Department of Electrical Engineering
Department of Electrical Engineering is the largest constituent unit of Air University in its size and scope. It has been in operation since 2002 and has graduated ten batches of students to date who are gainfully employed in various public and private sector organizations and are also pursuing graduate degrees in national and international universities. All the graduated batches have Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) accreditation.
The department has eleven modern laboratories which are equipped with the latest training aids to enhance the learning experience of the students. It has digital electronics, electronic systems, analog, digital, RF and optical communication, power electronics and electrical machines, control systems, embedded systems design, digital signal and image processing, telecommunication networks laboratory, power systems laboratory and projects laboratory. Students also have access to five computer laboratories with latest computer hardware and software for computer based courses and fast internet connection. For research purposes, students have access to IEEE digital library as well as other digital libraries with access provided by HEC.
Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)
The BEE has formulated the following PEOs for its EE Program:
- 1. Employable graduates with in depth knowledge and sound understanding of principles of Electrical Engineering with a quest for lifelong learning
- 2. Graduates demonstrating the capacity to assume social, environmental and ethical responsibility in the national and global perspective.
- 3. Graduates with capability to be effective team members and take a leadership role in research, design, innovation, implementation and operation of Electrical and related systems
- 4. Graduates who can communicate effectively with those inside and outside of Engineering Community and be able to exhibit social and professional responsibility in national and global context.
Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs)
The Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs) adopted by BEE and approved by the Academic Council (AC).
