|The electronics engineering curriculum is designed to strike a balance between theoretical and laboratory experience and to impart fundamental and practical understanding of the principles required for a successful career in electronics and communications engineering. This requires a solid core of foundation courses in physics, mathematics, computer science and general engineering. Concentration courses in electronics engineering that integrate theory and laboratory wherever possible, cover electromagnetism, circuits, electronics, digital design and communications. Courses in electric machinery, classical control, computer systems, the capstone senior thesis and industrial internship are also required. Electronics engineering elective courses provide seniors and advanced undergraduates the opportunity to develop an edge in advanced electronics, communication systems and computers.
The mission of the electronics engineering program at AUC is to provide students with the highest quality education. The Electronics Engineering curriculum is designed to strike a balance between theoretical and laboratory experience and to impart fundamental and practical understanding of the principles required for a successful career in electronics and communications engineering. EENG graduates will be prepared for a career in Egypt or abroad.
The specific program objectives of the electronics engineering program at AUC are:
- Prepare graduates to meet the expectations of employers.
- Prepare graduates to pursue advanced study, if desired.
Graduates of the electronics engineering program will attain:
- an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
- an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
- an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
- an ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams
- an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
- an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
- an ability to communicate effectively
- the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
- a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
- a knowledge of contemporary issues
- an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
