BSc Electrical Engineering Technology

BSc Electrical Engineering Technology

(4 Years Degree Program)

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.

Program Details

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.

Why BSc degree in Electrical Engineering Technology?

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.

Vision

To become the center of excellence of technology in Electrical Engineering domains to meet the current as well as the future demands of industry through knowledge-based cutting-edge skills coupled with a clear outlook for entrepreneurship and commercialization.

Mission

To produce technologists possessing skills, tools and techniques necessary to solve broadly-defined engineering problems and to design systems and processes having successful professional careers.

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

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

  • Technologists equipped with skill set suitable for creating solutions to broadly-defined engineering problems having inclination towards lifelong learning.
  • Technologists with appropriate interpersonal skills to work independently or as part of a diverse interdisciplinary team in a national or international organization.
  • Technologists exhibiting ethical values in order to meet societal needs through high moral and professional standards.
