It is basically similar to EE except you do more physics labs than other EE students. That's about the difference really.batigol said:Does anyone here choose optical communication/optic for their specialisation? I'm wondering what it's like since the EE/T website doesnt provide much info about this. Thanks in advance.

Please don't get confused over hard and lot of work.deon_c said:just a quick question...i did 3 unit maths in y12 and didnt find it hard but i didnt find it easy either... is electrical engineering one of those subjects that requires heaps and heaps of work, because ive noticed hat in school the key to dogin wel in maths was practice...i have a strong interest in electrical engineering but wherever i go peopel tel me its extremely hard and maths oriented..how true is this?
complex number, matrix manipulation. vector algebra, probabilities, convergence of series, first & second order differential equations - the solving of, set theory, limits, EIGENVECTORS.username? said:hi. im joining in 2006. Got into the BEng/Bsci (electrical) course but i think ill drop the BSci when i get there. Is there a way I can get my hands on the text list for the first year or semester? I tried to contacting the faculty but they wouldnt respond. I graduated almost 3 years ago and just want to go thruogh the portions..
Also, ive started to revise my math after reading up on the previous posts. IS calculus a major part cause thats what im going through only... or do i need to go through the other stuff like complex numbers and matrices and all? Thanks..and if anyones got the names of any of the books they have had to buy for the elctrical eng, pls post them so i could buy them..thanks a tonne.
Yesusername? said:1) Is it true that for the first year, only the engineering course is taught..and the science from the second onwards?
For as long as you computer runs both MS Windows and Linux, laptop/desktop is fine. Laptop for note-taking is not necessary.username? said:2) is a laptop useful for the elec engineering course?
Looking at the enrollment from 2003 I would say between 150 to 200 for Elec Eng alone. Uni-wise, I dunno. This might change next year since they introduced a number of unknown factors to high school student include flexible first year and Multiple Criteria Entry.username? said:3) anyone know the number of students, approx, that join each year?
It is the days between the last teaching day of the semester and the first day of your examination. At UNSW the minimum days of stuvac is 4username? said:4) whats stuvac?
Wireless - yes, Free - nousername? said:5) just wondering if unsw has free wireless internet access anywhere on campus other than the libraries...
This year high school student are given the choice of 'flexible first year engineering degree' at UNSW and let the student to decide which engineereing degree they want to do at the beginning of year 2. This might encourage people to choose this over straight Elec Eng degree, so enrollment might drop.STx said:what are the "unknown factors to high school student include flexible first year and Multiple Criteria Entry". thx
There are a couple of options. First, you could just get someone else whos at your college to get your dinner as takeaway and then you could heat it up at one of the microwaves at college. Otherwise, theres a maccas on anzac parade which is probably a 7 or 8 min walk. You could also go to randwick which is about 10 minutes walkusername? said:6) and this one's for anyone staying the kensos..or anywhere on campus i suppose. I heard the cafeteria closes at 7...is there any place you can head to later than that, other than to town, to pick up something to eat? on campus maybe?
hehe, is computer eng similar to to elec eng in those terms? What do you guys think?Li0n said:What slidey said is somewhat true, good maths skills will make the mechanical calculations for elec much easier/faster but speed isn't really an issue to being a good elec engineer.
To be good at elec you need to understand concepts well and clear, you'd be surprised how many different final answers a single question can get all. Concepts in general are extremely easy and you can learn in 5 minutes, but applying these concepts to questions is hard . You can't learn by looking at tutorial solutions (90% of all PS/CR average elec students do this me included). You have to start early, do 10 trillion questions and you're set.
You need to be efficient in your working, try look for shortcuts yet be very careful because one mistake can waste you another 20 minutes in an exam, 5 pages of messy rubbish which will get you 0. Elec markers (from experience) are very lazy and really cbf looking through garbage which is where i go down in.
