*The indicative course fees shown here applies to students studying on-campus in Malaysia for the relevant year only. They are based on a standard study load per year. However, please note that fees are assessed according to a student's study load in each term, and variation to study load will result in an adjustment to tuition fees. All fees are subject to annual review and may be adjusted. 

The Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical and Electronic Engineering is a broad-based course and develops in students a mastery of the basic engineering principles underlying electrical and electronic engineering with emphasis on electronic and micro-controllers-based design, operation and control of electrical machines, power system generation and distribution, systems modelling, automation and control. The program develops students’ abilities to analyse, identify, formulate and generate specific solutions in the broad field of electrical and electronic engineering.

Swinburne also offers a double degree in Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical and Electronic Engineering)/Bachelor of Commerce.

The following six objectives are the typical skills and abilities that Swinburne graduates will have a few years after graduation as they develop their professional engineer careers.
1) Manage complex Electrical and Electronic Engineering projects that are motivational, entrepreneurial, research and/or industry linked
2) Take leadership and mentoring roles during the design and implementation phases of Electrical and Electronic Engineering projects
3) Work in local and/or international organisations demonstrating an understanding of global engineering issues
4) Apply Electrical and Electronic Engineering technical expertise to industry-related fields
5) Work autonomously and in teams within organisations or as a consultant
6) Apply ethical standards, principles of design for sustainable development, and environmental consideration to conceptualising and
    implementing industry-related projects

Students studying on an international student visa must complete HED400 Professional Experience in Engineering. All other students may complete an Industry-Based Learning placement instead (exemption will be granted for HED400 on completion of IBL).

HED400 Professional Experience in Engineering: Equivalent of 12 full-time weeks of approved relevant engineering practical experience (0 credit points, 0 fees). To be taken at any stage during the degree.

HEW050 Industry-Based Learning (Placement 1), HEW055 Industry-Based Learning (Placement 2): Full-time paid placement in industry for 6 (HEW050) or 12 months (HEW050 & HEW055) in an area relevant to your studies (0 academic credit points, unit fees apply). Students should attend an information session one semester prior to the scheduled IBL entry point.

Swinburne offers International Exchange Programs as well as other Education Abroad Programs to help internationalise your degree. International Exchange is an academic program allowing you to study at a Swinburne Partner Institution for one or two semesters during your degree. Swinburne's Partner Institutions offer many relevant subjects as well as a secure base to explore a different culture. Your studies whilst on exchange can be credited towards your Swinburne degree, provided they are relevant and approved by Swinburne. For further information visit the Swinburne Abroad website.


Graduates can take up careers in a wide spectrum of industries, including automotive, robotics, aerospace, power industry, electronic appliances, manufacturing, and industrial research. Contributions can be made to these industries in a variety of roles including design engineer, project planner, product designer and project manager.

This program has also been professionally accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC) Malaysia and Engineers Australia.
Graduates are eligible to apply for membership of Engineers Australia as well as Graduate Membership of Board of Engineers Malaysia.
