Department of Electrical Engineering
The Department of Electrical Engineering came into being with the inception of the HITEC University in 2007. This Department aims at imparting quality education at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, thereby producing skillful engineers catering for societal needs of the country and abroad.
Electrical Engineering, one of the oldest fields of engineering, deals with the study and application of electricity and electromagnetism. Initially this field comprised study of electricity and was largely considered to be a subfield of Physics. However, it now covers a range of topics including power engineering, control systems, signal processing, electronics and telecommunications etc.
Continuous development in Electrical Engineering has produced more reliable communication systems, smart grid for efficient management of transfer of electrical power and intelligent control techniques for use in the industry.
Electrical Engineering is a diversified field that gave birth to many engineering disciplines over the decades; the most popular include electronics, telecommunication, computer systems and industrial electronics etc. The department currently offers BS, MS and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering.
The objective of undergraduate program is to equip students with a concrete foundation in scientific and mathematical knowledge and in skills appropriate for practice in the field. It provides excellent platform for those who wish to embark on careers in the streams of electronic, communication and power engineering.
The postgraduate programs consist of advanced cources in communication, signal processing and control systems etc. Students are required to opt one of these specialization areas and undertake reseach in the chosen field.
The curricula and syllabi of BS, MS and Ph.D. programs are well-planned and designed according to recommendations and guidelines of Higher Education Commission (HEC) and Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC). The BS Engineering program is duly accredited by the Pakistan Engineering Council and our graduates are readily accepted in the market.
The Department of Electrical Engineering holds highly qualified, motivated and professionally competent faculty who not only excel in their respective areas of specialization but also keep themselves abreast of recent developments in teaching methodologies.
