The University of Adelaide

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00123M

Electrical and electronic engineering affects every aspect of modern life; and studying the discipline at the University of Adelaide - ranked 44 in the world for Electrical and Electronic Engineering - equips students for a range of global career options at the forefront of technological change. The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Electrical and Electronic) is practical from the outset. Students learn among state-of-the-art facilities, including 3D prototyping, autonomous vehicles and electric machines labs. They're guided by internationally renowned academics, all of whom undertake practical work and research in the field. And they collaborate with industry partners on exciting and innovative projects. Students can also undertake an internship to apply their skills and work directly with potential employers.


  • The first 2 years are common across the majors and establish a deeper understanding of mathematics, physics and computer programming. They cover the basic principles of themes that will be developed throughout the program
  • digital and embedded systems, electronic circuits and signals, electrical systems, and professional practice and systems engineering. The common foundation means all 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. At the end of the 2nd year, students can select a major. The final year includes a capstone research project, relevant to the student's major, which further develops research, technical and professional skills. Students are required to complete 6 weeks of approved practical experience.
