Specialist power engineering programs for the rapid development of new graduate capabilities
conference contributionposted on 06.12.2017, 00:00 by Peter WolfsPeter Wolfs, S Islam
A specialist graduate program, the Master of Engineering Science (Electrical Utility Engineering), has been developed to allow new graduates joining the transmission and distribution industry to undertake a structured program of study to support their early career development. The course work program contains modules that focus on the technical design issues encountered by new graduates and an industry focused project. The course work is arranged in four-week modules that are often delivered by industry based lecturers. Assessment is primarily through industry based case study assignments. In many instances industry partners elect to automatically enrol new graduates into the program as a part of their Graduate Development Program. The paper will assess the effectiveness of the program over the past four years.
