Electronics and Computer Engineering is a course that aims to integrate two separate engineering fields to meet the joint demands made by the electronics and computer industries in today's world. This Bachelor of Philosophy in Technology (Electronics and Computer Engineering) degree programme at Technical University of Kenya combines coursework in different aspects of both fields over four years, with an emphasis on the design of computing systems.
Electronics and computers, and their joint applications, are playing an ever-increasing role in our lives as Information Communications Technology (ICT), with everything from consumer goods to space shuttles using electronic hardware (circuits) and computer software integrated together. The increased use of ICT in every aspect of our lives ensures the continued relevance of this area of engineering.
Companies that utilise integrated electronics and computer systems require engineers who possess the software skills to complement traditional electronic hardware skills. The Bachelor of Philosophy in Technology (Electronics and Computer Engineering) degree programme, at Technical University of Kenya, has been developed in response to these industry demands to develop students' hardware and software engineering skills in an integrated way and the analytical powers to apply them jointly.
Graduates of this course are ideally placed to pursue their specialism in ICT, which has wide applicability both nationally, with many indigenous technology companies and the multinational sector, and internationally.
