University of Sharjah
Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Electronics Engineering
The Electrical and Computer Engineering Department offers two programs, one program leading to B.Sc. in Electrical/Electronic Engineering and the other leading to B.Sc. in Computer Engineering. The Electrical and Electronics Engineering program combines the analysis and design of electrical and electronic circuits, mechanisms for automated control of processes, communication systems, signal processing and electrical power generation and delivery. Integrating modern science with practical applications is the core of advanced technology, particularly in electrical engineering. Electrical engineers are involved in all areas of today’s information society. The advancement in modern technologies - such as the Internet, mobile communication, high performance computers, power plants, renewable energy and robotics - was based on applied electrical and electronics engineering principles. Therefore, a modern Electrical and Electronics Engineering curriculum needs to be thoroughly grounded in the founding theories of electrical engineering while being dynamic to accommodate the advancement of the current technologies and the development of new ones. The curriculum offered by the Department in Electrical and Electronics Engineering teaches sound engineering principles and an ability to apply them to the solution of problems. This is done through emphasis on practical problem solving, design capability, and laboratory work along with team projects. Some flexibility is provided through a choice of departmental electives in the different areas of electrical and electronics engineering.
