Without computer hardware and software, there would be no smart phones, DVD players, digital recorders and critical systems in airplane cockpits, modern cars, or computerized medical devices. As a computer engineer, your knowledge of computer architecture, digital electronics, circuits and digital communication will lead to innovations or bring about another information revolution.

Our state-of-the-art labs designed for programming in assembly language, digital systems and high-performance computing, will give you experience with the tools you will use in the field. Through labs, lectures and projects, you’ll also: Learn programming methodology to design data structures and algorithms. Learn to resolve issues of system interfaces and integration to integrate engineering solutions into biomedical and biological systems. Design Internet of Things (IoT)/cyber-physical systems to solve real world problems. Design embedded computing and communication systems for high-performance applications, such as a small, unmanned aircraft.

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

You could work in a wide range of industries including:

  • Power generation
  • Industry and power
  • Industrial and power electronics
  • Automation systems
  • Computer programming
  • Robotics
  • Health care
  • Water and energy

The bachelor programme in Electronics gives a solid base for development of electronic systems and modern data communication, both communications between small units and in wired or wireless communication systems. Important topics are electronics, data systems technology, microcontrollers, digital signal processing, data communication in wired and wireless networks, and programming. This is used in advanced communications systems and intelligent control- and surveillance systems in areas such as e-health, mechatronics and different sensor systems. Through theory, laboratory work and practical projects the student will get a solid base for further development of products and services in this exciting and increasingly important area.

On successful completion of the study programme, the student should:

Have a thorough knowledge of analogue and digital electronics, microcontroller technology, signal processing and data communication, and possess knowledge that provide a holistic system perspective on intelligent surveillance, control and communication systems.

Have knowledge of relevant standardized mobile / wireless communication systems

Have basic knowledge of mathematics, science and relevant social and business subjects

Have knowledge of the history of technology, the engineer’s role in the society and technology development and knowledge of social, environmental, ethical and economic implications of the technology, as well as relevant regulations related to the use of communication technology

Be aware of research challenges in communication technology, and scientific methods and ways of working within the field of engineering

Be able to independently update their knowledge
