Overview:

Electrical engineers with business skills play a key role in the design, implementation and management of systems that exploit electrical phenomena. These include systems for automation, surveillance, energy conversion, power distribution, telecommunications and information processing, on both very large and very small scales. Graduates are sought with strong analytical and engineering management skills who will be able to be employed in a variety of industries in roles ranging from research-and-development to project management and finance.

Learning Outcomes:

To produce graduates equipped with a blend of fundamental electrical engineering and business skills and the ability to apply these to complex, open-ended engineering tasks and problems. Within this specialisation, students acquire skills in the areas of electronics, control, signal processing, communications and engineering business. Students may choose to undertake advanced study in one or more of these areas.

Structure & Available Subjects:

The Master of Engineering (Electrical with Business) consists of 300 points of study – 262.5 points core plus 37.5 points Electrical Engineering Elective subjects as listed below.

Advanced standing will be awarded for equivalent subjects taken in prior study to applicants on the following basis:
