Bachelor of Technology Honours Electronic Engineering

The Bachelor of Technology Honours Electronic Engineering degree is meant to produce well developed technopreneurs in measurement, instrumentation and control; computer and circuit design; software engineering; photonics; aspects of nanotechnology; metrology; communication and signal processing. The degree is premised on innovation, functional prototype construction and real-time solutions to community lifestyle challenges.

The programme’s operational desire is to inculcate technopreneural skills and habits in the application of electronic engineering to industrial growth and development.

The educational mission of the programme is to train technopreneurs in electronic engineering. In pursuit of this mission, the curriculum emphasises the principles and applications of modern electronic engineering to fully enhance technical cognition while developing the ability to put knowledge into practice for the benefit of all mankind.


  • To build an understanding of the mathematical and scientific principles that constitute the foundation of electronic engineering.
  • To develop an understanding of contemporary electronic engineering systems and technologies through a rigorous study of the appropriate theories and practices.
  • To model and analyse the dynamics of a wide range of electronic technological systems.
  • To develop abilities of creativity and innovativeness as an approach to problem solving through multidisciplinary networking and teamwork.
  • To instil habits of good workmanship, sound engineering traits and ethics that govern and improve community lifestyles.
  • To design, test and troubleshoot advanced electronic devices and systems.
