Have you ever wondered about the rapid advances in technology that have taken place during your lifetime- Do you know the inspiration behind most of these changes- And would you like to be inspired to create new products that will assist and enthral future generations-
Well, the inspiration comes from electrons. Electrons are energetic little blighters, and engineers have learnt to harness that energy of humanity.
With the help of engineers, electrons can respond to sound, light, heat, vibrations, chemicals - almost everything, in fact. As they respond and whiz around circuits, the energy from electrons can be turned into:
Not only that, but as they whiz around electrons radiate their intentions in the form of electromagnetic waves such as,
The workload placed on electrons will continue to grow into the foreseeable future. It is up to engineers to ensure that society continues to be served, and continues to be amazed, by the antics of energetic electrons.
To prepare engineers for these future challenges, ECU offers accredited four-year engineering degree programmes in Communication Systems and Electronic Systems.
This stream offers advanced topics on both mobile and stationary communication systems. Employment opportunities include industries involved with design, development and management of cellular telephony systems, mobile communications, satellite communications, radio and television broadcasting, local, metropolitan and wide area networks, and industrial data acquisition and remote control systems.Structure & Content
