrumentation and Control engineering
- General Oil and Gas engineering
- Subsea Instrumentation and Control
- Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) Facilities
