What is Electrical Engineering?

Electrical engineering is concerned with large scale electrical systems such as power supply, renewable power generation and motors. This differs from electronic engineering which is primarily concerned with small scale, often lower voltage electronic systems such as computer systems, communication networks and integrated circuits.

Why study Electrical Engineering at Flinders?

The Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical) (Honours) at Flinders:

  • looks to the future with an emphasis on renewable energy systems and electrical drive systems
  • lets you participate in Flinders University's nationally recognised 20-week industry placement program
  • produces graduates who are in high demand in industry in South Australia and Australia.

Professional recognition/membership

This program is provisionally accredited by Engineers Australia at the level of professional engineer. Full accreditation is normally granted when the first cohort of students graduate from the program.

Professional engineering courses accredited by Engineers Australia are recognised internationally under the Washington Accord. Once fully accredited graduates will meet the academic requirements for attaining chartered professional engineering status.

Combined degree options

You can combine this degree with any other bachelor degree within the College of Science and Engineering, subject to meeting entry requirements.
