The Department of Electrical Engineering was established in 1952 as part of the Faculty of Engineering. Ever since its inception the Department has provided cutting edge education to the people of this province, and its alumni are working at prestigious positions in various national and international organizations. The Department has expanded its academic activities and offers a rich menu of academic programs at various levels. Currently the Department is offering academic programs in two main strams of Electrical Engineerig, Communications and Power Engineering.
The thrust of the Department is to prepare young Engineers who are fluent with the state of the art in the field of Electrical Engineering. The academic program is designed to build a strong foundation in the fundamentals of Electrical Engineering alongwith specilized courses to cover the breadth of the ever expanding realm of Electrical Engineering. The faculty of the Department is highly qualified and is involved in active research, both locally and in collaboration with national and international research organizations. We are committed to transforming our students into leaders in innovation and technology who can manage and shape the industry and businesses of today and tomorrow.
The Department offers a rigorous four year B.Sc degree programme, based on applied mathematics, electronics (analog and digital) and Communications along with Power Engineering subjects. The broad based theoretical analysis is backed by hectic practice sessions in well-equipped labs . Presently the Department has two disciplines, one is Electrical Communication Engineering and the other is Electrical Power Engineering.
At postgraduate level, the Department offers M.Sc. and Ph.D. programmes both in Communication and Electrical Power Engineering. The areas of active research include Biomedical Engineering, Electronic Devices and Materials, Intelligent Systems, Microelectronics and Computer Systems, Nano-engineering, Photonics Systems, Power Systems Engineering, Artificial Intelligence, Systems and Control, Telecommunications and Signal processing. This gives graduates an unparallel advantage in both technical skills and intellectual faculty to become leaders in overcoming the challenges of modern technological advancements.
Visits to various industries and research organizations are a part of education and training of graduate engineers. These visits are arranged for students to provide them with a windows of opportunity through which they get a chance to peek at actual engineering at work .
