The BTech (Electronics Engineering) is offered in partnership with the Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE) Department. The programme aims to graduate professional electronic engineers who have a strong foundation in the relevant sciences and technology and who are able to contribute to society through innovation, enterprise and leadership. The programme provides students with an education that enhances and complements their knowledge and experiences, offers the requisite balance of breadth and depth for a professional electrical engineering education, and seeks to establish a solid foundation for lifelong learning throughout an electronic engineer’s career.

The programme comprises of three components – a strong core in mathematics, computing and engineering; technical competence through a minimum of breadth and depth modules; and general education. The core – which includes group projects, a product design and innovations project, and individual research and design projects – provides knowledge and skills considered essential for electronics engineers. A minimum number of breadth modules ensures that each student is exposed to many aspects of the state-of-the-art areas; in addition, students can achieve depth in one or two areas of their choice. General education modules complement the technical education through a wide array of modules in humanities, social sciences and professionalism to make our graduates educated members of the global community.

The programme is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Board (EAB) of the Institution of Engineers Singapore (IES). Via this accreditation, all signatories in the Washington Accord recognize the substantial equivalence of this programme in satisfying the academic requirements for the practice of engineering at the professional level in many countries including Canada, United States of America, United Kingdom, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Australia and others.


Objectives and Outcomes

The educational objectives of the BTech (Electronics Engineering) programme are to graduate students who have the following attributes 5 years after their graduation,

  1. Technical skills :
    are technically competent to solve complex problems in electronics engineering and can adapt effectively in a fast changing environment
  2. Critical thinking :
    are able to critically think, analyse and make decisions that give due consideration to global issues in business, ethics, society and the environment
  3. Leadership, team building :
    are able to communicate effectively, act with integrity, and have the inter-personal skills needed to engage in, lead, and nurture diverse teams
  4. Attitude :
    are committed to lifelong learning, resourceful and embrace global challenges and opportunities to make a positive impact in society.

The above objectives are achieved by a curriculum designed to graduate students who are able to:

  1. apply the knowledge of mathematics, natural science, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialisation to the solution of complex engineering problems.
  2. identify, formulate, research literature, and analyse complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering sciences.
  3. design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  4. conduct investigations of complex problems using research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.
  5. create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modelling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
  6. apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal, and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.
  7. understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for the sustainable development.
  8. apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.
  9. function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams and in multidisciplinary settings.
  10. communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
  11. demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the engineering and management principles and economic decision-making, and apply these to one's own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.
  12. recognise the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.
  13. understand the principles and applications of advanced mathematics, including probability and statistics, differential and integral calculus, linear algebra and complex variables.
