Electrical and electronic engineering is a professional career that utilises mathematics, science, technology and problem solving skills to design, construct and maintain the products and services that underpin modern society. Electrical and electronic engineering is the major area of expertise behind control and automation, telecommunications and networking, signal processing, analogue, digital and computer electronics and power generation, distribution and utilization. It is also vital in new and emerging fields such as nano-technology, robotics, renewable energy and the Internet of Things.
Computer systems engineers are experts in software development, electronic hardware design and networking. They design, build and test computer hardware and interface hardware to other equipment and networks. They also write the software with which the end user interacts. The Computer Systems part of this program covers the theoretical and practical knowledge required to create a computing system from scratch. It enables students to innovate a computer system as part of an existing engineering system such as a controller of industrial plant or equipment. The degree focusses on underlying principles and techniques so that graduates are able to learn and apply new technologies as they emerge in the future.
This double degree program allows the students to gain expertise in Electrical & Electronic Engineering as Computer Systems, with a special emphasis on the elements where these disciplines interact with each other.
