The Department of Electrical Engineering which offers BSc Electrical Engineering was established in 2011 in 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 which are currently located in the main campus of University.

The academic program is designed to build a strong foundation in the fundamentals of Electrical Engineering along with specialized undergrad courses to cover the breadth of the ever expanding realm of Electrical Engineering. The department aims to develop abilities in the students for the application of the necessary mathematical tools, scientific basics and fundamental knowledge of Electrical Engineering.

The department of Electrical Engineering has an enrollment of 320 (80 seats annually) undergraduate students. The department has well equipped laboratories and classes in a newly constructed engineering block. The equipment of laboratories are upgraded accordingly as the need arises. Lecture theatres, classrooms, laboratories, faculty offices etc are all housed in the same building block.


To become a premier department renowned for its quality education, research and ingenious graduates. We revere to develop new forms of knowledge transfer to the economy and thereby contribute value to the knowledge-based economy and society. We mould youth into world-class technocrats of tomorrow who would endeavor promising headways to increase the quality of life for mankind.


To produce graduates with state-of-the-art education and relevant skills in Electrical Engineering to provide effective solution for the emerging challenges for the betterment of society.


All batches from Batch 2011 are duly accredited by Pakistan Engineering Council.


The educational objectives of the Department of Electrical Engineering is to prepare young Engineers who are fluent with the state of the art in the field of Electrical Engineering and to develop professional skills in the students that prepare them for immediate employment in Electrical Engineering.
For this purpose the following Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) are adopted for the B.Sc. Electrical Engineering program at UST Bannu. The PEOs are formulated in consultation with members of Industrial Advisory Board (IAB), Board of Studies and all the faculty members of electrical engineering department.
The graduates of this department are expected to have the following skills and capabilities after few years of their graduation;
PEO 1: Demonstrate expertise in using applied knowledge and skills of Electrical Engineering to secure careers in academia and industry.
PEO 2: Practice their profession within the code of ethics and social contribution while undertaking a task; individually or in team.
PEO 3: Exhibit leadership, managerial and communication skills and lifelong learning.
Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs): The Department of Electrical Engineering has adopted the graduate attributes defined in EAB Manual 2014 and these are supported by our defined PEOs.
