Faculty of Engineering (FOE)

(R2/523/6/0010) 05/20 (MQA/FA3563)

For students planning for professional careers in the fields of microelectronics and nanoelectronics, the four-year nanotechnology programme provides a complete undergraduate training in electronics and nanoelectronics-related fields, such as nanomaterials, nanosciences, nanofabrication technology, nanoelectronic devices, MEMS/NEMS, and diagnostic technology.

In addition, students are also exposed to basic engineering training in circuit and signal analysis, field theory, electronics, control theory, digital logic, communications and engineering mathematics. To better prepare the students for a professional career in engineering, courses in basic management, economics, accounting and law are also included. This programme also provides students with industrial experience and research training by requiring them to complete industrial training and graduate projects.
