Program Overview

The Bachelor of Science in Electronics and Communications Engineering (BS ECE), also known as Bachelor of Science in Electronics Engineering, is a five-year college program that focuses on the conceptualization, design, and development of electronic, computer and communication products, systems, services and processes. Its curriculum is built around a strong basic core of mathematics, physics, and engineering provides teaching and training activities in the classroom and in the laboratory exercises. 

While BS in Electrical Engineering deals with the general aspect of design and development of electrical equipment, such as power generators and electric motors, BS Electronics and Communication Engineering, on the other hand, focuses on the study of design and development of Electronic equipment such as semiconductors and transmitters to be used in distant communications.

Recommended Senior High School Strand

Students who want to pursue a degree in  Electronics and Communications Engineering are encouraged to take the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) strand under the Academic Track. They will learn topics relevant that will be useful in their college life. 

Subjects and Curriculum

  • Advanced Engineering Mathematics for ECE
  • Computer Methods in ECE
  • Electromagnetics
  • ECE Laws, Contracts, Ethics & Standards
  • Electronics 1 and 2
  • Communications 1 and 2
  • Logic Circuits and Switching Theory
  • Microprocessor and Microcontroller Systems
  • Feedback and Control Systems
  • Methods of Research
  • Design 1 and 2

Admission Requirements


  • The student must be a high school graduate.
However, if they were not able to graduate high school, they may opt to take the Alternative Learning System (ALS)
and pass the Philippine Educational Placement Test (PEPT) to qualify for college; the availability of courses for PEPT passers depend on the university.
  • The students must pass the College Admissions Test of the university.

Basic Requirements

  • Form 138 - High School Report Card (Original and Photocopy)
  • Recommendation letter from High school principal and guidance counselor
  • Most recent medical and dental health record
  • Copy of NSO Certified birth certificate
  • Certificate of Good moral character
  • Copy of honorable dismissal
  • Copy of high school diploma
  • (1) Latest 2”x2” ID Picture

Program Outcome

Graduates of Electronics and Communications Engineering are expected to be able to:

  • Solve complex engineering problems using the application of mathematics and science knowledge
  • Conduct engineering procedures professionally and ethically
  • Understand and explain the significance of engineering solutions globally, economically, and environmentally
  • Use up to date techniques, skills, and engineering tools for engineering procedures
  • Apply engineering and management principles both as a member and a leader in a team
  • Understand at least one specialized field of Electronics Engineering

On-The-Job Training/Internship

During the fourth year of the program, students are required to attend an On the Job Training (OJT) in a company, organization or a government agency that needs specified Electronics and Communications services.

Students are given the opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills in an actual work setting. Usually, universities require them to submit a written report on their tasks, learning experiences, and hours rendered. Their work performance will also be evaluated by their immediate managers and will be submitted to their respective OJT coordinator. The number of hours required may differ in each university.

Board Exam

To become a Licensed Electronics and Communications Engineer in the Philippines, a graduate of Civil Engineering needs to pass the Electronics Engineering Licensure Examination. The examination is conducted by the Board of Electronic Engineering under the supervision of the Professional Regulations Commission (PRC). It is scheduled twice a year in the months of April and October.

Career Opportunities

Graduates of Electronics and Communications Engineering may pursue a career path in various companies or government agencies that needs specialized Electronics and Communications services. They may apply as a telecommunications engineer, broadcast engineer, computer systems engineer, optics engineer, instrumentation and controls engineer, biomedical engineer, and satellite communications engineer.

Reviews of BS in Electronics & Communications Engineering graduates:

M. D.
◈ Studied Electronics & Communications Engineering
◈ At Universidad de Zamboanga
◈ Graduated 2005

list bulletAbout my college education: The interesting part about ECE is that it was new to me because I've never heard of such a field study before and that I get to work with electronic gadgets, which was my favorite. I enjoyed learning a lot about how electronics was used in broadcast stations like TV, radio and others; however, I didn't like math that much because it can be quite difficult to practice it. Needless to say that I studied as hard as I could in order to survive.

The challenging part was deciding whether to quit or continue after failing some extremely difficult math subjects, but with a small ounce of courage I was able to make it through. Math skills are definitely required but you also need to think out of the box sometimes when it comes to class projects that required a little creativity.

list bulletMy current job: Sadly I never got to work in the field that I studied in because I'm a freelance writer now working online. I did went through a couple of on-the-job trainings though. I also did not take the licensure examinations for ECE.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: Not based on what I do, no. But in other things like computer repair and electronics repair which is a part of my life now, I'd say yes.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: It took me 2-3 years before I got a job because there isn't a lot of hiring companies in Zamboanga City. I had to go to Manila to find a job but even then I ended up in a call center instead of a semiconductor company.

list bulletDo I recommend studying Electronics & Communications Eng: Yes I would, in terms of job opportunities and salary satisfaction.
As for me it was not as interesting as I had hoped it would be but I bet if the circumstances were different I may have enjoyed being an engineer.
