Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Electronic Communications
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”
The objective of this programme is that of producing professional engineers who are both academically prepared and practically trained to satisfy the requirements of local industry especially in the field of electronic communications. Moreover these graduates will be suitably prepared to embark on careers or further their studies abroad.
Communications is one of the fastest moving technological fields that require constant updating. This course has been designed with that concept in mind and therefore strives to give you a sufficient solid foundation in the fundamental concepts so that you are in a position to further upgrade your knowledge and skills.
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 you in contact with modern technologies.
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.
Programme Learning Outcomes
