Overview

Many industrial enterprises throughout the world comment on the difficulty in finding experienced Plant Engineers despite paying outstanding salaries. Often universities and colleges do not teach Plant engineering as a core subject. Much of the vital knowledge  you need when commencing work as a qualified Plant Engineer is missing from their curricula. 

However, there are a few notable exceptions with some highly dedicated practitioners. Many of those universities and colleges that do teach Plant Engineering do so mainly from a theoretical point of view.

The programme

Furthermore, lecturers often have insufficient experience in industry due to the difficulty in attracting good engineers from the highly paid private sector. The aim of this 18 month online learning program is to provide you with core Plant Engineering skills. 

The course gives extensive coverage in the various fields of Plant Engineering. Subjects are covered such as Plant Operations, Facility Management, Instrument Control Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, and Safety and Financial Management. 

Practical knowledge is not neglected; a Plant Engineer should also be well informed about metal forming, joining, heat treatment and protection.

This Plant Engineering course at Engineering Institute of Technology avoids over emphasis on theory. This is rarely needed in the real industrial world where time is short and immediate results are required. Hard-hitting and useful know-how, are needed as minimum requirements. 

The format of presentation, live, interactive distance learning with the use of remote labs, means that you can hit the ground running and be of immediate benefit to your company or future employer.
