Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, at University of Information Technology & Sciences (UITS) under the Faculty of Science and Engineering, is more of a learning institution where the focus is more on knowledge than mere skills. The faculty members in the department are individuals who are deep researchers qualified to write and critique contemporary textbooks in the area they teach; obviously they do not teach to a “fixed syllabus”. They “design” the courses considering current trends and the student background so as to blend what is collectively taught across different courses into a cohesive body of knowledge that prepares the students not just for today but to take on the developments that are likely to take place years ahead. What is laid in the courses is a solid foundation that prepares the individual student to pursue academic or industrial career with rigor and innovation. The lectures are supplemented by several laboratory sessions, tutorials and self-reading (both individually and in groups) as well as projects. It is not sufficient to pick up what is taught in the class or written in the textbooks; it is important to understand, assimilate and demonstrate the individual and collective ability to demonstrate that the student can apply the knowledge to a research/application environment. This is what sets apart the department of EEE at UITS from the rest of the Institutions. The degree is awarded as Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, abbreviated as B.Sc. in EEE. The minimum required CGPA to obtain the degree is 2.25 and the student must complete a minimum of 152 credits.

B. Sc. in Electronics and Communication Engineering

The program is rigorous with an emphasis on practicalities and skills for immediate use, which offers students a comprehensive education in all major facets of business.

UITS is more of a “learning institution” than a mere “teaching institution”. It is not a “teaching shop”; obviously the focus is more on gaining knowledge than mere skills. The faculty are individuals who are deep researchers qualified to write and critique contemporary textbooks in the area they reach; obviously they do not teach to a “fixed syllabus”. They “design” the courses taking into account current trends and the student background so as to blend what is collectively taught across different courses into a cohesive body of knowledge that prepares the students not just for today but to take on the developments that are likely to take place years ahead. What is laid in the courses is a solid foundation that prepares the individual student to pursue academic or industrial career with rigor and innovation. The lectures are supplemented by several laboratory sessions, tutorials, self-reading (both individually and in groups), and projects. It is not sufficient to pick up what is taught in the class or written in the textbooks; it is important to understand, assimilate and demonstrate the individual and collective ability to apply the knowledge to a research/application environment.
