What type of jobs available after the completion of the Power plants course?

After this training, students are eligible to work as site engineers. Their job profile generally include installation and commissioning of electrical systems. Knowledge in Sub stations, Switch yards, Water treatment plants etc offer plenty of opportunities for electrical engineers. Every equipment in a power plant, whether it may a boiler, turbine or generator or it may a valve or motor, all the equipment will have its own electrical system. So, our course make students eligible for all these jobs
