Mission, Objectives and Outcomes
The electronics and communications engineering (ECNG) curriculum is designed to strike a balance between theoretical and laboratory experience and to impart the fundamental and practical understanding of the principles required for a successful career in electronics and communications engineering. This requires a solid core of foundation courses in physics, mathematics, computer science and general engineering. Concentration courses in electronics and communications engineering that integrate theory and laboratory wherever possible cover electromagnetism, circuits, electronics, digital design and communications. Courses in electric machinery, classical control, computer systems, the capstone senior thesis and industrial internship are also required. Electronics and communications engineering elective courses provide seniors and advanced undergraduates the opportunity to develop an edge in advanced electronics, communication systems and computers. ECNG graduates will be prepared for a career in Egypt or abroad.
The program educational objectives of the ECNG program are:
The electronics and communications engineering program at AUC graduates an electronics and communications engineer who, within a few years of graduation, fulfills societal needs, with consideration for ethical and environmental issues and an appreciation of lifelong learning, in one or more of the following roles:
- A professional team member in a multidisciplinary environment, local or global
- A leader in electronics and communications engineering through notable achievements, promotion and professional development
- A successful member of an advanced academic or research organization
- A successful entrepreneur
The undergraduate program in Electronics and Communications Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET and Supreme Council of Universities.
