Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Electrical and Electronic)
R2/522/6/0228 (01.09.2027) | MQA/FA4324
Electrical and Electronic Engineering combines the fields of mathematics, science and technology to design, implement, analyze and manufacture electrical and electronic systems and devices. From the global positioning system that can continuously provide the location of a vehicle to the giant electric power generators, electrical and electronics engineers span a wide range of technologies. The program develops students’ abilities to analyse, identify, formulate and generate specific solutions in the broad field of electrical and electronic engineering. You will become capable to apply your skills and understanding in the design, construction, operation and maintenance of electronic systems and electrical energy infrastructure, or use the course as a pathway into research or further learning.
