Department of Electrical Engineering

Department of Electrical Engineering was established in 2008 in order to meet the short and long term requirements of industrial/ commercial organizations of Pakistan for graduates in Electrical Engineering. Subsequent to the decision of the Board of Governors for starting the discipline of Electrical Engineering, University improved its infrastructure in accordance with the Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) guidelines and developed purpose built Classrooms, Laboratories and allied facilities.

 

Electrical Engineering is one of the oldest fields of engineering. Initially, Electrical Engineering was confined to Power Generation, Transmission lines distribution and Telephony. However, due to advancement and rapid growth in technology, there is tremendous expansion in various areas of Electrical Engineering. This expansion is so large that each area is now recognized as independent discipline. These include Telecommunication Engineering, Electronic Engineering, Power Engineering, Computer Engineering, Control System Engineering and many more. However, Electrical Engineering is still considered as parent discipline to these areas. The department has to an up-to-date library, stocked with the latest reading materials and text-books for the use of the students and the faculty members.The department arranges seminars and workshops on various areas of Electrical Engineering. These seminars are delivered by faculty members and prominent scholars. Before the commencement of the program, Pakistan Engineering Council inspected the University's facilities under its Zero Visit's and gave prior permission to start degree program in Electrical Engineering. PEC through its visits accredited the following batches of the University i.e. 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 & 2013 so far.

 

Mission Statement

The mission of the Electrical Engineering Department is to produce graduates equipped with State-of-the Art education, In-depth knowledge and relevant skills to present effective socio-economical solutions and meet the future challenges.

Undergrduate Program

The undergraduate program offers a 4-years degree in "Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering" with following streams:

The degree program is covered with State-of-the Art courses designed by the Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) and in accordance with the Higher Education Commission (HEC) guidelines. Laboratory work is done with theoretical courses to illustrate important concepts and provide practical demonstration to students. The laboratories are well equipped with the related courses requirements.
The Bachelor's degree curriculum provides exposure to a wide spectrum of basic knowledge in Physics, Mathematics and Computer, followed by an intensive coverage of the principles of Electrical Engineering, both in class-rooms as well as in the laboratories.

 

Scheme of Studies

Course work for earning degree comprises theory courses, laboratory courses and project. Courses offered to the students are selected by the department from the given list of HEC/ PEC approved courses. During the 7th and 8th semesters, students carry out group projects and write project reports. The project comprises of 3 credit hours (9 contact hours per week) in each semester. Grade "I" incomplete is awarded for the project in the 7th semester, which is converted into the earned letter grade at the end of 8th semester, based on students' performance in both semesters.
