•  Assistant Electrical Engineer

Upon graduation, you are also eligible to apply for an Electrical Technician Licence issued by the Energy Market Authority which will boost your employment options in the electrical industry.

Most of our engineering fresh graduates will begin their career as an Assistant Engineer, progress to Engineer and then advance to Senior Engineer after they have gained technical experience in the field.
