Course Overview

The Electronics and Communication Engineering has been designed to impart knowledge and provide skills to students on basic concepts and theories of electronics and communication. These skills and knowledge will equip them in their professional lives by enabling them to undertake analysis, system implementation, operation, production, and maintenance of various applications.

During the course, students are provided hands-on working experience on electronic devices, circuits, communication equipment including transmitters, receivers and integrated circuits (IC), etc. Furthermore, students get a detailed understanding of analogue and digital transmission and reception of data, voice and video, microprocessors, satellite communication, microwave engineering, antenna and wave progression.

The curriculum and practical lessons have been so designed that at the end of the course, students will be to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of management principles of engineering. They will be able to evaluate economic and financial performance of engineering activities. Furthermore, they will also be able to demonstrate professional engineering regulations, standards and ethical principles for sustainable environmental development.

At the Cambridge Institute of Education, the ultimate objective is to equip students with knowledge and skills and prepare them for the industry. Besides technical skills, the students are also prepared with communication skills, leadership training, teamwork and other multi-disciplinary skills.
