The motto of the Department of Electrical Engineering is “Conscientious academics and honest behavior.”

Scope and Associated Career

Electrical engineering is one of the largest and most diverse technological and engineering disciplines in today’s world. Electrical engineering is the study and application of electricity, electronics and electromagnetism for the development and maintenance of electrical and electronics equipments while keeping in mind the safety, quality, economic feasibility and sustainability of these products and systems. Electrical engineering has sure come a long way. Not only has it has been one of the major driving forces behind cutting edge technology in areas such as power engineering, computer engineering, communications and mobile technologies, it has also significantly impacted several other fields

such as nanotechnology, biomedical engineering, neuroscience and biotechnology, to name a few. Some sub disciplines of electrical engineering are: electronics, digital computers, power engineering, telecommunications, control systems, RF engineering, signal processing, instrumentation, and microelectronics.

Here are the principal industry sectors that employ electrical engineers.

Electrical Power

Power engineer’s deals 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.

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 focuses 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.

Key Facts

Department of Electrical Engineering has a very well qualified, experienced, motivated and competent teaching faculty as well as supporting staff. The department has five foreign qualified PhD. faculty members and 9 have a Master’s Degree.

Teaching faculty of Department of Electrical Engineering is not only motivated by enthusiasm, they are also motivated by organization, clarity, scholarship, and good techniques of classroom conduct. During lectures, each person’s ideas and opinions are valued. Students feel safe to express their feelings and learn to respect and listen to others. Further, the mutual respect in teacher’s classroom also provides a supportive and collaborative environment. Different type of activities and projects are arranged for students to focus on shared decision-making and teamwork, as well as on community building.
