What will I learn?

This advanced diploma is delivered with a strong practical focus and covers a variety of skills such as electrical engineering and instrumentation and control engineering. Upon completion of this program, you will gain skills and knowledge in the latest and developing technologies in electrical and instrumentation (E&I) engineering for oil and gas facilities.

Program Details

This program aims to impart the necessary electrical and instrumentation engineering skills, and all the theory covered is tied to a practical outcome. Five threads run through the program to give you maximum, functional coverage in the field of electrical and instrumentation engineering. These threads comprise of electrical engineering, instrumentation and control engineering, general oil and gas engineering, subsea instrumentation and control, and floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) facilities.

This practical program avoids too much emphasis on theory. The lecturers presenting this advanced diploma are highly experienced engineers who have worked in the electrical and instrumentation engineering industry. The delivery methodology — live and interactive webinars with the use of state-of-the-art technologies such as remote and virtual laboratories and simulation software — ensures you graduate with cutting-edge skills that are valued by employers around the world.

Program Structure

The program is composed of 23 modules. These modules cover a range of aspects to provide you with maximum practical coverage in the field of electrical and instrumentation (E&I) engineering for oil and gas facilities.

Entry requirements

For international students

This advanced diploma is an accelerated, practical, work-oriented program. It is designed for engineers and technicians who have some background in the field. This includes those who have technical or ‘trade’ qualifications who want to move to the next career step, those with substantial relevant work experience who need to formalize and enhance their achievements, and those with higher-level qualifications in a related field who wish to develop specialist knowledge.

This means you are required to have either a trade certificate (Certificate 3) or equivalent, or at least three years of work experience within a relevant job and industry to gain entrance. You may also have a higher level of qualification in a corresponding field and be looking to gain further practical knowledge.

Practical work experience in related areas of engineering would help enormously. It would not be suitable for a student with no relevant work experience.
