Advanced Diploma of Industrial Data Communication, Networking and IT

Gain indepth skills and knowledge by undertaking this Advanced Diploma in Industrial Data Communications, Networking and IT over 18 months (intensive, part-time). Delivered by live distance learning and presented by some of the leading industrial data communications and IT instructors in the world today. There is a serious shortage of industrial data communications and industrial IT engineers, technologists and technicians in the world due to these new technologies only recently becoming a key component of modern plants, factories and offices. This critical shortage of experts in the area has been accentuated by retirement, restructuring and rapid growth in new industries and technologies.

  • Electrical Engineers and Electricians
  • Maintenance Engineers and Supervisors
  • Energy Management Consultants
  • Automation and Process Engineers
  • Design Engineers
  • Project Managers
  • Instrument Fitters and Instrumentation Engineers
  • Consulting Engineers
  • Production Managers
  • Chemical and Mechanical Engineers
  • Instrument and Process Control Technicians

  • Retain employees: keep staff who may be considering a qualification as full time study
  • Increase efficiency: improve your engineering or technical employees’ skills and knowledge
  • International insight: students will have access to internationally based professional instructors and students

How Does it Work?

EIT online learning courses involve a combination of live, interactive sessions over the Internet with a professional instructor, set readings, and assignments. The courses include simulation software and remote laboratory applications to let you put theory to practice, and provide you with constant support from a dedicated Learning Support Officer.

Practical Exercises and Remote Laboratories

As part of the groundbreaking new way of teaching, our online engineering courses use a series of remote laboratories (labs) and simulation software, to facilitate your learning and to test the knowledge you gain during your course. These involve complete working labs set up at various locations of the world into which you will be able to log to and proceed through the various practical sessions.

These will be supplemented by simulation software, running either remotely or on your computer, to ensure you gain the requisite hands-on experience. No one can learn much solely from lectures, the labs and simulation software are designed to increase the absorption of the materials and to give you a practical orientation of the learning experience. All this will give you a solid, practical exposure to the key principles covered and will ensure that you obtain maximum benefit from your course.
