School of Electrical, Electronic and Computer Engineering


We offer broad-based degree programs complemented by a wide range of research activities and supported by excellent staff and facilities.

Out teaching is conducted by highly qualified academic staff, many of whom are widely recognised international authorities in their respective areas of expertise, and many of whom have received awards for the quality of their teaching.

Our courses are developed in consultation with industry and are designed to continuously meet the changes in our world.

Undergraduate courses

At the undergraduate level we offer a major in Engineering Science. This major provides students with fundamental engineering skills and knowledge through a combination of practical, hands-on courses and industry-based projects.

Engineering Science

UWA has an international reputation for producing engineering graduates who are not only creative, original and enterprising but are empowered to change the world. Completing the Engineering Science major at UWA will see you graduate well-equipped for a career where you will use science, mathematics and creativity to plan, build or design solutions to technical problems or processes.

Electrical Specialisation major

You have the choice to either nominate your Electrical Specialisation major when you first enrol in Engineering Science or delay nominating it until your second year.

The Engineering Science major provides a direct pathway to the Master of Professional Engineering.

Postgraduate courses

Our postgraduate programs have been designed to maximise flexibility and qualifications may be obtained by a combination of coursework and research.

We offer coursework and research opportunities, including a Master's by coursework, Master's by research, PhDs and professional doctorates. Research degrees involve two to four years full-time research under the guidance of a supervisor in the School. They provide a unique opportunity to focus on an area of research for several years and make an important contribution to the development of your chosen research area.

Most of the research projects are strongly linked with industrial needs and are funded in large part by industry as well as various departments of the State and Federal governments. The focus is on your capacity for creative, independent research, critical thinking, time and project management, problem solving and organisation and communication skills.

Master of Professional Engineering

The Engineering Science major provides a direct pathway to the Master of Professional Engineering. Beyond practice as a professional engineer, this course will allow you to pursue further research studies in engineering, as well as to seek employment in a wide range of related industries.

There are usually no examinable coursework components to a Master's by research or a PhD
