Among the most famous people of these fields are Nikola Tesla, Thomas Edison, Jack Kilby, Marcian Hoff (inventor of the microprocessor) and Martin Cooper (inventor of the mobile phone) and others. Electrical engineering degrees will equip students with knowledge of how the electrical and electronic systems work, as well as giving them the engineering skills and technical knowledge needed to design, assess and improve electrical and electronic systems. The focus of our bachelor programme in Electrical Engineering is to impart practical skills with an added emphasis on hands on experience in design and test of electrical and electronic systems.


Electrical engineers provide new solutions that support all kinds of technological systems and make them better and faster. Electrical engineers may become anything from an electrician to the designer of electrical systems for cars, ships or spaceships, and any device or product that runs on electricity. Electrical engineers also ensure proper operation of refineries and power plants and contribute to advancements in healthcare and medicine. For instance, the creative designs that help people with disabilities such as electronic prosthetic devices are designed by electrical engineers. It will not be an exaggeration to say that electrical engineers are the backbone of modern era of 5G and future mobile communication infrastructure.
