Program Details

The field of engineering concerned with the study and application of electricity and electromagnetism is electrical engineering. Essential to our modern infrastructure and conveniences, electrical engineers employ their skills across a large number of specializations, including the design of household appliances, lighting, building wiring, telecommunication systems, robots, power generation, transmission, distribution, and utilization.

With this qualification, you will have acquired the essential knowledge which underpins both this and other fields of engineering. More importantly, you will have become an electrical engineering technologist.

The degree consists of a combination of core units, sub-discipline specific ‘stream’ units, industrial work experience, and a final year project. The program duration is three years full-time. We deliver units over two semesters per year, and you will take 4.5 units per semester. There will be a short mid-semester break and extended breaks between semesters.

Work-Integrated Learning

EIT’s Bachelor of Science programs require students to undertake 240 hours of paid or unpaid professional work-integrated learning.  This can incorporate paid or unpaid internships, site visits, contributing to industry projects, and networking activities.

In undertaking an internship, students will interact with employees and become exposed to organizational policy and culture. You will familiarize yourself with organizational communication procedures, a variety of engineering disciplines, and obtain insight and practical aptitude in projects from the planning phase to completion.

If you already have some work experience in the relevant engineering field, you may apply to have credit granted by completing the associated recognition of prior learning form.

Entry is available to applicants who hold one of the following:
1. Year 12: Australian Senior Certificate of Education (or equivalent), completed within the past 3 years, with a minimum score of 60% in Maths;

  • Applicants who have completed Yr 12 (or equivalent) more than 3 years ago will also need to demonstrate relevant work experience in the field of study applied for.

2. A relevant (to the sub-discipline) Engineering AQF Diploma or higher or a relevant (to the sub-discipline) overseas qualification equivalent to an Engineering AQF Diploma or higher which was completed within the last 10 years with successful completion of all Maths units/modules + recent industry work experience in a relevant field.

English Language Proficiency Requirements:

Entry to this course requires demonstration of English language proficiency at the level of an IELTS overall score of at least 6.0 (with no individual band score less than 5.5)

The methods of satisfying this English language proficiency requirements are generally through (but not limited to):

  • An Australian Senior Certificate of Education or equivalent.
  • A specified level of achievement in a recognised English language test, such as IELTS (or equivalent).
  • Satisfactory completion of another tertiary course offered in English.
  • Work history in an organisation where English is the language of communication.

NOTE: All CRICOS applicants from non-English speaking countries (as determined by the Australian Department of Home Affairs) are required to provide results from a recognised language test such as IELTS or equivalent.

NOTE: All applications will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
