Department of Electrical Engineering

About Department


The Department of Electrical Engineering came into being with the inception of HITEC University in 2007. The genuine commitment of its faculty and staff and their through adherence to standards of academic excellence have contributed immensely to the enviable reputation of the Department. For the last many years, our postgraduate program has become the choice of scholars pursuing MS and Ph.D. degrees. In addition to a number of master’s graduate students, the Department of Electrical Engineering has produced three Ph.D. graduates with many other enrolled in the Ph.D. program. Like our graduate program, the undergraduate program is also viewed as a benchmark for others to follow. It has gained a good reputation, and our faculty continuously strives to make it better.

The BS Electrical Engineering program has been accredited by the PEC. This program has an exceptional blend of theoretical aspect and extensive practical training to shape students into skillful professionals ready to take up real world challenges in the industry. An updated curriculum is followed, and courses are offered by highly qualified faculty with reputable accomplishments in research, academic publications, and industrial projects. The Department provides advanced lab facilities equipped with software and hardware tools to support its academic programs.

In an attempt to better serve our undergraduate students and to shorten the time between discovering a problem and getting advice on the solution, the Department has set up an “open advising” system. This counseling and support help students in their academic and administrative issues and it establishes a smooth working relationship with the Department at large. A faculty member is assigned the duty of a Class Advisor. The students are encouraged to interact with him/her as well as with the entire faculty. This system of counseling helps students to resolve their day-to-day issues. In addition, it provides an opportunity to improve their professional skills.

The initial two years (four semesters) of the program are same for all students; however, from fifth semester and onwards, elective courses are offered to make provision for the four major streams i.e.

  • Power Engineering
  • Computer Engineering
  • Electronic Engineering
  • Telecom Engineering

To support these streams, state-of-the-art laboratories along with qualified staff are available in the Department.
