Eóin McCartney

Experience at EIT was great, I learned a lot, improved existing technical skills et and developed new skills to advance my career. The remote learning enabled me to focus my work into my busy work schedule. I would definitely recommend EIT to friends and colleagues looking to take the next step in their career.

Ian Doolun

My experience at EIT was rich in knowledge and it definitely enhanced my skills in engineering overall.

Edidiong Wilson

My experience at EIT has been the best when it comes to online learning. I got value for my money. The staff were very professional in executing their jobs. I want to use this opportunity to thank every member of EIT who made my study here a success. Thank you so much and keep up the great job.

Obiezu Amaobi

It was an extremely wonderful learning experience in EIT. The quality of material and the depth of experience of instructors was quite impressive. Course was tailored to meet current industrial needs. I am totally satisfied with the course.

Onoriode Akporherhe

EIT has provided me with the best education experience so far that I would like to consider enrolling for a Doctorate program whenever it commences.

Abimbola Ogunlade

It has been interesting and rewarding studying at EIT. The teaching and learning methodology are modern and simply out of this world. When I completed an advanced Diploma in industrial Automation at EIT several years ago, I knew I would be back for more academic pursuits. Now, having completed a master's Degree program in the same field, I cannot wait any longer to commence a PhD study in the same field at EIT.

Givemore Mhene

Studying at EIT was an experience which has left me a better person. Now I can confidently explore the technology in my field of work and also can work in a planned way unlike before. This course has given me the ability to analyse and understand situations which previously I would have not been able to figure out. I can say I came out of EIT a changed person and a better manager.


Back in 2008, when EIT was expanding from a company providing courses for professional development into a fully-fledged college of engineering, Richard was not only an enormous support, but his involvement contributed to the success we enjoyed. He was hearty in his encouragement of our efforts and he shared his expertise generously. In his honour we have created a Richard Morley Prize for Engineering Excellence. Richard E. Morley will be remembered as the Father of the Programmable Logic Controller, certainly. But for us, at the Engineering Institute of Technology, he will be that someone splendid who helped us forge a brave and determined path towards creating a college of excellence in engineering education.
