The Relevance (Why the course is being taught)


The recent  past has been characterized by  economic liberalization leading to broadening and diversifying the demand for Telecommunication engineering graduates. 
There is an upsurge in the private sector with increased investment in Telecommunications leading to creation of new jobs that 
require specialized graduates. 
In order to satisfy this demand, the Department of Electrical Engineering has revised its curricula to address this emerging issue 
and therefore attract more students. 

The curriculum provides sound theoretical approaches to the various Telecommunication and Electronics  engineering  disciplines 
supplemented  by  hands?on laboratories and computer skills to apply the theoretical knowledge to practical engineering problems.

Additional practical training components training components such as Workshop Practice in the first year and Industrial Training in
 the recess terms of the second and third years of study introduce students to actual field practice. 

The program is conducted through coursework and examinations. At the fourth year of study, students are prepared to do
independent supervised study in the area of their choice. Students can enroll for the programme with the intention of achieving
the qualification of a Bachelor of Science in Telecommunication Engineering (BSC.TE).


The primary focus of this programme is to produce entrepreneurship?oriented graduates who are 
capable of propping up new companies, out of the prototypes that they will have developed at the 
undergraduate level. This demands that the final year projects should benchmark world class 
standards, capable of leading to Telecommunication Engineering incubations. 

Educational Objectives 

The educational objectives of this programme are to: 

(a) Produce  graduates  who  are  able  to  practice  Telecommunication  engineering  to  serve 
Uganda and the regional industries, government agencies, or national and international 
(b) Produce  graduates  with  the  necessary  background  and  technical  skills  to  work 
professionally in one or more of the following areas: telecommunication hardware and 
software  design,  computer  network  design,  telecommunication  system  design  and 
integration in wire line, mobile and satellite systems. 
(c) Prepare graduates for personal and professional success with awareness and commitment 
to their ethical and social responsibilities, both as individuals and in team environments. 
(d) Prepare graduates who are capable of entering and succeeding in an advanced degree 
program in a field such as engineering, science, or business. 

Program Outcomes 

The outcomes for the Telecommunication engineering program are: 
(a) To Understand  ? to understand fundamentals of Telecommunication hardware and software, electronicsand software, electronics, and mathematicsand software, electronics, and mathematicsand software, electronics, and mathematics, and how these are used in Telecommunication 
systems. An understanding that engineering knowledge should be applied in an ethically 
responsible manner for the good of society. 
(b) To Question  ?  to  critically  evaluate  alternate  assumptions,  approaches,  procedures, tradeoffs, and results related to engineering problems. 
(c) To  Design ? to design and implement a Telecommunication systems including devices, 
systems and networks. 
(d) To Lead ? to lead a small team of student engineers performing a laboratory exercise or design project; to participate in the various role in a team and understand how they contribute to accomplishing the task at hand. 
(e) To Communicate ? to use written and oral communications to document work and present project results
