Collaborative research in Electrical and Electronic Engineering holds the key to solving a range of significant problems by tackling issues such as developing bionic implants, energy efficient telecommunications, sensor networks for irrigation and water resource management, future grid, electronics and photonics, neuroengineering, and ultra-broadband wireless and optical communications. Electrical engineers play a key role in the design, implementation and management of systems that exploit electrical phenomena to solve practical problems. These include systems for automation, surveillance, energy conversion, power distribution, telecommunications and information processing, on both very large and very small scales. You will develop technical skills through fundamental theory and practical laboratory work, learning from leading experts in the field, who work in partnership with organisations such as IBM and Alcatel-Lucent’s Bell Labs. You will have the opportunity to take part in research under the guidance of leaders in electronic and photonic system design, telecommunications, power networks, signal processing and automatic control systems. The Master of Engineering (Electrical) will provide you with a formal qualification in electrical engineering at the Masters level.

Duration indicated is maximum course duration. May be completed in less EFTSL depending upon academic background and/or relevant work experience.

Commonwealth Supported Places (CSPs)

A limited number of Commonwealth Supported Places will be awarded on the basis of academic merit. A Commonwealth Supported Place is subsidised by the Australian Government. Students pay a contribution amount that is determined by the Australian Government, based on the subjects undertaken. Find out more about CSP student contribution amounts.

Australian Fee Places (AF)

If you are not eligible for a Commonwealth Supported Place, you will automatically be considered for an Australian Fee place if you are eligible for a place in the course. Students enrolled in an AF place are required to pay the full cost of their tuition fees to the University. Australian Fee places are not subsidised by the Australian Government, however you may be eligible for FEE-HELP to assist with payment of tuition fees. If this course is relevant to your current employment, you may be able to deduct course costs from taxable income: see the ATO websitefor further information.

How course fees are calculated

Your course fee per year is calculated on the basis of one year full-time study (1 EFTSL). Actual fees vary depending on the subjects you are taking. The University reviews fees annually. The indicative total course fee is based on typical subject enrolments, and includes an indexation of 5% per annum. More information about tuition fees.

The duration indicated is maximum course duration and does not take into account any advanced standing for prior studies. The course may be shorter depending on your academic background and/or relevant work experience where applicable.


Credit/Advanced standing

If you have completed post-secondary study, you may be eligible for credit/advanced standing towards your studies at the University. Find out more
