School of Electrical Engineering and Telecommunications

Electrical Engineering is about finding better ways to work with electricity

Do an electrical engineering degree and learn how to design and create systems and machines to generate, transmit, measure, control and use electricity. Electrical engineers work in diverse areas that range from data and communication systems to robotics and renewable energy systems to biomedical instruments.

At the UNSW School of Electrical Engineering and Telecomunications, our special focus is in the areas of telecommunications, energy systems, electronics and control systems.
