Program #18: Communication Systems Engineering Program

Program Description

The Communication Systems Engineering program seeks to introduce the new in the science and technology of communication systems at the educational, practical, and scientific research levels through the application of quality systems and cooperation with specialized bodies locally and internationally. This program graduates’ engineers with the ability to deal with the latest development in the fields of communication, optical, and electronic systems to meet the requirements of the market at the moral and professional levels by creating the appropriate conditions for the development of different skills of students and cooperate with specialized industrial and research bodies locally and internationally.

Career Prospects

The program aims at generating a graduate who is well trained in modern telecommunication industry as well as having a background in communication systems that enables him to fit easily within a modern telecommunication work environment and be able to identify market needs in this fast-moving segment of business. The graduate is exposed to a wide variety of courses to build an open scope to telecommunication engineering which is interdisciplinary in nature. The graduate acquires his degree by taking a balanced curriculum that is pre- dominantly concerned with communication systems on different levels and does not neglect required basic sciences needed for this field.

Program Concentrations

The program qualifies graduates to work as Electronics and telecommunication engineers. The graduate can be specialized in one of the following three concentrations (fields):

  1. Circuits and Systems.
  2. Physical and Wave Electronics.
  3. Signals and Communication Systems.

The student has to select Eight elective courses for a total of (24) Credit Hours with at least five of these courses from one of the mentioned fields.

  1. Circuits and Systems: This is the concentration for the graduate engineer to work in national and international companies concern with electronic design.
  2. Physical and Wave Electronics: This is the concentration for the graduate engineer to work in telecommunication companies for transmission field, or in research field related to microwave and optical communications.
  3. Signals and Communication Systems: This is the concentration for the graduate engineer to work in telecommunication companies in core network or in research field related to signal processing.

Agreements with another University

The program is in partnership with the University of East London (UEL), United Kingdom for a Bachelor Dual Degree. Students joining this agreement will pay an additional fee, to substitute expenses for the external Quality Audits/Moderation Boards that will take place in Egypt. The Graduates should receive two B.Sc. certificates, one from the University of East London, and one from Ain Shams University. Students are allowed to study a full year or more in London with a 10% reduction in the UK tuition fees.

Program Competences

In addition to the competences for all Engineering Programs (A-Level), the Communication Systems Engineering Program graduate must be able to (D-Level):

  • Estimate and measure the performance of communication and electronic systems under specific input excitation and evaluate its suitability for a specific application.
  • Identify needs, plan and manage resources, and gather information for solving a specific communication problem and efficiently document this solution.
  • Have the technological abilities to design and implement elements, modules, sub-systems or systems.
  • Be familiar with and utilize professional tools for communication system engineering.
  • Design, model and analyse electronic, microwave, optical, and communication systems or components for a specific application and identify the tools required to optimize this design.
  • Classify and evaluate the applications and market segments to create a specific product including the estimation of the required resources.
  • Demonstrate additional abilities related to the field of the concentration within Communication Systems Engineering as listed below.
