Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Overview

Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) encompasses exciting and diverse fields – from heavy electrical (eg, power generation), to design and application of sophisticated medical electronics, computer modelling, telecommunications (local, national and international networks), electromagnetics, information technology and expert systems.

Areas of study

The Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering has interests in computer systems engineering and software engineering. Virtually no other engineering discipline changes as rapidly, or provides a greater variety of career paths. EEE includes the worldwide telecommunications network, incorporating both satellite links and fibre-optic undersea cables, connecting people around the world.

Career opportunities

The range of employment activities has widened to include the processing industries like timber, pulp and paper, steel, aluminium, meat and dairy. Opportunities have also arisen in communications, wireless computing technologies, electronics, instrumentation, power-electronics and motor control, and power systems.
On the back of a worldwide shortage, New Zealand consultants in this field successfully undertake a broad variety of work both locally and overseas. Computer suppliers and users also have need of electrical and computer systems engineering skills, while research organisations employ electrical engineers in applied research.
