Electronics and Communications

Image for Electronics & Computer Systems

Electronics is an exciting field that covers the technology responsible for many modern products which we often take for granted. It is frequently referred to as being the “enabling technology” because it is the backbone of most of our modern devices such as the mobile phone, computer, car, Xbox/PlayStation, TV and noise-cancelling headphones, to mention just a few, and they are all bursting at the seams with electronics technology. Studying with TAFE SA will teach you how to ‘enable the technology’ to do such amazing things.

You will also see electronics technology in defence systems, aviation, multimedia systems, communication systems from broadband to satellite communications, medical equipment such as ECGs, irrigation controls for vineyards and process control systems for food and wine production, safety and security systems, computer networks, robotics, and the list goes on.

Two major streams of study are available:

Electronics & Communications Engineering is concerned mainly with the systems used for the transmission and processing of information of all kinds, from simple circuits like audio amplifiers and sensors controlled motors to complex ones like aircraft and ship control, and navigation systems.

Computer Systems Engineering refers to the study that brings together electronic engineering with computer sciences to design, develop and maintain computer systems and other technological devices.

Electronics and Computer Systems Engineering technicians and paraprofessionals have expertise in a variety of diverse areas such as software design, electronic engineering and integrating software and hardware.
