Department of ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING

Electrical Engineering (EE) is a field of engineering that generally deals with the study and application of electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism. Historically, EE technology has included power generation, transmission, and distribution while Electronics Engineering dealt with smaller electrical devices. Over time, however, EE field is developed to contain a wide range of sub-fields including electronics, machine control, digital computers, power engineering, telecommunications, control systems, radio-frequency engineering, signal processing, instrumentation, and microelectronics.

The demand for well-qualified engineers in electrical engineering is tremendous and growth in that job market is expected to continue in the foreseeable future as societies and governments become more dependent on technology in general and on electrical engineering in particular.

With emphases on creativity and innovation, the electrical engineering program prepares students to become self-learners and encourages them to pursue higher education in this rapidly advancing discipline. The program strives to work closely with the local community and to establish cooperative and research links with electrical engineering industries in the country.

A Bachelor of Science (BS) in electrical engineering is awarded upon successful completion of 138 credit hours. Students are required to take 6 credits of technical electives.
