Example program for VUW students [updated for 2016 Programme changes]

This example program offers a solid background in PHY communications and signal processing, with complementary skills in mathematics through Part III. Note that students wanting to enter a Signal Processing and Communications stream are strongly encouraged to take MATH 142 and MATH 151 instead of ENGR 121 and ENGR 122. This will allow for easier access to 200-level MATH courses for Part III.

ECEN specialisation requirements:

(b) ECEN 202,203,204,220,301,320, MATH 244
(c) At least 1 from COMP 261, NWEN 241,242,243, SWEN 221
(d) At least 2 from COMP 307, ECEN 302,303,310,315,330, NWEN 301,302,304, SWEN 303
(e) At least 3 from ECEN 401-440; 1 further from COMP 421, ECEN 401-480, NWEN 402,403,404, SWEN 422

Part III:

Part III in Mathematics of MATH 243, Math 251, MATH 324 is preferred as it better prepares for the 400-level ECEN courses. However less mathematically inclined students can replace the above Part III by one with a networking focus, specifically NWEN 242, 243 and 302. This will also allow one to take NWEN 404 in place of ECEN 403 or ECEN 415.
