Program Description

The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering is now offering a new course called Bachelor of Computer and Communication Engineering (Hons.). It is an engineering degree similar to our other sought-after core engineering degrees. This course will set one to embark on a career in the ever dynamic telecommunication industry as well as power industry which converges with the telecommunication industry in materializing "the SMARTGRID".

Please apply online or walk in. If you're from SPM you need to do Foundation in Electrical and Electronics Engineering first for one year. If from STPM or Diploma you can go directly to the BCCE program.

The BCCE programme coalesces the fundamentals of electronics, hardware, software, and communication engineering to cater for the rapid convergence among all these technologies. By building a strong foundation in mathematics, electrical and electronics, and computing in the early part of the studies, students are then exposed to topics in computer engineering which later enable them to appreciate and understand the challenges in communication engineering.

Together with lectures, tutorials and seminar, the programme includes a significant amount of practical laboratory work which develops the student's practical design/development skills required by the high-tech companies in the computer and communication industries.

The programme is conducted in a full-time, semester basis spanning eight (8) semesters which is equivalent to 4 calendar years. During these times, students follow a series of courses (totally 127 credit hours), inclusive of a Capstone Design Project, an industrial internship and a Final Year Project. The internship takes up one short semester.

Program Structure

The programme is operated on a semester basis and consists of eight (8) semesters during which students follow a series of modules (127 credits), inclusive of a capstone project (3 credits) and a Final Year Project. The internship takes up one short semester. Lectures will be conducted using latest advances in teaching methods and electronic resources.

Career Prospect

With the increased demand in the computer and communication sectors, it is envisaged that many of the BCCE graduates will be able to pursue a wide range of careers such as design engineers, project engineers, network engineers, maintenance/operation engineers, consulting engineers, instrumentation & control engineers, electronic system engineers, communication engineers, research/test engineers or academicians. Uniten achieved an over 82% of employability rate for the year 2011 this means more than 82% of the graduates of Uniten managed to secure a job within 6 months after graduation.

Academic Advice

Each student will be assigned an adviser who will assist the student in his/her academic studies. This includes advice o a plan of study such as the selection of courses for the coming semester as well as the student's academic performance. The assigned College advisers are available throughout the academic year for consultation and advice.
