Why study Electronic engineering?
Our coursework program offers graduates the opportunity to advance their skills in specialist areas including microelectronics, biomedical engineering, electronic systems engineering, optical engineering and communications engineering. Graduates from other disciplines may combine their studies with a MBA qualification. Our courses are recognised by Engineers Australia.
Electronic engineering graduates may find work in research and development, communications, microelectronics, hospitals and medical equipment, automotive industry, defence organisations, quality control, and electronic equipment design and manufacturing. Graduates combining their studies with a MBA may use their business and management skills and understanding of electronic engineering in organisations specialising in the design and development of electronic devices. Microelectronic graduates are prepared for careers across the broad field of electronic engineering as well as computer and information technology, consumer electronics, wireless systems, home entertainment, telecommunications, defence, security, and the design and manufacture of automotive, biotechnology and biomedical equipment.
This renewed course enables students to upgrade their skills and specialise in rapidly-developing high-technology areas. Students can choose components that best suit their chosen specialisation: biomedical, microelectronics and electronic communications.
