B.S. ELECTRICAL TECHNOLOGY

INTRODUCTION

BS Electrical Technology is a bachelors level four years degree program which has raised its demand in technological fields not only in Pakistan but worldwide. Ziauddin University-Faculty of Engineering Science & Technology is offering BS evening program in Electrical Technology. The highly qualified faculty, state of art laboratories, reference and digital library shall provide the enabling environment for learning.

The evening program is launched to encourage and cater the youth who discontinued their higher studies for different reasons. This program shall provide an opportunity to them so that they may pursue their higher education without scarifying their current jobs and grow more in their respective professions. The curriculum is fully aligned with HEC NCRC guidelines and ZUFEST is committed to ensuring best teaching practices both in theory and practice.

VISION

The vision of the department is:

“To be the best at serving society with the acquired skill set in the domain of Electrical Engineering and Technology”

MISSION

The mission of the department is:

“To impart quality education in electrical engineering and produce graduates that conduct research, develop technologies and contribute to the national and international scientific and socioeconomic growth”.

SCOPE & OPPORTUNITIES

  • Can work as Technologist/Technician in Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission, OGDC, and Pakistan Railways and other Government and private organizations.
  • Junior Lecturer in Technical education.

PROGRAM EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES (PEOS)

The Program Educational Objectives (PEO) of the BS in Electrical Technology program are as under:

  • To produce graduate with strong mathematical, electrical and hands-on knowledge that lead them into a successful career as an Electrical
  • To produce graduates that can demonstrate its technical and communication skills to solve electrical technology programs as an individual or team member.
  • To prepare graduates with high ethical and professional standards with an entrepreneurial spirit that have a strong impact on the socioeconomic growth of the society and nation at large.

PROGRAM LEARNING OUTCOMES (PLOs)

Program outcomes are the narrower statements that describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These relate to the knowledge, skills and attitude that the students acquire while progressing through the program. The program must demonstrate that the students have attained a certain set of knowledge, skills and behavioral traits, at least to some acceptable minimum level. Specifically, it is to be demonstrated that the students have acquired the following graduate attributes but not limited to:

PLO 1: Engineering Technology Knowledge: An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, natural science, Engineering Technology fundamentals and Engineering Technology specialization to defined and applied Engineering Technology procedures, processes, systems or methodologies.

PLO 2: Problem Analysis: An ability to Identify, formulate, research literature and analyze broadly-defined Engineering Technology problems reaching substantiated conclusions using analytical tools appropriate to the discipline or area of specialization.

PLO 3: Design/Development of Solutions: An ability to design solutions for broadly- defined Engineering Technology problems and contribute to the design of systems, components or processes to meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.

PLO 4: Investigation: An ability to conduct investigations of broadly-defined problems; locate, search and select relevant data from codes, data bases and literature, design and conduct experiments to provide valid conclusions.

PLO 5: Modern Tool Usage: An ability to Select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern technology and IT tools, including prediction and modelling, to broadly-defined Engineering Technology problems, with an understanding of the limitations.

PLO 6: The Engineering Technologist and Society: An ability to demonstrate understanding of the societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to Engineering Technology practice and solutions to broadly defined Engineering Technology problems.

PLO 7: Environment and Sustainability: An ability to understand and evaluate the sustainability and impact of Engineering Technology work in the solution of broadly defined Engineering Technology problems in societal and environmental contexts.

PLO 8: Ethics: Understand and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of Engineering Technology practice

PLO 9: Individual and Team Work: An ability to Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams.

PLO 10: Communication: An ability to communicate effectively on broadly defined Engineering Technology activities with the Engineering Technologist community and with society at large, by being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.

PLO 11: Project Management: An ability to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of Engineering Technology management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member or leader in a team and to manage projects in multidisciplinary environments.

PLO 12: Lifelong Learning: An ability to recognize the need for, and have the ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in specialist Engineering Technologies.
