GE Digital and Monash Engineering partnership help prepare students for the energy needs of the future

A positive future for Australia’s energy industry will require, among other things, dynamic and well-trained graduates who are prepared to address pressing issues head-on. We are delighted to announce that GE Digital are partnering with Monash Engineering to equip students with hands-on experience in the Energy Management Systems that are used in industry, through a $5.45m software donation of the GE e-terra platform suite and the GE Digital Energy ADMS platforms.

We are delighted to announce that GE Digital are partnering with Monash Engineering to equip students with hands-on experience in the Energy Management Systems that are used in industry, through a $5.45m software donation of the GE e-terra platform suite and the GE Digital Energy ADMS platforms.

Exposure to this software will give engineering students great insight into how power network operators harness such platforms to guarantee reliable and secure operation of complex power networks that integrate significant renewable energy resources.

Thanks to this partnership with GE Digital, we can ensure that our students are graduating with the knowledge and experience that will be required for the future needs of Australia’s energy industry.

Sixty students are already taking advantage of this partnership, and a very keen cohort of over 20 Monash University students from various faculties will attend the upcoming GE Digital Energy 2019 APAC Conference.
