The Faculty of Engineering comprises of two departments
The world's increasing demand for energy, water and the need to minimize and control climate change, requires civil, architectural and environmental engineers to be at the forefront, using state-of-the-art technologies to ensure adequate food, water and mobility for generations to come. In civil, architectural and environmental engineering, students and faculty meet these challenges working side-by-side in the field and research facilities — developing more resiliant and sustainable infrastructure, transforming energy solutions and advancing water systems.
Every time you turn the light on at home, browse the internet, reach out to a friend via cellular phone, use your iPAD, find your way via GPS, or heat your food in a microwave oven, you are experiencing the creative work and designs achieved by electrical engineers.
Electric engineers lead the nation in the vital areas such as sustainable energy, green energy, eco-friendly alternative energy vehicles, and nanotechnology to produce smaller and faster components, resulting in computers that consume less energy. Electrical Engineering focuses on designing, testing, and manufacturing of electrical and electronic equipment, such as high definition television, embedded computer systems, solar power generators, microprocessor chips, robots and intelligent systems. Electrical engineers design devices that monitor patient vital signs, design industrial robot control, deliver electricity to our homes and workplace, advanced technology on satellite antennas, and work with fiber optics for the telecommunication industry providing wireless and secure connectivity.
