Electrical and computer systems engineering

Your qualification will be a Bachelor of Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering (Honours)

Electrical and computer systems engineering is a field that evolves rapidly, with new technologies and techniques being patented every day. It spans all scales of electrical and electronic engineering, from the fundamentals of circuits, electronic signals and signal processing, through to digital electronics and chip-based systems, to the design of large-scale power and telecommunication systems.

Electrical and computer systems engineering encompasses biomedical, computer systems, electronics, electrical power engineering, robotics and telecommunications.

You might design products such as smart phones, virtual reality systems or video games, or maybe robotic medical devices to assist in surgery and rehabilitation.

Monash will give you the hands-on training and theoretical insight you need for an exciting future as an electrical and computer systems engineer.

All our students experience industry-standard reprogrammable chips in the laboratories from first year onwards. By third year you will be building miniaturised machines with very powerful processing on board. In fourth year you may apply this knowledge to a 'product' of your own.

Electrical and computer systems engineers work locally and internationally in a wide range of sectors including the following:

  • power generation
  • industrial and power electronics
  • automation systems
  • computer programming
  • robotics
  • health care
  • water and energy

Many Monash graduates work in large public and private telecommunications, manufacturing and electrical power companies, while others work for defence and intelligence organisations.

You could also work in banking and finance, or with any organisation that creates, stores, encodes and transmits big data or manages complex systems.
