Students with a background in mechanical, instrumentation & control, electrical, or industrial plant and systems engineering will especially benefit from this program as it prepares them for further career development in the mechanical design and maintenance industries.

The aim of the  Mechanical Engineering (Online) program at Engineering Institute of Technology is to provide students with skills in mechanical engineering technology and maintenance and to take advantage of the growing needs of the mechanical industry.

This program has been carefully designed to accomplish three key goals. First, a set of fundamental concepts is described in useful, manageable ways that encourage rapid and integrated knowledge-acquisition. Second, that knowledge is applied in creative and imaginative ways to afford practical, career-oriented advantages. 

Third, the learning that results from the integration of knowledge and application is emboldened by activities and projects, culminating in a project thesis that is the capstone of the program. 

This carefully designed learning journey will develop factual understanding and also exercise participants' creativity and design-thinking capabilities. Employers are hungry for these skills, and program graduates can expect a significant advantage when interacting with employers, clients, consultants, and fellow engineering peers.

Practical Exercises and Remote Laboratories

You will participate in laboratory practical assignments using a combination of local laboratories and remote/virtual and simulation software, to ensure you receive the requisite hands-on experience. 

The hardware equipment connected to most of the computers, both industrial and educational, allow you to perform the real implementation of engineering activities by interfacing the computers, software, and simulators to real-world hardware.


The program is an academically accredited program by the Australian Government agency (TEQSA).
