Welcome Message from the Head of Department
The Department adopts the hands on approach, which is teaching by doing and provides a challenging opportunity of getting exposed to real world problems through industrial collaboration and case studies from real world problems, while also providing the necessary encouraging environment, academic guidance, and technology support. Moreover, Electronics and Telecommunication Engineers have the skills and the ability to start their own businesses where the market is booming and the opportunities are countless. We encourage and empower our students, those who have the vision, self-motivation, and courage to create their own start-up companies.
Electronics and Telecommunication Engineers are in high demand because of the rapid advancement of the electronics and telecommunication technologies and their applications in the region and around the Globe. These create continuous job opportunities for competent Engineers who are able to deal and develop these disciplines further. The broadness of the Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering allow our graduates to have a great career prospects. Typical employers (including and not limited to): telecommunication service providers, companies from the Oil & Gas industry, petrochemical companies, Bio-Medical companies, defence and security, remote sensing companies Government entities.
We strongly welcome industrial partners for research collaborations in electronics, telecommunications, control systems, and signal processing.
