OBJECTIVES OF THE PROGRAMME
The primary focus of this programme is to produce entrepreneurship‐oriented graduates who are capable of propping up new companies, out of the prototypes that they will have developed at the undergraduate level. This demands that the final year projects should benchmark world class standards, capable of leading to Telecommunication Engineering incubations.

Educational Objectives
The educational objectives of this programme are to:

  1. Produce graduates who are able to practice Telecommunication engineering to serve Uganda and the regional industries, government agencies, or national and international industries.
  2. Produce graduates with the necessary background and technical skills to work professionally in one or more of the following areas: telecommunication hardware and software design, computer network design, telecommunication system design and integration in wire line, mobile and satellite systems.
  3. Prepare graduates for personal and professional success with awareness and commitment to their ethical and social responsibilities, both as individuals and in team environments.
  4. Prepare graduates who are capable of entering and succeeding in an advanced degree program in a field such as engineering, science, or business.

GENERAL REGULATIONS
Makerere University regulations pertaining to application, registration, examinations and awards shall apply.
