Overview

As with all engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering is a creative field, combining creativity with scientific knowledge to develop new and innovative solutions to address humanity's various challenges. 

One can say that the Electrical and Electronic Engineer is at the forefront of scientific progress, applying their skills and knowledge to solve problems ranging from the most mundane to the most challenging and sophisticated.

The curriculum of this Electrical and Electronic Engineering (Hons) programme from the University of Malta is built on several technology pillars, namely mathematics, electrical engineering, electronics engineering, software, control, communications and computer systems, with additional subjects in management and professional issues. 

The programme provides substantial opportunity for practical work that is well balanced with theoretical instruction and lecturing. 

The student is able to demonstrate subject knowledge and understanding through standard methods of assessment, namely an end-of-study-unit examination and continuous assessment (coursework). 

Furthermore, a team project and final year project will also contribute to direct hands-on learning of engineering design skills, project management, subject knowledge, integration and understanding. Management and other soft skills, as well as personal development are an integral part of the course.

By graduation the students will have acquired the following learning outcomes:

Knowledge and understanding of:

  • The concepts, fundamental theories and scientific principles of EEE
  • Mathematical principles necessary for the application of engineering science
  • The integration of engineering disciplines with other multidisciplinary engineering fields
  • The social, legal, economic and environmental context
  • The use of analytical, computational and design methods used in engineering
  • Management techniques necessary for the integration of professional engineering in society
  • The underlying principles of the use of information technology and literature

Career opportunites and access to further studies

Today’s world is a friendly place to the EEE graduate, who quickly finds employment in extremely diverse fields as allowed by one of the most versatile professions. The course is designed to provide broad based fundamental knowledge to facilitate job mobility.

The National Employability Index Report issued by the Ministry for Education and Employment has found that for graduation years 2012 and 2013, between 80 and 90% of University of Malta Engineering graduates quickly found employment in fields directly related to their studies. Salaries are very good and potential for personal growth is limited only by your imagination and motivation. 

If money is any indication of success, it may suffice to say that the most common profession (by far) among the world’s billionaires is engineering.
