Electrical Engineering

Many of the products and services utilized all over the world are based on the work of electrical engineers. The availability of electric power for domestic and industrial use, the extensive, fast and reliable communications, and the large computational capacity achieved with modern computers are only some examples of the contributions of electrical engineers to human advancement. In addition to this, contributions by electrical engineers to the development of concepts in signals and systems, communications, simulation, analysis and control are applied in areas such as economics, management, psychology, and physiology.

The electrical engineering program emphasizes three aspects. First, subjects in science such as mathematics, physics, and chemistry enable the student to develop the necessary analytical ability and prepare him with a sound scientific foundation. Second, subjects related to humanities and general studies ensure excellent skills and a broader outlook. Third, subjects that cover the main disciplines in electrical engineering (Energy, Control, Communications, Signal Processing, Electromagnetics, Electronics, and Digital Systems) ensure a broad knowledge of electrical engineering. Students can acquire greater depth and specialization through the choice of EE electives. These three aspects are supported with laboratories, summer training and a senior project. Laboratory experience exposes the students to the instrumentation, design, engineering practice, and construction of electrical and electronic devices and circuits. Our laboratories are equipped with state-of –the-art equipment. This is complemented by a summer employment program in which the student undergoes industrial training. Team work and design aspects are further emphasized through the senior project.
