Electronics and Communications Engineering
Overview
Dr. Mamdouh EL Sayed Gouda

Electronics and Communications engineers are essential to almost every industry. It is in fact difficult to imagine a modern industry which does not require the services of them. With applications that span the very small, such as nano-technology and bio-medicine, to the very large, such as the exploration of outer space and study of remote stars, electronics communications engineering have been and continue to be a corner stone in every new technical development. Communication networks, manufacturing plants, computer hardware and software developers, all depend strongly on the expertise of electronics and communications engineers.

The job of electronics and communications engineers usually involves design, feasibility studies, cost analysis studies, installation, operation, and maintenance of plants, processes, or equipment. In addition, an engineer with higher education and experience can train or educate students and other fellow engineers in his/her field of expertise. Such engineering educators are usually actively involved in research.

The focus of the electronics and communications engineering program is on teaching, community service, and research. Program faculty recognizes the need to provide the graduating engineer with the appropriate background in order to meet the challenges and large demands of a fast growing country. Courses and programs are developed accordingly. For example, junior level students are required to complete summer training at one of the local industries. Often times these students come back with ideas for their senior year graduation projects, which is also a requirement. The program offers an engineering program leading to the professional degree of B.Sc. in Electronics and Eommunications Engineering.
Qualified students can complete the program in 10 semesters (5 years). All students are required to complete the core electronics and communications engineering courses, which prepare the future engineer to have the fundamentals required by all the local industries. The students are then allowed to choose from a large number of elective courses in order to specialize in one of the four major fields offered.

Mission of the Electronics and Communications Engineering Program:

The mission of the Electronics and Communications Engineering Program is to provide high quality education that benefits our students and the country. The program will graduate well-educated electronics and communications engineers who will be successfully employed in the industry pursue, or graduate studies.
