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.
The department of Electrical Engineering offers a PhD degree in Engineering Science and a PhD degree in Engineering Technology.
The Doctoral Programme in Technical Sciences offers doctoral studies in the fields of automation, energy, electricity, data and telecommunications engineering as well as industrial engineering, economic mathematics, statistics and mathematics. The goal is to train high calibre experts capable of independent research work to serve industries, the economic life, the world of academia and other organisations.
The Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate in Sustainable Energy Technologies and Strategies (SETS Joint Doctorate) is an international programme offered by six of the most renowned universities in this field of knowledge. It copes with the challenge to lead the technological transition required by today’s world needs in energy and sustainability. SETS Joint Doctorate is the only Ph.D. programme on energy and sustainability awarded the Erasmus Mundus excellence label by the European Commission. This excellence label has been granted only to twenty two international doctorates in all disciplines and Universities across Europe so far
The King's Centre for Robotics Research comprises six academics and 28 PhD students/RAs. It has an international reputation in the field of kinematics, mechanisms, and robotics, and their applications to medical science and production. Since 2001 the Centre has published over 300 papers in prestigious journals (including IEEE Transactions, ASME Transactions) and generated over £6 million in grant income, including £3 million in current grants. Our staff are reputed nationally and internationally in kinematics, robotics and mechatronics. We collaborate closely with the KCL Health Schools (including St Thomas’ and Guy’s Hospitals) and numerous industrial partners. The Centre is renowned for its multidisciplinary research at the interfaces between Mechanical Engineering, Electronic Engineering, Computer Science and Biomedical Engineering. The Centre is actively involved in research into such areas as computational kinematics, computational intelligence, reconfigurable mechanisms, intelligent algorithms and contr
The graduate curricula includes a broad array of foundational material, ranging from computer architecture to stochastic process to digital signal processing, that is intended to give graduate students the training needed to engage in state-of-the-art research. A broad selection of additional advanced classes provides students with training beneficial for engaging in industry employment upon graduation. Many master’s students are actively placed in software engineering positions in high-tech industries as well as in financial industries.
