Murdoch University's 4th year Power Electronic Engineering students visited Magellan this week to witness an Australian manufacturing facility in action.
The students were given a tour of the facility in Bibra Lake, and were shown a number of locally made power electronic devices, including the MCRII Battery Charger, Home Energy Storage System (HESS), and Stand-Alone Power System (SPS).
Magellan Power Managing Director Masoud Abshar says it is important to teach new engineers the options of working in design and manufacturing in Western Australia.
"It is so rare these days to have a company that designs and makes equipment here, and not in Germany or the US or China. That offers exciting opportunities for graduates who have studied power electronics."
Students from Murdoch University learning about Magellan's recent projects.
Magellan has been supplying industrial back-up power systems such as Battery Chargers, UPS and more recently Energy Storage systems since 1991. It is a growing business which often has opportunities for graduate engineers.
