Electrical and electronics underpin everyday technologies, from large devices such as electric vehicles to small devices such as mobile phones and computers. In general, electrical and electronic engineering encompasses electrical power and control, electronic, telecommunication and computer systems.

There is hardly any aspect of our modern civilization that is not dependent upon electrical energy. We use this for heating, cooling, transportation, lighting, manufacturing and production to name a few  areas of application. Electrical and electronic engineering involves the applications of electrical energy, together with its generation, transmission and distribution, as well as the harnessing of sources of renewable and sustainable energy.

Electronic field represents one of the fastest growing technology areas internationally and is the underlying area to many industries such as robotics and telecommunications. With the rapid progress of the information society such as the revolutionary Internet of Things (IoT), the role of electrical and electronic engineers is becoming more crucial to make tomorrow better.

First Year

The major has a common first year with all other engineering disciplines which builds a range of basic science skills and knowledge, with particular emphasis on physics, chemistry and mathematics.

Why Electrical and Electronic Engineering?

  • The course provides students with fundamental and state-of-art knowledge, relevant to industry with theory, computer simulation and practical components
  • Excellent teaching staff, many with extensive industrial experience and strong collaboration with industry players present opportunities for exposure to industry practice
