Bachelor of Communications Engineering (Honours)
Engineering (Communications) (Honours)
|The Electrical and Computer Engineering Department provides a comprehensive education in the design of computers and in the representation and processing of information for enhancing human productivity. The department is currently offering two degree programmes: Computer and Information Engineering and Communications Engineering. Students pursuing these degree programmes will have an opportunity to acquire a comprehensive foundation in computer engineering, with subjects on both hardware and software. Each of the courses represents its own unique contribution to information technology. The present and future courses will provide a congruous collection of courses that can respond to the rapid advances in the fields of information and communication. By choosing a coherent set of electives in their third and fourth years, the students can adjust their learning according to their aptitudes and aspirations.|

3. Design/Development of Solutions (A) – Design solutions, exhibiting innovativeness, for complex engineering problems and design systems, components or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, economical, ethical, environmental and sustainability issues;
4. Investigation (D) - Conduct investigation into complex problems, displaying creativeness, using research-based knowledge, and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of information to provide valid conclusions
5. Modern Tool Usage (A & D) - Create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modelling, to complex engineering activities, with an understanding of the limitations;
6. The Engineer and Society (ESSE) - Apply reasoning informed by contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice and solutions to complex engineering problems;
7. Environment and Sustainability (ESSE) - Understand and evaluate the sustainability and impact of professional engineering work in the solutions of complex engineering problems in societal and environmental contexts;
8. Ethics (ESSE) – Apply professional ethics with Islamic values and commit to responsibilities and norms of professional engineering code of practices;
9. Communication (S) - Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions;
10. Individual and Team Work (S) - Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams and in multi-disciplinary settings;
11. Life Long Learning (S) - Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change
12. Project Management and Finance (S) - Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of engineering management and financial principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and/or leader in a team, to manage projects in multidisciplinary settings, and identify opportunities of entrepreneurship.
|A communication engineering degree prepares you for

Remember that many employers accept applications from graduates with any degree subject, so don't restrict your thinking to the jobs listed here.
Furthermore, all employers look for the following traits when hiring our graduate engineers:
Technical background – Interpersonal skills – Industrial training
At ECE, we make sure you are adequately equipped with these skills during your study at the department including added value traits like English language and Ethics.
|Your studies commence
with the common first year. Completion of the common first year will
develop your foundational skills for engineering while you sample from
the various branches of engineering. In this year you will develop your
skills and knowledge of fundamental engineering through completion of
practical hands-on design-and-build activities. At the conclusion of
first year, after experiencing the fundamentals of each discipline, you
nominate your branch of engineering for further study.
After specialising in the second year you will develop an in-depth understanding of the knowledge, techniques, tools and resources appropriate for your branch of engineering, as well as skills and knowledge of the application of engineering methods required to conduct, design and manage engineering projects.
The total credit hours for Bachelor of Communications Engineering is 139.
Duration of Study
|The course takes four years of full-time study to complete.|
