About this program

On Campus Master of Engineering (Electrical Systems)

The Master of Engineering (Electrical Systems), developed by electrical and renewable energy experts, will equip you with the necessary skills and knowledge to address the demands of the modern power industry. You will learn how to design the components of a power system including generation, transmission, distribution and the associated systems. The program will also cover the automation, protection and control components that contribute to the high level of reliability expected from modern power systems.

Admission requirements

Entry Requirements

To gain entry into this program, we require applicants to hold:

  1. A recognized 3-year bachelor degree* in an engineering qualification in a congruent** field of practice; OR
  2. An EIT Bachelor of Science (Engineering) degree* in a congruent** field of practice; OR
  3. A 4-year Bachelor of Engineering qualification (or equivalent) that is recognized under the Washington Accord or by Engineers Australia, in a congruent**, or a different field of practice at the discretion of the Admissions Committee; OR
  4. A 4-year Bachelor of Engineering qualification (or equivalent)* that is not recognized under the Washington Accord, in a congruent** field of practice to this program; AND
  5. An appropriate level of English Language Proficiency equivalent to 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.


All higher education students studying on campus must complete an English proficiency test during orientation week. If you fail the initial test, you must complete additional English language support classes. If you fail again, you will be considered a student at risk and managed in accordance with EIT’s Student at Risk Policy.
