The name of the Electronics Engineering department has been changed to be the Electronics and Communications Engineering department. This change is effective starting Spring 2014. All degrees offered by the department will reflect the new name starting Spring 2014, and all transcripts issued for students graduating Spring 2014 onwards will bear the new name.
The Master of Engineering Degree in Electronics and Communications Engineering prepares students for higher level professional practice in local and international markets, whether in private consulting practice, industry, or government activities. It is intended for electronics engineers who wish to master the practice in their field of specialty.
