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.
Laser Micromachining and Laboratory-on-a-Chip with research interests in:Electronic and dielectric properties of biological materials; Electrokinetic manipulation of bioparticles; Biological polymers, enzymes and cells; Microfabrication of biofactory and laboratory-on-a-chip; Medical therapeutics and diagnostics
This exciting EPRSC funded research project aims to develop new nanostructured electrode materials based mainly on LiFePO3 and related materials, which will then be used to build lithium-ion batteries.
You can choose from a broad range of research specialisms offered by the School of Electronic, Electrical and Computing Engineering. PhD study normally takes three years full-time (or part-time equivalent).
Organic Electronincs with research interests in: Synthesising new monomers and polymers for electronic device application; Fabrication of polymer MISFETs, Schottky diodes, LEDs, electrical and optical characterisation of polymers and devices, AFM/EFM/Kelvin probe studies on fabricated devices.
Our mission is to produce world-class graduates and research output in engineering related subjects, serving the best interests of the State, the national community and the University through rigorous and innovative learning and research practices.
