UC has Electrical and Electronic Engineering postgraduate students spanning several research disciplines, including power systems, materials and nanotechnology, communications, acoustics, computational imaging, neural engineering, power electronics, and radio frequency engineering. 

Our research and teaching activities are supported by excellent laboratory facilities and technical staff. Several of the facilities are not available at any other university in Aotearoa New Zealand. These include some of the nanofabrication facilities and analysis instruments which are part of the MacDiarmid Institute, the High Voltage Laboratory, and the Electrical Machines Laboratory. We have strong ties with the EPECentre for power systems engineering.
