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 BSc degree program would consist of 130 to 140 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, Control systems, Embedded Systems, Power electronics, High voltage technology, Project management and many other Key technology 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 the 4th year of the BS Electrical Engineering Technology program, students will undergo supervised industrial training, a first of its kind in Pakistan which will pave the way for the students to be directly hired by the industry. The curriculum at National Skills University fulfills the Higher Education Commission's (HEC) and National Technology Council's (NTC) guidelines (NTC).
The faculty at the Department of Electrical Engineering Technology is highly qualified from top universities of the world in a variety of disciplines with specializations in Control Systems, Embedded Systems, Communication Technology, High voltage, power systems and Renewable power systems.
Electrical Engineering Technologist can bridge the gap between scientific advancement and practical electrical devices and systems. Research in all fields of electrical engineering has produced an abundance of new knowledge in recent years. Many of these advanced scientific achievements have been unused due to the shortage of engineering technologists specifically educated to convert scientific information into practical devices and systems. Electrical engineering technologists assist electrical engineers in activities such as process control, electrical power distribution and instrumentation design. Unlike electrical engineers, engineering technologists often work in the production environment in order to address problems and fix them. Technologists determine when machines need to be replaced, and replace the parts and determine the costs of doing so. They work hand-in-hand with electrical engineers to help their ideas come to life.
To become a center of excellence in electrical engineering technology domains aligning with the current as well as future demands of industry through knowledge-based cutting-edge skills coupled with a clear outlook for entrepreneurship and commercialization.
To produce technologists possessing skills, tools and techniques necessary to solve broadly-defined electrical engineering problems. The program enables graduates to develop acumen for successfully accomplishing the tasks professionally and ethically.
Program education objectives (PEOs) are broad statements that describe what graduates are expected to attain within a few years of graduation. The following PEO’s are proposed for the graduates of Electrical Engineering Technology program
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: 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, and methodologies.
(ii) Problem Analysis: 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: An ability to design solutions for broadly defined engineering technology problems and contribute to designing systems, components, or processes to meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
(iv) Investigation: An ability to conduct investigations of broadly defined problems; locate, search, and select relevant data from codes, databases, and literature, design, and conduct experiments to provide valid conclusions.
(v) Modern Tool Usage: An ability to select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern technology and IT tools, including prediction and modeling, to broadly defined engineering technology problems, with an understanding of limitations.
(vi) Engineering Technologist and Society: 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 problems.
(vii) Environment and Sustainability: An ability to understand and evaluate the sustainability and impact of engineering technology work to solve broadly defined problems in societal and environmental contexts.
(viii) Ethics: Understand and commit to professional ethics, responsibilities and norms of engineering technology practices.
(ix) Individual and Team Work: An ability to function effectively as an individual and as a member or leader in diverse teams.
(x) Communication: An ability to communicate effectively on broadly defined engineering technology activities with specialists in the field & with society at large; comprehend, write effective reports, design documentation, make effective presentations, give and receive clear instructions.
(xi) Project Management: An ability to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of engineering technology management principles and apply these to one's work as a member or leader in a team and to manage projects in multidisciplinary environments.
(xii) Lifelong Learning: An ability to recognize the need for and engage in independent and life-long learning in specialized engineering technologies.
