Since the discovery of the electron in 1897, and the invention of the transistor in 1947, Electronics and Communications Engineering has continued to experience tremendous growth that has greatly impacted our lives. The present “information age,” which features electronic data storage, retrieval, manipulation, and high-speed computing and communications, is based on high-density microelectronic (and soon nanoelectronic) solid-state integrated circuits. Revolution in wireless and optical communications technologies also necessitates fundamental understanding of the generation, propagation, and detection of the electromagnetic waves.
The goal of the Electronics and Communications Engineering program at AUC is to provide students with the highest quality education. The Electronics and Communications Engineering curriculum is designed to strike a balance between theoretical and laboratory experience and to impart fundamental and practical understanding of the principles required for a successful career in electronics and communications engineering. ECNG graduates will be prepared for a career in Egypt or abroad.
