Computer Engineering Option

Programme Philosophy and Objectives

 With computers creeping into all kinds of devices, today's computer architects have their work cut out for them. Computer engineering graduates have managed to insert fully functioning computers into automobile engines, into traffic lights, and even into batteries. Computer architects helped to shepherd global consumers from using film cameras to operating sophisticated digital imaging equipment. Some of the jobs with computer engineering backgrounds are: design engineering, quality control engineering, development engineering and computer Architecture. 

The last 30 years have seen phenomenal changes in the field of Electronics and Computer Engineering. In the field of Electronics, the Nano technology and in Computer, both Software and Hardware have made giant strides. The knowledge capital requires a thorough understanding of these new techniques and novel concepts. The 21st century engineer should be able to grasp these techniques and master these concepts. 

There is a dearth qualified engineers in Africa who can confidently man the existing Computer Systems. Most of the engineers end up with no systematic training in maintaining these systems, nor modifying capability of the systems, when called upon to do so. The intricacies related to sophisticated systems is not properly understood and exploited. Hence this 4 year degree course in Electronics and Computer Engineering is deliberately aimed at meeting these shortfalls.

Instrumentation Engineering Option

Programme Philosophy and Objectives

 Instrumentation engineering is a specialized branch of electrical and electronic engineering which focuses on the principle, and operation of measuring instruments, which are used in the design and configuration of automated systems. The program aims at preparing engineers for industries with automated processes, such as chemical or manufacturing plants, with the goal of improving system productivity, reliability, safety, optimization and stability. Instrumentation engineers help in the designing, construction and maintenance of instruments and the entire instrumentation systems of an industrial undertaking. An instrumentation engineer decides the type of instruments needed for ensuring better quality and efficiency of the end product. Instrumentation Engineering provides the various job openings; Installation control engineer, refinery systems engineer, plant and systems engineer and engineering technician.

Telecommunications Engineering Option

Programme Philosophy and Objectives

Telecommunications engineering covers various areas ranging from basic circuit designing to strategic mass developments. The work of the telecommunications engineer, among other things, spans the design and oversight of installation of telecommunications equipment and facilities such as complex Electronic Switching Systems, to Copper Telephone facilities and Fiber Optics. The concentration of this programme will be of interest to those who are academically oriented as well as those with professional goals such as employment with business entities, industrial or governmental agencies, requiring advanced knowledge in telecommunications, network theory and technology.
