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

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

With graduates’s employability in mind, this four-year programme is designed in consultation with industry experts, who contribute to the ongoing development of the programme, keeping it current and relevant to prepare you for an exciting career in telecommunications and computing. Combining fundamental theories with practical experience, our programme equips graduates with competency in the design, implementation, and management of communication systems for information processing and transmission, as well as creation of applications for mobile devices and Internet-based services.

The programme focuses on mobile communications and computing, beginning with intensive, broad-based coverage of engineering mathematics, electronics, circuit and signals, networking, computer and microprocessor systems, and power systems, followed by advanced modules such as industrial mathematics, digital signal processing, communication systems and networks, object-oriented programming, embedded Internet of Things’ (IoT) systems, artificial intelligence (AI), cybersecurity. Together with non-technical subjects such as project management, workplace communication and law, as well as the opportunity to undergo industrial training, capstone and graduate projects cultivate graduates with employable skills to address the challenges of the 5G and big data era.
