Admission Information

What do electrical engineers and computer science engineers do?

Electrical Engineers

  • Design and develop robots.
  • Design and develop autonomous driving through electronic and electrical circuit design.
  • Design and build satellite, cellular and wireless communications.
  • Research and develop automotive, industrial and air/space vehicle control systems.
  • Design and build smart grid technology.

Electrical engineers play a vital role in practically all modern inventions — from microchips to satellite communications for space travel.

As the technology sector grows, the demand for those who create, understand and develop electrical or electronic systems increases.

Electrical engineering covers a wide range of sub-fields, from energy generation and distribution to digital computers, autonomous driving and satellite communications.

Computer Scientists and Engineers

  • Develop software for all aspects of life.
  • Research and develop artificial intelligence for real life applications.
  • Create virtual reality, augmented reality, and human-computer interactive systems.
  • Create next-generation computing systems.
  • Solve cyber security issues.

Technology changes quickly. Computer scientists and engineers are on the cutting edge of the latest advances. They design, develop, operate and maintain computer hardware and software.

It's a great career if you like to be continually challenged and have an affinity for computers, math and science. You'll put those skills to use every day to create computing and software systems for every imaginable real-world application.
