Join the Electrical and Electronic Engineering (Honours) degree at University of South Australia and learn about power systems, renewable energy, electronics, software development, embedded systems, telecommunications, signal processing, automation and control, project management, systems engineering, and prepare for Industry 4.0 using cutting-edge software platforms and more.


Electrical engineers are needed wherever electrically powered tools, devices or systems need to be designed, manufactured or maintained. These systems include those that:

  • generate, transmit or distribute electrical energy
  • acquire, process or deliver information, and
  • automate processes and deliver services.
Professionally accredited by Engineers Australia, this degree is strongly hands-on, with significant opportunities to apply engineering theory to real-world challenges. In your final year, you’ll complete a major honours research project as well as an industry-focused design project.You will develop skills in power systems, renewable energy, electronics, embedded systems, telecommunications, signal processing, robotics, automation and control, project management and systems engineering.

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 technology, and applying your knowledge to the betterment of the quality of lives.Careers to consider:
  • Electrical Design Engineer: study customer needs to create solutions ranging from small component designs to large-scale systems; working on all stages of design for electrical services including early research and development through to detailed design, installation and final commissioning
  • Electronics Engineer: use 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: design and implement embedded systems performing sensing, communications, signal processing and control for various applications, ranging from consumer appliances to Industrial Internet of Things equipment. You will deal with graphics processing units and field-programmable gate arrays for advanced applications.
  • Power Systems Engineer: design, build, maintain and monitor systems that deal with the generation, transmission, distribution and use of electric power, and electrical apparatus connected to such systems.
  • Telecommunications Engineer: design, commission, maintain and monitor the installation of telecommunications equipment and facilities, such as complex electronic switching systems, optical fibre cabling, IP networks, and microwave transmission systems.
