The Bachelor of Science in Electronics and Communications Engineering is a high technology field bringing together rapid developments in electronics and communications such as broadcasting. Electronics and Communications Engineers design wire and wireless communications systems, develop television transmission, digital and fiber optic technologies. They enable the development of the Internet and produced cellular mobile telephone networks. They have also made possible communications satellite systems, the satellite-based global positioning system (GPS), and advanced military and commercial radar systems and multichannel digital radio and television broadcasting systems. The electronics and communication engineering program aims to prepare the graduates for professional electronics and communications engineering career including a leading role in the design, analysis and applications of electronic and communications structures and projects in the local, national and global community. Specifically, the electronics and communications engineering program aims to:

1. provide relevant and responsive electronics and communications engineering curriculum with a well-balanced general education component designed to emphasize analytical, critical, practical, social and problem solving skills needed in the practice of the profession.

2. develop the communicative ability both in written and electronic systems;

3. develop the aspiration for lifelong learning, and continuing education and keeping abreast with the developments;

4. develop the personal and professional characteristics to work effectively in multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural teams;

5. inculcate social, professional, ethical and moral responsibilities in the profession through community extension service, environmental awareness, and linkages;

6. promote the techno-preneurship potentials and the use of appropriate techniques, skills and modern engineering tools in the fields of broadcasting;

telecommunications; semiconductor device fabrication and manufacturing; electronics design; computer systems; instrumentation and telemetry; automation; mechatronics; industrial electronics; optics; and medical and biomedical electronics.

The Bachelor of Science in Electronics and Communications Engineering covers the fundamentals and advance topics relating to technologies where electronics is involved. It gives the students the insight of how electronics engineering aided the faster and better communication in terms of voice, video and data. With the balance between the basics to advance topics of electronics engineering and communications engineering, the students will have a full potential of developing their design and analysis skills as well as their intuitive skills.

With the constantly changing nature of technologies, graduates of Electronics and Communications Engineering will have their future opportunities as follows:
  • Process and Control Engineer
  • Hardware and Instrumentation Engineer
  • Sales Engineer.
  • System Developer/Engineer.
  • Design Engineer for electronics and communication system facilities and devices.
  • Transmission Engineer or Telecom Engineer.
  • Technical and Maintenance Engineer in broadcast stations.
  • Safety Engineer in electronic processing industries.
  • Satellite Engineer in space satellite systems.
  • Air-traffic controller in airports.
  • Professor / Instructor / Teacher

No communications using of electronic circuits would be possible. Cellphones, android phones, telephone, television, AM and FM station, fax machines, printer are all part of the electronic world used to convey message electronically. The ever-growing demand for electronic designs relating to telecommunications with voice, video and data, for hardware and software interface never stops. Thus, studying electronics and communications engineering will give you the ability to understand electronic circuits and the holistic point of view of how things work in terms electronics engineering. Once equipped with the fundamentals, the students can then start designing systems and developing their own designs.

PRACTICUM/ON-THE-JOB-TRAINING opportunities with the professional firms and reputable companies with fields of work related to Electronics and Communications Engineering will develop the students mindset of what is it really in working in their respective field of interest.

PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZATION AFFILIATES such as Junior Institute of Electronics and Communications Engineers of the Philippines which will give the students an overview about the professionals and their jobs in the field of ECE that they have specialized.

STUDENT ACTIVITIES inside and outside the school, like Community Extension Services, enhances the students' capabilities to interact and have fun with their colleagues and participate in the activities enriching their relationship with the community.
