    About Power Generation

    Electricity generation is a growing industry that is currently suffering from specialised skill shortages. External pressure to optimise and progress power generation technology has pushed this industry into an exciting new era with vast potential. In order to maintain current levels of power generation and to progress forward with a view to satisfy public and social needs, the industry is increasingly looking for specialised professionals to help develop the technology the world will need in the future. The Master of Engineering (Power Generation) has been designed by industry and with industry to provide them with the specialised skills they need to progress.

    Career Opportunities

    Developed by expert industry and university staff, the Power Generation program has been tailored for professional engineers and para-professionals already working in the power generation sector. Engineers working in other fields and recent graduates may also enrol in the program as a first step towards building a career in the power generation industry.

    Program Structure
