Electrical Engineering covers energy development & power generation, power transmission &distribution networks, and electrical machines & power electronics. Electrical engineering also forms a multi-disciplinary application platform with the intersection of mechanical, electronic, computer and communications engineering. This platform leads to design, install, monitor, control, protect and manage the modern age electrical power systems.
Although electrical engineering education was started in 1926 within the Electromechanical Engineering Department at ITU, the Department of Electrical Engineering was established in 1944. Since then, the Department has had a very good reputation in electrical engineering education and development of related technologies. Today, the Academic Staff including 14 Professors, 6 Associate Professors, 7 Assistance Professors, 2 Lecturers and 24 Research Assistants successfully runs an undergraduate program and a postgraduate program for MSc and PhD. The department has around 848 undergraduate and 309 postgraduate students.
The mission and vision statements determine the frame of the electrical engineering education. While the program educational objectives describe the carrier and professional accomplishments that program is preparing the graduates to achieve, the program learning outcomes describe what students are expected to know and able to do by the time of their graduation. By transferring the education from the teaching mode to the learning mode, the students are encouraged to improve their ability in using their knowledge effectively.
