M.Sc. in Electronics and Communications Engineering


Program Description

Electronics and Communications Engineering (ECE):

  • M.Sc. Program students must complete a total of at least thirty-six credit hours, within the following guidelines:
  • Course-work of eighteen credit hours, including core courses of six credit hours, elective courses of nine credit hours and a Project-Based Learning course of three credit hours.
  • Thesis – work of eighteen credit hours.
  • M.Sc. students have to pass successfully six courses with three credit hours each.


Core Courses:

  • ECE 501- Advanced Analog Integrated Circuits.
  • ECE 502- Advanced Digital and Data Communications.

Elective courses:

The elective courses are divided into two major areas; Electronics and Communications. Each course is worth three credit hours. Students select the six credit elective courses from the sets of Electronics and/or Communications elective courses. Students can also select, with the aid of their academic advisors, elective courses from other interdisciplinary graduate programs.

Electronics Elective Courses:

  • ECE 503- Advanced Digital Integrated Circuits.
  • ECE 504- Computer-Aided Verification of Electronic Circuits and Systems.
  • ECE 505- Analyses and Design of VLSI Mixed-Signal Integrated Circuits.
  • ECE 506- Advanced IC Processing and Layout.
  • ECE 507- Advanced Solid State Devices.
  • ECE 508- Advanced Integrated Circuits for Communications.
  • ECE 509- VLSI Design: System Approach.

Communications Elective Courses:

  • ECE 510- Advanced Digital Signal Processing.
  • ECE 511- Information Theory.
  • ECE 512- Error Control Coding.
  • ECE 513- Digital Image Processing.
  • ECE 514- Sensors and DSP Systems Design.
  • ECE 515- Microwave Engineering.
  • MTH 501- Advanced Mathematics and Statistics I.

Project-Based Learning Courses:

Students select one of the following three credit hours Project-Based Learning courses:

  • ECE 701- Project-Based Learning in Electronics.
  • ECE 702- Project-Based Learning in Communications.

M.Sc. Thesis:

The M.Sc. candidate should prepare and defend a Thesis based on high-valued research work in one research topic in the fields of Electronics/Communications. (ECE 801 M. Sc. Thesis).

Complementary Courses:

In addition to students holding a bachelor degree in Electronics and Communications Engineering, students holding bachelor degrees in engineering, in relevant specializations, may be admitted in the program. This may include, but not limited to:

  • Computer Engineering.
  • Biomedical Engineering.
  • Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering.

Students holding bachelor degrees in engineering, in relevant specializations, should pass successfully complementary courses of up to twelve credit hours, as determined by the Department Council and approved by the Department Council, before registration in the program.

The complementary courses are listed below; each course is worth three credit hours:

  • ECE 450- Microelectronics Circuits.
  • ECE 451- Integrated Circuit Devices.
  • ECE 452- Communications Systems Fundamentals.
  • CSE 453- Computer Networks.
  • ECE 453- Signals and Systems.
  • ECE 454- Digital Signal Processing.

The credit hours of the complementary courses are not accounted for the M.Sc. course-work requirements.

About the Department

Welcome to the Department of Electronics and Communications Engineering (ECE) at Egypt-Japan University of Science and Technology. The ECE department has two undergraduate majors, namely Electronics and Communications Engineering and Electrical Power Engineering. ECE department is providing research oriented education, based on the best Japanese engineering research and education practices, through five research laboratories, namely, Photonics Systems, Wireless Communication Systems, Digital and Embedded Systems, RF and Microwave Engineering and Image and Video Processing.

The partnership with the Graduate School of Information Science and Electrical Engineering (ISEE), Kyushu University, and the internship of our graduate students in the research laboratories of our Japanese counterpart, assure that our students are exposed to state of the art research directions in the fields of electronics and communications. A double degree program (D.D.) for Ph.D. students has been initiated between our ECE department and the ISEE School.

Please feel welcome to look through our website for a glance of our research laboratories and teaching activities.
