Course overview

The Bachelor of Engineering (Electronics) provides students with the skills and knowledge to plan, design and build the electronic circuitry that is integral to so many high technology applications.

You will study:

  • fundamental science and engineering topics including digital and analog electronics, computer programming, mathematics and physics
  • topics dealing with a variety of areas including microprocessors, signal processing, and motor and actuators.

The final year provides scope to take electives in computer science and engineering. It also includes a major research project.

We have developed close relationships with a number of private sector and government organisations and all students undertake Flinders' nationally recognised 20 week industry placement.

What is Electronic Engineering?

Electronics is the enabling technology for today's society. It is embedded in most facets of life ranging from consumer goods to the sophisticated instrumentation used in electronic circuits, electronic devices, telecommunications and computer systems.

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

High demand exists for qualified professional electronic engineers in areas such as defence, medicine, telecommunications, building, manufacturing and mining.
