Double Major Overview

Description

Electrical and electronic engineering spans from the nanometres-thick scale of advanced electronic devices to the kilometres-long scale of power transmission, and everything in between. Electrical and Electronic Engineering at UWA is designed to produce graduates who are not only capable of finding successful and rewarding lifelong careers as electrical and electronic engineering in existing industries, but who can also apply their skills and knowledge to new and emerging fields such as sustainable energy solutions, technologies to improve individual and community health, innovations in communications and sensor systems, and the design of electronics that transform lives.

In the Electrical and Electronic Engineering major, you will learn to identify, formulate and solve engineering problems concerned with the generation and transmission of information and electric power; design and test electrical and electronic devices, circuits and systems; and consider the context of the broader system application within which all of this falls, including economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability and sustainability constraints.

Outcomes

Students are able to (1) demonstrate the fundamental principles of electrical and electronic engineering to enter industry with the critical-thinking skills required to solve real-world problems; (2) apply technical, numerical and computing knowledge and tools to the analysis, design, construction, and operation of electrical and electronic components, circuits, and systems; (3) adapt new and existing knowledge and practice to current and emerging areas of electrical and electronic engineering; (4) communicate competently and effectively at a high level through written, oral and visual means

; and (5) contribute effectively as a team member in a multi-disciplinary environment being mindful of ethical, economic, and safety concerns.

Broadening guidelines

All students studying towards a Bachelor's Degree at UWA are required to Broaden their studies by completing a minimum of four units (24 points) of study outside their degree specific major. Broadening is your opportunity to explore other areas of interest, investigate new disciplines and shape your degree in line with your personal aspirations. Students enrolled in the Bachelor of Engineering are encouraged to take units or a minor from outside of engineering, to satisfy broadening. However, you may also select engineering units that are not listed in the unit sequence of your engineering major. Advice can be sought from your Allocated Student Advising Office.
