Electrical Engineering is an enormously vibrant field. From its inception in 20th century, electrical engineering has become the defining technology of our age. From electricity generation to its distribution and usage in industry relating to automation, home appliances, computers, telecommunications that have their basics in electronics are integral to modern culture and are the primary engines behind much of the world’s economic growth. The field, moreover, continues to evolve at an astonishing pace with introduction of new technologies and making the existing ones become obsolete.
CIIT Lahore offers number of specialized Electrical Engineering tracks corresponding to areas of computer engineering and telecommunication engineering. Building on the broad scientific foundation provided by the core curriculum and fundamental courses in electronics, electric circuits, electromagnetic theory, mathematics, linear systems, analogue, and digital design, these specialized areas focus on a range of upper level courses to bear on a particular specialty.
