Program Code


Academic Year


Special Notes

These Program Rules should be read in conjunction with the University's policies (


This program embraces both electrical and electronic engineering and provides graduates with a wide range of fundamental scientific knowledge relevant to electrical and electronic engineering. An emphasis is placed on underlying principles and techniques so that graduates will be able to learn and apply new technologies as they emerge in the future. The first two years of this degree provide a solid foundation in electronics, physics, mathematics and computer programming. This background means that graduates have the opportunity to work in many specialist areas, and are prepared with lifelong learning skills so that they are able to change specialisations over the course of their careers. Beginning in the second year of the degree, the focus shifts towards learning new and more advanced electrical and electronics technologies. In the final year of the program, students can specialize in a particular area by studying advanced courses and by completing a capstone project that further develops research, technical and professional skills.
Students are also required to complete 12 weeks of approved practical experience during their study. Graduates of the program qualify for professional membership of Engineers Australia.
The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Electrical and Electronic) is an AQF Level 8 qualification with a standard full-time duration of 4 years.
