Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Electronics Engineering
1 year full-time
MCAST IN COLLABORATION WITH FRAUNHOFER-GESELLSCHAFT
MCAST-BTEC Higher National Diploma in Electrical/Electronics Engineering OR MCAST-BTEC Higher National Diploma in Electrical/Electronics Engineering (Electronics) Further details are available under the section “Applications for MCAST Vocational Degrees”
This course builds on the experiences and knowledge assimilated during your two-year HND programme. The objective of this third year, which leads to a degree, is that of producing professional engineers who are both academically prepared and practically trained to satisfy the requirements of local industry. Moreover these graduates will be suitably prepared to embark on careers or further their studies abroad.
Electronics is still a highly relevant and attractive technological field that has evolved at a rapid rate. This interdisciplinary field is practically used in every aspect of modern life as exemplified by the advances in computers and communications. The course will bring students in contact with the modern technologies and gives an in-depth mix of knowledge and skills.
Students reading the BSc (Hons) may enrol on the BEng (Hons) degree by the end of November of the first year.
The purpose of assessment is to ensure that effective learning of the content has taken place. For each unit delivered students will be assigned a mixture of home-based and time-constrained assignment in class. At the end of the course students will also present their thesis.
