The Electrical and Electronic Engineering (Honours) - Computer Systems Engineering (Honours) program from the University of Newcastle trains engineers capable of solving the greatest global challenges.
As an electrical and electronic engineer you can help develop precision agriculture technology to increase food production efficiency, refine aircraft electrical systems and even build smart grid systems to help manage alternative energy resources.
Or, like our team of researchers, you could develop medical technology such as the artificial pancreas.
What is electrical and electronic engineering?
What is electrical and electronic engineering? Electrical and electronic engineering involves fields such as electronics, computer systems, telecommunications, bioengineering, control, robotics and electrical power engineering.
Electrical and electronic engineers design and build systems and machines that generate, transmit, measure, control and use electrical energy essential to modern life.
Your skills in computer systems engineering will help you to combine creativity with technology to develop both hardware and software for electronic and microprocessor-based systems.
Why study with us?
- Real-world insights: connect with industry through projects, guest lecturers, and mentoring.
- Hands-on practical experience: build vital professional networks and hands-on industry experience with 12 weeks of professional practice throughout your degree.
- Travel the world with international recognition through Engineers Australia. You can even start while you’re studying with international exchanges and scholarships available.
Electrical engineers are employed in utilities, industry, manufacturing, consulting services and electronic design and development.
Graduates might focus on electronics engineering. They could specialise in automation and control engineering, or they may work in robotic engineering or power generation and distribution.
Electrical engineering is flexible and diverse. You may prefer hands-on fieldwork, design and development, or a leadership role managing people and projects. Typical positions include:
- telecommunications equipment designer
- electrical design engineer
- automatic systems designer
- robotics engineer
- biomedical instrumentation designer
- renewable energy systems engineer
Remarkably, engineering is the most commonly held degree among the highest performing Fortune 500 CEOs – the CEOs of companies such as Google, Microsoft, Amazon and Tesla Motors are all engineers.
