Electronics Engineering (Microelectronics) is the area of technology associated with the design and fabrication of electronic devices/systems or subsystems using extremely small components – integrated circuits (IC’s). 
These are extremely small electronic circuits performing intended functions built on semiconducting substrate. Advances in integrated circuits have allowed the development of the technology we are all now familiar with, such as the desktop PC and the iPhone. Microelectromechanical Systems – MEMS – which are fabricated using integrated circuit technology, allow for the automatic screen rotation of these devices.

It’s not easy to juggle job & studies but the lecturers has been helpful & accommodating. The non teaching staff have been helpful in attending to my needs too. Therefore I’m extremely happy with the education & service that Auston is offering me.
