Electrical engineering is a professional engineering field which deals with various electric-related issues like electric power engineering, electronics, power electronics. It has many sub-disciplines that are microelectronics, telecommunication engineering, signal processing, control engineering, computer engineering, integrated circuits, digital electronics, power engineering, optoelectronics. The field aims to look into the problems of electronic systems which can be large scale (electric-power engineering) or small scale (nanoelectronics). The discipline aims to provide knowledge about generation, distribution, transmission and application of electrical energy. Graduates can work as engineers in very broad job occupations, starting from manufacturing of electronic components to electrical power systems and telecommunication engineers.
The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Electrical and Electronic Engineering develops advanced research skills that will prepare you for a career in academia and other settings in which systematic and critical analytical skills are required. Upon graduating with a Doctor of Philosophy from RMIT University you will be able to produce creative solutions to existing and emerging complex engineering and engineering-rated problems in academia and industry.
KSOP has developed and implemented a novel PhD program in the area of Optics & Photonics. The PhD students are not only part of an excellent research environment but are also trained in a well-balanced and perfectly structured manner.
The department of Electrical Engineering offers a PhD degree in Engineering Science and a PhD degree in Engineering Technology.
The aim of the Engineering Doctorate program is to enhance the skills of already high performing professional engineers in the areas of detailed technical investigation, applied research and development, innovative design and analysis.
This PhD program provides advanced knowledge and research skill on topics of large scientific and technological impact, such as computers, electronics, energy, decision systems, control and robotics, and telecommunications. This program includes modules offered as part of the CMU-Portugal initiative and of Focus Areas of the Joint Doctoral Initiative established between IST and EPFL.
PhD. graduate of Power Engineering study program will obtain theoretical and methodological knowledge from key fields of power engineering as power plant modernization, research and development of new technologies by using direct energy conversion, power lines transmission capability increasing, operation control of power system, electric energy consumption rationalization, electrodevices diagnosis and prophylactic, living environment monitoring and protection.
The graduate of the third grade of the university study program Applied Mathematics achieves the profound theoretical and methodological knowledge and practical experiences from the crucial parts of Applied Mathematics comparable with the contemporary state of the Applied Mathematics in the world research, can analyze and solve the complicated and not standard tasks in Mathematics and its applications.
