Guess who generated most of the technologies in the modern world? Who has enabled all your gadgets to work so amazingly? Electrical and computer engineers, of course! Yes, we drive innovations. If this excites you, then Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) is for you.
First, you have to be firmly grounded on the fundamental concepts and skills which are important to the practice of electrical and computer engineering. We offer two undergraduate programmes – Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical Engineering and Bachelor of Engineering in Computer Engineering (jointly hosted by the Faculty of Engineering’s Department of ECE and the School of Computing’s Department of Computer Science). The two programmes place strong emphasis on understanding the engineering principles through exposure to hands-on learning and discovery. They offer a high degree of flexibility in specialisation, supplemented with special programmes promoting design, student innovation, enterprise and leadership. Our teaching is supported by faculty members with strong research expertise and working in more than 30 well-equipped laboratories.
There are opportunities for you to apply your knowledge and skills in developing nano-satellites, airborne radar systems and other advanced engineering systems, as well as in product design with a special focus on frugality. We work with industries to design internship programmes which are dove-tailed with final year projects to complement the academic rigour which we provide in the classrooms. We help students to achieve their career goals through internship programmes and also through guidance and counselling.
Our graduates are sought after by employers across all economic sectors, both in fields related to ECE and in non-ECE fields (such as chemical, petroleum, medical, aerospace, construction and financial industries). Some graduates have even distinguished themselves as entrepreneurs.
