Welcome to Electrical and Electronic Engineering, one of the departments of the Faculty of Engineering at Stellenbosch University. For shortcuts to the information you may be interested in, see the gateways to the right of this page. Otherwise, simply browse our site to see more about the latest offerings of – and happenings at – this dynamic department.

Not only is our campus one of the most beautiful, but studying at our department can lead you to a vast number of lucrative career opportunities, with our graduates in demand in almost every sector of the economy. Our department has won numerous international awards and have produced world-renowned engineers. Proof of our outstanding quality is the speed at which our engineers are usurped by the labour market. In other words, our electrical and electronic engineering graduates usually find work (or should we say answer their calling?) before you can say Ohm’s law.

The BEng programme in Electrical and Electronic Engineering will equip you with a broad knowledge base for a variety of career opportunities. The third and final years build on the base of mathematics and engineering sciences established during the first two years, with engineering applications in the fields of electrical energy, electronics, electromagnetic systems, computer systems, control systems and signal processing.

The programme is certified by the Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA), which will enable graduates to register as Professional Engineers. The Washington Accord also certifies the international acceptability of the Stellenbosch University engineering qualification. So in short, the degree we offer is accepted internationally. Moreover, many of our students enter the international labour market and excel in multinational companies.

An interactive Academic Support Programme is available for students from a disadvantaged background.

The Department of Electrical & Electronic Engineering offers postgraduate training to local and international students in the following disciplines:

Control Systems, Satellite Systems, Biomedical Electronics, Electrical Energy, Smart Grid Technology, Computational Electromagnetics, Microwaves and Antennas, Computer Systems, Telecommunications, Signal Processing and Machine Learning.

The postgraduate activity in the Department is the biggest engineering research activity in South Africa and offers students access to very advanced laboratories and facilities. Research is performed in close cooperation with local industry as well as international partners.
