DEPARTMENT OF ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONICS ENGINEERING

General Information on Undergraduate Program

GENERAL INFORMATION: The purpose of the Department of Electrical and ElectronicEngineering is to provide professional training, and at the same time to participate actively in applied andtheoretical research. It is therefore necessary for students to acquire a sound knowledge of basic sciences, suchas 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 theend of the fifth semester as to which of the several fields of Electrical and Electronic Engineering they willchoose. Successful candidates are awarded the degree of Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Electrical andElectronic Engineering at the end of the fourth year. During this period of undergraduate study students areexpected 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 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. andIntegrated M.S.-Ph.D. programs, see the Academic Rules and Regulations.

MISSION: Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department was founded with a threefold mission
in teaching, research, and public service. Based on that foundation, the mission of the Department, in all major
fields of electrical engineering, is to instill in students the attitudes, values, vision, and training that will
prepare them for lifetimes of continued learning and leadership, to develop the ability and passion to work
wisely, creatively, and effectively for the benefit of society; to generate new knowledge for the betterment of
humankind and disseminate it universally; and to generate realistic and innovative solutions for the current and
future technological needs and to play a leading role to form the van of social and scientific progress and to
provide special services when there are needs that the department is uniquely qualified to meet.
The Electrical and Electronics Engineering undergraduate program was accredited by the Engineering
Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org .
