Bachelors in Science in Electrical Engineering (BS EE) | GIFT University

Bachelors in Science in Electrical Engineering (BS EE)

 

Program Objectives:

The primary objective of this degree program is to train young men and women in electronics and embedded systems so that they are able to analyse technical problems faced by the local industry and propose efficient and cost-effective solutions. This program also aims to prepare students to pursue advanced studies in electrical engineering at graduate level, as well as research. The vision of the program is to produce graduates who are not only technically competent, but also communicate effectively and professionally, become a productive member of a team, assume leadership and entrepreneurial roles, contribute in professional and civic service, and foster community and global responsibility considering health, safety, ethical and environmental issues.

 

Program Description:

BS Electrical Engineering program at GIFT is based on the curriculum approved by the Higher Education Commission (HEC) of Pakistan and the Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC).  The coursework is designed to help the freshmen students strengthen their fundamental concepts of essential mathematics and physics to be applied in advanced Electrical Engineering courses.  Introduction to various specialized areas in Electrical Engineering is made through breadth courses in the second year and the first half of the third year. In the second half of the third year and the final year, students study an array of advanced specialization courses to strengthen advanced concepts in the areas of their choice. GIFT Electrical Engineering program is specially designed to cater to the current global and local industry demands with a special emphasis on industrial electronics and embedded systems. The Study Plan is in full compliance with the Electronic Engineering stream of the Electrical Engineering curriculum, approved by the Higher Education Commission (HEC).

Students are prepared for the highly competitive job market through courses in Communication Skills, Engineering Management, and Engineering Economics, enabling them to handle challenging work environments professionally.  These and Social Science elective courses are included in the curriculum to help students enhance their soft skills and develop well-groomed personalities.

GIFT University offers the advantage of supporting this HEC/PEC approved curriculum by well-equipped engineering and computing laboratories under the supervision of highly qualified faculty. Currently the Department of Electrical Engineering has five well-equipped labs; Circuits & Electronics Laboratory, Digital Systems Laboratory, Instrumentation & Control Laboratory, Senior Design Project Laboratory and Engineering Workshop. The equipment available in these labs is used by students in their term projects and by faculty in their research projects. Students are assigned term projects in several courses of the degree program. Furthermore, students work in these laboratories to design and assemble their electronic gadgets for competing in various national engineering projects competitions.

 

Career Opportunities:

Electrical engineering plays an important role not only in the industrial growth of a country, but also in the agriculture, healthcare and defense sectors. The primary objective of this program is to train engineers who can analyze the problems faced by the local industry and design cost-effective solutions thereof. An important aim of the Electrical Engineering degree program is to inculcate entrepreneurial zeal in its graduates, in collaboration with GIFT Business School, so that they strive to start their own companies and create jobs, instead of becoming a work force requiring directions from above to carry out their duties. Graduates of this program have good career prospects in Pakistan as well as other countries.

 

Admissions/Eligibility Criteria:

The following two requirements must be fulfilled for admission application to be accepted.

 
  1. Matric and Intermediate or equivalent with a minimum of 60% marks.
  2. The prospective students will have to appear in a written admission test.
  3. Only those who meet the minimum eligibility criteria and clear written test are recommended for admission.

Applicants fulfilling the above two requirements take GIFT University Admission Test. Selection is based on merit determined by Metric/FSc marks and performance in the admission test. Candidates awaiting result, if selected, are offered provisional admission, subject to passing the examination with the required score.
