Bachelor of Engineering (Hons.) Electronics majoring in Nanotechnology

Faculty of Engineering (FOE)

(R2/523/6/0016) 05/27 (MQA/FA3563)

The four-year nanotechnology programme is tailored for students gearing towards a professional career in the field of microelectronics and nanoelectronics. The programme provides a comprehensive undergraduate training in the electronics and nanoelectronics-related fields, such as nanomaterials, nanoscience, nanofabrication technology, nanoelectronic devices, MEMS/NMES, and diagnostic technology.

Our students are equipped with strong fundamentals in engineering such as circuit and signal analysis, field theory, electronics, control theory, digital logic, communications, and engineering mathematics. With elective subjects such as embedded Internet of Things’ (IoT) systems, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and cybersecurity, the students are prepared for the incorporation of nanotechnology into the IoT systems – Internet of Nano Things (IoNT). In preparation to be a professional engineer, courses such as management, economics, accounting, and law are also included in our programme. Students are required to complete an industrial training programme, a capstone project and a final year project which aim at building their competences in research and development, project management and practical problem-solving.
