This course is designed to meet the needs of electrical, electrical power, electronic and telecommunication engineers who are looking to open up their career prospects. [+]

Master of Engineering Science (Electrical Engineering) This course is designed to meet the needs of electrical, electrical power, electronic and telecommunication engineers who are looking to open up their career prospects. You will specialise in one of three majors: Emerging Power Systems, Telecommunication and Networking, or Embedded Systems. Among a wide range of optional units, you may study electrical power, renewable energy, communications and computer engineering at the system level and the component level. The course is designed to allow you to undertake further studies in a field of your preference through advanced coursework and a major project, ultimately developing a prototype and presenting a formal thesis on the outcome. With the approval of the course coordinator, you may also include a unit from the Curtin Business School, or the Department of Computing, or the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. EMERGING POWER SYSTEMS (314675) Global demands on resources have placed an urgent emphasis on supplying a growing population with affordable, environmentally responsible power. How we manage this challenging paradigm will rely on a new generation of creative, technically savvy engineers. Since fossil fuels are a finite resource, the development of alternative sources of electrical energy such as solar and wind is vital. The challenges that face you as a power engineer include interfacing renewable sources to the electricity distribution system, maintaining stability in the presence of many small energy sources and guaranteeing an electrical supply in the presence of intermittent sources such as solar power. This major addresses challenges in... [-]
