Electrical Engineering, BEng

This is our newest Specialised Honours BEng (Bachelor of Engineering) Degree Program and will commence in September 2013. Electrical Engineering deals with the electrical, electronic, and wireless infrastructure that enables our modern life. There isn’t a field or industry that doesn’t depend on the fundamentals of Electrical Engineering – be it pharmaceutical, medical, manufacturing, media or even entertainment. Subdisciplines of Electrical Engineering include electronics and nanoelectronics, control systems, telecommunications, robotics systems and biomedical instrument design. Common across all engineering programs, the first year in Electrical Engineering provides students with a strong foundation in programming, applied mathematics, and physical sciences. During the second and third years, the curriculum covers advanced topics in electronics and electrical circuits, semiconductor devices and circuits, electromagnetic fields and waves, power systems and energy conversion. The final year provides students the flexibility of specializing in one of the four electrical engineering fields: Electronics, Power, Communications and Signal Processing, and Medical and Assistive Devices.
