The EE department offers both undergraduate and graduate programs. Today, the EE department hosts more than 1000 undergraduate students, 600 graduate students (both MSc and PhD), and more than 70 professors.
The 4-year undergraduate program provides a broad foundation in electrical engineering through combined classroom and laboratory work and prepares the students for their professional career, as well as for further study at the graduate level. During the first and part of the second year, students take courses in basic sciences and general engineering. Emphasis is placed on mathematics and physics, as well as programming and introductory electric circuits. The remainder of the second year, and the 1st part of the third year are dedicated to intermediate-level courses in electrical engineering. The 2nd part of the third year and the fourth year comprise advanced level courses taken from one of the areas of Communications, Electric Power Engineering, Electronics, Control Engineering, Digital Systems, and Bio-Electric Engineering. In addition, the EE students are expected to do an internship of approximately 12 weeks in the industry and to work towards a BSc thesis under supervision of a member of the academic staff in the fourth year.
bachelor degree program
Graduate courses in electrical engineering are offered in the following areas:
• Bio-Electric Engineering
• Communication systems
• Control Engineering
• Digital Systems
• Microelectronic Circuits
• Microwaves & Optics
• Nano- & Microelectronic devices
• Power systems
• Power Electronics & Electric Machines
The two year Master of Science program consists of a number of core courses, electives courses, and a master’s thesis. A minimum of seven courses are taken. The thesis work, to be carried out in the 2nd year, will be supervised by the faculty staff from one of the groups listed above.
The four year PhD program comprises a number of advanced courses followed by a qualification exam in the 2nd year. Once qualified, the students will prepare a PhD thesis proposal, and after its approval their PhD research work will start, culminating in a final thesis which will be defended before a defense committee.
