About the course
Electrical and Electronic Engineering combines the fields of mathematics, science and technology to design, implement and manufacture electrical and electronic systems and devices. From the global positioning system that can continuously provide the location of a vehicle to the giant electric power generators, electrical and electronics engineers are responsible for a wide range of technologies. This course provides you with technical expertise in power system design, electronics, control systems, signal processing, and embedded systems. You will become capable to apply your skills and understanding in the design, construction, operation and maintenance of electronics and electrical energy infrastructure, or use the course as a pathway into research or further learning.
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.
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.
- Manage complex Electrical and Electronic Engineering projects that are motivational, entrepreneurial, research and/or industry linked
- Take leadership and mentoring roles during the design and implementation phases of Electrical and Electronic Engineering projects
- Work in local and/or international organisations demonstrating an understanding of global engineering issues
- Apply Electrical and Electronic Engineering technical expertise to industry-related fields
- Work autonomously and in teams within organisations or as a consultant
- Apply ethical standards, principles of design for sustainable development, and environmental consideration to conceptualising and implementing industry-related projects
At the completion of the Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical and Electronic) (Honours) course, graduates should be able to demonstrate the attainment of the following Electrical and Electronic Swinburne Engineering Competencies, required for external professional recognition:

In addition to the above units the successful completion of EAT20008 Professional Experience in Engineering (12 weeks of approved relevant industrial practical experience) before the last semester of study is required for the award of the above degree.
Students have the option to undertake Industry-Based Learning (IBL) which is full-time paid placement in industry for 6 months (EAT20010) or 12 months (EAT20010 and EAT20011) in an area relevant to engineering studies after Semester 5 or Semester 6. An administrative fee may apply for this option. The successful completion of IBL can be used to fulfil the requirements of EAT20008 Professional Experience in Engineering.
Students must also complete EDU10015 Careers in the Curriculum, an innovative unit designed to assist Swinburne students to enhance their employability and career prospects, before commencing EAT20008 or IBL.
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.
Graduates are eligible to register as Graduate Engineers with Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM) and to apply for graduate membership with Engineers Australia (EA).
