This programme provides comprehensive knowledge of a wide range of electronic principles, practical skills in electronics and the capacity to analyse and synthesize circuits and devices. The Honours programme gives students the opportunity to specialize in certain areas of electronics, and includes training in independent project work. Graduates are qualified to embark on a career as an electronic design engineer, analyst or consultant.
