ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONICS ENGINEERING


Information

 

 

The purpose of the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering is to provide professional training, and at the same time to participate actively in applied and theoretical research. It is therefore necessary for students to acquire a sound knowledge of basic sciences, such as mathematics, physics and chemistry together with an understanding of economics, social sciences and humanities before specialization takes place.

 

The program is designed to encourage the development of individual initiative and resourcefulness with emphasis on responsibility and good judgment.

 

The undergraduate program is designed for students who may wish to delay their decisions until the end of the fifth semester as to which of the several fields of Electrical and Electronic Engineering they will choose. Successful candidates are awarded the degree of Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the end of the fourth year. During this period of undergraduate study students are expected to spend a minimum of 40 working days in industry over two consecutive summers.

 

The selection of the fields of specialization in the fourth year must be made under the close supervision of the Department advisors or of the Chair of the Department.

 

Research, on the other hand, is the life blood of an institution of higher education. In the Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department strong academic programs provide a background for the directed research that form a part of the M.S. and Ph.D. and Integrated M.S.-Ph.D. programs. It is the policy of the Department to encourage its members to take part in externally sponsored project works. These activities forming a mutually beneficial link between the university and industry serve not only as a stimulus for a more intensive research environment in the Department but constitute a channel of information about the present and future needs of the industry to help in the improvement of the educational programs.

 

Some of the major research activities are: Power system analysis and planning, power system control and operation, insulation, breakdown in dielectrics, H.V. measurement techniques, gaseous discharges, design of electrical machines, control of electrical machines, electrical drives, power converters, renewable energy sources, process control and instrumentation, intelligent control, adaptive control, vision, kinematics and trajectory planning of robots, artificial intelligence, pattern recognition, VLSI design, solid-state electronics, optoelectronics, MEMS, signal processing, data transmission, synchronization and equalization, coding techniques, speech processing, switching circuits, microcomputers (software and hardware), computer aided instruction, scattering and diffraction problems, antennas and radar, active and passive microwave devices and systems, biomedical instrumentation, medical imaging, acoustic imaging, pulse shaping filters, broad band matching.

 

The Electrical and Electronics Engineering undergraduate program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

 

The graduate program gives opportunities to qualified students for further education at an advanced level. The students may specialize in the fields of circuits and systems, electronics (VLSI, solid-state electronics, optoelectronics and MEMS), biomedical engineering, EMT, communications, signal processing, control systems, robotics, computer engineering, electrical machines and power electronics, power systems and high voltage.

 

The candidates fulfilling the university requirements are awarded the degree of Master of Science (M.S.) or Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Electrical and Electronics Engineering. A minimum of seven courses and a seminar on the thesis topic is required by the department for the M.S. degree. For the Ph.D. and Integrated M.S.-Ph.D. programs, see the Academic Rules and Regulations.
