State of the Art Facilities


Electrical and Electronics 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.


Embedded Systems Laboratory

In this lab, students get the chance to experiment with, design and build their own embedded systems printed circuit boards with WiFi connectivity. These embedded systems utilize electronics, transducers, actuators, and microcontrollers in innovative robotics and control applications. Besides, students get the opportunity to program cutting edge embedded Linux target boards such as the Rasberry Pi board and interface it with hardware to simulate and build products with advanced set of features. This whole experience prepares students for a variety of creative design projects, especially when coupled with state-of-the-art training on mobile computing technologies using the latest smartphones development platforms for iOS and Android.


Multimedia Laboratory

The Multimedia lab is equipped with modern Mac Pro computers to aid in the teaching of several Computer Engineering courses in the areas of operating systems, software engineering, mobile application development, and multimedia applications.

In the Multimedia lab, students learn to interact with different Operating Systems such as Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.


Networking Laboratory

The Networking lab features the latest networking and data communications products providing a rich environment that undergraduate and graduate student can learn in. In this lab, students get knowledge and hands on experience in networking. Besides, the lab provides the students the opportunity to learn about switches, bridges, routers, hubs and other network devices. The Networking lab also hosts professional training courses that prepare students for industry standard certifications. These certifications include Cisco Certified Entry Network Technician (CCENTâ„¢) and Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA).


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.
