Through this major you’ll develop an understanding of mathematical modelling and abstraction, problem-solving and design skills as a basis for understanding electrical phenomena, and the ability to construct simulations and laboratory experiments.

You’ll learn to apply your knowledge of mathematics and electrical phenomena to solve problems in areas such as telecommunications, monitoring and automation, energy distribution, and digital computing.

Your major structure

You’ll complete this major as part of a Bachelor of Science degree. You can study engineering subjects from your first year with us, and you’ll have plenty of flexibility to explore other interests too.

In your first and second years you’ll complete subjects that are prerequisites for your major, including mathematics, physics and foundational engineering subjects.

In your third year, you will complete 50 points (four subjects) of deep and specialised study in electrical systems.

Throughout your degree you will also take science elective subjects and breadth (non-science) subjects, in addition to your major subjects and prerequisites.
