What will I learn?

Highlights

  • Graduate with an internationally recognised qualification that provides you with career opportunities overseas.
  • Study the design, research, development, planning, manufacture and management of electrical systems and devices.
  • Prepares you to work in power, robotics, manufacturing, mining, bioengineering, telecommunications, transport, or transmission industries.

Why choose this course?

Our courses have strong industry links, real-world lecturers and a practical focus, which ensure you will be work ready, with the ability to design and maintain cutting-edge products for the information and communication industries. You will be exposed to challenging, practical experience through laboratories and design projects to make immediate contributions to industry.

Our engineering courses, whether a single or double degree, now include honours-level content integrated throughout the course. A bachelor honours degree is a higher-level qualification than a bachelor degree, and along with the advanced knowledge and skills, it will benefit you in your professional career, or future research and study. The duration of the degree remains unchanged: a single engineering honours degree is a four-year program, and a double degree is five years.

Electrical engineering deals with the design, research, development, planning, manufacture and management of electrical systems and devices which underpin modern economies and contribute to quality of life. Electrical engineers work with equipment ranging from heavy power generators to tiny computer chips. They work with senior administrators, civil and mechanical engineers, computer scientists and various workers in the business, building and construction industries. If you are interested in working with your hands and technical equipment, and making things happen, an electrical engineering career could be for you.
