BS Electrical Engineering


Introduction

Welcome to the Electrical Engineering Department (EED) at Information Technology University (ITU), Lahore. At ITU, our students have access to a wide array of subjects, including electronics, communication systems, control systems, power systems, microwave engineering, digital signal processing, renewable energy, bioelectronics, robotics and photonics. Our goal for students is to give them a high-quality engineering education that includes hands-on experience. Our department has one of the finest faculty in the country who have studied and worked for institutions of international repute. The faculty members are dedicated to carrying out research and involving capable students in individual projects. The Department of Electrical Engineering has a carefully designed curriculum which offers a wide range of knowledge, aiming at an integrated education and training of future technologists, entrepreneurs and engineering workforce for the private and public sector. It is important to highlight that both Higher Education Commission (HEC) and Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) recognize BS in electrical engineering program at ITU.
