Electrical Engineering

Stream Overview

With rapid transformation occurring across industries and a greater emphasis on green technologies, electrical engineers are set to play a vital role in building our future society.

Electrical engineers design, develop, install and maintain systems in areas as diverse as computer systems, power systems, electronics and telecommunications. They also deal with computer architecture, digital communications, embedded systems, instrumentation, lasers, microelectronics, microwaves and antennas, optical communications, satellite mobile communications, signal processing and systems design.

As an electrical engineering graduate, you will have the opportunity to positively contribute to many of today's challenges including climate change, environmental preservation, sustainability, renewable energy generation and healthcare.

Electrical engineering programs provide the scientific, mathematical and engineering foundations required to design systems across diverse areas like satellite communications, high-performance computing, telecommunications, signal processing, energy generation and biomedical engineering.
