Technological developments in electrical engineering in recent years include substantial progress in the power fields of transmission, distribution, and utilization. Consequently, in common with other disciplines of electrical engineering, these advances make necessary some changes in existing tertiary courses if they are to keep abreast of developing technology. This is the case both in the undergraduate and graduate programs and is generating an increasing need for continuing education courses. This paper describes changes made in the power courses, at all levels, at the University of New South Wales in response to these pressures. Particular emphasis is given to laboratory developments in the high voltage and high current field, as this is seen as one area in particular need of development.
