This major is offered in conjunction with the Graduate Diploma in Engineering Science.
This major provides study in both the theoretical and the practical aspects of electrical and electronic engineering that builds on a student's previous knowledge and experience. It also provides the student with an ability to critically analyse and evaluate information and solve problems and creates a basis for further study in electrical and electronic engineering.
On completion students will be able to:
- evaluate problems and use professional skills and knowledge in the systematic development of electrical and electronic systems;
- describe a variety of electrical and electronic engineering techniques and understand the processes through which this knowledge has been developed;
- understand the engineering fundamentals needed to generate a solution appropriate to the social, political, international, economic and environmental contexts in which they are applied.
