Electrical Engineering Technology

The programme deals with the generation, transmission, distribution and control of electric energy systems and related equipment. This programme prepares the students for positions as engineers with the technical and managerial skills necessary to enter careers in the design, application, installation, manufacturing, operation and maintenance of power systems. Students gain hands-on experience in instrumentation, electrical machines and power electronics. Graduates are well prepared for analysis, applied design, development and implementation of electrical systems.

Programme Educational Objectives

  1. Be effective in the design and practical application of electrical engineering technology solutions.
  2. Effectively lead, work and communicate in a team.
  3. Utilise IEEE or related standard practices for ethics, health, safety, and environment.
  4. Be successfully employed in an engineering technology or related field, or accepted into a graduate programme.
  5. Expand knowledge and capabilities through continuing education or other lifelong learning experiences.
  6. Serve the community, whether locally, nationally, or globally.

Student Outcomes

  1. An ability to select and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of the discipline to broadly-defined engineering technology activities;
  2. An ability to select and apply a knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to engineering technology problems that require the application of principles and applied procedures or methodologies;
  3. An ability to conduct standard tests and measurements; to conduct, analyse, and interpret experiments; and to apply experimental results to improve processes;
  4. An ability to design systems, components, or processes for broadly-defined engineering technology problems appropriate to programme educational objectives;
  5. An ability to function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team;
  6. An ability to identify, analyse, and solve broadly-defined engineering technology problems;
  7. An ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and nontechnical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;
  8. An understanding of the need for and an ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development;
  9. An understanding of and a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities including a respect for diversity;
  10. A knowledge of the impact of engineering technology solutions in a societal and global context;
  11. A commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement;
  12. The application of circuit analysis and design, computer programming, associated software, analog and digital electronics, microcomputers, and engineering standards to the building, testing, operation, and maintenance of electrical systems;
  13. The applications of physics or chemistry to electronic circuits in a rigorous mathematical environment at or above the level of algebra and trigonometry;
  14. The ability to analyse, design, and implement control systems, instrumentation systems, communications systems, computer systems, or power systems;
  15. The ability to apply project management techniques to electrical systems;
  16. The ability to utilise statistics/probability, transform methods, discrete mathematics, or applied differential equations in support of electrical systems.
