Electrical Engineering

The Department of Electrical Engineering is proud to offer excellent facilities to their students in order to develop their practical experience in the field of Electrical Engineering. The courses offered by the department include a large percentage of laboratory work. The facilities are available on a daily basis and laboratory assistants are present to assist students with their practical work.

Students enrolled for Projects I and Design Projects III are particularly advantaged, as they have PCB manufacturing facilities, CAD laboratories, projects laboratories, as well as test facilities available for the development of their projects.

The department also have three computer laboratories of which two present full network, Internet and E-Mail facilities 24 hours per day. These facilities are crucial for project research and assignments.

The facilities have been developed for hands-on training in the field of Digital Systems Engineering, Electronic Communication Systems Engineering, as well as Power Systems Engineering and are maintained by dedicated technical staff within the department.
