Deakin's Bachelor of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (Honours) places great emphasis on the practical application of engineering and scientific principles to produce industry-ready engineers, who are immediately employable and capable of adapting to an ever-changing future.
The construction industry is vital to economy and society. Careers are on offer in building and assembling infrastructure, and construction projects in homes and buildings.
Careers in construction include project managers and construction managers, who coordinate and plan the work to be done by construction workers and skilled labourers and oversee the overall operations of the site and project. Professionals in this role should have a bachelors degree or significant work experience in the field. Other hands-on careers include labourers, construction equipment operators, plumbers, electricians and welders who may work directly for construction companies or work under contract for specific job purposes. In addition, there are many other careers associated with the construction industry including estimators, surveyors, contract administrators and inspectors that are charged with ensuring proper building codes and safety regulations.
While advanced degrees can now help individuals gain the skill necessary to work in this field, much of the work involves practical, hands-on experience and technical knowledge of the materials and functioning properties of fixtures and structures. Individuals in this field typically enjoy working outdoors using physical labour and manually working on projects, and should be interested in how things work. There is a great deal of coordinating and planning in the field is imperative. Many professionals and workers in the construction field may work based on specific project contracts for large companies, small projects and individual clients.
Professionals in the field must work with a variety of stakeholders, including the client, government authorities, planners and designers, and building code and regulation inspectors.
Electrical and electronic engineers are responsible for the design, construction, protection and project management of power generation, distribution, transmission, scheduling and usage, automation and control. This program covers the broad areas of electrical and electronic engineering disciplines, including renewable electrical power generation; smart distribution; urban, industrial, rural and regional power usage; and the role of energy production and efficiency in climate change. I want to find another Bachelor Course This course has been designed to attract students who can be trained to fulfil the shortage of electrical and electronic engineers. It also is designed to encourage responsible use of electrical power in a changing climate. You will learn and practice on industry standard tools in world-class facilities. The program also has strong links with the electrical and renewable energy engineering industry, providing students with a true professional engineering practice. You will learn generic skills including entrepreneurship, innovation and leadership, project management, technical report writing and presentation, and comprehension and communication. You will also develop an understanding of the ethical basis of the engineering profession and practice, contemporary technical and professional issues in the practice of engineering, as well as how to address complex problems and produce innovative solutions beneficial to an organisation and society. You will also gain a sound, fundamental understanding of the scientific principles underlying technology; learn the basic principles underlying the management of physical, human and financial resources; acquire the mathematical and computational skills necessary for solving theoretical and practical problems and for meeting future changes in technology; and gain an understanding of the social, cultural, global and environmental responsibilities of the professional engineer. Career opportunities Electrical and electronics engineering graduates can expect to gain employment in power generation and distribution, electronic design, factory control, local government, public works and consulting.
