Electrical Power Engineering provides you the fundamental principles in electrical and their practical applications in industries. You are expected to work in sectors like power generation, transmission and distribution.
To provide an integrated educational experience directed toward development of the ability to apply pertinent knowledge to the solution of practical problems in the graduate's engineering technology specialty. To expand scientific and engineering knowledge by preparing our graduates for employment as technician supervisors through innovative research and hands-on training that responds to the need and challenge of our ever-changing world.
The program should enable the student to:
1Contribute to society in a broad range of careers.
2Flourish professionally in an increasingly international and rapidly changing diverse world.
3Effectively understand, use, and develop modern power engineering technologies and concepts.
4Develop skills for clear communication and responsible teamwork, and to inculcate professional attitudes and ethics, so that one is prepared for the complex modern work environment.
5Acquire sufficient breadth and depth for successful subsequent upper-level studies, or lifelong learning.
6Develop and apply critical thinking skills, enhancing the ability to address unstructured problems specific to technical specialties in power engineering.
7Acquire the technical and managerial skills necessary to enter careers in the design, application and maintenance in power systems.
