WELCOME To The Major Of ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING

OVERVIEW

Electrical engineering is a branch of engineering that basically deals with the study and application of electronics, electricity, and electromagnetic waves. This branch first became a well-known occupation at the end of the 19th century after the invention of the telephone, electric telegraph, and electric power use and distribution.

Electrical engineering includes electronic engineering. This distinction is only found in the US. Electrical engineering deals with the applications associated with systems like electric power systems, and electrical machines. However, electronic engineering is the study of electronic systems including digital computers, optoelectronics, integrated circuits, communication systems, and radar. Read More...

MISSION

The mission of the Electrical Engineering program is to provide outstanding education of sufficient depth and breadth to its undergraduate students in accordance with national and international high standards with the goal of responding to the pressing needs of rapidly changing technology in the Electrical Engineering field in KSA society. The program provides graduates with highest level of knowledge, skills and attitudes required for them to be leaders and beneficial to the community.

Objectives

The Educational Objectives of the Electrical Engineering program describe the expected accomplishments of our graduates during the first few years following their graduation from the program. The graduates will have the knowledge and skills needed to:  

  • Adopt and continuously practice life-long learning through acquiring new knowledge, improving skills and professional education.
  • Actively contribute to the advancement of engineering practice in the public or private sectors in the scope of electrical engineering domains.
  • Graduating professional engineers who apply ethical and social aspects in the electrical engineering problems.
  • Striving for a balance between theory, laboratory, and design experience by providing fundamental electrical engineering courses as well as exposing students to cutting edge technologies for design and implementation.  

PRACTICING ELECTRICAL AND COMPUTER ENGINEERING

In nearly most countries, a Bachelor's degree in engineering is the first step towards professional certification and the degree program itself is certified by a professional organization. After finishing a certified engineering degree program, the engineer should satisfy some requirements such as, work experience requirements before being certified. Read More...

SPECIALTY AREAS

It is of great importance to follow the program plan throughout its different semesters, as it was designed to prepare students in each stage to completely benefit from the subsequent stages. Additionally, it is crucial for students to meet their academic advisor and follow the study plan of their major closely, which would typically include taking the lower level courses in the first and second year, getting as much general education as possible, and then moving on to take the major courses and possibly some minor courses. This is a very carefully structured process that students should closely adhere to. Read More...
