Electrical Engineering

From million-dollar skyscrapers to nano-sized pieces of technology, Electrical Engineers are responsible for the inventions in your hands.


Did you know that Electrical Engineering is one of the key driving forces behind the technology we use today? Engineers with an Electrical Engineering background have the opportunity to be part of teams that work on the following and more:

• 4G/5G wireless connectivity
• Electric-powered vehicles (eg. Skateboards, Motorbikes, Cars)
• High-definition (HD) cameras in smartphones
• Large scale lighting systems for skyscrapers
• Light and compact-sized batteries with longer performance hours
• Ultra-fast processors on our smartphones, tablets and computers
• Wearable technology (eg. iWatch, fitness trackers)
• Video chat capabilities on your smartphone

Electrical engineers are not restricted to a single job scope. Instead, they can be employed any of in the following fields and more: Automation, Automotive Technology, Communications Engineering, Electronics, Electro-Mobility, Human-Machine Interaction, Integrated Circuits and Solid State Devices, Intelligent Energy Networks, Media Technology, Power Systems, Robotics
