Career Opportunities

Graduates from this programme will find a career with companies that have a research-oriented component as part (or all) of the job profile (like CSIR). Specialised industries aimed at manufacturing, maintenance, renewable energy or systems engineering are also a target market for these graduates. This qualification will provide the graduates with higher levels of skills and knowledge to advance entrepreneurship, innovation, research and technology.

The M Eng. (Electrical) degree is a research-based postgraduate qualification at NQF Level 9 aiming towards the development of a candidate’s ability to handle independent scientific and technological investigations and to interpret the results to lead to problem solving capabilities in practice. The programme also prepares candidates for research careers in electrical engineering itself and areas that would potentially benefit from advanced engineering skills. Fields of specialisation include geotechnical, transportation and water engineering.
