The Bachelor of Electronics Engineering (Communication) with Honours is a four-year programme envisioned to produce competent industry-ready Engineers to cater to the rapidly growing Electronics industry, the strongest sector in Malaysia. Our Engineering Programme is approved by Ministry of Higher Education of Malaysia, designed according to the specifications set by Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC) Malaysia which is a delegated body of the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM) and quality assured by Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA).


The Electronics industry is now home to several major Multinational Companies (MNCs) from USA, Japan, Europe, Taiwan and Korea including Intel, AMD, Motorola, Toshiba, Infineon, ST Microelectronics, National Semiconductor, Fairchild, Renesas, NEC, CISCO, National Instruments and several others.


Electronics and Communications technology has become an integral part of our lives today and it has altered the way we live, the way we communicate, the way we work, the way we travel and also the way we eat!  One aspect of our lives that has been impacted tremendously is the way we communicate with the world around us. Developments such as email, SMS, MMS, video conferencing, Chatting using smartphones and computers have allowed us to connect with each other at breakneck speeds with the help of 3G and 4G Electronic Communication technologies. The major driving force behind the enormous growth of the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) industry is the exponential and revolutionary developments that have taken place in the field of Electronics and Communications Engineering.


This has grown into one of the most sophisticated and largest branches of Engineering. The curriculum is designed to nurture the future Engineers and Entrepreneurs of tomorrow by providing strong technical knowledge and managerial skills which are supplemented with substantial hands-on experience using the state-of-the-art Graphical System Design tools used by the Electronics Industries all over the Globe. The Industrial Training in the pre-final year of study acquaints the students with the real-world work culture and environment in the industries while also preparing them to assess their employment prospects. The Project work in the final year enables the students to be capable of conducting independent research. Furthermore, the students will also have an option to acquire professional certifications of MNCs which are a value addition to their career.


The Electronics and Communications Engineering is a rapidly developing field, which is quite thought provoking, innovative and challenging with excellent job opportunities for those who have the required skills, genuine interest and fascination towards technology.
