Electrical engineering covers an enormously wide field. The principal aim can be summarised as everything that has to do with power (or energy). Among others, this includes not only the generation and distribution of electrical energy. This application is extremely diverse. For example, there are the generally well-known applications such as power supply to homes, factories, et cetera. BEng Electrical Engineering UP   This includes various ways of getting electrical power from point A to B, how to get it there as reliably as possible as well as to supply it as cheaply as possible. Just think of the frustration the last time you experienced a power failure! Furthermore, illumination and acoustics also are a part of this field. Other applications are not necessarily obvious, but they include electrical vehicles, savings on electricity bills by using electricity more effectively. Have you ever thought about the fact that a radio-controlled car is the brainchild of an electrical engineer? To summarise, the work of an electrical engineer is very diverse. The one moment you are occupied with computers and programming and the next moment with something completely different such as controlling a large electrical motor with a computer. Therefore, if you find a rapidly changing working environment and numerous challenges attractive, then Electrical engineering is for you.

Technological development, as well as its applications and management, is essential for the creation of wealth in any country. Here, at the Department of Electrical, Electronic and Computer Engineering at TUKS, we are extremely well equipped to provide prospective engineers with the necessary training and knowledge to enable them to make a meaningful contribution in this area. Not only is the Department the biggest in the country, it also offers the largest number of specialisation fields. The Department has unique ties with industry and one of the advantages this holds for our students is the fact that they are in demand; not only in the local market, but internationally as well.
