The Electronic Engineering degree at the Bogotá campus is an undergraduate program of the Faculty of Engineering of the Universidad Nacional de Colombia, with a total duration of ten (10) semesters in daytime. It confers the title of Electronic Engineer. The program started its academic activities since the second semester of 1998.
The Electronic Engineering curricular program of the University has had on several occasions the best results in tests for assessing the quality of education, such as the ECAES, at the institutional and at the individual levels. It has a curriculum and activities that contribute to achieve a comprehensive education and autonomy. Their graduates perform in various fields such as medicine, education, agriculture, mining, automotive, aerospace, military, instrumental, artificial intelligence and multimedia, among others. The processes of continuous improvement, in which the institution is committed, privilege quality by facilitating the education of high-quality graduates suitable for the development of the country.

Students who have excellent capabilities, interested in the study of systems modeling, analysis, design, implementation, control and information processing, with skills for the approach and solution of computational problems, continuity in the development of academic activities and teamwork.
The Electronic Engineer of the University is capable of conceiving, designing and implementing high-quality electronic systems for applications in different fields of the national industry, thus responding to the needs of the country. Additionally, they demonstrate leadership and aptitude for teamwork, with ethical values and a sense of social responsibility.
The Electronic Engineer of the Universidad Nacional de Colombia may perform as a professional in the study, design and development of telecommunications systems, industrial automation, robotics, power and digital electronics and other technological applications that use principles of electronics for its operation. These systems are applicable in various areas such as medicine, education, agriculture, mining, automotive, aerospace and military industry, communications, instrumental, artificial intelligence and multimedia, among others.
In practice, the curriculum favors the education of professionals with three profiles derived from the profile stated in the previous paragraph. The first profile is oriented towards communications. The professional with this profile will be an engineer with skills to identify problems in the area of communications, contextualizing them and proposing appropriate solutions.
The second profile is oriented towards the area of digital electronic systems. Engineers who follow this profile will have knowledge for being part of work groups at different levels of abstraction from the physical layer to the conception of the system at a national and international level.
Finally, the third profile is oriented towards the area of analog systems and instrumentation.
To educate professionals in the field of Electronic Engineering, with a broad sense of social responsibility and the necessary skills to conceive, adapt, design, develop, implement and operate complex electronic systems that contribute to the development and growth of the country, in a business and social environment.
To foster in the students the observer, critical and objective spirit to face the changes in the social and technological environment, so that they put their knowledge at the service of the national community.
To encourage the student to innovate, research, team work, create a company, design and improve products, processes and electronic and telecommunications systems.

FREE-CHOICE COMPONENTThirty-four (34) credits corresponding to 20% of the total credits of the curriculum.
The Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering has the following research groups:
- Research Program on Acquisition and Analysis of Signals - PAAS-UN
- Research Group on Electromagnetic Compatibility - EMC-UN
- Research Group on High-Frequency Electronics and Telecommunications - CMUN
- Research group on the Colombian energy sector - GRISEC
- Electrical Machines & Drives - EM&D
All the mentioned groups are recognized by Colciencias and classified according to the ranking of this entity. The student of Electronic Engineering can join to these groups either to carry out their degree work or through as auxiliary students, since the groups sometimes require students to collaborate in their work.
Students can join not only to the groups of the department, but to all of the university. Due to the different applications of Electronic Engineering, groups from different areas of knowledge may require support in this field.
ABET ACCREDITATION PROCESS
¿What is ABET?
"ABET is the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology. ABET accredits college and university programs in the disciplines of applied and natural science, computing, engineering and engineering technology at the associate, bachelor’s and master’s degree levels. With ABET accreditation, students, employers and the society can be confident that a program meets the quality standards that produce graduates prepared to enter a global workforce."
