Electronics and Communications Engineering (B.S)

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Undergraduate Degree Programs

Bachelor of Science

To achieve the mission of Electronics and Communication 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, signal processing and communications among other topics. State-of-the-art electronics and communications 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.

The undergraduate program in the electronics and communications engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET

Program Objectives
The electronics and communications engineering program at AUC graduates an electronics and communications engineer who, within a few years of graduation, fulfills societal needs, with consideration for ethical and environmental issues and an appreciation of lifelong learning, in one or more of the following roles:

  • A professional team member in a multidisciplinary environment, local or global.
  • A leader in electronics and communications engineering through notable achievements, promotion and professional development.
  • A successful member of an advanced academic or research organization.
  • A successful entrepreneur.

Learning Outcomes
Completing the requirements of the Electronics and Communications Engineering Program at AUC, our students will develop:

  • An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
  • An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
  • An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  • An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
  • An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
  • An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  • An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.

A total of 147 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 cr.) and the capstone projects ECNG 4980  and ECNG 4981  (3 crs).
