Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical Power) Honours

Edith Cowan University ECU

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00279B

Electrical power engineering is a well-established engineering discipline encompassing electrical power generation, transmission and distribution. The course provides broad coverage across a range of core electrical and electronic subjects, leading to more in-depth studies of power systems including generation, transmission and protection, as well as power electronics, electromechanical systems, industrial control, and renewable energy. The program focuses on the development of knowledge and skills relevant to professional engineering practice and along with a sound theoretical base, includes strong elements of practical problem solving, team work and project development. As a result, as well as having multiple technical and transferable skill competencies, graduates will gain strong analytical skills, and have the ability to lead complex projects. The course provides a sound basis in mechanics, dynamics, mathematics, and the principles of engineering design in the first two years of study, along with a broad basis in engineering science including materials and manufacturing, computer aided design, programming principles, and analogue and digital electronics. In the final two years of study, a range of specialist electrical power engineering topics are covered to prepare students to enter their chosen profession with relevant knowledge and skills. The first year of this course includes a set of eight units that are common across all engineering honours courses. This allows students the opportunity to develop a better understanding of the various engineering disciplines on offer and the flexibility, if desired, to switch to another engineering discipline/course without penalty after the first year of study.
