BS in Electronics & Communications Engineering

“The Electronics and Communications Engineering program is no longer receiving new admissions as starting from Fall 2021 the program is being replaced by Electrical and Electronics Engineering program. For information on the Electrical and Electronics Engineering program please click this link“.

Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) is among the most interesting and challenging fields of study in electrical engineering. The areas of study in electronics and communication engineering are quite diverse and therefore, they open enormous job opportunities for student in a wide spectrum of industries.

Students learn the fundamentals of electric circuits, electronics and signals and systems. They develop a thorough understanding of analog and digital communication systems and get trained on designing and analyzing various electronic circuits and modern telecommunication systems. Because of their broad range of skills, ECE graduates are in high demand for employment. They are also well prepared to pursue graduate studies.


The mission of the Electronics and Communications Engineering program is to provide graduates with a sound understanding of fundamental engineering principles and applications in the field. Graduates will have a comprehensive understanding of subjects like signals and systems, digital logic, circuits and electronics, and the theory and applications of digital communications, particularly networks and wireless communications. Graduates will be prepared for both graduate study and employment. They will be able to demonstrate their ability to apply the knowledge and methodologies of electronics and communications engineering essential for a successful career.

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

The graduates of Electronics and Communications Engineering Program, within a few years will be:

  1. Successful practitioners and innovators in the region and worldwide.
  2. Continuing their professional development throughout their careers.
  3. Working productively and ethically in teams, and functioning effectively in diverse cultural environments.

Program Learning Outcomes
