About Doctor of Engineering - On-Campus at Engineering Institute of Technology

Graduates of the Doctor of Engineering (DEng) will be able to make original and significant contributions to the development, application, and evaluation of professional knowledge by engaging with practical problems of demonstrated importance to their employment context and the wider body of engineering and technical knowledge.

Program Details

Successful completion of the course will equip the graduate to take a leading role in the development of research investigations into current and future problems of industrial and community concern within their area of expertise. The program will give candidates the skills and experience to act as independent researchers or group leaders for investigations of practical importance in their professional area over their professional life.

The doctorate will run over three years (with 2 semesters per year). The first year consists of four academic coursework units and a research project proposal, which allows candidates to demonstrate their aptitude for research by undertaking a state-of-the-art literature review. This extends knowledge and skills attained in their undergraduate program and the four foundation doctoral units.

The second year of the DEng will require the candidate to successfully complete a further four units (two course work and two research units) that will address deeper concepts in their discipline area. Each of these units will have a significant research component as required by AQF Level 9/10. Complex theory will be applied to current industry problems. The synergies and importance of theoretical constructs to professional practice will be explored in detail. The second year has the important objective of providing the candidate with appropriate skills and expert knowledge to undertake a doctoral-level dissertation in the final year with the requisite rigor. This includes identifying a suitable research problem and undertaking an introductory literature review relative to the chosen topic.

The third year of the Doctorate of Engineering is the dissertation year. Here the candidate will be expected to extend their work on the project that they have developed over the first and second year. The candidate will draw upon the research training, course learning, and research undertaken during the second year, to support this substantive body of work at AQF Level 10. This must make a significant and original contribution to knowledge in the context of professional practice. In other words, the doctoral candidate must create new knowledge that can be applied in an industrial context. Academic supervision, coupled with guidance from an industry advisor, will be an integral part of this program.

What students think about Engineering Institute of Technology

    Santosh Ghimire: Driven by a Mission to Make Renewable Energy Available for Developing Countries

    Testimonial from Santosh Ghimire: Driven by a Mission to Make Renewable Energy Available for Developing Countries, student at Engineering Institute of Technology

    EIT Master of Engineering student, Santosh Ghimire, had to use a kerosene lamp to study and do his homework while growing up. His formative years in Nepal meant he was part of a sizable portion of the population that didn’t have access to electricity at home.

    Then came a big shift, when Santosh decided to enrol in EIT’s Master of Engineering (Industrial Automation) in 2019, and pursue it on-campus in Australia.

    He had cognizance that while the energy demand is ever-increasing, the use of fossil fuels to generate energy doesn’t have a future. He knows the search for alternative, sustainable, and renewable energy sources will be the next great leap to ensure developing nations have adequate energy for years to come.

    “Development of technologies has dropped the cost of energy produced by renewable technologies, which is now comparable with energy from traditional power plants. As renewable energy technologies are environmentally friendly and the sources are sustainable, a small contribution may be the foundation for the future of the power system,” Santosh believes.

    Martin Masemola: More Than Just a Qualification in Engineering

    Testimonial from Martin Masemola: More Than Just a Qualification in Engineering, student at Engineering Institute of Technology

    Martin Masemola started studying with the plan of obtaining a Master of Engineering degree. He is now one of EIT's first students in our flagship Doctor of Engineering program.

    Martin’s quest to obtain a Master of Engineering degree started in 2003. As a student from South Africa and working full-time as an engineer, there was little option but to enroll in a programme that molded around his needs.

    While his career was thriving, the itch to complete a postgraduate qualification was still there. And that’s when online education became a viable option.

    "I was involved early with EIT when they conducted several surveys on online education when I learned the Master of Engineering qualification were being offered, I checked if the programme would allow me to register as Professional Engineer or if it was a Washington Accord accredited qualification.”

    Shashi Senevirathna: Going Further With EIT’s Master of Engineering in Industrial Automation

    Testimonial from Shashi Senevirathna: Going Further With EIT’s Master of Engineering in Industrial Automation, student at Engineering Institute of Technology

    Currently studying EIT's Master of Engineering (Industrial Automation) at our Melbourne campus and recently appointed as EIT's on-campus Higher Education Ambassador, Shashikala Senevirathna is the definition of a well-rounded engineer.

    Fondly known as Shashi, she started her education pathway in engineering a decade ago at the University of Peradeniya in Sri Lanka. Shashi graduated in 2015 with a Bachelor of Science of Engineering (Mechanical) Honors and since then never really slowed down in terms of not only working in the field of engineering but gaining as much knowledge and experience as possible.

    Her current enrollment at EIT to complete a Master of Engineering (Industrial Automation) and her Master degrees in Professional Accounting (MPA) and Masters in Business Administration (MBA) attests to that.  

    Having knowledge of business and administration is however just the icing on top of the cake.

    Shashi graduated in 2015 with a Bachelor of Science of Engineering (Mechanical) Honors and since then never really slowed down in terms of not only working in the field of engineering but gaining as much knowledge and experience as possible.

    “My mom always tells me, learn something new, read something new - you never know when there will be some use for it one day,” she muses.
