Master of Engineering Science (Electrical and Electronic)

Flinders University

Program Overview

The Master of Engineering Science (Electrical and Electronic) equips you with the skills and knowledge to plan, design and build the electrical and electronic circuitry that is integral to so many high technology applications. You also have the opportunity to focus on niche areas including renewable technologies such as wind farms, and electrical drive systems such as those used on ships and submarines and in emission-free vehicles.

Electrical engineering is concerned with large scale electrical systems such as power supply, renewable power generation and motors while electronic engineering is typically concerned with small scale, often lower voltage electronic systems such as computer systems, communication networks and integrated circuits. This degree adds to your previous study and covers both types of engineering.

Electrical and electronic engineers are involved in developing technology used in areas such as aircraft systems, media and sound broadcasting, power distribution systems, traffic and urban management, medical equipment, robotics, broadband systems, and scientific devices.
