Electronics and Communications Engineering (B.S)

 Important Note:

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.

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.

The specific objectives of the program are to prepare graduates to meet the expectations of employers and  to pursue advanced study, if desired.

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)
