The main objectives of the Electrical Engineering program are to:
  1. Produce graduates with the knowledge and technical skills necessary to successfully practice electrical engineering and serve the public and/or private sectors in both national and international industries.
  2. Produce graduates equipped with the technical skills needed to identify, formulate analyze, and solve/design real-world electrical engineering problems/systems, and to think creatively.
  3. Prepare graduates for success in multidisciplinary professional settings with awareness and commitment to their ethical and social responsibilities, both as individuals and in team environments.
  4. Prepare graduates who have commitment to life-long learning, professional development and achievement of professional licensure, and who demonstrate involvement in professional activities and public service through professional societies, journals, conferences and meetings.
The following program outcomes describe competencies and skills that our students acquire by the time of graduation. Our graduates are expected to be able to:
  • Apply knowledge of mathematics, statistics, science, and engineering principles.
  • Design and conduct laboratory experiments safely, as well as to critically analyze and interpret data.
  • Design electrical components, systems or processes to meet desired specifications and imposed constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability.
  • Function in a team.
  • Identify, formulate, and solve problems encountered in the practice of electrical engineering.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of professional and ethical responsibilities of an electrical engineer and how engineering solutions impact safety, economics, ethics, politics, and societal and cultural issues.
  • Communicate effectively, orally and in writing.
  • Demonstrate understanding of the impact of electrical engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
  • Recognize the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of contemporary issues.
  • Use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for electrical engineering practice.

These courses can be chosen from set of courses in the major apart from the above courses (9 credits) and from any other program at the University for which you meet the entry requirements (9 credits). Alternatively, you can choose a Minor (6 courses) in a specialization other than English.

Electrical and Electronic Circuits Laboratory

The Electrical and Electronic Circuits Lab provides opportunities for practicing basic circuit design as well as advanced circuit analysis and testing. The Lab is equipped with standard electronic testing and measurement instruments (oscilloscopes, powers supplies, signal generators) and it is furnished with robust laboratory workbenches and networked workstations. In addition to the hardware equipment, the lab is equipped with the latest software to support Electrical and Computer Engineering practical teaching and learning such as MATLAB, NI Multisim, NI LabView, Quartus II, AVR Studio, and others. This lab also serves a major role for students involved in final year design projects.

Power Laboratory

The Power Lab houses a rich and varied set of experimental power frames. The lab facilitates conducting various experiments on power systems, which offer the students an opportunity to study the design, construction and operation characteristics of transformers and various types of AC and DC machines (motors and generators). In this Lab, students get the chance to investigate AC generators, compound DC motors, synchronous motors, induction motors and universal motors. The lab has experimental equipment required for power electronics and machine drives. Power engineering students use this lab as a platform to complete their design projects.

Control Laboratory

The equipment infrastructure of the Control Laboratory has recently been modernized. The upgrade involves the acquisition and installation of state-of-the-art equipment to be used for hands-on training on process control. The lab provides a good opportunity for students to learn various methods to measure and analyze control variables in electrical and mechanical processes. It also emphasizes the role of digital and analog controllers and integrates the concepts of transfer functions, system response, offset error, and stability into common practice.

Communications Laboratory

In the Communications Lab, students experiment with trainers especially designed to demonstrate different types of receivers and transmitters, antennas, transmission lines, fiber optics, modulators and demodulators, and other communications-related equipment and tools. Communications students utilize the lab for their final year design projects.
