Department of Electrical Engineering

 

Introduction

TOP

The foundation of Department of Electrical Engineering was laid down back in year 2000 when Computer Technology and Communication Programme was started under the umbrella of CASP at Postgraduate Diploma level. The programme was upgraded to MSc Telecommunications programme in 2002. The Programmes gained significant recognition and graduates are making substantial contribution in the expansion of computing and telecom industry. Recognizing the strong role of engineering education in the national economy, engineering discipline was strengthened in 2006, when a BSc Electronic and Telecommunication Engineering Programme was introduced the same year. University crossed another landmark in offering quality engineering education after the interim visit of Pakistan Engineering Council in 2008 in which PEC allowed GCU Lahore to continue its engineering programme. On the recommendations of Pakistan Engineering Council, establishment of Faculty of Engineering was approved by Syndicate in 2009 and the programmes were shifted from CASP to its present premises. Department of Electrical Engineering was notified in March 2010. The BSc Engineering Programme was accredited by Pakistan Engineering Council in 2011 and since then the Department is doing its utmost in providing quality education in the country. The Department currently offers BSc Electrical Engineering and MS Electrical Engineering.

Academic Programmes


1. BSc Electrical Engineering
2. MS Electrical Engineering (Evening) with Specializations in:

  • Computer Engineering

  • Electronic Engineering

  • Control Engineering

  • Telecommunication Engineering

BSc Electrical Engineering

 

The four years BSc Electrical Engineering programme was initiated in 2006 to meet the demand for qualified and skilled personnel in industry. The area is vital for normal working and growth of Pakistan's economy where there is an acute shortage of competent and qualified manpower. In line with the tradition of GC University, this degree programme is run by well-qualified and competent faculty and staff members. This programme is primarily intended for students who have just completed their Intermediate education and are aspiring to gain professional competence and qualifications in Electrical Engineering.

 

The objectives of this degree programme are:

  • To develop in depth understanding of both theory and practice.

  • To develop the ability to reason with the knowledge to apply it to new problems as they arise in industry and research.

  • To make students aware of the social, technical and economic issues as they relate to electronics and telecommunications.

  • To provide exposure to leading edge technologies as they develop in the current research.

  • To cater for both national and international standards and codes of practice.

MS Electrical Engineering (Evening) with Specializations

Embedded systems, robots and computer numerical controlled machines are rapidly replacing conventional domestic and industry equipment and appliances. Even a modern automobile has got built-in microcontrollers for optimum control and fault diagnostics. The design and development of these applications requires sound knowledge in areas like Mechatronics and Control Engineering, Computer Engineering and Electronic Engineering. The implementation of LTE and other emerging advanced wireless and broadband technologies, which opened new horizons and has created the applications of telecommunications in areas like security and surveillance, medicine and education world over, is still awaited in Pakistan. The primary reason for this loss, apart from law and order situation, is the comparatively higher cost of the projects because of unavailability of telecom R&D sector in Pakistan. This deficiency can only be met with by producing professional telecommunication engineers of high caliber in the country. Realizing these facts, GC University Lahore initiated MS Electrical Engineering Programme with the following specializations:

  • Electronic Engineering

  • Control Engineering

  • Computer Engineering

  • Telecommunication Engineering

Research

 

Following three research groups have been established in the Department:

 

  • System Level Integration

  • Robotics and Intelligent Systems

  • Signal Processing

 

Facilities

 

The Department holds following sophisticated labs with state-of-the-art equipment:

 

  • Electronics Lab

  • Communication Systems Lab

  • Signal Processing Lab

  • Embedded Systems Lab

  • Logic Design Lab

  • Data Communication and Networks Lab

  • Power Electronics and Electrical Machines Lab

  • Computer Lab

  • Workshop and Drawing Hall

 

Departmental Library

 

The Department has a collection of over 2000 books explicitly related to Electronic Engineering, Control Engineering, Computer Engineering and Telecommunication Engineering.

 

Career Opportunities/Scope

 

Electrical Engineering is a profession that uses science, technology, and problem-solving skills to design, construct, and maintain products, services, and information systems. An electrical engineer may choose to couple the technical aspects of a position with management responsibilities. The requirement of technical expertise for today’s manager has significantly increased because of the explosion of knowledge in all engineering disciplines.

 

A Bachelor of Science degree in engineering with a specialty in electrical engineering may also serve as a starting point for careers in many other diverse fields, ranging from business to law, medicine, and politics, since the problem-solving skills acquired in an electrical engineering programme provide an extraordinarily valuable asset that serves as a solid foundation to progress in any field. In addition to the primary fields of electrical, electronics, and computer engineering, a Bachelors degree in electrical engineering serves as an appropriate base for several allied fields. These include, for example, biomedical engineering, computer science, and aerospace engineering.

 

Some of the potential employers in Pakistan include:

 

  • Power Sector: NTDC, PEPCO, LESCO, GEPCO, Kohinoor Energy (Pvt) Ltd and Orient Energy Systems etc.

  • Telecommunication Sector: PTCL, Ericsson, Huawei, Ufone, Telenor, Mobilink and Wateen etc.

  • Defence Sector: NESCOM, Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (Kamra) and HMC Taxila etc.

  • Consumer Electronics: PEL, Samsung, Sony, Dawlance, Mitsubishi and Haier etc.

  • Other Engineering Companies: Pak-American Fertilizers, Packages Ltd, NESPAK and Pioneer Cement Industry etc.
