Electrical Engineering Graduate Jobs overview

Electrical engineers are concerned with the design, development, construction and maintenance of equipment, machines and systems used for the generation, transmission and use of electricity. Although employment for electrical engineers has risen over the past ten years, the number of job openings in the next five years is predicted to be below average.

Employment Industries

The main sectors that Electrical Engineers are employed in are:

  • Professional, Scientific and Technical Services
  • Electricity
  • Gas
  • Water and Waste Services
  • Mining
  • Construction

The majority of Electrical Engineers are employed in NSW, Victoria and Queensland.

What to Expect as a Graduate

Due to the variety of industries that employ electrical engineering graduates, there are a number of sub-disciplines to work in. These include:

  • Science and Transport
  • Software
  • Electronics
  • Microelectronics
  • Signal Processing
  • Computers
  • Telecommunication

Electrical engineers can therefore work in a range of work settings, including offices, remote sites, and workshops.

Electrical Engineering graduates earn more than average graduates, with an average annual salary of $65,000. Electrical Engineers also make the top twenty highest paid jobs in Australia. Those starting in an industry job earn the highest, followed by those in government programmes and then those starting in an engineering practice.

The high wages of Electrical Engineering graduates are due to a skills shortage in this area, with retention of employees with these skills a major challenge for businesses. As a result, Electrical Engineering graduates have the highest employment rate for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths graduates, with 78% of graduates finding full time employment four months after graduating.

Graduate Employers

Some of the companies that hire Electrical Engineering graduates are:

There are also a number of opportunities for Electrical Engineering graduates overseas.
