Bachelor of Engineering (Hons.)
Electronics majoring in Telecommunications

(R2/523/6/0100) 12/17 (MQA/FA8758)

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.

After completion of the foundation programme you can opt for a degree programme from either Faculty of Engineering (FOE) or Faculty of Engineering & Technology (FET).
