Course Description

THE NEW GENERATION OF ENGINEERING EDUCATION

WHAT MAKES THIS PROGRAM TRULY INNOVATIVE:

* This engineering qualification is distinguished by its emphasis on useful, practical industry-orientated technology units combined with strong academic foundations closely aligned with the job market. It is a truly interactive online program, drawing on features such as interactive live instruction and remote (cloud-based) laboratories.
* EIT’s existing industry-orientated programs ensure that you have a continuous pathway (with viable exit or “rest” points) to a professional engineering level beginning with advanced diploma studies, through Bachelors of Science, to master’s degree level. You will be able to exit the pathway with a qualification.
* Flexibility of study load and duration, within program rules. If you wish to reduce the study load then duration may extend up to a maximum of 6 years unless extenuating circumstances apply (illness, parenting responsibilities or similar).
* It is global in its reach. EIT’s current students join from over 100 countries.
* Students are supported with a dedicated learning coordinator in addition to the lecturers. This provides a single, consistent point of reference for students and intensive support to enhance the learning process. The coordinator acts as a mentor who will assist you to augment your potential throughout the program and acts as a conduit for direct contact with the lecturers.
* Lecturers are drawn overwhelmingly from industry and are highly experienced engineers, as well as practiced presenters.
* EIT has built strong linkages with industry over many years operating in the vocational sector. Flexible and dynamic development means that units will maintain currency with changing technology.

Notes

PATHWAY TO THE BACHELOR OF SCIENCE

The pathway to the BSc (Eng.) is designed for students who qualify for credit from their preceding advanced diploma or equivalent studies and industry experience. The pathway will provide advanced diploma entrants with exemption for those units within the BSc curriculum that are technology orientated where it can be demonstrated that equivalent content and depth of study has already been completed in the advanced diploma program. This will only apply if the discipline stream chosen can be closely associated with the units taken in the advanced diploma stage.

It is anticipated that AE students with a relevant industrial career background (that is at an appropriate career level) would not need to complete the industrial experience in the 4th term of Years 1 and 2, and may also gain credit for the associated Industrial Experience Research Project unit (unit code 109S). This credit would be gained only after formal assessment of the student’s career history and it is likely that these vocationally experienced students will need to deepen their academic knowledge and may need to deepen their professional engineering competencies. This deepening is built into the program by three inclusions:

* Core units will extend academic knowledge in areas such as the more theoretical maths and engineering science that a vocational entrant may not have experienced;

* Where required, short bridging courses may be offered to overcome gaps in prior knowledge (delivered in sub-discipline units) that are identified when students apply for credit for prior learning;

* Students who have industrial experience that is identified as being at an inadequate standard would be required to complete the Industrial Experience Research Project unit. This would be determined case-by-case based on EIT’s Higher Education Admissions Policy and the BSc Entry Requirements.
