Electronics and Communications Engineering (B.S)


Bachelor of Science

To achieve the mission of Electronics and Communications Engineering requires a solid core of  foundation courses in physics, mathematics, computer science and general engineering, which is also essential for life-long learning. Concentration courses in Electronics and Communications Engineering (that integrate theory and laboratory wherever possible) cover electromagnetics, circuits, electronics, digital design and communications. Courses in electric machinery, classical control, computer systems, the capstone senior thesis and industrial internship are also required. State-of-the-art electronics engineering elective courses provide seniors and advanced undergraduates the opportunity to develop a thrust in advanced electronics, communication systems and computers.

Electronics and Communications Engineering accepts high school students with science/mathematics background. Undeclared students may also be accepted to the program when they finish criteria courses set by the department. Admission to the program is supervised by the department and depends on available places and student’s performance record.

A total of 162 credits are required for the bachelor’s degree in Electronics and Communications Engineering:

Core Curriculum Requirements (33 credits)


The remaining 7 credit hours required to satisfy the core are fulfilled by the concentration Science/lab (4 crs) and the capstone projects

  and   (3 crs)

General Electives (0-9 credits)
