Machines and Motors Skill Set

State ID: GAA32

This skill set is part of UEE62111 Advanced Diploma of Engineering Technology - Electrical, a nationally recognised qualification and is designed to develop the students theoretical and practical skills in the analysis, operation and application of industrial electrical systems in the areas of AC power systems , rotating machines,calculation of circuit network parameters , maintenance in Ore handling operations, motor selection, maintenance techniques and motor protection.

This course requires approximately 6 to 8 hours a week online study using our a Blackboard Learning Management System coupled with an additional 3 hours a week expected attendance at campus for workshops.

Prerequisite Units:
There are prerequisite requirements which are covered as recognition of prior learning (RPL) based on previous qualification and work experience.

Upcoming dates:

  • Commencing Feb, Term 1, 2020
  • Commencing July, Term 3, 2020
    • Every Wednesday 5pm - 8pm from 22 July to 9 December 2020

Course cost:

non concession - $1921.30

Please note, the allocated three hours per week is only for the workshop and lectures and the remaining study has to be done using our LMS system i.e. Backboard. Blackboard is where lecturers will populate their learning content, assignments and lesson plans. It is an expectation that students spend 6 to 8 hours of study time every week outside class hours/skillset.

Delivery location, important dates and study options

This course may be offered with a blended, flexible delivery model to enable social distancing measures to be undertaken during the COVID-19 pandemic. This approach may include a mix of online and classroom based delivery, as well as practical and work experience placements. Lecturers will provide any specific instructions if your training delivery style needs to change.

This course is available for study starting term 1 and term 3 in 2020 with a mix of online study and attendance at Munster campus for workshops. 

This skill set is part of the UEE62111 Advanced Diploma of Engineering Technology - Electrical.
