B.Sc Physics With Electronics


B.Sc. Physics with Electronics

The programme is intended to equip the students with broad knowledge of Physics and electronics to address the challenges of the 21st century. The classroom instruction includes lectures and laboratory research. Students’ industrial work experience scheme (SIWES) is included in the syllabus to provide students with the necessary skills for employment and entrepreneurship. The first and second year comprise of introductory courses in physics, mathematics, computer science and
general studies. Foundation courses in physics that underpin an understanding of electronics and basic electronics courses are provided at the third and fourth year with entrepreneurship courses that will equip the graduates of the programme with relevant skills for job creation and innovations in the areas of applied physics and electronics
The curriculum of physics with electronics is meant to broaden the electronics engineering base of students who may wish to study pure electronics with physics without the Electrical Engineering aspects and also prepares them for higher degrees in Physics and Electronics Engineering. The programme is designed to give the students theoretical and practical skills in the areas of applied physics and electronics such as medical radiology, magnetic resonance imaging, analogue
electronics systems, digital electronics systems, etc.

The objectives of the programme are to:

  1. involve the students in intellectually stimulating and satisfying experience of learning and studying;
  2. prepare the students for advanced Physics and professional fields of Electronics Engineering;
  3. prepare students with skills for self-reliance and entrepreneurship;
  4. prepare the students for postgraduate studies in either Physics or Electronics Engineering; and 5. prepare the students for research and innovation advancement in Physics and Electronics Engineering.
