Electrical and computer systems engineers develop electronic solutions to underpin a broad range of development supporting every aspect of engineering. In particular, graduates often employ their skills in the biomedical, computer systems, electronics, electrical power engineering, robotics and telecommunications industries. You will acquire skills, knowledge and experience in electrical and electronic engineering including: the fundamentals of circuits; electronic signals and signal processing; digital electronics and systems on a chip; and the design of large-scale power and telecommunications systems.
