Life without electricity? We can’t even imagine it. Today, technology is everywhere. In appliances, telecommunications, security systems, fibre optics and smart buildings. And skilled electrical, electronics and audio-visual engineers and technicians are in demand. They design circuits, install alarms, work on the electrical control of industrial machinery and diagnose problems. They work on the occasional stage show or movie set too.

Interested in electrical and electronics engineering? Unitec’s Department of Electrotechnology can help you spark a bright future. All our programmes focus on you and your needs. It’s self-paced and interactive learning, a mix of theory and practice. And most importantly, it’s a launching pad into exciting careers.

Practice makes perfect. That’s why you’ll work on practical projects and design programmable logic controller systems. It’s also why you’ll spend many hours in our workshops and laboratories. It’s a great place to try out the latest electronics software, workbench-simulated circuits, mechatronics/electronic workbenches and lab volt electronic computer hardware. It’s also ideal for sharing ideas with our staff. They’re experts in electrical, electronics and computer engineering. And bright sparks, the lot of them.
