The department was established in the 1970s evolving from the single degree in Electrical Engineering to three programs; BSc Electrical Engineering, BSc Telecommunication Engineering and BSc Computer Engineering. The Department offers a variety of study fields ranging from power systems engineering, electronics, control systems, communication systems, and telecommunications amongst others
BSc Electrical Engineering deals with the study and application of electricity, electronics and electromagnetism, BSc Computer Engineering covers the physical aspects of computer and communication systems and BSc Telecommunications Engineering, which is in the field of electrical engineering, focuses on the design and oversees construction of electronic equipment to create a communication links (wired or wireless).
Each of the programs has an average annual intake of eighty (80) students. Our specialized facilities like the electronics laboratory, power systems laboratories enable students to have hands-on experience, further enhancing their skills.
The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering and Bachelor of Science in Telecommunication Engineering programmes were revised and the new curriculum is currently in its second year running.
Two new Master of Science programmes; Master of Science in Power Systems Engineering and Master of Science in Telecommunication Engineering have been approved to replace the Master of Science in Electrical Engineering and Master of Engineering in Electrical Engineering programs which will commence in the academic year of 2012/2013.
