Electronics and Communications Engineering

BACHELOR OF SCIENCE

A Bachelor of Science in Electronics and Communications Engineering at AUM means that you will engage in computational programming, mathematics, natural sciences, electronics, and more in order to take you from learning and researching to experimenting and designing. After you develop a sufficient theoretical framework, you will get ample hands-on time with modules to understand the principles and processes of design and optimization.

As a student, you will work closely with all industry-standard electronic components from computing devices, electric circuits, command systems, electromagnetics to signal processing and a range of communication systems. All of these are practical cornerstones by which you will forge ahead towards a comprehensive career in this field. AUM’s industry-expert faculty members will ensure that you receive all the mentoring and guidance needed to reach your goals.

Degree Requirements

The BS in Electronics and Communications Engineering degree is a four-year degree program.

 In their first and to some extent their second years, students will focus on completion of the University’s General Education Program (42 US / 84 ECTS credits), with specialized courses in language and culture introduced. Into the third and fourth year, students will focus increasingly on topics relevant to their major. To earn a Bachelor’s degree, students must satisfactorily complete at least 124 US / 248 ECTS credits, fulfill all the requirements for the Electronics and Communications Engineering degree, and achieve a CGPA of 2.00 or higher.

The degree is designed to be completed in four years, assuming students make satisfactory progress toward the degree and do not interrupt their study. Details about leave of absence, standards of progress, and maximum time allowed to complete course can be found in the American University of Malta’s Catalog.
