Program Details

This program aims to impart a solid overview of the current state of electrical engineering practice in the power industry, and all the theory covered is tied to a practical outcome. Eight threads run through the program to give you maximum, functional coverage in the field of electrical engineering. These threads comprise of electrical technology fundamentals, distribution equipment and protection, rotating machinery and transformers, power electronics, energy efficiency, earthing and safety regulations, operation and maintenance of electrical equipment, and electrical power supply industry.

This practical program avoids too much emphasis on theory. The lecturers presenting this advanced diploma are highly experienced engineers who have worked in the power industry. The delivery methodology — live and interactive webinars with the use of state-of-the-art technologies such as remote and virtual laboratories and simulation software — ensures you graduate with cutting-edge skills that are valued by employers around the world.

This advanced diploma is an accelerated, practical, work-oriented program. It is designed for engineers and technicians who have some background in the field. This includes those who have technical or ‘trade’ qualifications who want to move to the next career step, those with substantial relevant work experience who need to formalize and enhance their achievements, and those with higher-level qualifications in a related field who wish to develop specialist knowledge.

This means you are required to have either a trade certificate (Certificate 3) or equivalent, or at least three years of work experience within a relevant job and industry to gain entrance.  You may also have a higher level of qualification in a corresponding field and be looking to gain further practical knowledge.

Practical work experience in related areas of engineering would help enormously. It would not be suitable for a student with no relevant work experience.

We will review your application and may recommend pre-program studies if required.
