Power System Engineer Jobs
How to Enter
The job of a Power System Engineer can be dangerous and complicated, so New Zealand’s Power, Energy & Mining employers expect professionals to hold a relevant degree, such as a Bachelor of Engineering, to prove their competency. Alternatively, a three-year degree in Engineering Technology enables people to become an Engineer Technologist, and often work in more specialised and narrower fields.
The typical job responsibilities of a Power System Engineer can include some or all the following:
- Developing and updating designs for electrical systems and equipment
- Developing ways to generate, distribute, and manage electricity
- Designing automated and computerised methods of controlling electrical processes
- Developing instruction manuals for new electrify systems and equipment
- Installing and maintaining electrical systems and equipment
- Calculating the costs of projects and materials
- Conducting electricity system tests and resolving any faults
- Writing reports on work completed
The next logical step for many Power System Engineers is a move into management or project management positions. Whilst these are both fantastic career paths, other rewarding options for Engineers include becoming consultants at engineering consultation firms and moving into other areas of Engineering, such as Environmental, Mechanical or Civil.
