Teaching and learning
The School of Electrical and Data Engineering teaches in the areas of networking and telecommunications, cybersecurity, image processing, computing infrastructure, electrical and electronic engineering, at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels within the Engineering and IT programs.
In 2017, the School launched a major in Data Engineering as part of the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) Program. This is the first program in Australia focused on developing professional engineers with the specific knowledge and skills to build the future secure cyber-physical infrastructures and systems to enable business and society to maximise the potential of our data-driven world.
Students will learn the theoretical foundations, entrepreneurial values and practical and professional skills to build secure cyber-physical infrastructures and systems driving collection, transmission, storage and analysis of data. Students will learn practical hardware, software and integration skills to build complex data-intensive systems of the future. Graduates will be equipped to apply innovative, human-centred approaches to building data-intensive systems that can help to address society’s big challenges.
Specialisations within the Data Engineering program include:
- Data Analytics
- Real-Time Systems (Internet of Things)
- Image Processing, Multimedia and Pattern Recognition
Customise your degree with these four majors:
- Bachelor of Engineering (Honours), Diploma in Professional Engineering Practice, major in Data Engineering
- Bachelor of Engineering (Honours), Diploma in Professional Engineering Practice, major in Electronic Engineering
- Bachelor of Engineering (Honours), Diploma in Professional Engineering Practice, major in Electrical Engineering
- Bachelor of Engineering (Honours), Diploma in Professional Engineering Practice, major in Electrical and Electronic Engineering
The School also teaches an undergraduate major in Networking and Cybersecurity within the Bachelor of Science in Information Technology. This major prepares IT graduates with the professional knowledge and skills to work as network administrators, designers and managers, as well as network security specialists.
At postgraduate level, the School delivers Masters programs in the areas of internetworking, telecommunications, cybersecurity and electrical energy systems. The first three degrees are focused on developing advanced professionals and future researchers in the field of networking, telecommunications and cybersecurity offer students the chance to blend curriculum from leading industry vendors together with the study of emerging networking technologies from our world-leading researchers. Our postgraduates electrical engineering program develops professionals with skills in building future-ready sustainable electrical energy systems
