The rapid development of the renewable field has led to a shortage of fully skilled electrical engineers who are competent in both classic power system operation and renewable system integration. The Graduate Diploma of Engineering (Electrical Systems) is designed in consultation with industry and addresses the issues associated with emerging technologies in electrical power generation, transmission, and distribution systems. The program offers eight core units to provide knowledge, skills and professional competencies required for this industry.
The program is delivered on a part-time intensive basis over 4 terms, each of 12 weeks.
