Higher Diploma in Electrical Engineering (HDE)

The Higher Diploma in Electrical Engineering aims to provide the necessary balance of theoretical studies and practical training to students for a career as technicians and technologists in Electrical Engineering.

Program info

Programme code: HDE

Level of Study:Diploma

Mode of study: 2 years evening

Department: Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Location:Kyambogo University Campus, Faculty of Engineering

 

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.

Admission to the programme shall be done in accordance with the University procedures and regulations. In addition, a person qualifies for admission on meeting the following minimum requirements. He/she should be a holder of: –

  1. a) Ordinary Diploma in Electrical Engineering, Telecommunications Engineering, Computer Engineering or equivalent.
  2. Duration of the ProgrammeThe Higher Diploma in Electrical Engineering (HDE) is a full time day, evening and weekend programme whose duration shall be four (4) semesters for all entrants. Each semester in an academic year consists of seventeen (17) weeks; fifteen (15) weeks of teaching and two (2) weeks of examination. In addition, there shall be Industrial Training in the first year during the Recess Period of 10 weeks.
