Overview

Electrical and Electronic Engineers harness one of the core forces of the universe to enable a sustainable future for our world and to effectively combat climate change. They create systems to provide efficient and clean energy solutions for homes and industry, design the hardware that transfers information between computers, and develop the smart, internet-enabled, miniaturised devices we increasingly see around us.

Digital television, unmanned aerial vehicles, robotics, medical imaging, and space exploration have all been possible in large part because of electrical and electronic engineering innovation.

Minor in Power Engineering

Efficient and sustainable power generation and transmission is highly important in our modern world. Studying the Power Engineering minor will allow you to investigate electric power generation, distribution, and usage. Systems such as generators, transformers, and motors are widely used across different industries, and therefore need graduates with the expertise to create and improve these.

You can find employment power generation companies, consultancies, transmission companies, contractors, energy retailers, equipment suppliers, and distribution companies. You may also find the knowledge gained through this minor useful in transport industries that deal with the design of electrical railways, aircraft, and electric motors.
