Chairman's Message

The Department of Electrical Engineering was established in 1923 as a part of the Maclagan Engineering College. The Department offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in Electrical Engineering with specialization in Communications, Control, Electronics and Power. Currently, the student enrollment, including both undergraduate and graduate, is around 1300. The Department has a faculty of 34 out of which 21 are Ph.D.'s and 7 have a Master degree. Faculty members with higher qualifications teach graduate courses and supervise research.

UET is one of the premier engineering institutions in the country. Our rigorous undergraduate program provides our students with the necessary tools and training to succeed at the next level. The bachelor's curriculum inculcates Physics and Mathematics fundamentals followed by an in-depth coverage of the principles of Electrical Engineering both in classrooms and well-equipped laboratories.

The curriculum is regularly revised to adapt to the dynamically changing needs of the field of engineering. In order to reinforce the liaison between industry and academia, a senior year project exhibition is held every year to provide the students with an opportunity to demonstrate their technical acumen. Internships in the local industry provide the students with hands-on experience on industrial equipment. Moreover, breadth is added to their technical know-how through industrial tours to the leading industries in the country. Students are encouraged to join the professional associations to widen their exposure to engineering research and to provide them with an active platform for exchange and expression of their technical ideas.

The graduate courses are aimed at bringing the students abreast with the most recent developments in their fields of specialization. Research work being carried out at the Department has direct bearing on the needs of national industry. The Department also offers consultancy services and testing facilities to local manufacturers of electrical and electronics equipment. Faculty members and graduate students regularly publish (present) in national and international journals (conferences).
