Electronics and Communication

Electronics engineering deals with the integration of available and emerging technologies with knowledge of mathematics and natural, social and applied sciences to conceptualize, design and implement new, improved or innovative electronic, computer and communications systems, devices, goods, services and processes.

The Department

The Bachelor of Science in Electronics and Communications Engineering will provide quality education in electronics and communications engineering, to meet the emerging needs of many employers in the region. The program emphasizes learning of fundamental engineering knowledge in subjects such as signals and systems, digital logic, circuits and electronics, and theory and applications of digital communications. The graduation requirements also include an engineering seminar and a capstone senior design project. It is expected that graduates of the program will have competitive skills in the areas of computer networking, wireless communications, and satellite communications

The bachelor's degree in electronics and communications engineering is designed to prepare graduates for responsible engineering positions in design, development, research, applications, and operation in the fields of communications, control systems, digital signal processing systems, electromagnetics, digital and analog electronic circuits, physical electronics, computer-aided design and power systems. The curriculum is built around a strong basic core of mathematics, physics and engineering science.

Specific Objectives

  1. To produce ECE graduates who have acquired the following:

    • A broad education in the analysis, design, and implementation of electronics and communications engineering systems and devices.

    • An understanding of ethnical and professional responsibility.

    • An ability to conduct applied research regarding ECE solutions on industrial and societal concerns where technology is needed.

    • A strong foundation of continuous learning so they can maintain their technical competency.

    • An industry exposure via an established industry - academe linkage initiated by the college.

  2. To promote culture of research among faculty members thru intensive trainings and workshops

  3. To develop and utilize appropriate technology to help serve the needs of the university's immediate communities.

  4. To institute measures for the acquisition and maintenance of modern and high - end laboratory equipments and facilities.


The ECE curriculum is applications oriented and builds upon a background of applied science and mathematics, including the concepts and applications of calculus. Graduates are prepared to produce practical, workable, and safe solutions to technologically challenging problems. Graduates are employed in the electronics and computer industries with responsibilities such as designing, installing and operating technical systems, analyzing and (re) engineering systems that embed computer hardware and software for unique applications, developing and producing products, managing manufacturing processes, and providing customer support for technical products and systems.

BSECE students may choose to specialize in one of the following three concentrations: electronic systems, microelectronics, and telecommunications.

The electronic systems concentration is aimed at preparing persons for careers in control, electronics, instrumentation, and power systems applications. This concentration allows a student to develop a broad-based knowledge of electrical/electronic fundamentals with an applications perspective.

The microelectronics (UET) concentration combines applied electronics, monolithic and hybrid integrated circuit processing and applications, device and component fabrication, and manufacturing. The objective of this concentration is to prepare persons to assume positions in the area of microelectronics manufacturing with immediately applicable knowledge as well as to develop a strong foundation of electronic fundamentals and methods. Graduates of this concentration secure positions in processing, manufacturing operations, and application areas in industry as members of diverse scientific engineering teams.

The telecommunications concentration encompasses the fundamentals of information and signal processing, modern bandwidth-efficient digital radio analysis with RF and microwave circuits and systems. Applications include telephone pulse code modulation, cable TV, fiber optic links, and satellite transmission circuits and systems.

Electronics and Communications Engineering continue to be attractive professions that are in great demand. They have rich traditions in design, development, testing, and commercialization of cellular and information highway technology, command, control and delivery of power of high-speed machines, digital networks, microprocessors and supercomputers, of materials such as superconductors and bio-materials, and VLSI circuits for consumer and industrial electronic applications. These fields have a strong impact on wireless communications, networking, and nanotechnology emerging industries.

The ECE program at UE Caloocan is a balance of engineering science and design. The freshman and sophomore year courses are structured to lay a solid foundation for the junior and senior level design courses by the introduction of courses in hardware, software, and the engineering sciences (math, physics, and chemistry).


Design methodology and analysis techniques are stressed throughout the curriculum in the majority of the core courses required for graduation. The lecture classes are typically complemented by laboratory experiments that the student has designed, simulated and analyzed before commencing with the actual hands on construction and testing. Students are well prepared in the hardware/software design procedure when they reach the final classes of Digital Signal Processing, Control Systems, Radio Frequency circuits, ECE electives and the Senior Project Classes. Skills in hardware, software and CAE that have been emphasized in the design process throughout the upper division classes are employed in the design of advanced electronic systems in senior and special project classes. Teamwork is stressed throughout the majority of the project classes.

Students have several pattern electives to choose from in advanced software and hardware design classes. Such classes include topics in networks, embedded systems, VHDL, digital signal processing, state machine design, VLSI, control systems, communications RF circuits and artificial intelligence.

The senior project class brings together the design and analysis skills acquired throughout the required and elective curriculum. This project is a culminating experience which involves teamwork, design, report writing and oral presentation. These experiences prepare our graduates to be successful engineers with an awareness of the many challenges involved in the work place.
