The number of credits required for graduates to be awarded with the bachelor degree is 136 credits. Total allocation of credits according to classification of courses for the 2017/2018 academic session is as follows:
During the first year, Electrical Engineering fundamentals are taught stressing on courses of Introduction to Electrical Engineering, Programming Techniques, Circuit Theory, Circuit and Systems, Electronic Devices and Digital Electronic, besides reinforcement in Mathematics courses.
During the second year, the Electrical Engineering core modules are emphasised focusing on Electronic Circuits, Signals and Systems, Electronic Instrumentation and Measurement, Basic Power and Electric Machine, Digital Systems and Electromagnetic Field Theory.
Reinforcement on Electrical Engineering fields are intensified focus on courses of System Modeling and Analysis, Microprocessor, Communication Principle, Control System Design, Power Electronics and Drives, Power System Engineering, High Voltage Technology, and Power System Analysis in the third year.
Students are required to undergo industrial training at least for a duration of 12 weeks either in the private sector or government sector during a the ‘Short Semester’ in the third year. This is to equip future graduates with practical technical skills besides exposing them to the industrial working environment.
During the final year, students will be given options to choose their specialisation in one of the Electrical Engineering areas, namely, Control and Instrumentation Engineering. Students are required to select five (5) courses in their chosen specialisation area to expand their knowledge.
Besides, each student is required to undertake a research or design project related to his/her chosen field of specialisation in the final year. The students are required to submit a report based on their project at the end of the final semester.
