Key Facts

The doctorate will run over three years (with four 12-week terms 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 Doctor of Engineering (online) at Engineering Institute of Technology 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.
