If students have an interest in engineering, mathematics, computing, physics, design, instrumentation, communications, and materials and testing, this degree is suitable. Engineering technologists bridge the gap between technicians and engineers and work with other professionals in solving engineering problems. The electronics and computer engineering industry is a quickly evolving area. It plays a significant role in a wide range of industries through the design and construction of electronic applications and systems enhancing technologies such as: mobile phones, satellites, communication systems, satellite navigation, control systems for transport, broadband services, energy production, high-definition television and satellite phones. This degree will prepare students for work as an engineering technologist, with the skills and knowledge needed to advise in planning, designing, operating and maintaining electronic engineering works. Students will gain an understanding of project management principles, microprocessor techniques, electric circuits, engineering practice and sustainability, control systems and more. Students will develop the skills in hardware and software design and implementation which they will need to work in cutting-edge, high-technology fields, including communications, microelectronics, computer systems, biomedical engineering and control systems (robotics). As a student, you will benefit from Griffith's partnerships with government and industry. In their final year of study, students will be able to take part in an industry placement, giving them the chance to put what they learn in the classroom into practice, gain the skills and experience employers want and make valuable contacts.
