Overview

The critical shortage of experts in the area has been accentuated by retirement, restructuring and rapid growth in new industries and technologies. This is regardless of the recession in many countries.

The programme

Many businesses throughout the world comment on the difficulty in finding experienced mechanical engineers and technologists despite paying outstanding salaries. For example, about two years ago a need developed for mechanical technologists and engineers in building process plants. 

The interface from the traditional SCADA and industrial automation system to the web and to mechanical equipment has also created a new need for expertise in these areas. Specialists in these areas are few and far between.

The aim of this Mechanical Engineering Technology course at Engineering Institute of Technology  is to provide you with core skills in working with mechanical engineering technology and systems and to take advantage of the growing need by industry here.
