Three great reasons to pursue a Master of Professional Engineering in Electrical Engineering
Strong industry partners
We maintain strong, collaborative relationships with companies in Australia and around the world to advance teaching and research. Some of our major Electrical Engineering partners include AICA Power, Jacobs, Horizon Power, Western Power, Synergy and Transperth.
Unique learning facilities
Curtin’s Green Electric Energy Park is an innovative lab incorporating futuristic power system concepts based on environmentally friendly, renewable energy technologies. It includes a monitoring station that measures and collects data on how power generation changes depending on weather conditions.
Strong practical focus
Most units are 50% theory and 50% practical, so you can get the most out of our leading research facilities.
You will experience a practical application of engineering principles, as well as theory around entrepreneurship as you progress in your career. In your second year project, you will learn to develop real world solutions for a real industry problem from different fields including farms, councils, and transport and energy companies.
Find out about our other Electrical majors
Our world is characterised by the ever-increasing number of intelligent devices that have embedded computers. Embedded systems are computers with specialised input or output devices that may or may not be programmed by the end user.
In this major, you will study intermediate and advanced topics in embedded systems, such as embedded systems in field-programmable gate arrays and embedded software engineering.
Telecommunications and networking
With the rapid progress of information technology, the role of communications is becoming even more crucial for increasing industry efficiency and competition.
This major explores relevant topics in telecommunications and networking, like mobile radio communications, sensor networks and data network security.
Emerging power systems
Emerging power systems is an area of engineering that has arisen due to the rapid growth of renewable energy, power electronics and energy storage. It has been driven by advances in information technology and communication, which have led to smart grids and micro grids.
This major addresses challenges in the generation, transmission and distribution of electricity. Emergent technologies such as smart grid and distributed generation are covered in detail.
