Combines the fundamental engineering disciplines of electronic systems and communication systems to provide graduates with skills in all aspects of analogue and digital circuit design, and communciations systems development. Concentrates on the engineering principles required to analyse and solve problems related to the design and implementation of electronic and communication systems. Graduates of the course will be conversant in the fundamental physical sciences, electronic circuits and systems, digital signal processing, power electronics, fibre optic and microwave communications, computer networking, and cellular and wireless networks. The course focuses on the development of knowledge and skills relevant to professional engineering practice and, along with a sound theoretical base, includes strong elements of practical problem solving, team work and project development. As a result, as well as having multiple technical and transferable skill competencies, graduates will have strong analytical skills and the ability to lead complex projects. Employment opportunities exist in most sectors of industry including communication and telecommunication, product development, fabrication, public utilities, mining and resource, defence, aerospace, and consulting.
