Course of the Week; BSc. Electronics and Computer Engineering

This Degree course is offered in JKUAT main campus in Juja in the College of Engineering and Technology (COETEC) under the School of Electrical, Electronic and Information Engineering (SEEIE), in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. 

Electronics and Computing Engineering is a course that aims to integrate two separate engineering fields to meet the joint demands made by the electronics and computer industries in today’s world. This programme combines coursework in different aspects of both fields over five years, with an emphasis on the design of computing systems.

Electronics and computers, and their joint applications, are playing an ever-increasing role in our lives as Information Communications Technology (ICT), with everything from consumer goods to space shuttles using electronic hardware (circuits) and computer software integrated together. The increased use of ICT in every aspect of our lives ensures the continued relevance of this area of engineering.

Companies who design integrated electronics and computer systems require engineers who possess the software skills to complement traditional electronic hardware skills. The Electronic and Computing Engineering degree programme has been developed in response to these industry demands to develop students’ hardware and software engineering skills in an integrated way and the analytical powers to apply them jointly.

Graduates of this course are ideally placed to pursue their specialism in ICT, which has wide applicability both nationally, with many indigenous technology companies and the multinational sector, and internationally. With the exponential development of ICT technologies worldwide, graduates will be at the forefront of people being employed in this area.
Course Objectives
 1. Our Electronics and Computer Engineering program has been designed to prepare exemplary electronic and computer engineering technology professionals who are problem solvers in the areas of computer hardware and software design, embedded systems, computer networks and security, system integration, and electronic design automation.
2. The program will prepare graduates to work as effective employees and team members and to possess appropriate oral and written communication skill.

Computers are essential ingredients of modern engineering systems, in computer-aided design and communication networks, and in process control of modern manufacturing plants. The Electronic and Computer Engineering degree aims to give the graduates a combination of expertise from computer science, computer engineering, software engineering, electronic systems and electronic components. The graduates will possess the skills needed to design and maintain electronic and computer systems for a wide variety of engineering applications. They will also be skilled in software engineering.
