BS Electrical (Telecommunication) Engineering

Degree scope has been changed to BS Electrical Engineering Since Fall 2017

This program focuses on one of the leading sector of today’s modern engineering field. This new industry base includes the traditional wired communication companies, mobile & cellular companies, wireless local loop operators, and broadband communication companies. With the advancement of digital communication and a rapid growth in information technology and telecommunication sector, a new industrial base has sprung up which requires engineers with more specialized skills in this area. Keeping in mind demand of this evolving industry, the degree includes latest digital technologies as well as traditional communication techniques. At the initial stages the students grasp the fundamentals of Electrical Engineering supported by essential mathematics and physics courses. These courses are followed by area specific courses which introduce students to different specialties in Electrical Engineering. At the later years the students choose a specialization course and they also study advanced courses. In the highly competitive job market a young engineer is not only required to be knowledgeable in technical areas but is also expected to have excellent communication and managerial skills and an appreciation of modern day economics to design and implement a cost effective engineering solution. Students are also offered courses in communication skills, engineering management and economics to prepare them for challenging environments. The course work is supported by state of the art engineering labs. During four years, students work in many labs where they perform experiments using state of the art instruments, equipment and simulation software. For the graduates to have deeper understanding and appreciation for all or some of the above mentioned industries, further sub-specializations are offered as electives. The sub-specializations options include optical communication systems, wireless communication systems and radar and navigation systems.

Degree Accreditation

BS Electrical (Telecommunication) Engineering is accredited by Pakistan Engineering Council under Level-II as per Washington Accord for Spring 2015, Fall 2015 and Fall 2016 intakes. All previous batches are accredited by Pakistan Engineering Council under Level-I.

Program Scope and Structure:

This program covers vast areas such as signal and image processing, optical fiber and mobile communications, data networks, software systems, micro-electronic devices & systems, data encoding, compression, encryption & transmission, electric machines, and antenna & radio wave propagation.
Keeping in view the above mentioned versatility in the field of telecommunication, the scheme of studies has carefully been designed not only to impart a strong foundation of basic electrical engineering concepts but also make the students able to cope with the diversified domains of telecommunication sector. The course content is specifically focused to enhance the problem solving approach of students as well as carrying out quality and modern research in telecommunication domain.
To develop a well rounded personality, the students are also offered courses in humanities, management and social sciences as well. As a requirement to the completion of the degree the students are also required to complete a design or research project in which they apply the knowledge and skills gained during the course of this engineering program. The students submit a written report, demonstrate their design or research effort and defend their project before a jury for award of grades.
A brief summary of this program is given below:
Minimum Duration: 4 Years
Minimum No. of Semesters: 08
