Electrical and Information Engineering is everywhere. By combining the rigor of science, the power of engineering, and the thrill of discovery, our graduates change the world. Through the development and application of engineering principles across disciplines, we are tackling the major challenges of the 21st century.
Wits EIE has awarded electrical (and related) engineering degrees for nearly one hundred years, and our highly ranked 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, ensuring our renowned graduates are versatile and well equipped for the future with a professional degree that is internationally accredited by the Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA).
We are proudly successful in our mission to produce graduates who are capable of taking up influential leadership positions in the fields of electrical engineering and beyond. This is evidenced by the number of EIE alumni who are founders and directors of well-known tech companies, as well as those who have played leading roles in developing some of the technologies we employ everyday.
We invite you to join us and apply for your postgraduate qualifications or a prestigious undergraduate degree in electrical engineering (at EIE we don't distinguish between "heavy" and "light" current), information engineering (which is similar to the electrical degree with additional telecommuniction and software courses) or even biomedical engineering or computer game design (known as digital arts).
