2015/2016 Vice-Chancellor’s Departmental Award for Excellence
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering’s (DECE) vision is to produce competent, bold, articulate engineering graduates and to conduct relevant and innovative research and development for the social, economic and intellectual growth of the Caribbean region. The Department is driven by high standards and its BSc in Electrical and Computer Engineering programme has been accredited by the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) for over 25 continuous years. The MASc programme has recently been accredited for the 2015 to 2019 intakes and its accreditation has been back-dated to 2012. The Department has also introduced many innovative ideas to promote learning and thinking outside the traditional curriculum. The introduction of annual summer internships with IBM, National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and Boeing in the USA, as well as involvement in robotics group activities and software competitions, have all been “life changing” events according to students. One of the most successful learning initiatives has been the Community Service Learning Project which challenges students to identify and solve issues in a local community. DECE's graduates are often described as eloquent, proficient, and knowledgeable with a sound ability to lead and apply new technologies and provide solutions; a testimony to the Department’s quality.
