There is scarcely an aspect of modern life that isn’t dependent on electrical energy. It is used in such varied activities as cooling, heating, transport, manufacturing, production, communications, minerals processing and water transfer. Engineers and technicians with an electrical diploma find employment in fields as diverse as generation, transmission, distribution and the eventual application of electrical energy in machinery. Due to the challenges of climate change there is also a vital interest in the use and storage of renewable and sustainable energy. The demand for well trained electrical professionals is assured with rapid expansion of the electricity supply in the developing world, the addition of the yet-to-be-constructed smart grid, and our growing dependency upon electricity supply of high integrity.
Electrical engineering skills and knowledge are also critical in a wide range of industries ranging from oil and gas, water utilities, process plants, mining, pharmaceuticals, manufacturing and defence. The EIT provide electrical engineering courses online for engineers and technicians of all levels and from all types of industry, be it mining, oil and gas or instrumentation. The Advanced Diploma of Electrical Engineering course covers a large range of topics and is suited to anyone needing an intensive and practical look at all facets of electrical engineering.
Key subjects in the EIT School of Electrical Engineering courses include: power generation, transmission, distribution, rotating machinery, power electronics, earthing and safety regulations, electrical documentation and drawings, ac and dc machines, circuit breakers, transformers, energy efficiency, earthing and lightning, power systems protection, dc and ac emergency power supplies, electrical wiring regulations, high voltage supplies and power quality.
EIT also offers a range of electronic engineering courses that provide students with an in depth knowledge of electronic circuits and systems used across a range of industries. To learn more about electrical or electronic engineering call us on +61 8 9321 1702 or visit our contact page.
