Why choose this field
Electrical Engineering is the study and application of electricity, electronics and electromagnetism. Electrical Engineers study the uses of electricity and equipment for power generation and distribution. This dynamic field involves the design of electronic circuits and the development of systems such as aircraft autopilots and state-of-the-art computers. Micro-electronics, the manufacture and repair of products like computers, microwaves and control systems, also falls within the sphere of Electrical Engineering.
N2: Engineering Studies, or a Grade 11, or a Senior Certificate, or NSC with Mathematics and Science.
