Bachelor of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (Honours)

University of Newcastle

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00109J

Electrical and electronic engineering involves fields such as electronics, computer systems, telecommunications, bioengineering, control, robotics and electrical power engineering. Electrical and electronic engineers design and build systems and machines that generate, transmit, measure, control and use electrical energy essential to modern life. UON train engineers capable of solving the greatest global challenges. As an electrical and electronic engineer students can help develop precision agriculture technology to increase food production efficiency, refine aircraft electrical systems and even build smart grid systems to help manage alternative energy resources. Or, like researchers, could develop medical technology such as the artificial pancreas.

Structure

  • The Bachelor of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (Honours) is a 4 year program comprising 320 units, of which 250 units are core courses, 30 units are directed courses and 40 units are elective pathway courses. An elective pathway gives students the opportunity to broaden their skills and knowledge in their own or another engineering discipline
  • or specialise in areas such as business, maths or science
  • or undertake study overseas. Students will have the opportunity to undertake an industry related project in their final year and must also complete 12 weeks of industrial experience throughout the program. A graded Honours classification is awarded on the basis of superior performance attained throughout the program.

Subjects

  • Electrical and electronic engineering

Standard entry requirements

Year 12 or equivalent. Alternative entry pathways may include approved TAFE studies, preparatory programs such as Newstep, Open Foundation or Tertiary Preparation Certificate. Assumed knowledge: HSC Mathematics (Band 5 or above) or equivalent. One science-related subject would also be an advantage (Physics or Chemistry preferred). Applicants who have achieved less than Mathematics Band 5 may be admitted to the program but may need to complete additional study to successfully complete the requirements of the program. Students who have completed HSC Mathematics General 2 may be admitted to the program but can expect to undertake additional studies to successfully complete the requirements of the program.

Recognition

This degree program is accredited by Engineers Australia and other affiliated international organisations.

Study pathways

Credit transfer agreements with TAFE NSW and other education providers are under continuous negotiation.
