As a graduate in the Electrical stream, you will be involved in developing the electrical design for a project. The projects can be from various market sectors like, Transport such as train stations, Commercial sector including Office buildings or spaces or even Mission critical locations like Data centres. 

Each sector leans on different requirements and has emphasis on different aspects of design. For example, Mission Critical requires having a lot of backup infrastructure ensuring the data on site is hardly ever offline.

You will gain experience in Maximum Demand Calculations which determine the amount of “power” required for a project. This is the basis for determining our electrical infrastructure, such as cable sizes and circuit breaker sizes. 

Another aspect is Lighting Calculations that determine the illuminance levels required for a project. This is the basis for selecting luminaires and understanding the lighting control philosophy.

Also reviewing documentation such as existing power drawings and Single Line Diagrams and assessing them against requirements, standards and codes. 

You will have the chance to work on a variety of different projects & with different clients which means you will also need to go out to site and see your design come to life which gives you the opportunity to express yourself through your design.
