Department of Communication Engineering (JEP)

Department of Communication Engineering (JEP) is one of the five departments in the Faculty of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. The main objective for the establishment of this department is to produce creative and competitive graduates in the field of Electronic Engineering and support the Communication Elective Courses through giving them exposures and opportunities in a very conducive educational environment in order to fulfill the need of Malaysia’s modern industries such as Telecommunications. The Department is divided into three fields of interest, namely :

(1) RF Engineering and Electromagnetic,
(2) Communication Systems, and
(3) Data and Digital Communication.


These three areas cover a broad spectrum of communications engineering field, which are RF & Microwave Engineering, Antenna Propagation, Electromagnetic Compatibility, Optical Communication, Wireless & Mobile Communication, Ionosphere Propagation, Satellite Communication, Digital Signal Processing, Data Communication, and Digital Communications. The Department offers Bachelor, Master (Taught & Research), and PhD (Research) degrees.


The strength of this Department is supported by an excellence centre, Research Center for Applied Electromagnetics (EMCenter), a research centre, Wireless and Radio Science Centre (WARAS), a focus research group Optical Communication and Network (OpCon), and nine focused laboratories that serve the needs of the academic teaching and learning process as well as the ever expanding research activities among staffs and students.  Most of the laboratories are well equipped with relevant and state-of-the-art equipments, which comply with the requirements from the Ministry of Higher Education and also the standards associated with the research in the areas of communication engineering. The Department is destined to make every effort in achieving ultimate academic excellence in telecommunication researches and aims to provide the highest professional teaching environment for students.
