The Bachelor of Technology in Electronic Engineering is an industry‐oriented programme that aims to build a sound knowledge in the field of Electronic Engineering to be able to apply proven, commonly understood techniques, procedures, practices and codes to devise engineering solutions critical (including but not limited) to the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR). The programme is designed to adapt to the increasingly technology‐driven economy, by enabling students to acquire essential skills in programming, automation, artificial intelligence, Internet‐of‐Things (IoT), and innovation and entrepreneurship. The programme is focused on providing hands‐on‐skills and building capacity in emerging communication and embedded technologies. Therefore, it aims to build essential skills and cultivate innovative talents to enable graduates to build successful careers and drive innovation and entrepreneurship in the electronic engineering related fields. Further, it set the educational base required for registration as an Incorporated Engineer with the Engineering Council of Namibia (ECN), pending fulfilment of ECN post‐ qualification requirements.
Applicable to Grade 12 candidates:
In addition to meeting the NUST General Admission Requirements as spelt out in the general rules, candidates must have at least 30 points on the Engineering Evaluation Scale, counting up to five subjects that must include Mathematics, Physical Science and English; with a minimum of grade 3 in Mathematics and Physical Science at Grade 12/NSSC Higher Level or with a minimum “A” symbol in Mathematics, Physical Science and English at Grade 12/NSSC Ordinary Level. Candidates who do not meet the minimum requirements for English, but who meet all other admission requirements, may be admitted into the programme on condition that they register for the institutional English courses pre‐requisites to English for Academic Purposes, based on their NSSC Higher/ ordinary level (or equivalent) English grades. If a candidate does not have Physical Science but has Physics or a “Physics equivalent” subject, the Registrar may, upon recommendation from the relevant Head of Department and the Dean of the Faculty of Engineering, approve registration of the candidate.
Applicable to students enrolled in InSTEM programme at NUST:
Candidates must have successfully completed all courses in the Introduction to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (InSTEM) programme offered at NUST, with at least 50% in each of the following courses: Introduction to Mathematics B (ITM402S), Introduction to Physics B (ITM402S), and Introduction to Chemistry B (ITM402S). However, a score of 50% in these courses will not guarantee automatic entry into the programmes as selection will be based on merit.
Applicable to holders of a Diploma/National Diploma:
Holders of a Diploma/National Diploma (with a major in Electronic Engineering) from either the Polytechnic of Namibia/NUST or an equivalent Diploma from any other recognised institutions may be admitted into Semester seven (7) of this programme, provided they have satisfied all Semester 7 course pre‐requisites.
Applicable to holders of N5/N6 qualifications:
Candidates must have passed at least four (4) N5/N6 subjects, with at least 40% in each subject, including Mathematics and Physics equivalent subjects. Candidates will be required to register for Institutional English courses in the first and/or second semester as per the English modules table in Appendix 3, based on their NSSC Higher/Ordinary level (or their equivalent) English grades.
