Description of the Program
The BSEE curriculum is designed to develop engineers who have a background in mathematics, natural, physical and allied sciences. As such, the curriculum contains courses in mathematics, science and engineering fundamentals with emphasis on the development of analytical and creative abilities. It also contains language courses, social sciences and humanities. This is to ensure that the electrical engineering graduate is articulate and is able to understand the nature of his/her special role in society and the impact of his/her work on the progress of civilization.
The curriculum is designed o guarantee a certain breadth of knowledge of the Electrical Engineering disciplines through a set of core courses. It ensures depth and focus in certain disciplines through areas of specialization. It adopts the recommended track of electives which were included. The curriculum develops the basic engineering tools necessary to solve problems in the field of Electrical Engineering. This enables the graduate to achieve success in a wide range of career.
Institutional electives are considered as prescribed in order to give a certain degree of specialization so that it will develop strengths in areas where they already have a certain degree of expertise.
Emphasis is given to the basic concepts. Previously identified courses are strengthened to take into account new developments. New courses and/or topics are introduced so that the student’s knowledge of the fundamentals may be enhanced. This is to allow the student to achieve a degree of knowledge compatible with international standard.
Objectives of the Program
1. To produce quality electrical engineering graduates equipped with necessary knowledge and skills in basic engineering, planning, design, management and maintenance relating to the generation of electrical power.
2. To extend electrical engineering services such as planning, design, construction and other types of electrical engineering works to the community.
3. To strengthen linkages with various local, national and government and non-government agencies.
4. To conduct researches to generate new knowledge, which will address to community problems and contribute to its development.
5. To utilize research outputs to improve community life through extension and productive activities.
6. To undertake programs on ecology protection and preservation.
7. To inculcate ethical and desirable habits and attitudes; promote the arts and culture and develop profound sense of social awareness and nationalism.
8. To promote gender equality in the electrical engineering profession.
