The program aims: to equip graduates with the academic, personal, professional and technical knowledge, skills and understanding required to commence practice as a Graduate Engineering Technologist in Australia or overseas with appropriate social, cultural, industrial and environmental contexts; to graduate students who can demonstrate the knowledge, skills, practices and values inherent in contemporary understandings of best practice in vocational education and training, particularly as these understandings are reflected in the expectations of industry and key training organizations; to equip graduates with knowledge and understanding appropriate to working as educators with learners in the post-compulsory years and in a range of adult education and training settings. USQ's Electrical Engineering program gives students the opportunity to get hands-on with modern electronic technology. With practical studies they will work with transmitters, microprocessors, power electronic converters, robotics, fibre optics and motors to prepare them for work out in the field. Electrical engineers design, build and operate electrical devices and systems from small scale transmitters to major projects in the fields of medicine, power and technology. With their graduate expertise, students will be able to secure a career as an electrical or electronic technologist with major power companies including Ergon Energy, Origin and Energex. The Bachelor of Vocational Education and Training program aims to graduate students who demonstrate: the knowledge, skills, practices and values inherent in contemporary understandings of best practice in vocational education and training, particularly as these understandings are reflected in the expectations of industry and key training organizations; the qualities and skills required of a USQ graduate; the attributes of an Education graduate; sound levels of knowledge and understanding appropriate to working as educators with learners in the post-compulsory years and in a range of adult education and training settings. Applicants of the Bachelor of Vocational Education and Training need to have a recognised formal trade or professional qualification and work experience in their proposed training area. Exemptions are available, dependent on their qualifications and work experience, helping students reach their personal and professional goals sooner. As a graduate of this degree students will be well-placed to work in the engineering sector in adult education environments such as TAFE, technical colleges and industry. As a graduate of the Bachelor of Engineering Science, students will be eligible to apply for membership with Engineers Australia as an Engineering Technologist. After gaining some experience from working in the field, they can apply for chartered status as an Engineering Technologist. After complete of the education components of this degree, graduates may be eligible to apply for recognition towards a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. This qualification meets the industry standard for training delivery in Australia's VET system. The program is not accredited with the Queensland College of Teachers. This program is also offered by faculty of health, engineering and sciences (HES).
