Approximately 50 Colleges of Advanced Education have been established in Australia since 1966, of which about 20 have engineering schools. The colleges were created as a direct result of a Federal Government committee's investigation into higher education. The committee recommended the development of more industrially oriented educational institutions as alternatives to the existing research oriented universities. This paper details some of the more important steps leading to the creation of the colleges. It describes how the aims for more industry integrated education are being achieved in the undergraduate electrical power engineering courses at The Capricomia Institute of Advanced Education, one of the smallest and most isolated of the new colleges.
