Undergraduate Certificate in Electrical Engineering

Course Overview

UCEE

Electrical engineers are responsible for designing new systems, solving problems, testing equipment, and working on a wide range of components and systems, including communications systems, power plants, electrical machines, navigation systems, and electrical systems for automobiles and aircraft. Upon completion of this undergraduate certificate, you will have fundamental knowledge, skills, and understanding of the electrical engineering discipline. You will be able to apply fundamental physics, chemistry, electrical circuit theory, and analysis, demonstrate scientific, mathematical, contextual factors and design practice knowledge that has been contextualized for engineering applications.

Funding Available

For a limited period the Australian Government is offering a number of Commonwealth Supported Places (CSP) for eligible students for this program. This means that the fee for this course will be reduced from AU$4,195.20 to AU$500 (AU$125 per unit).

Program Details

The field of engineering concerned with the study and application of electricity and electromagnetism is electrical engineering. Essential to our modern infrastructure and conveniences, electrical engineers employ their skills across a large number of specializations, including the design of household appliances, lighting, building wiring, telecommunication systems, robots, power generation, transmission, distribution, and utilization.

With this qualification, you will have acquired the essential knowledge which underpins both this and other fields of engineering.

You must complete 12 credit points comprising four core units. There are no electives in this program. The full-time program duration is six months over 1 semester (or part-time equivalent). For further study, graduates may consider EIT’s Bachelor of Science (Electrical Engineering).

Unit Code Subjects Credit Points
BSC101C Engineering Mathematics 1 3
BSC102C Electrical Circuit Theory and Analysis 3
BSC203C Engineering Design and Drawing 3
BSC107C Physics and Chemistry for Engineers 3

Entry into this program requires applicants to hold:

  1. A Year 12 Australian Senior Certificate of Education (or equivalent for International Students), completed within the past two years, with the following level of achievement in Maths:
  • WA – WACE scaled score of 50.0 or more.
  • ACT – a scaled mark of 125 or more
  • NSW – performance Band 2 or above
  • QLD – a level of Sound Achievement (S) or above
  • SA/NT – a grade of C- or higher or a Subject achievement score of 10 or more
  • TAS – an award of Satisfactory Achievement or above

Potential job roles include engineering and management positions in the following areas of expertise:

  • Electrical system planning, design, and development
  • Power supply, distribution, and transmission
  • Electrical commissioning and power production management
  • Renewable energy
  • Electrical instrumentation and control
  • Electronics research, design, and testing
  • Operations, maintenance, field services, and technical support
  • Electrical project management and business development
  • Radio and television broadcasting
  • Mining
  • Advanced Automation & Robotic Systems
  • Space Defense Systems

Our undergraduate certificates take six months to complete full time (or part-time equivalent). 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 one week 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.
