Electrical and Electronic Engineering combines the fields of mathematics, science and technology to design, implement, analyze 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 span a wide range of technologies. The program develops students’ abilities to analyse, identify, formulate and generate specific solutions in the broad field of electrical and electronic engineering. You will become capable to apply your skills and understanding in the design, construction, operation and maintenance of electronic systems and electrical energy infrastructure, or use the course as a pathway into research or further learning.
Graduates are eligible for registration under Electrical branch with Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM).
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 semester, and variation to study load will result in an adjustment to tuition fees. All fees are subject to annual review and may be adjusted.
- Course objectives, course learning outcomes, course structure, units of study, career opportunities and professional recognition.
The following course educational objectives define the achievements of Swinburne graduates in their professional engineering career a few years after graduation.
Students who successfully complete this course will be able to:
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:
For the completion of Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical and Electronic) (Honours), students are required to complete a total of 32 units (400 credit points) consisting of:
Electrical and Electronic Major
* Outcome unit – completion demonstrates the attainment of course learning outcomes
† Honours merit unit – results are used in the honours merit calculation
In the final year, students will be required to undertake two Final Year Research Project units (capstone experiences) which helps meet professional accreditation requirements.
Students are required to complete EAT20008 Professional Experience in Engineering (non-credit point unit), a 12-week approved relevant industrial practical experience before the commencement of the last semester of study.
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).
At Swinburne scholarships are about providing opportunity, promoting equity and recognising excellence and achievement. Scholarships are available for both commencing and current students.
