Bachelor of Science in Electronics Engineering

Description

The Bachelor of Science in Electronics Engineering Program (BS ECE) of the University of Santo Tomas provides a curriculum that allows the students to have wide and deep knowledge in various fields of the Electronics Engineering discipline. The program develops undergraduate students by enabling them to contribute to technological advancement through research and innovation.

The curriculum is designed to be student-centered and is aligned to meet the Expected Learning Outcomes (ELO) set by the University. Each course in the curriculum is carefully developed based on the Program Educational Objectives (PEO) and Student Outcomes (SO) of the BS ECE Program. The ECE Curriculum provides diverse Outcome-Based Teaching and Learning (OBTL) activities that enable the students to achieve the expected level of global competence and to become Thomasian Engineers who are committed to serve the society with compassion, while being engaged in lifelong learning for continuous professional development.

The UST BS ECE Program offers three (3) specialization tracks, namely: Communications, Microelectronics, and Instrumentation and Control. The Communications track specializes in the area of network design and efficient wireless transmission of multimedia information, while the Microelectronics track specializes in the development of sensors, micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS), and VLSI devices. Finally, the Instrumentation track specializes in the area of Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, and Industrial Automation.
