Discover where a UNSW Canberra Electrical Engineering degree could take your Defence career.
As a Navy graduate you are known as a Weapons Electrical Officer (WEO). You are responsible for the electronic systems associated with gun and missile control systems, navigation systems, air and ground communications, radar and sonar systems, and data systems.
As an Army graduate you choose between the Royal Australian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (RAEME) or Royal Australian Signals (RASigs) corps.
As an Airforce graduate you may choose to work with aircraft on systems responsible for airborne electrical generation and distribution; radar and weapons systems; flight control systems; or airborne communications systems.
The Electrical Engineering degree is built on a foundation of mathematics, computer science and physical science.
In your final year you specialise in areas such as communications, surveillance and radar, computer engineering or guided weapons electronics and undertake a major research project supervised by a member of academic staff.
