The Computer Lab with latest machines and free internet facility has also been provided. In addition, simulation softwares are available to simulate complex engineering processes. Students are encouraged to complete projects of industrial usage in hardware as well as in software.

Master of Science (MS) in Electrical Engineering

Short Title: MS (Electrical)
Duration: 4 Semesters (2 years)
Credit Hours: 30
Eligibility: An applicant must possess a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering
i. Must be a registered PEC Engineer
ii. Should have passed Graduate Assessment Test (GAT) organized by National Testing Service (NTS)
iii. Must have passed Bachelor in Engineering with a CGPA of minimum 2.5 or an aggregate percentage of 60% in annual system
Location:: Engineering Campus (males)
Program Description:

The Master’s program aims to provide an avenue of higher learning to fresh graduating engineers and also to engineers already working in the field and industry. Moreover, it will incorporate the latest developments and research and contribute towards improving the quality of engineering teaching and instruction. The School of Electrical Engineering at TUF already has a well-established Bachelor’s program that has been producing quality engineering graduates since 2006. Currently the school has faculty members holding Doctorates and Masters Degrees from well-reputed universities. These faculty members possess extensive field, research and teaching experience. The faculty members are active in research work and have numerous publications in refereed research journals with impact factors. They also participate and present papers in national and international conferences, thereby keep abreast of the latest research work and also keeping in touch with the national and international research community. The Department has a number of well-equipped laboratories to support experimental work relating to Master’s projects. Various advanced software programs can be utilized by graduate students to carry out simulations, design-work and mathematical-modeling. The University has an excellent library that houses a very large number of Electrical Engineering books, both in paper and soft (digital) form. The library also has access to the HEC digital library. The School will also facilitate research work by providing graduate with access to IEEE explore and other prestigious research journals.

 

Objectives:
  • To provide an advanced understanding of modern electrical power systems.
  • To provide an advanced understanding of electronic materials design and operation of electronic devices, circuits and systems.
  • To provide an in-depth understanding of the mathematical concepts underlying the design, analysis and operation of modern electronic, power and communication systems.
  • To understand and resolve the power systems issue using smart grids, renewable energy resources and other modern available techniques.
  • To impart quality education at par with international standards.
  • To be commensurate with the need of the industry by providing professionals who are able to engage in the latest (theoretical and practical) R &D.

 

The Semester system regulations currently followed will also be applicable at the MS level. The policies for the MS program are the following:

  • The requirement for the completion of the MS program is a minimum of 30 credit hours. Each MS course is of 03 credit hours and the MS thesis is of 06 credit hours. Thus the requirement to complete the MS degree is 08 Courses, Proposal Defense,a Research Paper in HEC recognized Journal and a Thesis.
  • If an MS course has a required pre-requisite, and a student admitted to the MS program does not have that pre-requisite, then he must complete that pre-requisite at the undergraduate level before he can enroll for the MS course.
  • Students may not register for more than 03 courses in one semester.
  • A student can register his thesis only with the postgraduate faculty members of the School of Electrical Engineering. The list is available on The University of Faisalabad Website.
  • A co-supervisor can be selected from another School of The University of Faisalabad or from another University of repute or from the industry (PEC registered Engineers only) through the approval of the Dean of the Faculty.
