The Master of Engineering (Electrical Systems) will equip you with the necessary skills to address the demands of the modern power industry. You will learn how to design the components of a power system including generation, transmission, distribution and associated systems. You will also cover the automation, protection and control components that contribute to the high level of reliability expected from current power systems. Upon completion of this program you will gain:

  • Skills and knowledge in the latest developing technologies in electrical systems
  • Practical guidance from electrical experts from around the world
  • A valuable and accredited Master of Engineering (Electrical Systems)** degree
  • Global networking contacts in academia and industry
  • Improved career options

Overview

The ever-increasing demand for electricity, the rising costs of power generation and a shortage of skilled electrical engineers are challenges faced world-wide.

Expanding economies and populations require an adequate and uninterrupted supply of electrical power. This places enormous pressure on power industries; they need to competently fuel this growing demand cost effectively. The greater challenge, however, is the scarcity of skilled personnel to design, operate and maintain the power networks.

The program presents renewable energy options to address the environmental issues posed by fossil fuel power plants. The section on project management provides the skills required for effective management of power generation, transmission and distribution projects.

The Thesis – the capstone of the course – requires a high level of autonomy and accountability and will reinforce the knowledge and skill you attain during the course. It is a significant research project requiring the ability to critically evaluate and apply knowledge and skill creatively.

Completion of an accredited undergraduate engineering degree (or equivalent) is a prerequisite for admission into this course.
