You'll focus on technical areas of electrical engineering, including:
- renewable energy
- high-voltage and protection systems
- power transmission and distribution
- building services
- industry control and automation
You'll gain leading-edge knowledge and skills in power engineering with effective business skills in communication, teamwork and management.
The sectors of smart grid technology and renewable energy are experiencing rapid growth. As a result the field of power engineering has a strong employment market, offering a range of opportunities to electrical engineers.
The Electrical Engineering program at RMIT University is suitable for both electrical engineering graduates looking for specialist knowledge in the latest power engineering technologies, and graduates from another discipline seeking a career change.
With an increasing focus on renewable energy, electrical engineers are in a position to be part of the transformation of the Australian power industry from traditional fossil fuels to renewable energy sources.
You may work in the electrical supply industry where your knowledge of transformers, motors and generators is needed across all areas of operations.
RMIT graduates have gone on to work at a range of organisations including:
- Ausnet Services
- Middleton Group
- Snowy Hydro
- United Energy
- Wilson Transformer Company
Public transport providers also need electrical engineers to develop and maintain the systems that keep trains running and signals operating. With a push to modernise railway infrastructure, engineers are in demand. Within the manufacturing industry robots and automation have become essential elements, and electrical engineers are now called on to design and develop the next-generation control systems that enable this.
