Electrical Engineering is a well-established discipline that involves communications and control technology, the development and exploitation of electric power systems, the design and implementation of complex signal processing devices on computer platforms, robotics design, the application of modern instrumentation, and high-power electronics.
Offered by our Department of Electrical, Computer, and Software Engineering, this discipline is vital in ensuring the reliability and sustainability of upcoming generations of electricity transmission, industrial automation, communication infrastructure and electric vehicles.
Many students pursue this specialisation for its adaptability – the fundamental theories it provides lead to broad applications. Our faculty is also proud to be home to research leaders in many areas of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, including green and renewable energy, and wireless power transfer, which may someday lead to our ability to charge vehicles on-the-go in some cities.
Highly ranked around the world, the Electrical and Electronic Engineering department is part of engineering, computer and mathematical sciences at AUT.
Electrical and electronic engineering prepares students to solve complex engineering problems over a broad range of disciplines.
