Overview

The Electronic Engineering degree offered at the University of Pretoria  was developed over many years to provide exactly what the industry expects from such an engineer. This is an exciting world, and since the ‘half-life’ of microelectronics and photonics is only approximately two-and-a-half years, there are constant improvements and developments. 

Electronic engineering is used in almost all information, communication and technology (ICT) application fields, especially those of telecommunications (cell phones, broadcasting, internet service providers (ISPs), telecommunications companies (Telcos), global positioning systems (GPSs), transport (aeroplanes, ships, trains, motor cars), consumer equipment (iPods, induction stoves, fridges, microwaves, television sets), peace-keeping operations (avionics, night vision, electronic warfare, drones), medicine (bioengineering, diagnostic systems, rehabilitation engineering, intensive care units, laser surgery), robotics (mechatronics, mine robots, spacecraft), entertainment (video games, shows, casinos), mining, manufacturing, navigation, communication, satellite surveillance (day and night), access control (face recognition) and photonics (lasers, optical fibres, networking).

Career Opportunities

Electronic engineering graduates have access to a wide range of job opportunities, which include working for companies (large or small) anywhere in the world as employees, or being entrepreneurs or self-employed. Research and development opportunities are available at South African electronics and microelectronics companies and research institutes (such as the CSIR), and at universities all over the world. Graduates in electronic engineering have the opportunity to be innovative, ie to identify real-life problems and to come up with solutions, which they might be able to patent. The academic programme at the University of Pretoria prepares students to become leaders in the field of electronic engineering—with excellent financial rewards and professional satisfaction.
