Career opportunities

The majority of students who are completing the B.Sc. General degree tend to seek job opportunities in academia as well as in industry. Therefore, a general degree program which is focused on producing graduates with more practical knowledge will certainly be of high demand. Also, with the rapid development of technology, automation, internet of things, and robotics applications are integrated in to our lives as in telecommunication, health systems, entertainment, security, etc. Therefore, the emerging employment trends seek for graduates with knowledge in Electronics & Embedded Systems to develop automation, robotics and internet of things projects. The proposed Electronics & Embedded Systems course will be structured in a way that the students will gain knowledge in demanding fields thus opening new avenues of employment for science graduates.

Course overview

The developed curriculum of the Electronics & Embedded Systems program is structured to provide the prospective students a solid foundation of theory and practical in Physics, Electronics, Programming and Mathematics during their first two academic years. Therefore, the students to follow this undergraduate subject should select the combination containing Physics, Mathematics, and Electronics & Embedded Systems. The third year of study is emphasized more on application oriented courses thus included course units in embedded electronics, internet-of-things (IoT), robotics, instrumentation, and automation.

Course structure

The Electronics & Embedded Systems Course is designed as a three years degree course which will focus on laboratory practical sessions while covering undergraduate level Physics and Mathematics. The students are required to take course units in Electronics & Embedded Systems with a minimum cumulative credit value of 27.0 during the three years. The course units comprise of ‘compulsory’, ‘core’, non-core’, ‘optional’ subjects so that the students are provided with the Electronics & Embedded Systems stream while allowing some level of flexibility to pursue optional interest.

Course Type -a-  compulsory -c-    core -n-    optional for those not doing Electronics & Embedded Systems
-o-  optional for those doing Electronics & Embedded Systems -s-  optional for all students in the faculty
