The Electrical Engineering programme leading to the degree of Bachelor of Electrical Engineering (Honours) has a strong focus on the preparation of engineers who can serve the needs of the electric power industry. This programme provides emphasis on the major fields of power engineering, which includes electrical machines, power systems and high voltage engineering. These are offered as compulsory course so as to cope with the rapid change of technology in power engineering.
Fundamental subjects on electrical circuit and power engineering are taught in the first two years of study. A broad background in mathematics and computing, electric circuits and systems, analogue electronic circuits and components, digital systems, instrumentations, communications, electromagnetics and control, necessary to underpin the more advanced courses given in the subsequent years. Students undergo practical training after at the semester break of third year to gain practical knowledge from electrical power industries. Final year student project enhance practical skills and the use of innovative and creative ideas.
