Electrical Engineers

Energy is a crucial element in the development and maintenance of modern society, allowing for high quality of life, technological advances and business progression. One form of energy is electricity, which is utilized in almost every corner of the world including transportation, housing, entertainment, medical, defense, finance, education and business.

The invention of electricity and its subsequent development and growth, typically through research and experimentation, would not have been possible without the knowledge gained by scientists and designers. As electrical technology developed it was apparent that a new type of specialist was required which bought together both science and design; this specialist was an electrical engineer.

Electrical engineering is a technically challenging discipline and requires a high level of science, physics, mathematics, design, problem-solving and communication skills. An electrical engineer is required to have an in-depth understanding of not only electrical processes and systems, but engineering standards, legal obligations, workplace health & safety along with other rules and regulations. Where electricity is involved, safety must be considered as the highest priority.

Electrical engineers have an in-depth knowledge of electrical equipment and systems, including but not limited to:

  • Power Generation
  • Transmission
  • Distribution
  • Reticulation
  • Substations
  • Protection
  • Testing
  • Transformers
  • Switchgear
  • Cabling – underground & overhead
  • PLC
  • Instrumentation
  • Telecommunications
  • Measurement and Control
  • Monitoring
