Electricity generation is a growing industry that is currently suffering from specialised skill shortages. External pressure to optimise and progress power generation technology has pushed this industry into an exciting new era with vast potential. In order to maintain current levels of power generation and to progress forward with a view to satisfy public and social needs, the industry is increasingly looking for specialised professionals to help develop the technology the world will need in the future. The Master of Engineering (Power Generation) has been designed by industry and with industry to provide them with the specialised skills they need to progress.
Online Education, Distance Learning & External study modes available
Developed by expert industry and university staff, the Power Generation program has been tailored for professional engineers and para-professionals already working in the power generation sector. Engineers working in other fields and recent graduates may also enrol in the program as a first step towards building a career in the power generation industry.

The Power Generation Skills Development Program is aimed at the continuing professional development of persons currently employed in the field of engineering within the power generation industry. The programs include a Graduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma and Master of Engineering (Power Generation). The programs are practically focused in that they develop the essential knowledge and skills required by both managers and practitioners to meet the current and future needs of the power generation industry. The key learning outcomes of these programs is to develop the student ability to:
understand philosophies, strategies, procedures and techniques associated with the operation of modern industrial power generation plant;
4 courses/24 units of credit
Requirements for the Graduate Certificate in Power Generation are for each student to complete 4 courses made up of 3 core courses and 1 elective course.
To obtain a Graduate Certificate in Power Generation at CQUniversity a student needs to successfully complete at least 50% of their courses at CQUniversity.
Therefore a student has to complete the CQUniversity core course Asset Management Systems, in addition to the two core courses offered by the partner universities. They must also complete one CQUniversity elective: Power Plant Chemistry, Advanced Power Plant, Bulk Materials and Waste Products or Plant Materials.
