Electrical and electronic engineers combine a range of communication and electrical energy technologies to underpin the ongoing transformation of how humans commute, stay connected, and consume energy.
What will I learn?
With emerging technologies in the Internet of Things (IoT) and microgrid, for example, distributed energy and communication systems have enabled more flexible use of power and information.
An increasing demand now exists for analytical techniques and design skills in devices, software, and systems being able to handle increasing system complexity, particularly in terms of security, efficiency, and reliability. In this program, you’ll learn about communication electronic circuits and sensors, electrical energy circuits and systems, IoT components and software, digital intelligent control and embedded systems, and renewable energy systems design and operation.
You’ll graduate with practical skills in hardware and software that enable you to design, development, and control a range of IoT devices and energy systems.
You can work in any of the areas suggested for the flexible major, as well as finding opportunities with:
- Wireless and IoT technology companies and product developers
- Transportation sector focusing on electrification
- Defence agencies and military hardware manufacturers
- Power and energy companies, including utilities and sustainable energy providers
