Electronic Engineering Major - Bachelor of Engineering Technology

Take a look at the appliances and systems that make our daily lives easier – they were created by electronic engineers. Electronic engineers are also involved in robotics research, which relies heavily on using digital systems.

Study the Electronic Engineering major in the Bachelor of Engineering Technology and develop an in-depth understanding of electronic engineering circuits, with a focus on microelectronic systems and their applications in commercial, industrial and domestic systems and appliances. The Electronic Engineering major also covers the design, implementation and maintenance of electronic systems.


This is part of the Bachelor of Engineering Technology.

Most papers last one semester and are worth 15 points. If you're a full-time student, you normally complete 120 points each year (360 points for the entire degree).

You also need to complete a minimum of 600 hours of planned supervised work placement to graduate. This work experience exposes you to real engineering practices and management systems and helps you build engineering networks.
