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. Increasingly, embedded software is a vital element in modern electronics. Electronic engineering is concerned with the design, development, manufacture and application of electronic devices, circuits and systems.

What is the Higher Certificate in Engineering in Electronic Engineering course?

The Higher Certificate in Engineering in Electronics is a two year course, which prepares students for employment and/or further education in the area of electronic engineering.

Special Features of the Course

There is a strong emphasis on practical work in the course and there is a project element in each semester where students construct and test electronic circuits. There is also hardware and software integration in some of these projects.
