Program in brief
Students study all essential elements of electrical engineering
Year one covers engineering mathematics, electronic circuits, power supply principles, instrumentation and measurement principles and electrical machines.
Year two covers electrical installation, lighting, heating and cooling systems, power plant engineering, power supply systems, installation and maintenance of electrical machines and electrical machine drives. In many of the modules, you will have hands on in laboratories and workshops learning through experience. In the final year, you will have an opportunity to participate in a group engineering project.
You will also undergo industrial training during the recess term at the end of first year. During industrial training, you will be attached to an industry and you will be able to relate the knowledge and skills obtained from the lecture rooms, laboratories and workshops to what happens in the field.
