Bachelor of Technology in Electronic Engineering

Course Overview

Electronics is the buzzword of modern technology but has a history dating back to the first telephone and a little later the wireless. The discovery of semi-conductor technology opened up a vast area of new applications for increasingly smaller and more powerful devices. Qualified Technicians in this field of study are involved in telecommunications and radio/TV broadcasting, automation in which programmable controllers are used to operate systems, and the maintenance and repair of electronic equipment and systems which is a field of specialisation.

Admissions Requirements

30 points in 5 subjects including A-symbols in Mathematics, Physical Science and in English on NSSC Ordinary Level OR a pass in at least 4 N5/N6 subjects with at least 40% in each including Mathematics and Physics equivalent subject OR a pass of the InSTEM programme.

Career Opportunities

Engineering technologists in areas of telecommunications and radio/ TV broadcasting, repair of electronic equipment and systems.
