Why choose electrical engineering?
As an electrical engineer you will combine mathematics, science, technology and problem solving skills to design, construct and maintain electrical products and services. Electrical engineering is rapidly advancing and you will have the opportunity to work within challenging and exciting fields such as nano-technology, robotics and renewable energy. Electrical engineering is the major area of expertise behind control and automation, telecommunications, signal processing, analogue and digital electronics, and power generation and distribution.
Why study with us?
You will be taught in modern laboratory facilities by teaching staff who are recognised internationally for outstanding research and for being leaders in their field. You have the opportunity to put theory into practice with an industry-related project in your final year of study.
What will I study?
This degree covers the essential concepts of electrical engineering including electrical circuits, electronics, software, mathematics, physics and engineering management. You can choose from a range of electives including analogue electronics, power electronics, control and automation, computer hardware, electromagnetics, microprocessor applications, power systems, signal processing and telecommunications.
Electrical engineers are in demand nationally and internationally in industries such as power generation, power distribution, mining, manufacturing, defence, computing and telecommunications. Within these industries, graduates have the potential to work in areas such as renewable energy, electronics, robotics, industrial automation, control, electrical drives, power and energy systems, telecommunications and biomedical instrumentation.
