A valuable and accredited Bachelor of Science (Industrial Automation Engineering) qualification
There is a critical global shortage of automation, instrumentation and control engineers due mainly to restructuring and rapid growth of new industries and technologies. As industrial automation continues to develop with technological advancements, it is essential that prospective engineers graduate with skills that can be applied within the industry. Our Bachelor of Science (Industrial Automation Engineering) provides you with cutting-edge skills that are valuable in the workplace.
With this qualification, you will have acquired the essential knowledge which underpins both this and other fields of engineering. More importantly, you will have become an industrial automation technologist.
EIT on-campus programmes include tutorial and lecture sessions, practical lab exercises, class/group discussions and personal study time. EIT uses a blended model of learning with industry experts and academics based locally and streamed in from around the world.
Our students have access to a personalized student portal where all course materials are available 24/7.
Each unit is composed of 10 hours of study per week. Full-time on-campus students will study 4 – 4.5 units per semester and are required to be on campus for a minimum of 20 hours per week for tutorial, lecture, lab/workshop and self-study sessions.
Practical Exercises, Remote Labs and Assignments
All EIT programmes provide access to remote laboratories and cutting-edge simulation software. Hands-on laboratory practicals are an essential component of EIT’s programmes to ensure our students put theory into practice. These hands-on workshops cover the major discipline-specific applied skills required for competency in engineering practice.
Remote and on-campus students need support, encouragement and a go-to person. Our students are supported by dedicated Learning Support Officers (LSOs) and Course Coordinators for the duration of their studies, giving them a greater chance of success. Students studying our degrees will have a committed LSO for each unit of study.
