How to Enter

To become a Substation Engineer, most of New Zealand’s employers will expect you to have a Bachelor of Engineering degree focusing on Electrical Engineering. In addition, previous experience in the Rail industry can be highly sought after. 

 

Typical Responsibilities

The typical responsibilities of a Substation Engineer can include the following:

  • Designing and building electrical grids through networks of wiring and equipment
  • Repairing and replacing worn out, damaged or poorly installed wiring and equipment
  • Testing electrical systems to ensure stability and safety
  • Creating budget reports and logging work completed
  • Ensuring all work completed is compliant with regulatory and Health & Safety standards
