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.
PEC ACCREDITATION STATUS
All batches from Batch 2011 are duly accredited by Pakistan Engineering Council.
AIMS AND OBJECTIVE
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.
The Department has the following well-equipped laboratories for research and practical work of students.
- Electrical Workshop Practice Laboratory
