Course Description

Gain the fundamental knowledge and principles necessary for a career in electrical and electronic engineering.

Electrical engineers devise solutions to generate and use electrical power efficiently and cleanly, while electronic engineers design, implement and maintain electronic devices and systems, including those found in communications, defence, hospitals, and more.

In this program your study will include the generation, distribution and application of electrical energy, and the design and control of the electrical and electronic devices and systems required to power and improve life for people and communities.

You'll have a wide range of options to specialise in various sub-areas of electrical and electronic engineering, including:

  • generation, distribution and conversion of electrical energy
  • control systems
  • analogue and digital electronics
  • power electronics and drives
  • communications and network engineering
  • computer engineering and embedded systems
  • audio signal processing
  • image processing
  • biomedical signal processing
  • sensors and measurement technologies
  • instrumentation
  • biomedical electronics and engineering

You'll have the opportunity to design creative solutions through inspiring and sustainable design-and-build projects, as well as taking part in the Engineers Without Borders Challenge - a humanitarian-focused course offered in all RMIT engineering degrees.
