Offered by the Department of Physics

BSc Honours in Electronics and IT degree expects to enhance the required knowledge and skills of its graduates and will provide greater opportunity for partnership/employment with industry, private and public sectors. The degree is awarded upon completion of a minimum of 120 hours in related subjects. The program is designed for students who are interested in developing strong professional & industrial capabilities in the field of information technology and electronics. During the final semester, students will have the opportunity to gain industry exposure via industrial training. Industry research project enables students to carry out applied research using the theoretical knowledge gained throughout their undergraduate career.

The intensive course study, plus spending time in personal study and research along with the industrial training helps the student to build a solid foundation for their future career.

Degree Aims

  • Provide a strong foundation in theoretical, practical and design aspects of electronics andinformation technology
  • Develop and foster concepts of professional practices, innovation and enterprise
