BE (Elec) Degree

Bachelor of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (BE) Honours Degree

The CK600 degree course is your pathway to an internationally accredited four-year honours professional engineering programme in Electrical and Electronic Engineering which incorporates a five-month paid work placement element between third year and final year. At final year level, a wide range of subject options enable students to tailor their degree specialisation to suit their particular interests and career ambitions. Most courses are accompanied by practical laboratory classes or project work. In this way, students gain experience in the use and application of modern test equipment and computer-aided design techniques.
