Undergraduate Electronics

Undergraduate studies in Electronics may be undertaken as a BSc in Electronics, or as a minor in a range of BSc or BAppSc degrees.

The BSc in Electronics begins with a core of Physics, Mathematics, and Computer Science papers, followed by a specialist programme in modern Electronics. The BSc emphasizes the 'systems' approach to electronics, where the concern is processing information and the circuits used to achieve that. Lecture courses are integrated with problem solving practical workshops and tutorials. Separate laboratory papers are problem-based and develop student’s practical and technical skills.
