This course is designed for graduates from a four-year Engineering undergraduate degree not accredited by Engineers Australia in a related discipline.

The course is not suitable for graduates of a four-year undergraduate degree, with Engineers Australia accreditation in the same discipline. Those holding an EA accredited qualification and seeking a masters level qualification in the same discipline are encouraged to consider applying for entry to the Master of Philosophy or Master of Engineering Management.

Applicants seeking entry who do not hold a four year Engineering degree are required to first complete the one-year Graduate Diploma in Professional Engineering.

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.

During the course, you will gain at least 12 weeks of exposure to engineering professional practice and keep a formal log book to record your experience. During your final-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.

Advanced standing

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.
