The educational mission of Communications & Electronics Engineering (CEE) Program is to deliver high quality undergraduate education which combines balanced theoretical and practical topics in Communications & Electronics Engineering. Graduates of the program will have a mastery of fundamental knowledge in a variety of Communications & Electronics Engineering fields, management, and entrepreneurial skills. Graduates will be qualified to pursue successful careers in their profession or graduate studies in different areas.

The educational objectives of the program are determined to support career advancement of the graduates as they pursue their career goals. The graduates will:

  1. Design, optimize and maintain communication systems in tune with community needs and environmental concerns
  2. Be able to develop and integrate new technologies as they emerge
  3. Engage in a technical/managerial role in diverse teams
  4. Pursue entrepreneurial initiatives and launch startup companies
  5. Communicate effectively and use resources skillfully in projects development

a. An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering

b. An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data

c. An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability

d. An ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams

e. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems

f. An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility

g. An ability to communicate effectively

h. The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context

i. A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning

j. A knowledge of contemporary issues

k. An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice 

The undergraduate curriculum for the degree of Bachelor of Engineering in Communications and Electronics Engineering consists of 150 credit-hours of course work + IC3 + 30 credits transferred from Lebanese Baccalaureate or equivalent.

The Communications and Electronics Career Field encompasses the functions of installing, modifying, maintaining, repairing, and overhauling ground television, telephone and mobile equipment, ground weather equipment, air traffic control, aircraft control and warning, automatic tracking radar equipment, simulator and training systems, microwave, fixed and mobile radio equipment, space communications systems equipment, high-speed general and special purpose data processing equipment, automatic communications and cryptographic machine system, electromechanical equipment, and electronic equipment associated to all the previous mentioned systems. Most of these applications find place in several companies in Lebanon, the Arab world and the whole world in general, providing, hence, the possibility for the CEE program students to find jobs in the field they like most and almost everywhere in the world.

The Student’s Study Plan is given to every CEE student upon his/her enrollment. The CEE curriculum consists of the following components:
