BSc - Electronics and Computer Science

 

Description

The fields of Electronics and Computer Science are among the most important technical fields in this age of rapid developments in ICT. The skills of individuals trained in these fields are highly sought after by employers locally and overseas. This programme is being proposed in order to allow students to develop full mastery of both areas at the undergraduate level as part of a three year degree.

In the past students have been able to undertake a double major in Electronics and Computer Science; however, owing to the on-going reform of the curriculum, this has become extremely difficult to do in three years. The double major in Electronics and Computer Science has been the most popular combination for students studying Electronics and completing a double major. Students graduating with the Electronics/Computer Science double major account for approximately 38 per cent of the 507 students graduating with a degree in Electronics between 1994 and 2012.
