Developments in the field of Electronics Engineering during the past few decades have had a profound impact on human life as well as on industrial growth. The emergence of the field of Information Technology (IT), has been possible through the developments in the areas of communications, signal processing and digital electronics. Most of the telecom companies have provided the Short Message Service (SMS) to their subscribers. One can send and receive text/voice/picture message, email, fax and chat on-line and can even connect to Internet from remote locations. Today, it is possible to forecast weather disturbances, floods, cyclones and preventive measures can be taken to minimize the losses. Natural resources are better managed with preventive measures can be taken to minimize the losses. Natural resources are better managed with GIS/RS (Geographical Information System/Remote Sensing Systems). It is also possible to locate and trace vehicles and human beings, and even their movement can be monitored from remote location.
Advances in digital electronics has allowed remote control of nuclear power plants and even aeroplanes can be controlled from remote stations. Due to rapid advancements in the field of Electronics technology, new fields like Biomedical Engineering, Mechatronics have emerged where concepts of electronics are integral part of the foundation on which these fields rest.
NFC Institute of Engineering & Technological Training, Multan therefore decided to establish a new department of Electronics Engineering in the year 2001. The Four-year degree program of the department leads to a bachelor degree in Electronics Engineering. The courses are designed to prepare young engineers to cater for the needs of the industry or to undertake further R&D work in the related fields. Apart from general engineering courses, the students have to take courses on specialized topics such as circuit analysis, logic design, computer architecture, control systems, Micro-processors, communication systems, and digital signal processing etc.
