What is Electronic Engineering?
Common electronic systems include applications like mobile phones, sound and vision systems, computer and information technology, automation and machine control, robotics and biomedical engineering. Electronic engineering is concerned with the design, development, manufacture and application of electronic devices, circuits and systems.
What is the BEng in Electronic Engineering course?
The BEng in Electronics is a one year follow-on course from the Higher Certificate, which prepares students for employment and/or further education in the area of electronic engineering.
There is a strong emphasis on project work in the course. Students design, construct and test embedded electronic applications.The BEng has a strong embedded electronic, software and instrumentation emphasis.
Example project application areas include
Robotics, Automotive Electronics, Telecommunications, Sensors and Interfacing to Mobile Phones and WWW.
|Semester 1||Semester 2|

Those who qualify for entry to this course are:
Holders of a Higher Certificate in Electronic Engineering
Holders of equivalent qualifications and/or experience, subject to interview
Graduates of the Bachelor of Electronic Engineering Degree will find work in the following areas:
Telecommunications (e.g. Nokia, Ericssons)
Microprocessor manufacture (e.g. Intel)
Field service engineering (e.g. Siemens)
Software development C/C++/JAVA
Follow on Study
"I am presently studying BEng in Electronics Engineering having previously completed a Higher Certificate, graduating with a first class honours. I am planning to continue studying the BSc (Hons) in Applied Electronics.
In WIT there is a strong influence on preparing students for employment in the engineering world. This leads to a strong understanding of the way companies work and the way projects are undertaken and completed.
I have found the lecturers to be extremely helpful, providing me with a good technical background for the course, which I then used for the group project, BENGIE.
BENGIE is a robot that students built from the base up, designing the hardware and the software for all of its functions, which me gave first hand experience in team based engineering."
