Scope of Electrical Engineering

Electrical Engineering is essential for all engineering disciplines and its scope is vast and unlimited. It covers the domain of electronics, computer, instrumentation, communication and control engineering. The applications of electrical engineering vary from design, commissioning, production and testing of hydroelectric, thermal and renewable as well as nuclear power plants, to the domestic and industrial consumption and appliance control.

The BS Electrical Engineering program at Ziauddin University organized with the study and applications of electricity generation, distribution, transmission and consumption for industrial and domestic usage.There are remarkable career opportunities for an Electrical Engineer especially in Pakistan as well as in other countries across the world. The current economic and industrial growth in Pakistan also increased the demands of an Electrical Engineering many folds in industries, education and research institutes.
