Considering that Electronics and Communications Engineers (ECE) play the central role in this fast changing Information Era, the purpose of the program is to graduate engineers/researchers/scientists who, not only fall in rhythm with the pace of this change but, possess the background and knowledge of creating the change. Considering the large universal as well as local demand for qualified ECE and the fast developments in the field, the program is tailored to meet these very stringent requirements by the variety of elective courses it offers and the inclusion of new courses as needed. An equally essential issue is the quality of faculty who will implement the program; please visit the web-pages of the department at to judge the quality of the faculty and of the program by comparing with others.
