    Employment Outcomes

    Electrical Engineering deals with the generation, distribution, and use of electric power. This includes generators, motors, transformers, batteries and renewable energy systems. The Associate Degree in Electrical Engineering was developed by TAFE SA to respond to the workforce development needs of the electrical industry in South Australia. The electrical industry is one of South Australia’s major employers – and one of the State’s growth areas. The employment opportunities for the graduates of this course are in a range of industries, including electricity generation and distribution, production line processing, mining and other industrial and commercial industries. Your work may involve overseeing the condition of electrical equipment, maintain and commissioning electrical equipment or work alongside engineers to design and prototype advanced electrical technology.

    Note: Completion of a TAFE SA course does not guarantee an employment outcome. Formal requirements other than educational qualifications (eg licensing, professional registration), may apply to some occupations.

    Qualifications & Skills Covered

    Diploma of Electrical Engineering (UEE50411)
    This qualification provides competencies to develop, select, commission, maintain and diagnose faults/malfunctions on advanced electrical equipment and systems. 23 core units plus electives.

    Associate Degree in Electrical Engineering (CRS1400352)
    The associate degree gives students a firm foundation in both theoretical study and practical skills, with an emphasis on strong site management skills as needed by the construction industry. A typical study program in the first year includes electrical engineering practice, including WHS and sustainability, engineering mathematics and physics, basic analog circuits, introduction to electrical machines, and engineering programming. The second year includes electrical machines, mechatronics, project management and final year engineering project. In your small class, you will work on real-world examples and combined with the guaranteed work experience in the field, you will develop the attributes needed to succeed in Australia’s technology-based industries. The course offers work placement and industry-based final year projects.

    Note: Students who successfully complete only one or more units of competency but not the full Qualification are eligible to receive a Statement of Attainment.
