About Masters Of Engineering (electrical And Electronics Engineering) in University of Canterbury
Electrical and Electronic Engineers harness one of the fundamental forces of the universe, electromagnetism, for the benefit of the world.
Electrical and Electronic Engineers create systems to provide efficient and sustainable power for homes and industry, the physical parts that transfer information between computers, and also the smart miniature devices we now have throughout the modern world.
Electrical and Electronic Engineering involves being creative with the generation, storage, and use of electricity; the design and programming of smart systems, such as robots and mobile devices; as well as the design and use of integrated circuits, sensors, and actuators. This discipline also involves the transmission and transformation of information using computers and communication networks, and the design of new electronic and computer products.
Electrical and Electronic Engineers have played a major role in the development of many technological advances, from personal computing and smart phones to autonomous vehicles and renewable electrical power. Digital television, unmanned aerial vehicles, robotics, medical imaging, and space exploration have all been possible in large part because of electrical engineering innovation.
UC Electrical and Electronic Engineering graduates are well prepared to join the technological revolution, with a wide range of career options. Some examples of these are as a consulting engineer; electronic design engineer; biomedical engineer; an entrepreneur; or as a teacher/educator in industry, school, or university.
Now, and in the future, electrical and electronic engineers have the opportunity to develop innovative systems such as:
new ways of generating power from renewable energy sources eg, wind, hydro, and solar
faster, cheaper, and more reliable ways of sending information through communication networks
more precise non-invasive medical devices, instruments, and scanners
new nano-scale devices and materials
more efficient ways of using electric power and intelligent systems, such as autonomous cars or search-and-rescue robots
better ways of gathering information through sensor networks to help businesses make accurate decisions
new ways of controlling the administration of medicines or the motion of rockets.
