Overview

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.
