The Electrical Engineering Department has numerous general and specialized laboratories, as well as extensive facilities devoted to experimental studies and research programs. Research activities in the EE department are carried out within six major research groups,
• Bio-Electric Engineering
• Communications (Communication systems, Cryptography, Electromagnetics & Optics)
• Control Engineering
• Digital Systems
• Electronics (Microelectronic Circuits, Nano- & Microelectronic devices)
• Power Engineering (Power systems, Power Electronics & Electric Machines, Power System Control & Management)
Moreover, the department accommodates three national centers of excellence (CoE), i.e., Communication Access Systems, Cryptography, and Power System Management & Control.
The research program of the EE department covers both fundamental and applied fields, and is carried out by more than 70 faculty members and 200 PhD students. Annually, about 40 PhD degrees are conferred, and more than 300 papers are published in reputable international journals and conferences. In addition, the EE department has industrial collaboration in diverse areas including control, power, electronics, communications and bio-engineering.
Faculty members of the EE department have been involved in large number of direct research collaborations with universities in the US, Canada, Western Europe and Asia Pacific and have been awarded numerous international prizes for their research contributions. The department is proud of having an exceptional body of alumni active at top research institutes and companies that offer seminars and workshops throughout the year, providing a basis for knowledge exchange at world class level. The EE department believes in further expanding its international activities by participating in larger scale research projects funded by EU, Canada, Australia and far east countries in coming years and hence, playing a more active role in edge of science and technology research activities.
