The Department of Electrical Engineering came into being in 2011 at the Institute of Engineering & Computing Sciences, University of Science & Technology Bannu. In the year 2015 the University bodies decomposed the Institute of Engineering and Computing Sciences and create separate faculty "Faculty of Engineering" which comprises Department of Electrical Engineering and Department of Software Engineering and located in Main Campus, Bannu Township Bannu at the newly constructed academic block.

This Department aims at imparting quality education at undergraduate level thereby producing skilful engineers catering for societal needs of the country and abroad.

The department has the vision to become a high standard of excellence in education and research in the field of Electrical Engineering.

Electrical Engineering, one of the oldest fields of Engineering, deals with the study and application of electricity and electromagnetism. Initially this field comprised study of electricity and was largely considered to be a subfield of Physics. However, it now covers a range of topics including Power Engineering, Control Systems, Computer Systems, Electronics and Telecommunications etc.

Continuous development in Electrical Engineering has produced more reliable communication systems, smart grid for efficient management of transfer of electrical power and intelligent control techniques for use in the industry.

Electrical Engineering is a diversified field that gave birth to many Engineering disciplines over the decades; the most popular include Electrical Power, Electronics, Telecommunication and Computer Systems etc. The department currently offers Bachelor degree program in Electrical Engineering and have plan to start postgraduate levels programs in near future.

The goal of the BSc Electrical Engineering program is to equip students with a concrete foundation in scientific and mathematical knowledge and in skills appropriate for practice to prepare the students for entry-level positions as electrical engineers for the broad range of opportunities available in industrial, commercial, and governmental organizations; and also to prepare them for lifelong learning experiences either through a formal graduate program or through continuing education facilities.

It provides excellent platform for those who wish to embark on careers in the streams of Electronic, Telecommunication, Computer Systems and Power Engineering.

The curricula and syllabi of BSc program are well-planned and designed according to recommendations and guidelines of Higher Education Commission (HEC) and Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC).

The BSc Engineering program is duly accredited by the Pakistan Engineering Council and our graduates are readily accepted in the market.

The Department holds highly qualified, motivated, dedicated and professionally competent faculty who not only excel in their respective areas of specialization but also keep themselves abreast of recent developments in teaching methodologies.

The Department have own state of Art Laboratories facilities such as Analog & Digital Electronics, Telecommunication Systems, Power Systems, Electrical Machine, Control, Instrumentation and Measurements, Microwaves and Antennas, Digital Signal Processing, Computer Systems and Optical Communication .
