Date of Establishment:-
Department of Electrical Engineering was initially established as the Computer Engineering Department in March 2002 offering the BS Computer Engineering Program. The department offered BS Telecommunications Engineering in Spring 2004. Thereafter, name of the department was changed to Electrical Engineering Department during Fall 2004.
Introduction & Mission of the Department:-
The Department of Electrical Engineering at CIIT Lahore caters to all the requirements of the current technological innovations. The faculty is poised to turn the department into a centre of excellence while incorporating the specializations of Wireless Systems, Electronics, Control Systems, Signal Processing, Data Communications, VLSI, Photonics, Optical Communication and Image Processing. The department, team of 57 faculty members, commits itself and all its resources to achieve the glory that is the aim of COMSATS and keep the flag of CIIT Lahore up amongst the engineering institutions of stature and grandeur. It is envisioned to strengthen the quality of its faculty, research and teaching facilities, as well as students academic performance.
Vision of Electrical Engineering Department: -
Electrical engineering has gone from the simple electrical circuits of Edison and Tesla, through the rocket science of Bode, Evans and Nyquist, to the complexity of integrated circuits and optoelectronics. Basic telecommunications technologies that began with Bell have blossomed into global networks with satellites, fiber optics and the Internet. Computer technology has grown exponentially and touches all of our lives with processors embedded into a vast array of devices that secure our safety and add an unprecedented measure of convenience to our lives. Electrical power systems illuminate our planet and drive our industries. As this progress conveys us into the future with new and exciting engineering challenges, CIITs Electrical Engineers will be ready to meet those challenges.
This is our singular vision and we take great pride in the contributions that our graduates have made and will make to electrical engineering, now and in the future.
EE department provides strategic support for skills development at undergraduate and graduate levels, consultancy for academic staff, workshops for staff and students, and a wide variety of resources and support for personal development planning. The Department has its IEEE Chapter, the highest forum of research for EE Engineers. Student membership to IEEE is available from our chapter. Also Department regularly holds different Exhibitions, conferences & seminars. Department of Electrical Engineering also provides recognized Cisco Certified trainings (CCNA, CCNP etc).
The Department of Electrical Engineering, CIIT Lahore has focused all it's energies in achieving the ultimate target of World Ranking. Different measures are in progress to achieve this target and one of the measures is by Quality Teaching and Research Productivity. To improve research productivity a number of research groups, headed by the senior PhD faculty and having about 10 faculty members in each group, have been formed at the Department of Electrical Engineering. This evolving research environment attracts and retains high-performing staff at department.
