At the Wits School of Electrical and Information Engineering (EIE), we work in diverse industries and conduct research in a broad range of areas. Our community of engineers develop software to handle the most cutting-edge IT developments, and find ways to electrify rural communities.
Our engineers create unique communication protocols and build machines to replace severed limbs. We are continually making breakthroughs that enable people to communicate more easily, manage their environments more effectively, and lead more comfortable lives than ever before.
Wits EIE has awarded electrical engineering degrees for nearly one hundred years, and our educational programmes have been at the cutting edge since their inception. We provide in-depth education in engineering principles that are built on mathematics, computation, and the physical and life sciences.
We encourage our students to apply what they learn through projects, internships and research. We are proudly successful in our mission to produce graduates who are capable of taking up leadership positions in the fields of electrical engineering and beyond. This is evidenced by the number of alumni who are founders and directors of leading South African companies.
