Programme in Brief

Year 1: This year covers the foundations needed for an engineering degree including engineering mathematics, engineering drawing, communication skills, computer technology and ICT, instrumentation, electronics and electromagnetic fields. In many of the modules, you will have hands on in laboratories and workshops learning through experience.

Year 2:This year covers advanced principles in Engineering mathematics, digital circuits, design of amplifiers, computer programming, control systems, Principles of power and energy systems. You will have hands on experience in the various laboratories and workshops to supplement theory with practical.

Year 3: This year is dedicated to electrical power systems, thermodynamic principles, power plant engineering, installation and design of power systems and renewable energy technologies. You will also have the opportunity to work on an engineering project as a group.

Year 4: In this year, you will acquire knowledge and principles associated with electromechanical drives, power systems, power electronics, substation engineering, control of energy systems and power systems instrumentation. You will be able to work on a project as an individual in this final year.
