Electrical, telecommunications and computer engineers work to design and oversee projects that deliver power, network and broadcast services to millions of people. Drawing on skills from a variety of disciplines, you will learn the skills to implement solutions ranging from microelectronics to industrial power infrastructure; from radio networks to national fibre-optics pipelines.

Electrical engineering

Electrical engineers are in high demand across a wide range of sectors. Study areas include integrated sensors and control systems; design and development of components in engineering systems; and power generation, transmission and distribution.

Computer engineering

From basic circuit design to the development of supercomputers. Computer engineers focus not only on how computer systems work, but also how they integrate into the larger picture.

Telecommunications engineering

Dealing with large-scale data networks, telecommunications engineers are responsible for designing and overseeing the installation of telecommunications infrastructure, equipment and facilities.
