The Department offers the following programs:
- BSc. Electrical Engineering
- MSc. Electrical Engineering with the following specializations:
- Electronics and Communications
- Power Systems
- MSc. Telecommunication Networks
- PhD. Electrical Engineering
The bachelor’s degree curriculum provides exposure to basic knowledge in Physics and Mathematics followed by an intensive coverage of the principles of Electrical Engineering both in classrooms and Laboratories. To stimulate their imaginations, students are assigned projects at appropriate stages. Furthermore, the curriculum is regularly revised to cater for the contemporary needs of the field of engineering. In order to reinforce the liaison between industry and academia, a final year project exhibition is held every year to provide the students with an opportunity to manifest their technical acumen. Internships in the local industry provide the students with hands on experience in industrial equipment. Moreover, breadth is added to their technical know-how through industrial tours to the leading industries in the country. Students are encouraged to join the professional associations to widen their exposure to engineering research and to provide them with an active platform for exchange and expression of their technical ideas.
