Bachelor of Engineering in Electronic and Electrical Engineering (BE EEE)
 

The range of electrical/electronic technology areas is comprehensive, including Optoelectronics, Integrated Electronics, Telecommunications, Signal Processing, Measurement and Control and Electrical Energy Systems. Students can specialise in any of these areas or acquire a broader education across the spectrum.
Career Opportunities
The dramatic expansion of information technology (IT), the demand for cheap, nonintrusive energy and the inclusion of programmable electronic systems in more and more products have combined to make Electronic and Electrical Engineering graduates highly valued. The range of employment opportunities is very wide and career prospects are excellent.
Design, Development and Research Engineers spend the early part of their careers solving immediate technical problems and designing equipment and systems to meet definite specifications. Later, they influence what products are developed and, by national and international collaboration, the technical standards used by a particular industrial sector such as power supply or telecommunications.

Mechanical Engineering designers are at the forefront of a company's efforts to satisfy (and hopefully delight) its customers. Their job is to conceive and develop enhanced products to meet the demands of future customers. Without highly innovative engineering designers, a company would soon find its products going out of fashion and its sales drying up. This is particularly true in today's global market place in which product cycle times are continually reducing.

The modern mechanical engineer is principally a numerate problem solver and manager accessing the great database of written engineering knowledge and supported by powerful computing hardware and software. Our course aims to provide instruction and directed study with engineering theory being applied wherever possible to real products. Determination of product design by calculation and analysis together with studies of how things are manufactured lead to a balanced programme of studies suited to a career in today's manufacturing industry or in the services infrastructure. Mechanical engineers are employed in every industry and in a wide range of posts covering design, technical research, administrative and management functions. There is growing demand for high calibre, intelligent and numerate mechanical engineers in industry, commerce and the government sectors across the spectrum of activity from technological specialist to senior management.
