Department of Electrical, Electronics and Communications Engineering


Engineers make things happen. They use what is known from science to develop new technologies and use new technologies to create successful innovations. Today’s electronics and communications engineers continue to revolutionize the way we live. They work with very small things like integrated circuits, which control virtually every electronic item in the home and industry, all the way up to large things like vast telecommunications systems or the electric power grid that stretches across a nation. From radio and television to life-saving medical equipment and computer games, many familiar items have been made possible by engineers. The challenges and opportunities in engineering continue to grow. The rapid changes in electrical, electronics, and computer technology and the diversity of applications require a broad educational background and a commitment to learning new and specialized information throughout their careers.

The bachelor of science program in ECE at AURAK is designed to produce graduates who have the necessary theoretical background and the technical know how and skills to meet the high demand for well-trained engineers. As in a US institution, students take five or six courses a semester over a period of four years to four and a half years for a bachelor’s degree in engineering. In the first two years students develop skills in IT, English, Communications, and math and also study broad areas of human knowledge – the sciences, the social sciences, the arts, and humanities. This general education provides a foundation of general knowledge and develops students’ ability to gather and use information appropriately, to communicate well orally and in writing, to think analytically and clearly, and to learn how to learn. The last two to two and a half years are devoted to courses in the major, as the sample degree plan indicates.


Introduction of  EECE Department Laboratories

Students within the Department of Electrical, Electronics and Communications Engineering, throughout their four years of study, take a number of laboratory courses. These courses are distributed among all theory courses, including electrical circuits, electronic circuits, digital design, and communications engineering. Beside on the mentioned subjects, students also take programming for signal and systems field courses using MATLAB software. In addition, the department has a senior project and research laboratory room containing all the necessary hardware and software for students to utilize in their senior projects.

EECE Laboratories

ECE Laboratory I (Room G330)

This laboratory is used to conduct research as it offers a variety of components and electronic equipment. The ECE Lab I is typically used by senior students in order to complete their final projects.
