Graduate and Undergraduate Opportunities

Electrical & Electronic Engineering

What We Do - Electronics image of circuit board assembly
As an Electrical & Electronic Engineer, you’ll make decisions about electronic product content, optimising hardware and software concepts and developing design processes.

Sophisticated systems like ours don’t happen by accident. It takes the skill and dedication of thousands of electrical and electronic (hardware) engineers to make them a reality.

Join us and you’ll make decisions about electronic product content, optimise hardware and software design concepts, develop sophisticated design processes and test complex products.

Activities could include assessment of equipment behaviour and fault diagnosis, assessment of new technologies and components, conducting laboratory tests and capturing data, circuit/firmware simulation and modelling, data analysis, and the preparation of technical reports.

Gaining exposure to the entire project lifecycle, you’ll play a key role in both maintaining our existing systems and developing new technologies.

Welcome to Engineering in the real world.
