The Bachelor of Science in Electronics Engineering (BSECE) is a program that deals with the development and application of devices and systems involving the flow of electrons or other carriers of electric charge, in a vacuum, in gaseous media, in plasma, in semiconductors, in solid-state and/or in similar devices, including, but not limited to, applications involving optical, electromagnetic and other energy forms when transduced or converted into electronic signals.
The ECE curriculum consists of a total of 182 units (lecture and laboratory), which can be completed in four (4) years by a full-time student on a trimestral basis. The first four (4) terms focus on building the foundation of engineering mathematics and sciences. Professional courses start by 5th term, which focus on training the students with the general skills and expertise needed of an ECE graduate such us Electronic Devices and Circuits, Signal Spectra and Signal Processing, Engineering Data Analysis, Principles of Communications System, Logic Circuits and Design, Electronic Circuits Analysis and Design, Microprocessor & Microcontroller Systems and Design, Modulation and Decoding Techniques, Trans-mission Media and Antenna Systems and Feedback and Control Systems to name a few. By the 10th term, students are expected to choose their career tracks. The career tracks will prepare them in the kind of job that they want to take, hence choosing the right company for On-the-job Training which happens in the final term. Career tracks is also designed to guide the students in choosing their area of concerns in the culminating research and design activities.
There are two professional tracks available:
TRACK 1: Microelectronics Engineering
TRACK 2: Instrumental and Control Engineering
The curriculum also give much importance in preparing the students in their research and design culmination by equipping them with statistical knowledge, and skills and tools in data analysis. Design thinking process is also given importance in the Technopreneurship class. These are taken prior their research methods and capstone design project courses.
General education courses are also embedded in the curriculum to enhance the knowledge and skills of the students in communications, literature and arts, ethics, and contemporary issues.

Aerospace Engineers. Aerospace engineers design primarily aircraft, spacecraft, satellites, and missiles. In addition, they create and test prototypes to make sure that they function according to design.
Engineering Managers. Architectural and engineering managers plan, direct, and coordinate activities in architectural and engineering companies.
Biomedical Engineers. Biomedical engineers combine engineering principles with medical sciences to design and create equipment, devices, computer systems, and software used in healthcare.
Network and Computer Systems Administrators. Computer networks are critical parts of almost every organization. Network and computer systems administrators are responsible for the day-to-day operation of these networks.
Sales Engineers. Sales engineers sell complex scientific and technological products or services to businesses. They must have extensive knowledge of the products’ parts and functions and must understand the scientific processes that make these products work.
Intellectual Property and Patent Law. Patent lawyers work with researchers and developers to write the patents necessary for engineers to receive the financial re-wards of their most creative work. An ECE degree is an almost required foundation for being a successful patent lawyer in the areas of electrical and computer engineering.
Research. Researchers, usually at university or corporate labs, develop the science that is the basis of tomorrow’s technologies and products.
Sales. Marketing and sales persons deliver technology products to users. To intelligently and effectively sell electrical or computer products almost requires an ECE degree.
Teaching. Good teachers ensure that the profession carries on with its valued contribution to the society. Whether at the community college or university level, it’s a re-warding career. Frequently, teaching is combined with research and consulting.
