Electronics is the science dealing with the development and application of devices and systems involving the flow of electrons or other carriers of electric charge, in a vacuum, in gaseous media, in plasma, in semiconductors, in solid-state and/or in similar devices, including, but not limited to, applications involving optical, electromagnetic and other energy forms when transduced or converted into electronic signals. (RA 9292, 2004).
In consonance with the field of specializations of the Electronics Engineering Profession stipulated in Section 5, Article 1 of the Republic Act 9292 also known as Electronics Engineering Law, the degree program herein shall be called Bachelor Of Science In Electronics Engineering (BSECE).
BSECE Program is also governed by Commission on Higher Education (CHED) through CMO 101 s. 2017 entitled, “Policies, Standards And Guidelines For The Bachelor Of Science In Electronics Engineering (BSECE) Program Effective Academic Year (AY) 2018-2019. The CMO 101, s. 2017 sets the requirements for program description, institutional and program outcomes, sample performance indicators, program assessment and evaluation, continuous quality improvement, curriculum description and its components, curriculum map, OTBL, delivery, course syllabus and specifications, administration, faculty, laboratory and physical facilities. Other policies standards and guidelines not found in this CMO are found at CMO 86, s.2017 entitled “Policies, Standards and Guidelines for Requirements Common to All Bachelor Of Science in Engineering and Bachelor of Engineering Technology Programs. This CMO contain set of Policies, Standards and Guidelines shall apply to all higher educational institutions (HEI), both government and private, offering BS in Engineering and Bachelor of Engineering Technology programs.
The scope and nature of practice of the Electronics Engineer shall em brace and consist of any work or activity relating to the application of engineering sciences and/or principles to the investigation, analysis, synthesis, planning, design, specification, research and development, provision, procurement, marketing and sales, manufacture and production, construction and installation, tests/measurements/control, operation, repair, servicing, technical support and maintenance of electronic components, devices. products, apparatus, instruments, equipment, systems, networks, operations and processes in the fields of electronics, including communications and/or telecommunications, information and communications technology (ICT), computers and their networking and hardware/firmware/software development and applications, broadcast/broadcasting, cable and wireless television, consumer and industrial electronics, electro optics/photonics/optoelectronics, electro-magnetics, avionics, aerospace, navigational and military applications, medical electronics, robotics, cybernetics, biometrics and all other related and convergent fields; it also includes the administration, management, supervision and regulatory aspects of such works and activities; similarly included are those teaching and training activities which develop the ability to use electronic engineering fundamentals and related advanced knowledge in electronics engineering, including lecturing and teaching of technical and professional subjects given in the electronics engineering (RA9292, 2004)
