This Graduate Certificate in Power System Analysis and Design will provide you with an opportunity to develop your knowledge and skills to analyze power systems, stability of systems, power quality analysis and earthing/grounding and protection of electrical systems.
It offers an opportunity for industry professionals in the field to review, refresh and enhance their knowledge and skills in Power System Analysis and Design without having to complete a full Master’s degree.
A key area of electrical engineering is power system analysis and design. The Graduate Certificate in Power System Analysis and Design covers knowledge and skills to analyze power systems both under steady state and dynamic conditions. It will also cover in-depth principles involving power system protection and power quality analysis covering the applicable international standards. Aspects relating to system stability, including transient stability, small signal stability, frequency and voltage stability as well as measures to enhance system stability as a result of renewable systems integration will also be discussed.
The learning outcomes of the course is designed to equip students with professional engineering skills and knowledge to model solutions to address power quality problems, simulate various system conditions using industry-based software and undertake design principles for effective substation and protection systems.
You must complete 12 credit points comprising four core units. There are no electives in this program. The program duration is six months across two terms, and you will study two units per term. For further study, graduates may consider EIT’s Master of Engineering (Electrical Systems).

Applicants are required to:
Applicants who hold a bachelor’s degree in a non-congruent engineering field are required to demonstrate their prior learning and experience is equivalent to the entry requirements (exact positions and roles that will be considered relevant are to be decided by each specialisation and will be considered on a case-by-case basis by the EIT Admissions Committee).
Applicants who do not hold a recognized bachelor’s degree are required to demonstrate their prior learning and experience is equivalent to this qualification. A minimum of an Australian Advanced Diploma (or equivalent) in Engineering and 5 years of technical work experience at a technologist level or above in a relevant engineering field is required for an application to be considered (exact positions and roles that will be considered relevant are to be decided by each specialization and will be considered on a case-by-case basis by the EIT Admissions Committee) ***
* Congruent field of practice means one of the following with adequate Electrical Engineering content (fields not listed below to be considered by the Dean and the Admissions Committee on a case-by-case basis):
**Applicants may have a maximum of one individual band of 5.5 and be granted entry subject to the provision of English language support by EIT
*** Applicants who enter and complete this qualification without holding a prior Bachelor’s Degree and go on to complete an EIT Master’s Degree may not be eligible for Engineers Australia recognition. However, students can lodge a personal application with Engineers Australia to be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
Like all Australian higher education providers and universities, EIT programs are accredited by the exacting standards of the Australian Government’s Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA). This Graduate Certificate is a formally recognized qualification under the Australian Qualifications Framework.

Graduates will be able to work in a wide range of power system analysis, operation, electrical safety, power system protection, commissioning, consultation and supervision.
Our graduate certificates take six months to complete. We deliver our online graduate certificates on a part-time intensive basis. Part-time Students are expected to spend approximately 10-15 hours per week per unit learning the program material and completing assessments. This includes attending tutorials.
Applications are open for both our upcoming intakes. You must submit your application at least four weeks prior to the start date to be considered for your desired intake.
A census date is the date at which an enrolment is considered to be final. Any withdrawal you make after the study period census date will incur an academic penalty (for example, a fail grade) and a financial penalty (for example, no refund of your student contribution or tuition fees). See our current census dates.
Any student has a right to appeal a decision of the Engineering Institute of Technology (EIT) or any member of the institute’s staff. EIT has a comprehensive Policy on Appeals and Grievances to assist students.
We are one of the only institutes in the world specializing in engineering.
