Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) is a unique and extremely challenging field which focuses on practical aspects of engineering in line with the theoretical concepts. NSU has launched EET program which is one of its kind in comparison to other programs provided at any other university in the country, especially with regard to the development of employability skills. Engineering and developing is essential in any industry, particularly in the manufacturing industry in which Pakistan has a strong background. On the whole, graduate employability is becoming more difficult to find recently. This is one of the key reasons that helps explain why curricula are not put together with the expertise needed for jobs in mind. creative advertising emphasizes acquiring scientific knowledge, but offers little realistic experience.
In order to meet the skills requirements of current employment, NSU is now delivering a job-oriented curriculum. This EET degree program would place equal emphasis on theory and applied electrical knowledge, as well as acquiring industry-specific skills. This training teaches students about handling electrical engineering processes, implementing the designs, project planning and execution, both of which would benefit industry personnel in any way.
The degree would consist of 136 credit hours spread out across eight semesters. To lay a solid base, the first three years of this degree program involve key subjects such as Electrical technology, Computer programming, Instrumentation and measurement, Power electronics, High voltage technology, Project management and many other critical subjects. Since the curriculum focuses primarily on cultivating increasingly sought-after market abilities and supplying students with job-ready market competencies thus a higher employability rate is expected. In their final year, students can receive full-time Practical Training, which will familiarize them with the working world of the Industries and enable them to understand the complexities of practical work. This curriculum at National Skills University is being launched in accordance with the Higher Education Commission's (HEC) and National Technology Council's (NTC) guidelines (NTC).
The Electrical Engineering Technology program's faculty members have degrees from top foreign and national universities in a variety of disciplines with specializations in High voltage, power systems and Renewable power systems.
NSU's Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) curriculum shall prepare students to become skilled technologists capable of delivering successful solutions in the Industry and related fields. This program's graduates would be well-versed in technology, educational, and industrial problems. To achieve this goal, the Program will provide students with a solid base in the fundamental fields of EET, as well as a broad introduction to electrical engineering administration, small to large scale electrical operations, power engineering, instrumentation engineering, and project management. Aside from that, students can receive full-time extensive training in the relevant industry as a required part of the program, allowing them to graduate with job-ready skills. This will not only offer them a competitive advantage in the industry but will also enable them to advance quickly into upper management roles.
NSU has adopted National Technology Council, NTC’s student outcomes for the Electrical Engineering Technology program. The outcomes of the program to be acquired by students are:
(i) Engineering Technology Knowledge (SA1): An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, natural science, Engineering Technology fundamentals and Engineering Technology specialization to defined and applied Engineering Technology procedures, processes, systems or methodologies.
(ii) Problem Analysis (SA2): An ability to Identify, formulate, research literature and analyze broadly-defined Engineering Technology problems reaching substantiated conclusions using analytical tools appropriate to the discipline or area of specialization.
(iii) Design/Development of Solutions (SA3): An ability to design solutions for broadly- defined Engineering Technology problems and contribute to the design of systems, components or processes to meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
(iv) Investigation (SA4): An ability to conduct investigations of broadly-defined problems; locate, search and select relevant data from codes, data bases and literature, design and conduct experiments to provide valid conclusions.
(v) Modern Tool Usage (SA5): An ability to Select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern technology and IT tools, including prediction and modelling, to broadly-defined Engineering Technology problems, with an understanding of the limitations.
(vi) The Engineering Technologist and Society (SA6): An ability to demonstrate understanding of the societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to Engineering Technology practice and solutions to broadly defined Engineering Technology problems.
(vii) Environment and Sustainability (SA7): An ability to understand and evaluate the sustainability and impact of Engineering Technology work in the solution of broadly defined Engineering Technology problems in societal and environmental contexts.
(viii) Ethics (SA8): Understand and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of Engineering Technology practice
(ix) Individual and Team Work (SA9): An ability to Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams.
(x) Communication (SA10): An ability to communicate effectively on broadly defined Engineering Technology activities with the Engineering Technologist community and with society at large, by being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
(xi) Project Management (SA11): An ability to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of Engineering Technology management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member or leader in a team and to manage projects in multidisciplinary environments.
(xii) Lifelong Learning (SA12): An ability to recognize the need for, and have the ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in specialist Engineering Technologies.
