Electrical engineers are needed wherever electrically powered tools, devices or systems need to be designed, manufactured or maintained, and these systems include systems that generate, transmit or distribute electrical energy; systems that acquire, process or deliver information; systems that automate processes and deliver services. Position yourself at the forefront of technology, with a popular degree that gives you a broad range of career options.
You will apply engineering theory to real-world challenges, becoming skilled in power systems, renewable energy, electronics, embedded systems, telecommunications, signal processing, automation and control, project management and systems engineering. Graduate career-ready by completing the UniSA STEM Professional Practice Program and gain at least 450 hours of skills and competencies through a range of engagement activities such as placements, internships, guest lectures, industry panels, site visits, networking and events.
Your career after the Electrical and Electronic Engineering (Honours) degree at University of South Australia
To be a successful electrical and electronic engineer, you should be a good problem solver, show a passion for understanding science, mathematics and technologies, and applying your knowledge to the betterment of the quality of lives. Careers to consider:
- electrical design engineer: creating solutions ranging from small component designs to large-scale systems by studying customer requirements; working on all stages of design for electrical services, from early research and development through to detailed design, installation and final commissioning
- electronics engineer: using nonlinear and active electrical components (such as semiconductor devices, especially transistors, diodes and integrated circuits) to design electronic circuits, devices, VLSI devices and systems
- computer/embedded system engineer: designing and implementing embedded systems performing sensing, communications, signal processing, control for various applications, ranging from consumer appliances to Industrial Internet of Things equipment; dealing with graphics processing units and field-programmable gate arrays for advanced applications
- power systems engineer: designing, building, maintaining, monitoring systems that deal with the generation, transmission, distribution and utilisation of electric power, and the electrical apparatus connected to such systems
- telecommunications engineer: designing, commissioning, maintaining, monitoring the installation of telecommunications equipment and facilities, such as complex electronic switching systems, optical fibre cabling, IP networks, and microwave transmission systems
- control system engineer: selecting, commissioning, designing, maintaining control systems for automated devices, systems (as small as electric toothbrushes or as big as rockets) or processes
- systems engineer: applying a robust approach to the design and management of complex systems over their life cycle, including the integration of a large number of products from multiple vendors
- engineering consultant: providing consulting services to help organisations improve performance and efficiency; analysing businesses and creating solutions to help meet their goals
- entrepreneur: using initiative, commercial acumen and broad ranging business skills to develop or transform a product or service for yourself or an organisation
