Electrical and computer systems engineering is an extremely diverse field, taking in biomedical, computer systems, electronics, electrical power engineering, robotics and telecommunications. This is a field that evolves rapidly, with new technologies and techniques being patented every day.
Electrical and computer systems engineering spans all scales of electrical and electronic engineering, from the fundamentals of circuits, electronic signals and signal processing; through digital electronics and systems on chips; to the designs of large scale power and telecommunication systems.
As an electrical and computer systems engineer you could work locally or internationally, in a wide range of industries, including power generation, industrial and power electronics, automation systems, computer programming, robotics, health care, and water and energy systems.

- Introduction to Systems Engineering (level two)
The common first year lays a foundation in the basic sciences of mathematics, physics and chemistry and introduces the disciplines available to you for further study. You will learn to apply your developing maths and science knowledge to real-life problems and begin to understand the interaction between engineering and society.
Depending on academic performance and quotas, you can pursue a specific discipline from your second year of study.
Monash Malaysia campus students must undergo training in an industrial-based environment after their third year of study, as required by the Board of Engineers Malaysia’s Engineering Accreditation Council. After the 12-week training, students must submit a written report, detailing your work experience.
Graduates can work in fields such as:
- building and construction
- computer programming
- food processing
- industrial electronics
- power generation
- sustainable technologies
