ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT
The Electrical Engineering department, at Khawaja Fareed University of Engineering & Information Technology (KFUEIT), is one of the pioneer department of the university started in 2014.The Electrical Engineering department aims to equip the students with robust technical knowledge, analytical and critical thinking, and problem solving skills. This enable graduated to shine as professionals in a variety of engineering roles to handle modern life challenges.
The department supports modern teaching and research laboratories. The laboratories are equipped with the state of the art equipment that supplement the theory to meet the study objective.
The department has a foreign qualified faculty of 21 – 3 have a Ph.D. degree while 12 have a Master’s degree. The University has a firm belief in faculty development and therefore facilitates and encourages the young members to go abroad for advanced studies.
About Electrical Engineering
Electrical engineers work on components, devices and systems that use electricity and magnetism.
Since the range of such systems is very wide, we find electrical engineers in many diverse areas. For example, electrical engineers supervise the design and manufacturing of microchips that will be implanted in hospital patients; they develop large relays and generators for power stations that will provide electricity to towns and regions; they work on circuits for computers, cellular telephones, robots, trains, cars and aircraft; they design control systems for airplanes; they optimize audio-visual systems for entertainment, both for large stadiums and for private homes.
Many electrical engineers work on the design of very large systems that integrate thousands, even hundreds of thousands of components, to provide special functionality or specific services. Electrical engineers work with electricity in a variety of areas – power generating and transmitting; aircraft and automobiles; broadcasting and communications systems; lighting and wiring in buildings; machinery controls; and radar and navigation systems. They can be involved with the design of new products as well as testing equipment and solving problems.
FIELDS OF INTEREST AND EMPLOYMENT
Here are the principal industry sectors that employ electrical engineers.
Energy and Electrical Power - Power and Energy engineers deal with energy generation by a variety of methods, including turbine, hydro, fuel cell, solar, geothermal, and wind. They are also responsible for electrical power distribution from source to consumer and within manufacturing plants, offices, hospitals, and laboratories. They design devices such as electric motors, transformers, electric generators, relays, transmission lines, and batteries.
Telecommunications -Engineers are involved in all aspects of communication system design and in all major varieties of communication systems. These include broadcasting, telephony (landlines and cellular telephony), terrestrial and satellite communication, networks, and communication across the Internet.
Control – The control engineering focusing on the modelling and designing of dynamic control systems used in, for example, the flight and propulsion of airplanes and the cruise control present in many modern cars.
Computers- The computer industry serves almost all technical sectors, including aerospace, transportation, construction, telecommunications, power, medicine, consumer electronics, education, and automated manufacturing.The field offers electrical engineers with many opportunities, from the design of more efficient chips for computer circuits to the design of large clusters of interconnected computers; these clusters take advantage of scale and load analysis to use faster and more economical computing methodologies.
PROGRAM OFFERED -B.S (Electrical Engineering)
The Electrical Engineering department at KFUEIT currently offers an undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering with specialization in power and communication engineering. The bachelor’s degree is recognised by Higher Education Commission (HEC) and accreditation with Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) is under process.
Research & Development
Electrical Engineering department of KFUEIT offers a wide range of research opportunities to develop dynamic and innovative solutions to the World’s most daunting challenges. KFUEIT’s research efforts are enhanced through creative collaboration with leading research institutes and consortia around the world.
The function of the engineering profession is to manipulate materials, energy, and information, thereby creating benefit for humankind. To do this successfully, engineers must have a knowledge of nature that goes beyond mere theory- knowledge that is traditionally gained in educational laboratories.
Electrical Engineering laboratories at KFUEIT are equipped with most advanced equipment to facilitate students enhancing their understanding and skills. Qualified engineers supervise these laboratories, direct experiments and guide students about laboratory manuals.
Electrical Engineering department of KFUEIT has the following electrical engineering laboratories:
