Engineering Science Department

As defined in the Webster's Unabridged Dictionary, "Engineering is the science by which the properties of matter and the sources of energy in nature are made useful to [humankind]". The study of Engineering Science with focus in Electronics and Communications deals with the processing of information and energy in electrical and magnetic forms involving conceptualization and formulation of the ideas, design to manufacturing to applications of many diverse electrical, electronic, and magnetic devices and systems.

The MS-CES curriculum is designed to further the working skills and practical knowledge of engineers, computer scientists and similar professionals. The firm base in mathematics, computer science and physics is augmented with a selection of engineering course options, which prepares the students for tackling real-world problems. These options include such areas as advanced analog and digital electronics, embedded systems, communications, networking and photonics.

The focus of the BSEE curriculum is Electronics and Communication. However, it has been designed to prepare students for an exciting career in designing and manufacturing of electronic systems, communications systems and networks, microprocessors and computers, microwave and lightwave communications, and, integrated circuits. The graduates of the proposed program will be well grounded in the rigorous scientific and theoretical foundations of the discipline. This will prepare them not only to have a successful career in industry in the region and beyond but also to enter and be successful in any advanced level graduate program of their choosing. The technical and liberal arts components of the curriculum provide the students with the opportunity for gaining self-development, technical competence, and awareness of economic and ethical responsibilities.

Programs offered:

  • Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering
    (Specialization in Electronics and Communications)
  • Master of Science in Computer and Engineering Science
    (Specialization in Communications and Photonics or Computer Hardware and Software Systems)
