Electrical Engineering Department

Welcome | Electrical Engineering Department

Humanity’s appetite for continuous improvement of quality of life through technology has reached unprecedented levels with the emergence of the AI. Since electricity is the most versatile form of energy, most technologies use electrical energy in various forms of frequencies ranging from greater than GHz to zero frequency. Electrical engineering is all about using electrons as energy carriers for various technological manipulations. Electrical engineering therefore, has become one of the most important engineering disciplines in the modern era.
