Edith Cowan University ECU

Bachelor of Engineering (Electronics and Communications) Honours

Edith Cowan University ECU

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00279B

This course combines the fundamental engineering disciplines of electronic and communication systems. It provides graduates with skills in all aspects of analog and digital circuit design, as well as communication systems and communications networks development. The course concentrates on the engineering principles required to analyse and solve problems related to the design and implementation of electronic and communication systems. Graduates will be conversant in the fundamental engineering sciences, electronic circuits and systems, digital signal processing, radio communications, fibre optic and microwave communications, computer networking, and cellular and wireless networks. The program focuses on the development of knowledge and skills relevant to professional engineering practice and along with a sound theoretical base, includes strong elements of practical problem solving, team work and project development. As a result, as well as having multiple technical and transferable skill competencies, graduates will gain strong analytical skills, and have the ability to lead complex projects. The course provides a sound basis in mathematics, and in the fundamentals of electronics and engineering design principles in the first two years of study, along with relevant computer technology and programming principles. In the final two years of study, advanced topics from the electronics and communication systems engineering fields are covered to prepare students to enter their chosen profession with relevant knowledge and skills. The first year of this course includes a set of eight units that are common across all engineering honours courses. This allows students the opportunity to develop a better understanding of the various engineering disciplines on offer and the flexibility, if desired, to switch to another engineering discipline/course without penalty after the first year of study.
