The Electrical Engineering degree is built on a foundation of mathematics, computer science and physical science.

A degree in electrical engineering will provide you with high-level project management skills, as well as engineering expertise to equip you with the skills you need to practice as an electrical engineer. If you select the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) Electrical at UNSW Canberra, you will study subjects such as computational problem solving, programming, mathematics, physics, data structures, signals and systems, communications, surveillance, and radar and computer engineering. You will spend at least 60 days gaining practical engineering experience in the workplace during your degree, and you will undertake your own capstone research project in your final year. Your degree will also be accredited with Engineers Australia, which means that you will be qualified to begin working as an engineer as soon as you graduate.

You may choose to work with a telecommunications or electricity company, with large industrial groups in fields ranging from steelmaking to mobile phone manufacturing or with specialist firms making hi-tech biomedical or internet products and in service industries such as electricity and water, large private industrial groups, new technology firms, telecommunications and wireless electronics, internet services, biomedical instrumentation, manufacturing, and transport.
