BE ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING

INTRODUCTION

Electrical Engineering organized with the study and applications of electrical and electronic systems and electricity, which include the power generation, distribution, transmission, utilization, communication, control and /or mechanical system for industrial and domestic usage. Electrical Engineering comprises of electronics, computer, instrumentation, communication and control engineering. Therefore, Electrical Engineering is essential for all engineering disciplines and its scope is vast and unlimited. The applications 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. There are remarkable career opportunities for an Electrical Engineer especially in Pakistan as well as in other developed 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.

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

PLO 4: Investigation: An ability to investigate complex engineering problems in a methodical way including literature survey, design and conduct of experiments, analysis, and interpretation of experimental data, and synthesis of information to derive valid conclusions. 

PLO 5: Modern Tool Usage: An ability to create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modeling, to complex engineering activities, with an understanding of the limitations. 

PLO 6: The Engineer and Society: An ability to apply reasoning informed by contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice and solution to complex engineering problems. 

PLO 7: Environment and Sustainability: An ability to understand the impact of professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts and demonstrate knowledge of and need for sustainable development. 

PLO 8: Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of engineering practice. 

PLO 9: Individual and Team Work: An ability to work effectively, as an individual or in a team, on multifaceted and /or multidisciplinary settings. 

PLO 10: Communication: ability to communicate effectively, orally as well as in writing, on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions. 

PLO 11: Project Management: ability to demonstrate management skills and apply engineering principles to one’s own work, as a member and/or leader in a team, to manage projects in a multidisciplinary environment.

PLO 12: Lifelong Learning: ability to recognize importance of, and pursue lifelong learning in the broader context of innovation and technological developments.

 

Note: These PLOs are published on the faculty’s webpage. Furthermore, they are prominently displayed on several notice boards around the department.
