There is hardly any aspect of modern civilisation that is not dependent upon electrical energy. Electrical Engineers consider generation, transmission and generation of electricity, as well as the harnessing of sources of renewable and sustainable energy. Electronic Engineers undertake the design and application of modern digital, electronic and communication systems.
In this specialisation Electrical and Electronic Engineering is considered together as the combination reflects the convergence of these fields as society seeks more efficient, safe, reliable, and environmentally friendly solutions to engineering problems.
This specialisation in Electrical and Electronic Engineering will provide students, from other discipline areas, content knowledge in areas specific to Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
Our world is characterised by the ever-increasing number of intelligent devices that have embedded computers. The electronics and communication fields represent two of the fastest growing technology areas in the world. With the rapid progress of information technology, the role of communications is becoming even more crucial for increasing industry efficiency and competition. Electrical Power Engineers consider generation, transmission and generation of electricity, as well as the harnessing of sources of renewable and sustainable energy. Electronic Engineers undertake the design and application of modern digital, electronic and communication systems.
Graduates will qualify for entry to the Master of Professional Engineering (Electrical Engineering – Embedded Systems Engineering), Master of Professional Engineering (Electrical Engineering – Emerging Power Systems Engineering), Master of Professional Engineering (Electrical Engineering – Telecommunications and Networking Engineering).
At Curtin, we understand that everyone’s study journey has been different.
You may have already studied some of the units (subjects) listed in your Curtin course, or you may have work experience that matches the degree requirements.
If this applies to you, you can apply for credit for recognised learning (CRL), which means your previous study is recognised and matched against a similar unit in your intended Curtin course.
A successful CRL application exempts you from having to complete certain units within your course and means you could finish your degree in a shorter amount of time.
CRL is also known as recognition of prior learning, advanced standing and credit transfer.
Use the CRL search to find out how much CRL you qualify for, or contact us at:
