Why Study our Programme?

One of the main distinctive features of this programme is that the student will get a British award from the University of the West England, Bristol, UK, (recognized worldwide) while studying in Muscat.

What you will be studying?

At the beginning of the programme, the student will study digital and analog electronics, engineering mathematics and computer programming as well as a wide range of electronic engineering applications. As the student progresses, signal processing, micro-controllers-based systems, communication systems, control systems and digital hardware design subjects are taught. Alongside, the student will also develop professional skills in project planning, group work and communication. Throughout the programme, the student will apply the acquired knowledge through practical laboratory work using our state-of- the-art lab facilities. The student will get an inside track on the industry through factory tours and professional briefings from leading organisations. In the final year, he/she will also take an individual project module to demonstrate the knowledge gained in the programme.

Where can it take you?

Electronics and telecommunication Engineers are in great demand because of the rapid advancement of the electronics and telecommunication technologies and their applications in the region and around the Globe. These advancements create continuous job opportunities for competent Engineers who are able to deal and develop these disciplines further. The broadness of the Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering allows our graduates to have great career prospects. Typical employers (including and not limited to) are telecommunication service providers, companies from the Oil & Gas industry, petrochemical companies, Bio-Medical companies, defense and security, remote sensing companies and Government entities. Opportunities are also available in manufacturing, transport and rail, aviation and many other industries. Moreover, Electronics and Telecommunication Engineers have the skills and the ability to start their own businesses in the booming market situation and the opportunities are countless. If the student is interested in pursuing postgraduate studies after successfully completing the degree, then having a British qualification will facilitate admission to top universities in the world.
