Our Bachelor of Electronics Engineering (Communication) with Honours degree is a four year professional undergraduate program, developed in response to the needs of industry. The curriculum is designed to nurture the engineers and entrepreneurs of tomorrow required by the country in line with Industry 4.0 or 4IR Fourth Industrial Revolution in Malaysia, focussing on digitisation and artificial intelligence as an integral part of our curriculum. Our aim is to produce engineers with a high level of analytical and engineering design skills to cater for the rapidly growing electronics and communication industry, the strongest sector in Malaysia.

Our degree programme is based on leading-edge research topics, vital in a field that advances so quickly, and combines theory with practical, hands-on project based learning – the chance to turn ideas into real systems. It mainly focuses on communications technology, giving the students a solid base for theoretical and practical knowledge in digital communications, design and analysis, digital imaging, computer hardware and software, and the practical application of engineering principles. Students not only benefit from the theoretical knowledge provided but have the opportunity to apply what they have learnt during the lab sessions. Students are exposed to experiential learning approach through the introduction of simple but innovative projects from initial year of the programme.

Besides building a solid foundation of the fundamentals, students are exposed to emerging trends in the industry, moulding them to be high calibre professionals of the future. The students are given an opportunity to choose specialization electives focussing on their identified areas of interest such as embedded systems, satellite communication, VLSI technology, microcontrollers and optical communication.

In Pre-Final Year, students do an Integrated Design Multidisciplinary project and are expected to undergo professional industrial internship for at least half a year before entering into final year. The School has strong links with many industries in Malaysia with several visiting industrial experts that contribute to the strong industrial relevance of our programme.

The electronics and communication engineering is a rapidly developing field where the students will be exposed to two major areas in line with Industry 4.0 which requires digital transition. Communication engineering with the proper infrastructure platform of Electronics Engineering are expected to lead the transformation of many companies towards Industry 4.0 solution in all important business solution.
