The Electrical Engineering Department, established in the year 1426H/2005G. Electrical Engineering is among the most exciting and challenging areas of engineering, and are the key disciplines in a highly technological society. Electrical engineers have been driving the evolution of technology by being able to effectively apply fundamental concepts and integrate knowledge from various disciplines while pursuing frontier research, creating new ideas and innovations, and Designing and developing new products. Many of the products and services utilized all over the world are based on the work of electrical engineers. The availability of electric power for domestic and industrial use, the extensive, fast and reliable communications between countries, are some examples of the contributions of electrical engineers to human advancement. In addition to this, contributions by electrical engineers to the development of concepts in communications, simulation, analysis and control are applied in areas such as economics, and management.
The Electrical Engineering landscape is evolving rapidly and poses many challenges to engineers today. Prince Sattam bin Abdulaziz University’s (PSAU’s) Electrical Engineering (EE) undergraduate programs are designed to graduate versatile engineers for immediate employment and to prepare them for challenges ahead. The program has strong emphasis on scientific and engineering fundamentals and a high degree of flexibility which can provide a wide diversity of educational experiences. It allows the students to plan their individual educational experience in accordance with their career aspirations.
The undergraduate Electrical Engineering program leads to the Bachelor of Science Degree with a Major in Electrical Engineering (Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering).
