Introduction

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.
