Electrical and telecommunications engineers are in high demand in every industry that uses technology. As an example, here is a list of companies that our students took internships or graduate roles with in a 12-month period.

Electrical, telecommunications and quantum engineers continue to be among the most sought-after professionals. Electrical Engineering continues to feature in lists of the best, highest-paying or most in-demand jobs, e.g. Indeed (27/2/20), Business Insider (17/7/20)  and Forbes (17/5/19).

30% of our academic staff have won faculty or UNSW awards for their teaching in the past 10 years. Some are YouTube stars. Courses include fantastic online resources for lectures, tutorials and labs, to complement extensive hands-on, face-to-face laboratory work. 

Our postgraduate student society STEEP run a growing number of events and activities every year, expanding its community. Established in 2018, STEEP aim to provide a common platform for postgraduate coursework students to foster networking, discover opportunities for professional development and enrich their UNSW experience. 

The recently refurbished ($104M), award-winning Electrical Engineering Building, with thousands of square metres of brand new teaching and research labs, the Real-time Digital Simulation Laboratory, the largest in any university world-wide, the Australian National Fabrication Facility, capable of producing sub-20nm semiconductor device features, the Joint National Fibre Facility, to name just a few.
