3.4.3    Bachelor of Technology (Electronics Engineering)

The BTech (Electronics Engineering) is offered in partnership with the Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE) Department.  The programme aims to graduate professional electronic engineers who have a strong foundation in the relevant sciences and technology and who are able to contribute to society through innovation, enterprise and leadership. The programme provides students with an education that enhances and complements their knowledge and experiences, offers the requisite balance of breadth and depth for a professional electrical engineering education, and seeks to establish a solid foundation for lifelong learning throughout an electronic engineer’s career.

The programme comprises of three components – a strong core in mathematics, computing and engineering; technical competence through a minimum of breadth and depth modules; and general education. The core – which includes group projects, a product design and innovations project, and individual research and design projects – provides knowledge and skills considered essential for electronics engineers.  A minimum number of breadth modules ensures that each student is exposed to many aspects of the state-of-the-art areas; in addition, students can achieve depth in one or two areas of their choice.  General education modules complement the technical education through a wide array of modules in humanities, social sciences and professionalism to make our graduates educated members of the global community.

The programme is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Board (EAB) of the Institution of Engineers Singapore (IES).  Via this accreditation, all signatories in the Washington Accord recognize the substantial equivalence of this programme in satisfying the academic requirements for the practice of engineering at the professional level in many countries including Canada, United States of America, United Kingdom, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Australia and others.

The structure of the BTech (Electronics Engineering) programme is designed to achieve the following educational objectives to prepare engineers who will be:

  • technically competent to solve complex problems in electronics engineering and can adapt effectively in a fast changing environment;
  • able to critically think, analyse and make decisions that give due consideration to global issues in business, ethics, society and the environment;
  • able to communicate effectively, act with integrity, and have the inter-personal skills needed to engage in, lead, and nurture diverse teams; and
  • committed to lifelong learning, resourceful and embrace global challenges and opportunities to make a positive impact in society.

 

The success of the programme is assessed through the attainment of learning outcomes as follows:

  • apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering to the solution of complex engineering problems;
  • design and conduct experiments such as to analyse, interpret data and synthesise valid conclusions;
  • design a system, component, or process, and synthesise solutions to achieve desired needs;
  • identify, formulate, research through relevant literature review, and solve engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions;
  • use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice with appropriate considerations for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental constraints;
  • communicate effectively;
  • recognize the need for, and have the ability to engage in lifelong learning;
  • understand the impact of engineering solutions in a societal context and to be able to respond effectively to the needs for sustainable development;
  • function effectively within multidisciplinary teams and understand the fundamental precepts of effective project management;
  • understand professional, ethical and moral responsibility; and
  • have a good understanding of the principles and applications of advanced mathematics, including probability and statistics, differential and integral calculus, linear algebra and complex variables.
