Program Description

Electrical Engineering


Electrical Engineering major is one of the most remarkable and oldest engineering programs in the world. Due to the local and regional labor market need for the electrical engineering program, it was introduced to the Faculty of Engineering in 2012. Electrical Engineering has a great importance in advancing technical development, as electrical engineers have an effective role in all development plans and their various engineering projects. Electrical engineers design, create and sustain various engineering facilities, such as electrical stations, transportation lines, and distribution networks, in addition to their active role in the design and management of various communication systems as well as engineering project management and cost analysis. Electrical engineers have several job opportunities available in various development fields, whether in government or private sectors in the local, regional, and global labor market.

The recent accreditation effort was successful and the Electrical Engineering Department has been accredited by the Engineering  Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET in 2021.
