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 Centre for Advanced Studies in Physics (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. The University crossed another landmark in offering quality engineering education after the interim visit of Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) in 2008, in which PEC allowed GCU Lahore to continue its engineering programme. On the recommendations of PEC, establishment of Faculty of Engineering was approved by the Syndicate in 2009 and the programmes were shifted from CASP to their present premises. Department of Electrical Engineering was notified in March 2010. The BSc Engineering programme was accredited by PEC 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 programmes. The curricula are designed under the guidelines of Higher Education Commission (HEC) and PEC. The curricula are regularly updated in accordance with the demands of the relevant stakeholders.
Department of Electrical Engineering at GC University Lahore wishes to produce high quality graduates with excellent preparation for leadership in the profession and provide exceptional service to the country and the people.
The department aims to meet the needs of relevant national and international industry and research organizations through its undergraduate and graduate programmes by producing engineers with highest senses of techno-economic competence and skills for developing solutions to the existing and emerging electrical engineering problems. The programmes would enable students for leadership in the profession with an aptitude for lifelong learning and translate research into practical applications.
