The Master of Engineering Degree in Electronics 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.

1. Program Objectives

The objectives of the Master of Engineering Degree in Electronics Engineering are to provide the graduates of the program with:

  • Detailed knowledge in product, systems, design and materials in electronics engineering.
  • Extensive knowledge in an area of student interest from one of the fields involved in electronics engineering.
  • Awareness of the local and global context in which electronics engineering is practiced, including economic and business practices, societal needs, and considerations of public health, safety, environment, culture and ethics.
  • An ability to solve unstructured engineering problems, think critically, function well in a team, and communicate effectively.
  • A high standard of written and oral communication on technical matters.
