About this course

Electrical engineering is concerned with electrical and electronic devices and systems. Electrical engineers work with equipment ranging from heavy power generators to tiny computer chips. Their work contributes to almost every sector of society: for exmaple, home theatre entertainment systems, mobile phones, digital cameras and television to enhance our lifestyle, medical imaging systems for improved health care, electrical appliances for homes, scientific instruments for laboratories, lasers for reliable high speed communication, handheld multimedia devices to provide information on the move, and satellite systems for remote sensing of the environment and reliable mobile and fixed energy systems to power all of these. Electrical engineers usually work in one of six specialty areas: power generation and transmission; electronics; computers; communication systems; instrumentation and measurement; and automatic controls.

This major builds on the first three years of the BE (Electrical) which progresses through a broad foundation of preparatory courses in engineering, mathematics, software engineering and physics, followed by more advanced coursework and laboratory training.

Employment opportunities:

Career opportunities are found in the telecommunications industry, mining and transport sector, computer industry, or in power generation and transmission industries. They are also employed by electronics companies, both large and small.
