Bachelor Of Electronics Engineering (Communication) With Honours

UCSI University Kuala Lumpur
Cheras, Kuala Lumpur
Communication Engineering is the branch of engineering that deals with communications technology development and operations, including telecommunications and computer networks, to name a few.
Modern society has become increasingly dependent on instantaneous communication of information in a world of integrated digital communication networks. Thus, this degree programme caters to society’s demands for seamless transfer of information, through mobile phones, TVs, radios, the Internet or other media.
Communication has been identified as one of the major growth areas in the industry. Students will learn about operating principals and designing devices, ranging from mobile phones to wireless networks and satellite communication systems, among others. Notably, the programme covers a wide range of courses, from electrical science and circuit design to computing, optical fibre systems, microwave circuits, communications and digital networks.
To nurture competitiveness among graduates, they are also required to undergo industrial training under UCSI University’s Co-operative Training Placement Scheme at the end of the 2nd and 3rd academic years. This training allows students to learn and familiarise themselves with the real-life working environment. Apart from that, students also undertake a research and development project in their final year of study.

Programme Details
The duration of the programme is 4 years.
In each year there are two long-semesters consisting of 14 weeks of instruction with 2 weeks of examinations, and one short-semester consisting of 7 weeks of instruction with 1 week of examinations. The long-semesters start in January and May, while the short-semester starts in September.
In the months of November & December students undergo industrial training under the Co-Operative Placement Scheme to learn and to familiarise themselves with real life working environment. In addition, students also undertake a research and development project in their final year.
The number of contact hours per courses per week depends on the credit and teaching methodology of each course. Each credit is approximately equivalent to 1 hour of class, or 2 hours of labs per week.

The teaching and learning strategies and assessment are designed depending on and according to the nature of course or topic being taught or investigated. The school of Engineering implements different methods and styles of teaching and learning and assessment to ensure the successful achievement of the learning outcomes of its programmes, that includes:
  • Ordinary classroom lectures
