MS (Electrical Engineering)

Scope

With the current power crisis and emergence of new power generation projects, the number and areas of employment for candidates with Master degree in electrical engineering has been rising in Pakistan. In addition to the traditional big organizations hiring postgraduates in electrical engineering many industries are coming up with their own power generation setups requiring electrical engineers to design, implement and maintain their power plants. Moreover, government has taken many initiatives for power generation using alternate sources like wind, coal and solar energy. Is short, requirement of highly qualified electrical engineers is on increase and our MS program will try to fill the gap between the demand and supply of electrical engineers.

Program Education Objective

The MS (Electrical Engineering) program at Department of Electrical Engineering will fulfill the vision and mission of the University by providing students with necessary theoretical knowledge and practical skills required for handling engineering research problems enabling them to:

  1. be leaders in industry or academia due to their competency in identifying, formulating and solving complex engineering problems.
  2. exhibit quest for learning and initiative by continuously broadening their abilities and enhancing their technical skills to maintain their relevance with technological change.

Program Learning Outcome

Graduates of the program are expected to have an ability to

  1. Engineering Knowledge: apply advance knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering for the solution of complex engineering problems.
  2. Problem Analysis: identify, formulate, research literature and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusion using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences.
  3. Design/Development of Solutions: design solution for complex engineering problems and design system, components or processes that meet specified need with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal and environmental consideration.
  4. Investigation: investigate complex engineering problems in a methodical way including literature survey, design and conduct of experiments.
  5. Modern Tool Usage: create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modeling, to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
  6. Lifelong Learning: recognize importance of, and pursue lifelong learning in broader context of innovation and technological developments.
