As the electronics industry grows in Australia and internationally, there will be a demand for high level graduates with up-to-date technical skills, combined with personal and business skills. Some of our recent graduates have gone onto work for Telstra, Optus, TPG, iiNET, Huawei, DJI, Hikvision, State Grid, Dahua Technology, (China) and TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, Limited).
In the private sector, you may work in the design, manufacture and supply of electronic products; in energy, systems and services as technical experts; and as business managers and executive officers. You may also choose to establish their own business operating in the local and international electronic market.
The development of the Internet of Things will see an explosion in the range of small electronic devices required to convert our cities to smart cities. Electronic engineers will play a key role in these exciting new developments.
In the public sector, electronic engineers work on essential services such as telecommunications, transportation, security, defense, health, emergency services and the environment.
