Discover Electrical and Electronic Engineering Day
Electrical and electronic technologies are present all the way from the nano-world of opto-electronic devices to the global scale of communication systems and inter-galactic space exploration. Electrical and electronic engineering naturally partners other disciplines to open whole new engineering fields, such as mechatronics, biomedical sciences and avionics.
Renewable energy generation, wireless communications, robotics and computer multimedia are just some examples of complex systems that require the knowledge and skills of electrical and electronic engineers. This event gave an insight into the skills that our students acquire while studying to become electrical and electronic engineering experts.
