Overview

Put yourself at the forefront of technological advancement with a degree specialising in the field that has powered the modern world – electrical and electronic engineering.

Electrical engineers devise solutions to generate and use electrical power efficiently and cleanly. They design, implement and maintain electronic devices and systems, including those found in critical infrastructure.

In this program, you will learn about the generation, distribution and application of electrical energy. It also focuses on the design and control of the electrical and electronic devices and systems. 

You will learn how to put theory into practice by prototyping electronic designs and building projects through experimentation in the laboratory.
