The PUCP Electronic Engineer graduate is a professional capable of understanding and using basic science tools and theory (mathematics, physics and chemistry) to design, build and maintain electronic, electrical and computer-based systems, being aware of the impact of his or her role in society.
Such systems may range from physical devices to integrated circuit based board applications (hardware) and software that transform information and control devices. Electronic Engineering areas of expertise include circuits, microelectronics, electromagnetism, remote sensing, control and automation systems, power and energy systems, signal and digital image processing, radio astronomy and communications, among others.
The transforming and innovative character of electronic engineering is reflected in the primordial role it occupies in the current Information Age. Systems developed by an electronic engineer are applied on a daily basis in a wide variety of fundamental fields of society, including energy, transportation, health, telecommunications, mining, robotics, space sciences, aeronautics, manufacturing, construction, security, geo- sciences, and entertainment; through applications such as the internet of things (loT), electric mobility and artificial intelligence.
The competencies of the graduate profile are presented below:
C1. Reflect critically on learning in order to make personal, academic, and professional decisions, and to continue learning throughout life.
C2. Effectively communicates projects and research information orally, in writing and graphically to be understood by all types of audiences.
C3. Applies knowledge of science and engineering to the analysis, design, simulation, implementation, and validation of electronic, electrical, control, and computer-based systems in developing production and service activities.
C4. Develops projects by applying science and engineering knowledge and research resources to satisfy needs within realistic economic, ethical, environmental, social, health and safety constraints.
C5. Participates in multidisciplinary projects through planning, executing, and monitoring the achievement of objectives and goals, with knowledge of the impact of technology on business and social outcomes.
C6. Proposes personal or group ventures as an important part of their professional development, ethically and effectively, with emphasis on creative and innovative solutions.
C7. Employs state-of-the-art tools to install and maintain electronic, electrical, and computer-based systems used in different services and industries locally, regionally, or globally.
