About this course

What is the programme about?

The modern day ‘smart economy’ is powered by equally smart electronic circuits and systems. The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Electronic Engineering is a four-year engineering programme that provides graduates with a range of practical skills and competences in the areas of hardware development & validation, product software development, embedded systems and digital communications – all highly relevant skillsets for the innovative Electronic Engineer. 

The programme starts off with basic analogue & digital circuits and programming and progresses towards the development of modern day intelligent circuits and systems. It includes practical and project-based learning and professional development in well-equipped modern laboratories. The hands-on nature of this programme means that you learn more than just the theory, you learn the skills that will put you a step ahead of the competition upon graduation. The wide scope of this programme gives you many possible career paths and allows you to develop your strengths for future employment. 

Direct entry onto year 4 is possible for learners with appropriate existing level 7 qualifications. 

Third year of this programme includes an industrial placement from March to August. Industrial experience is an invaluable asset for students when deciding on a graduate position for employment. This module gives the student the opportunity to gain valuable experience while in many cases earning some money to help out towards the end of a degree programme. The placement starts in March of year three and runs until the the end of August of the same year. Students will then return to the electronics department at LIT to complete year 4 of the honours degree programme. The Electronics department has strong links with all of the relevant companies in the region, many of whom are blue chip multinational electronics companies such as Analog Devices, OnSemi, Micro-semi, EI and many more.
