Discover how to work as part of a diverse engineering team
Learn how to design, plan, manage, and execute electrical engineering projects with the use of industry leading tools and software. Work in the execution of mechatronics-based projects using automation tools such as logic controllers, pneumatic systems, sensors, actuators, automation software, and more.
Gain these skills
- Develop design briefs for electrotechnology projects incorporating all client requirements and system design specification in accordance with Australian standards
- Understand and use automation tools such as limit switches, level switches, reflective sensors, I/O devices (e.g. logic controllers), pneumatic and electrical actuators in the execution of electrotechnology projects.
- Apply industry and community standards while carrying out engineering activities
- Produce detailed drawings of electrical control circuitry and layout
- Analyse risk in line with Australian safety standards and develop a comprehensive risk management plan for any given electrotechnology project
- Project manage the complete lifecycle of the design process from conception and initiation, to planning, execution, performance/monitoring and project close

Requirements of the course
This course requires both on-campus practical and theory classes; and connectivity to learning management systems for self-paced study.
On-campus practical and theory classes:
For 3 hours every week, you will need to attend workshops and lectures on-campus.
Connectivity to learning management systems for self-paced study:
Once enrolled, you will receive information about how to login to our eCampus. Your study will include 6 to 8 hours a week using Blackboard, where you will access learning content, assignments, lesson plans and pre-reading for classes, at your place of choice, on or off-campus. To access the full suite of software activities, you will need to use College computers at Munster campus.
Students will need to have studied the following units prior to undertaking this skill set:
- UEENEEEI101A – Apply Occupational Health and Safety regulations, codes and practices in the workplace
