Electronics & Telecommunications
What is Electronics & Telecommunications Engineering?
Communication systems – such as satellites, telephones, optical fibres and computers – are vital in everyday communication, defence, transport, civil aviation, and even medical equipment such as the bionic ear, pacemakers and life support systems.
Electronics engineers are responsible for creating these systems, using small amounts of electrical energy to analyse, transmit and store information.
Their work forms the basis of modern communications, IT and exciting fields like microelectronics and the use of silicon chip technology.
Electronic engineers work in a broad array of industries: communications, broadcasting, aviation, defence, robotics, computers, medical engineering, transport, telecommunications or meteorology.
