Become an Electrical and Electronics Engineer
Electrical and electronics engineers use their skills to design, develop and maintain electronic equipment. They work in a variety of industries and government agencies.
NTU’s EEE course has a strong emphasis on practical and group projects including competitions with MNC corporate labs such as Rolls-Royce, Thales, NXP, Singapore Power and Schaeffler Group. This helps you to develop problem-solving and creative thinking skills.
Basics of Engineering
Engineers use creative problem-solving and the principles of science and math to renovate technology, create new inventions and improve machines. From designing sound buildings and safe bridges to developing medicine, space exploration and automation, engineering encompasses a diverse array of disciplines.
While each discipline has its own unique allure and challenges, many of them overlap in their core functions. For example, aerospace engineers often rely on the insights of materials engineers to choose the best components for a spacecraft, while computer hardware engineers frequently collaborate with electrical engineers to optimize system performance.
All engineering majors start with a foundation of courses that introduce fundamental engineering concepts and techniques. From the calculus-based Engineering Analysis sequence to Differential Equations for Engineers, these courses will provide you with the necessary mathematical skills to succeed in your chosen engineering discipline.
Electronics and Circuits
Become an electrical engineer with a strong foundation of theoretical and practical exposure to modern technologies. Develop your skills in analysing, designing and improving electric, electronic and computer systems through a series of projects.
You will be introduced to the key underpinning science and mathematics of engineering as well as its fundamentals, such as analogue circuits, power electronics and digital logic design. You will also be able to practice core mechanical principles.
The School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering was one of the three founding schools of NTU when it was still known as Nanyang Technological Institute in 1985. It has since grown into a prestigious engineering school that nurtures competent engineers year after year. Its scientists are developing several scientific directions that have the potential to make a difference in the world. These include printed circuits that can detect signals from the human body, such as heart rates or blood pressure, and smarter products like milk cartons that let you know when it’s time to restock, or bandages that monitor vital signs during surgery.
Mechanics of Materials
The mechanics of materials covers the principles of the exchange and conservation of energy, the forces that act on physical bodies, the analysis and design of structural members subjected to tension, compression, bending and shear. The course also includes a study of the chemical properties of metals, plastics and ceramics and the mechanical behaviour of these substances.
Each year you’ll take a combination of core modules to give you a solid grounding in engineering, specialist modules where you’ll gain the skills for your subject area and practical and project modules where you’ll work on a task or project set by industry.
The NTU School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) has a strong international reputation. It is among the world’s top 20 universities for teaching quality in electrical and electronic engineering (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2024). It has excellent industry links with companies including Rolls-Royce, Thales, SMRT and Continental. Its research is driven by the needs of society, focusing on cutting-edge areas of science and technology.
Throughout your studies you will work on engineering projects, both in class and in the lab. These will provide you with the skills to solve real-world problems using industry standard software and hardware. Recent projects have included designing an energy harvester, reverse engineering everyday objects and using industry standard design tools to create integrated circuits.
Our School’s faculty research is supported by over $80 million in annual funding and features over 300 researchers from around the world. Their work spans the fields of Big Data Analytics, Internet of Things (IoT), Intelligent Transportation (V2X), Satellites, Photonics and Autonomous Systems, Power and Energy Engineering and Communications Engineering.
The School maintains strong links with corporate laboratories in Singapore and abroad. This enables us to identify synergies with existing and seek new opportunities in areas of high demand.
