Four Year Plan

Electrical and Computer Engineers design and maintain electrical control systems and components. They are multi-skilled and are able to work in projects from the design phase, through development, implementation, testing, up to client follow-up. The impact of their work is seen all over the building industry, services, transportation, manufacturing, and production and distribution of power.
