Bachelor of Engineering (Electronics and Communications)
Combines the fundamental engineering disciplines of electronic systems and communication systems to provide graduates with skills in all aspects of analog and digital circuit design and communications systems development.
The course concentrates on the engineering principles required to analyse and solve problems related to the design and implementation of electronic and communication systems.
Students will graduate conversant in the fundamental physical sciences, electronic circuits & systems, digital signal processing, power electronics, fibre optic & microwave communications, computer networking and cellular & wireless networks.
There is a focus on the development of knowledge and skills relevant to professional engineering practice, along with a sound theoretical base. The course 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, students will graduate with strong analytical skills and the ability to lead complex projects.
Students are required to complete practicum placement(s) as part of this course.
Additional Course Information
During the course, students will be required to undertake a minimum of 12 weeks practical work experience located in an engineering industry environment. This will normally be undertaken during a vacation period, even though it is listed as a unit for Year 4 (ENS4111).
Engineers Australia has granted accreditation to this course.
