The Department of Electrical Engineering was established in 2012 offering an Electrical Engineering Program for undergraduate studies, due to the local and regional labor market demand for electrical engineers. The department has a high caliber, well-experienced staff with high academic ranks. At the beginning of the program, 7 students joined the program in the second semester of the academic year (2011/2012). Since then there was an increase in the number of students enrolled in the program. In this academic year (2016/2017) the total number of students reached 96.
The electrical engineering department includes many specialized laboratories such as electrical circuits, devices and measurements, electrical machines, electric power, power electronics, lighting design, electrical wiring, engineering works and engineering drawings.
The Department offers different ancillary courses for other engineering departments such as Electronics and Communication engineering, computer engineering, Medical engineering and civil engineering.
Excellence in the quality of the graduates academically and professionally to meet the requirements of the local and regional labor market and to keep up with the technological advancements in the field. Stimulate and strengthen the scientific research in Electrical Engineering.
