Bachelor of Engineering (Hons.) (Electronics majoring in Telecommunications)

Faculty of Engineering (FOE)

(R/523/6/0168) 06/19 (MQA/FA4865)

This four-year programme trains future engineers in the design, implementation and management of communication systems for processing and transmitting information, as well as creation of applications for mobile systems and Internet- based services. Students will be exposed to the technical fields of analogue and digital communications, antenna and propagation, mobile and satellite communications, telephony, information theory, data communications, electromagnetic waves, optical communications, 4G technologies and beyond.

In addition, there will be intensive training in engineering mathematics, electronics, circuit and signals, computer and microprocessor systems, data communications and networking, electromagnetics, control theory, programming and power systems. A good coverage of subjects in management, economics, accounting and law is also emphasised. Students are required to undergo industrial training, implement capstone and graduate projects to cultivate skills and capabilities in practical problem-solving, system design, project implementation and management. By so doing, graduates are better prepared to address the challenges of an increasingly complex and rapidly evolving telecommunications industry.
