Master of Engineering Science (Power Engineering)

University of Southern Queensland

Program Overview

  • If you want to become a Professional Power Engineer, and have an Australian 3 year engineering degree (or recognised equivalent international degree) but no work experience, the Master of Engineering Science (Power Engineering) will provide a pathway.
  • Throughout the degree there is an emphasis on practical experience with hands-on laboratory sessions and 60 days industry experience, preparing you thoroughly for the engineering profession.
  • You will complete a research project and dissertation applying all your formal knowledge to a real world problem. Whether this is smart grids, microgrids, energy storage systems, for future electricity distribution or the capture of solar energy, your project will provide insight to the profession of a Power Engineer.
  • The research project and dissertation can also be a stepping stone to further research degrees, such as PhD.
