Get the Curtin edge
Access to leadership programs, specialist facilities and industry placements give you a competitive edge in the job market.
Gain at least 12 weeks of exposure to professional practice.
Electricity is a key energy source in the development and progress of contemporary society. Since fossil fuels are a finite resource, developing alternative sources of electrical energy such as solar and wind is vital.
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.
During your one-year project, you will further investigate and apply emergent technologies in power systems.
This major sits within the Master of Professional Engineering degree. To apply for this major, you will apply for the Master of Professional Engineering.
What you'll learn
- Refer to Master of Professional Engineering for Course Learning Outcomes
At Curtin, we understand that everyone’s study journey has been different.
You may have already studied some of the units (subjects) listed in your Curtin course, or you may have work experience that matches the degree requirements.
If this applies to you, you can apply for credit for recognised learning (CRL), which means your previous study is recognised and matched against a similar unit in your intended Curtin course.
A successful CRL application exempts you from having to complete certain units within your course and means you could finish your degree in a shorter amount of time.
CRL is also known as recognition of prior learning, advanced standing and credit transfer.
Use the CRL search to find out how much CRL you qualify for, or contact us at:
