Department of Electrical Engineering
The Electrical Engineering Department established in 2004 is one of the largest departments of WEC. The department offers BSc, MS and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering. Annually 100 students are enrolled in the undergraduate program. Currently about 30 students are enrolled in the postgraduate program. The department offers approximately 40 courses (139 Credit Hours) in undergraduate program and 8 courses along with a thesis (30 Credit Hours) in MS program. The PhD program consists of 48 credit hours of course and dissertation work consisting of 18 credit hours and 30 credit hours, respectively. The department has a vibrant research program both at faculty and post−graduate level. Faculty members and students are aggressively pursuing collaborative research with the local industrial giant, Pakistan Ordnance Factories (POF), Wah. Major research interests include Renewable Energy, Power Distribution Systems, Signal and Image Processing, Control Systems, Communication Systems and Sensor Networks.
The Department of Electrical Engineering offers its program with a mission to augment the electrical engineering education by imparting basic understanding of electrical engineering fundamentals based on a foundation of physical sciences, mathematics, computing, and technology. The program is designed to groom students for required technical as well as managerial skills for their practical life and enable them to smoothly pursue higher studies.
Graduates of the Department of Electrical Engineering are expected to possess knowledge of the fundamentals of electrical engineering with at least one specialized area. They have basic experimental, design and communication skills to effectively undertake professional activities in practical life.
The program of Electrical Engineering is designed to serve following objectives:
- Provide basic knowledge of electrical engineering principles along with the required supporting knowledge of mathematics, physical sciences, computing, and engineering fundamentals.
