Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical Power)
Electrical power engineering is a well established engineering discipline encompassing electrical power generation, transmission and distribution, power electronics, electromechanical systems and renewable energy.
The course focuses on the development of knowledge and skills relevant to professional engineering practice and, along with a sound theoretical base, includes strong elements of practical problem solving, team work and project development. As a result, as well as having multiple technical and transferable skill competencies, graduates will have strong analytical skills and the ability to lead complex projects.
Students will graduate conversant in electrical and electronic engineering and have specialist skills in design, development and management of advanced and sustainable electrical power generation and transmission systems. They will also have the ability to participate in and lead complex multidisciplinary projects.
Students are required to complete practicum placement(s) as part of this course.
Additional Course Information
During the course, students will be required to undertake a minimum of 12 weeks practical work experience located in an engineering industry environment. This will normally be undertaken during a vacation period, even though it is listed as a unit for Year 4 (ENS4111).
