Course Highlights

Electrical and electronic engineers are responsible for the great enabling technologies of our time. They design anything that uses electricity, often working on the cutting edge of technology, using mathematics, science, software, and management skills to solve problems and put the 'smarts' into complex systems.

Career Opportunities

Career options for social sciences graduates: jobs you can do with a degree in economics, geography, history, law, politics, psychology, sociology etc. If you are graduating with a degree in social sciences, you may find there is a limited number of careers in which your subject is an essential requirement. However, there will be many areas in which your qualification can be an advantage.Careers for social science graduates Some of the areas employing social science graduates are: accountancy advertising/marketing banking and insurance business management economics local government management consultancy market research media politics psychology retail and sales teaching and lecturing tourism town planning.

Course Overview

Electrical and electronic engineers are responsible for the great enabling technologies of our time. They design anything that uses electricity, often working on the cutting edge of technology, using mathematics, science, software, and management skills to solve problems and put the 'smarts' into complex systems. Electrical and electronic engineers provide the power society needs; they design electronic and computing technologies that enable modern lives; they develop the communications networks and protocols that connect people; and they work to sustain human developments through medical technology and new energy technologies. I want to find another Bachelor Course Industries grow and change over time. Today Australia needs electrical and electronic engineers in the mining and power distribution industries; tomorrow they may be needed to support financial computing services, or to develop the technology for advanced manufacturing. Whatever the future holds, electrical and electronic engineers will be at the forefront of technological change. This degree is highly regarded and graduates secure important roles in leading technology companies worldwide. Graduates receive a solid technical foundation so that they have opportunities to work in many specialist areas. They are equipped with lifelong learning skills so they are able to change specialisations over the course of their careers. A strong core curriculum of professional practice, systems engineering and engineering management runs through this degree and ensures its graduates are career-ready Career Opportunities For the best part of 70 years, a University of Adelaide bachelor's degree in electrical and electronic engineering has been a passport to high technology careers nationally and internationally. Graduates have broad and adaptable skill sets and work in diverse roles across a wide variety of industries. Employment opportunities are available in many growing fields such as industrial automation, renewable energy development, power systems, biomedical devices and systems development, mining, defence technologies, radar and remote sensing, information security and telecommunications. Graduates have the breadth of knowledge and understanding needed to adapt in this fast-paced discipline. Engineering employers require graduates who are good communicators, who can manage projects and resources, and who can work independently and in teams. Graduates are equipped with these skills. Potential careers Engineer, Avionics Engineer, Computer Systems Engineer, Sustainable Energy Engineer, Computer Hardware Engineer, Electrical / Electronic Engineer, Radio Engineer, Robotics Engineer, Telecommunications Engineer, Instrumentation Engineer, Power Distribution Engineer, Power Generation Engineer


Programme Structure Program Structure The first two years of this degree provide a solid foundation in electronics, physics, mathematics and computer programming. This background means that graduates have the opportunity to work in many specialist areas, and are prepared with lifelong learning skills so that they are able to change specialisations over the course of their careers. Beginning in the second year of the degree, the focus shifts towards learning new and more advanced electrical and electronics technologies. In the final year of the program, students can specialise in a particular area by studying advanced courses and by completing a capstone project that further develops research, technical and professional skills. Students are required to complete 12 weeks of approved practical experience. Assessment Assessment can vary from course to course and can include a combination of class work, tutorials, homework assignments, laboratory work, project work and exams. Courses included Introduction to Programming for Engineers (3 units) Analog Electronics (3 units) Mathematics IA (3 units) Broadening Elective (3 units) Object-Oriented Programming (3 units) Digital Electronics (3 units) Mathematics IB (3 units) Physics 1E: Mechanics & Thermodynamics (3 units)



Academic Entry Requirement

Academic Requirements Domestic applicants Year 12 applicants You must not have completed more than 2 years full time equivalent university study (48 units). You compete for a place with your Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR). Prerequisites SACE Stage 2: Mathematical Studies, Specialist Mathematics, Physics. IB: Mathematics (HL grade 3), Physics (SL grade 4/HL grade 3). Alternative entry pathways Higher Education applicants You must have completed at least half a year full time equivalent higher education study. A Grade Point Average (GPA) is calculated for each separate program you have undertaken (apart from some double degree programs where the GPA is combined). You compete on the basis of your best GPA. VET applicants Special Entry applicants You must be 18 years or over before 1 February 2015. If you have studied at higher education level in the last two years (for 2015 entry this means you were enrolled in either 2013 or 2014), you must not have accumulated more than a TOTAL of 2 years full-time (or part-time equivalent) higher education study (ie. including any study prior to 2013). If you meet this criteria, you will be ranked according to your result in the Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT). Your STAT result is not weighted between verbal and quantitative components. Indigenous applicants may be eligible for entry through the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Access Scheme. See Wirltu Yarlu for further information. Other Entry Pathways International applicants Mathematics and Physics Equivalent Scores International ATAR 80 IB 27 IELTS Overall 6 Reading 5,5 Listening 5,5 Speaking 6 Writing 6 A-Level 9 UEC [Malaysia] 15 SAT [US] 1770 OSSD OAC [Canadian Pre-U] 75 Eynesbury Foundation Program 380 Bradford Foundation Program 77 To be eligible for some programs, particularly in the areas of Science, Engineering, Maths and Computer Science, applicants are required to have passed specific subjects called 'program prerequisites'. For SACE applicants, program prerequisites are the nominated subject(s) completed at SACE Stage 2 level, with a minimum subject achievement score of 10 out of 20. Other applicants, i.e. higher education, TAFE and special entry, are required to have successfully completed either these subjects or their equivalent. Program prerequisites apply to all applicants to the relevant programs.A number of programs list SACE subjects as 'assumed knowledge' in the Undergraduate Prospectus and the SATAC Uni Guide. These subjects indicate the academic background that it is assumed students entering the program will have. Studying these subjects is highly desirable but is not a requirement of admission.
