OverviewWhat is electrical engineering? Electrical engineering involves fields such as electronics, computer systems, telecommunications, bioengineering, control, robotics and electrical power engineering. Electrical engineers design and build systems and machines that generate, transmit, measure, control and use electrical energy essential to modern life.
Electrical engineers are employed in utilities, industry, manufacturing, consulting services and electronic design and development. Graduates of the Bachelor of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (Honours) - Bachelor of Mathematics program from University of Newcastle 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. Average starting salaries for engineers are great – more than $80,000 per annum.
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.
