Would there be a comma after 'Electronics' in the following sentence:
"Over the last two years in Electronics I made a system,a circuit and a software"
Thank you

Not necessary.

You do however need a space after "system,"

I'm also wondering what "a software" is. Perhaps you should rephrase that to "I made a system, a circuit and software" or "and a software programme"

You're overthinking things.

Anyway, haven't you heard, plagiarism is all the rage these days

On a side note, electronics isn't a proper noun and doesn't need to start with a capital letter.

If naming the qualification as you have there, then it does need a capital letter. However if saying 'In electronics...' it doesn't need one

If you wish to use capitalisations; hyphens; and the Oxford comma, you need to be consistent throughout your Personal Statement. Of course there are proper ways to do it, but don't change your mind half way through.
