The Electronics and Computer Engineering program has been developed in conjunction with employers, to meet the demand for male and female graduates with strong software and hardware engineering skills, along with mathematical analysis ability. Graduates of this degree programme will play a key role in the research, design, development, testing and installation of future systems. They will often work in teams to tackle complex and challenging problems. Graduates can also pursue higher degrees through research (MEng, PhD, etc.) or through taught postgraduate programmes (MSc, MEng, MBA, etc.). The programme of study therefore offers an excellent choice, thus enhancing the range of employment prospects and career choice options for the student.
This course will give you the skills to employ and develop technologies to address many of the challenges of the coming decades, including energy, climate change, health and wellbeing, as well as other innovative areas such as entertainment and autonomous vehicles.
Graduates of the Electronics and Computer Engineering program will develop successful careers in a wide range of application areas, including research, design and development:
The first two years of the programme will provide you with a solid practical and theoretical foundation in: programming and computer languages, software, digital and analogue electronics, electrical sciences and engineering mathematics. During these first two years, you will be guided towards choosing one of the major options to undertake in the final two years of the program. For years 3 and 4, you will select one of the major options. You will also have the freedom to choose a General option, where you can select modules from the various streams of core options, rather than specialising in a single core option.
Work experience is provided through a positive and motivating thirty-week co-operative education period, which is an integral part of the programme. it will provide you with experience and practice in the field of your chosen major option area. In the final year (year 4) you will undertake a major individual project, which generally solves a real-world problem. The project involves advanced design and implementation work, and builds confidence by putting into practice the skills and knowledge you have acquired throughout the course.
Each student will complete their co-op education during semester 1 of year 3.
After your co-op placement, you will continue with your primary choice.
