Qualifications

Overview

Efficient and sustainable power generation and transmission is highly important in the modern world, and studying the Power Engineering minor will allow you to investigate power distribution and usage through electrical devices. Systems such as generators, transformers, and motors are widely used within different industries, and therefore need graduates with the expertise to create, maintain, and improve these.

Graduates will find employment in areas such as power generation companies, consultancies, transmission companies, contractors, energy retailers, equipment suppliers, and distribution companies. You may also find the knowledge gained through this minor useful in transport industries that deal with the design of electrical railways, aircraft, and electric motors.

Students study towards the Power Engineering minor alongside Electrical and Electronic Engineering in the Bachelor of Engineering with Honours.
