Role and Scope

Electrical Engineering being one of the core fields of engineering is always evergreen in terms of scope and job prospects. Electricity has become the basic need for survival, globally.

As such, electrical engineers find their utility in maintenance and running of industrial plants, communication and satellite navigation systems and domestic electronic equipment. Electrical Engineering equips the learner with the knowledge of electrical circuit design, digital electronics, instrumentation and control system, modern telecommunication and signal processing.

The PhD Electrical Engineering program provides the graduates with the broad as well as in-depth technical education necessary for productive employment in the public or private sector. It is designed towards development of understanding of advanced issues important for current and future needs of the region. The PhD Electrical Engineering program at The University of Faisalabad also offers an understanding of the breadth of education and depth of training necessary for leadership in this profession.
