Anyone who is too dumb to use the search feature on this board (or do a simple search for such programs anywhere on the Internet) is too dumb to earn a degree in engineering (or anything else). And anyone too ignorant not to specify what type of engineering should find another field of interest.

Go play in someone else's sandbox. After this message, you will never be taken seriously here. In fact, we are already laughing at you. :roll:

Hi

I am looking for Mechanical Engineering or Aeronautical.

I have search the web, but I dont know if any of those are credible. You can buy a degree from the internet as well.

Hence I posted on the forum.

I will be more informative going forward.

So may I ask which institution would people on this forum recommend for study in mechanical or aeronautical engineering via distance learning?

Thank you

Kind Regards,
Zany

As far as the USA is concerned, there really aren't any. Conventional engineering BS programs aren't available by distance learning, because an ABET-accredited BS degree requires extensive "hands-on" use of laboratories and equipment. This kind of training cannot be delivered effectively over the web.

The University of North Dakota offers fully ABET-accredited engineering degrees by distance, but students are still required to travel to Grand Forks, North Dakota in the summer to fulfill the laboratory requirements. This probably isn't a practical option, unless you live in North Dakota or a neighboring state/province. For non-residents, the total costs for tuition and travel would likely exceed $100,000.

When you're coming up empty check UNISA

Otherwise, the previous posts are correct. I didn't bother to look at the programs to see how they get around the labwork problem. Beyond all that I can only suggest that you check the usual suspects in Australia.
