BEng (Hons) in Electrical and Electronic Engineering

The field of Electrical & Electronic Engineering encompasses a very wide area of knowledge. Electrical and electronic engineers perform a range of duties from automating home and industry processes, designing of computers (hardware and software) and household appliances, regulating the electric power distribution, develop technologies for integration of renewable energy and developing embedded and control systems in high tech equipment. Expertise in electrical engineering is also sought in not so conventional areas such as operations research, finance, banking and bio-medicine. The need for better performing and more efficient technology in all aspects of our life continues to provide the impetus to push the limits of electrical and electronic engineering. Our engineers are trained to be problem solvers. They make things work better, more efficiently, faster and at a lesser cost. The challenge for an educational institution is to keep the knowledge imparted to students in the field relevant and adequate. The objective of this engineering course is to provide an up to date and a very good foundation in the various major disciplines of electrical engineering. The students are equipped with the theoretical, analytical, design and practical problem-solving aptitudes necessary towards engineering practice. Innovation, scientific rigour, ethical attitude and a sense of purpose for the benefit of society form the core values associated with the delivery of the programme. The aim of the Department is to achieve academic excellence by providing education such that graduates can assume key roles in engineering practice and applied research in industry, in the private sector and in public service. The programme has been designed to meet the competency standards prescribed by engineering bodies forming part of the Washington Accord for recognition of qualifications and international mobility of engineers. The first three years of the programme cover the fundamentals of electrical engineering. The final year allows the student to specialise in selected areas of Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
