The Department of Electrical Engineering began its teaching and research activities in 1958 offering B.Sc. courses in electrical engineering and electronics. The programs for M.Sc. and Ph.D. studies in the fields of power, communications, control, and electronics engineering were respectively established later in 1984 and 1988. Currently, the Department of Electrical Engineering offers B.Sc., M.Sc., and Ph.D. courses in all areas of electrical engineering.
We seek to educate engineers who will possess the basic concepts, tools, skills, and visions necessary to maintain the technological competitiveness. This goal is achieved through a balance of required courses in three stages of studies in electrical engineering. The first stage teaches the students basic courses of mathematics and science, the second stage focuses on the fundamental techniques of analysis and design of systems, and the third stage offers some specialized areas of electrical engineering. A required one-year final project in an undergraduate study brings together the different skills and knowledge acquired during the first three years of study. The work requires the students to design and, in most cases, to build and demonstrate a prototype of their system. A series of written and oral engineering reports related to the design project must also be produced. The M.Sc. and Ph.D. students are required to complete and submit theses that must be defended successfully to be eligible for the approval of their degrees. The Department of Electrical Engineering has the following four divisions:
