Electronics Engineering (ECE)
About the Department
In 1995, the College of Engineering at MMSU started to expand its academic services through the offering of additional degree program to cater the needs of the locality particularly Ilocos Norte as it responds to Globalization and abrupt change of Technology. The BS Electronics and Communications Engineering program was then one among the new degree offering of the College to fulfill its mission: “To produce globally competitive engineers in accordance with set standards of excellence who shall assume active leadership in the field of engineering and technology.”
The ECE Department is manned by Eight faculty members who are licensed Engineers; with one Professional Electronics Engineer, and seven Registered Electronics Engineers. Two of whom is a holder of the degree, Master in Engineering, with four others are presently pursuing the same program. Additionally one faculty is a holder a MS-Management Engineering degree while one faculty member is pursuing MS in Energy Management. The entire faculty force of the department is members of the Institute of Electronics Engineers of the Philippines (IECEP) - Ilocos Chapter.
Since its inception in 1995, MMSU has already produced competent graduates and approximately 71.28% among them are now licensed Electronics Engineers with one from the first batch of the graduates landed second place among the topnotchers in November, 2000. Based on the performance of the graduates in the ECE board examination, MMSU was recognized as number three Top Performing School in the country in November, 2003 and maintained its position on top among schools offering the program in Northern Luzon.
In 2004, the degree was renamed to Bachelor of Science in Electronics Engineering in compliance with Republic Act No. 9292 known as “The Electronics Engineering Law of 2004”. The Bachelor of Science in Electronics Engineering (BSECE) is a four year course which aims to produce highly competent engineers in the field of electronics and communications. This program cultivates the ability of the student to develop technical skills, competence and techniques in analyzing and conceptualizing designs in electronics and communications. Graduate of the ECE program can be employed and in the following industries namely Aerospace, Broadcasting, Wires and Cables, Fiber Optic Technology, Telecommunications, Consumer goods, Manufacturing and Construction industry. They can further be employed in Academic, Health, and Research institutions.
In response to the Vision and Mission of the university the Department of ECE aims to fulfill the following objectives:
- To provide quality Electronics Engineering education that will allow the full development of the students to prepare them in their professional life as a globally competitive engineers who are conscious of their duties and responsibilities to society and environment.
The program aims to produce graduates who are:
- Competent, respectful to diversity and able to make intellectual contributions to their profession.
- Responsible Professionals with spiritual values and sense of socio-cultural and environmental awareness.
- Innovative and empowered individual to embark on a life-long career of personal and professional growth; and to pursue advanced courses at the graduate level.
