What will you do?

Our Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Electrical and Electronic) is practical right from the first year. Working with our internationally renowned staff who are active in cutting-edge discoveries, you will:

study in state-of-the-art facilities, including a 3D prototyping lab, autonomous vehicles lab, and electric machines lab
work on practical and relevant projects with industry partners
take core subjects in maths, physics, computing and systems engineering
complete an eight-week practical experience.

Career Readiness

Now and into the future, Australia and the world will need electrical and electronic engineers to work in mining and power distribution, infrastructure, e-commerce, and to develop technologies for advanced manufacturing.

The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Electrical and Electronic) provides students with the technical knowledge and skills for careers across a range of specialist areas including power distribution, computing, medical technology, defence, and communications systems.

The program is highly regarded by employers. Our graduates have secured roles with leading technology companies worldwide—including Google—and with companies across the defence, energy and electronics sectors.

Areas of Specialisation:

Communication Systems: Communication systems engineers design and manage complex hardware and software, such as mobile, Internet and broadcast networks. In this major, students develop skills to work in industries including defence, mobile phone networks, satellite communications, and infrastructure systems.

Computer Engineering: The Computer Engineering major focuses on the design, development and use of computers to control devices, equipment and processes, including robots, automated infrastructure, and autonomous devices. Graduates can secure jobs in fields such as industrial automation, logistics, and e-commerce.

Cybersecurity: Cybersecurity is a high-growth industry. As more devices and systems are connecting to the Internet—creating the Internet of Things —employers are increasingly seeking graduates who can develop secure and robust systems.

Defence Systems: South Australia is Australia’s defence state and home to many important defence investments and industries, including shipbuilding and the over-the-horizon radar project.

Medical Technologies: The Medical Technologies major offers a broad choice of study across physiology and the health sciences. It covers the use of electronic sensors and information processing in medical research, diagnosis and treatment.

Renewable Energy: The Renewable Energy major exposes students to a broad range of engineering and regulatory topics, and prepares them for careers in a rapidly changing industry.

Smart Technologies: The cross-disciplinary Smart Technologies major prepares students for careers in the fascinating field of artificial intelligence, and provides a broader perspective than direct artificial intelligence or electronics majors.
