Electrical engineers, which you can become by completing the Electrical and Electronic Engineering programme at the Stellenbosch University, are responsible for the generation, transmission and conversion of electrical energy (including renewable energy sources) in industries such as electricity supply, factories, chemical plants, mines, municipalities, railways, and harbours. 


Key facts

Electronic engineers specialise in the control of electrical and mechanical robotic systems, particularly embedded controllers; the collection, processing and dissemination of information by computer and communication networks, such as cell phone networks, Wi-Fi and mobile data networks; and the design of computers and large software systems.

What we offer

The first part of the Electrical and Electronic Engineering programme at the Stellenbosch University lays a basis of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences that is relevant for all electrical and electronic engineers, particularly the techniques required to model systems analytically and design systems systematically. From the second semester of the third year students can choose to specialise in one of the following elective areas: Robotics, Electrical Energy, Telecommunication or Informatics.

Electrical and electronic engineers are responsible for the development, manufacturing and/or operation of various products or systems. There are numerous employment opportunities in the public and private sector, from local authorities to information technology companies, and from large multinational companies to small specialist companies. The technical area offers many opportunities for entrepreneurs to create new, small high-technology businesses.
