About Graduate Certificate in Power System Analysis and Design at Engineering Institute of Technology

This Graduate Certificate in Power System Analysis and Design will provide you with an opportunity to develop your knowledge and skills to analyze power systems, stability of systems, power quality analysis and earthing/grounding and protection of electrical systems.  

It offers an opportunity for industry professionals in the field to review, refresh and enhance their knowledge and skills in Power System Analysis and Design without having to complete a full Master’s degree.

A key area of electrical engineering is power system analysis and design. The Graduate Certificate in Power System Analysis and Design covers knowledge and skills to analyze power systems both under steady state and dynamic conditions. It will also cover in-depth principles involving power system protection and power quality analysis covering the applicable international standards. Aspects relating to system stability, including transient stability, small signal stability, frequency and voltage stability as well as measures to enhance system stability as a result of renewable systems integration will also be discussed.  

The learning outcomes of the course is designed to equip students with professional engineering skills and knowledge to model solutions to address power quality problems, simulate various system conditions using industry-based software and undertake design principles for effective substation and protection systems.

Entry requirements

Applicants are required to:

  • Hold a recognized bachelor degree (or above) in engineering or science in a congruent field of practice,
  • Have completed the equivalent of first-year Bachelor level mathematics, or are able to demonstrate recognized relevant work experience.
  • Have an appropriate level of English Language Proficiency at an English pass level in an Australian Senior Certificate of Education, or an IELTS score of 6.0 (with no individual band less than 6.0), or equivalent as outlined in the EIT Admissions Policy.

Applicants who hold a bachelor’s degree in a non-congruent engineering field are required to demonstrate their prior learning and experience is equivalent to the entry requirements (exact positions and roles that will be considered relevant are to be decided by each specialisation and will be considered on a case-by-case basis by the EIT Admissions Committee).

Applicants who do not hold a recognized bachelor’s degree are required to demonstrate their prior learning and experience is equivalent to this qualification. A minimum of an Australian Advanced Diploma (or equivalent) in Engineering and 5 years of technical work experience at a technologist level or above in a relevant engineering field is required for an application to be considered (exact positions and roles that will be considered relevant are to be decided by each specialization and will be considered on a case-by-case basis by the EIT Admissions Committee)

What students think about Engineering Institute of Technology

    Santosh Ghimire: Driven by a Mission to Make Renewable Energy Available for Developing Countries

    Testimonial from Santosh Ghimire: Driven by a Mission to Make Renewable Energy Available for Developing Countries, student at Engineering Institute of Technology

    EIT Master of Engineering student, Santosh Ghimire, had to use a kerosene lamp to study and do his homework while growing up. His formative years in Nepal meant he was part of a sizable portion of the population that didn’t have access to electricity at home.

    Then came a big shift, when Santosh decided to enrol in EIT’s Master of Engineering (Industrial Automation) in 2019, and pursue it on-campus in Australia.

    He had cognizance that while the energy demand is ever-increasing, the use of fossil fuels to generate energy doesn’t have a future. He knows the search for alternative, sustainable, and renewable energy sources will be the next great leap to ensure developing nations have adequate energy for years to come.

    “Development of technologies has dropped the cost of energy produced by renewable technologies, which is now comparable with energy from traditional power plants. As renewable energy technologies are environmentally friendly and the sources are sustainable, a small contribution may be the foundation for the future of the power system,” Santosh believes.

    Martin Masemola: More Than Just a Qualification in Engineering

    Testimonial from Martin Masemola: More Than Just a Qualification in Engineering, student at Engineering Institute of Technology

    Martin Masemola started studying with the plan of obtaining a Master of Engineering degree. He is now one of EIT's first students in our flagship Doctor of Engineering program.

    Martin’s quest to obtain a Master of Engineering degree started in 2003. As a student from South Africa and working full-time as an engineer, there was little option but to enroll in a programme that molded around his needs.

    While his career was thriving, the itch to complete a postgraduate qualification was still there. And that’s when online education became a viable option.

    "I was involved early with EIT when they conducted several surveys on online education when I learned the Master of Engineering qualification were being offered, I checked if the programme would allow me to register as Professional Engineer or if it was a Washington Accord accredited qualification.”

    Shashi Senevirathna: Going Further With EIT’s Master of Engineering in Industrial Automation

    Testimonial from Shashi Senevirathna: Going Further With EIT’s Master of Engineering in Industrial Automation, student at Engineering Institute of Technology

    Currently studying EIT's Master of Engineering (Industrial Automation) at our Melbourne campus and recently appointed as EIT's on-campus Higher Education Ambassador, Shashikala Senevirathna is the definition of a well-rounded engineer.

    Fondly known as Shashi, she started her education pathway in engineering a decade ago at the University of Peradeniya in Sri Lanka. Shashi graduated in 2015 with a Bachelor of Science of Engineering (Mechanical) Honors and since then never really slowed down in terms of not only working in the field of engineering but gaining as much knowledge and experience as possible.

    Her current enrollment at EIT to complete a Master of Engineering (Industrial Automation) and her Master degrees in Professional Accounting (MPA) and Masters in Business Administration (MBA) attests to that.  

    Having knowledge of business and administration is however just the icing on top of the cake.

    Shashi graduated in 2015 with a Bachelor of Science of Engineering (Mechanical) Honors and since then never really slowed down in terms of not only working in the field of engineering but gaining as much knowledge and experience as possible.

    “My mom always tells me, learn something new, read something new - you never know when there will be some use for it one day,” she muses.
