As you undertake this specialisation in the second year of your BE(Hons), you’ll be exposed to essential skills in electrical materials and electronic devices, circuit theory, software design and mathematical modelling tools. You will also be introduced to engineering electromagnetics and computer systems, and learn to examine how engineers communicate technical and complex material. Other major topics, some of which are delivered in extensive elective courses, include:

  • Communications and information systems, including between humans and automated devices
  • Power electronics and the development of devices for a wide range of applications in power systems and automation, including a focus on the challenges of inductive power transfer
  • Power systems and control, which covers electricity and electronic circuitry
  • Robotics and signal processing, with exposure to complex systems and processing algorithms such as vision and navigation

Where could this programme take you?

Your specialisation, personal interests and chosen electives can impact what you pursue. With quantitative, problem-solving, communication and technical skills, you’ll easily adapt to the technologically-driven nature of many industries. All our specialisations are accredited by Engineering New Zealand, a signatory to the Washington Accord, making our BE(Hons) a recognised engineering qualification in many countries.
