Electrical engineering is a broad field that offers career opportunities as diverse as consumer electronics, robotics, and automotive mechanics. To work in this field, you’ll need, at least, a associates degree or a bachelor’s degree for some positions. The Hayatt University College (HUC) offers a variety of programs for undergraduate study in the field of Electronic and Electrical Engineering; which lead to Bachelor of Science, B. Sc. (honor) degrees in:
- Communication Engineering.
- Multimedia Communication Engineering.
- Biomedical Engineering (Instrumentation).
- Electrical Power System Engineering.
Program Degree Requirements
The B. Sc. degrees at HUC are designed to prepare professionals to meet the needs of the growing Electronic and Electrical Engineering industry. Electrical engineering is concerned with the use of electricity to transmit electric power, or to process information. Electrical engineers design, develop, test, and integrate electrical power systems and electrical machines, as well as electronic systems, including portable electronic devices, medical equipment, communication systems, radar and navigation systems, and others.
A B. Sc. degree takes five years (193 credits hours) of full-time study. Courses in the program are in five main areas:
- Basic Sciences and mathematics.
- Engineering Fundamentals (includes courses on engineering economics, health and safety and professional practice);
- Electronic and Electrical Engineering fundamentals (includes courses on programming methodology, electronics, telecommunications and more)
- Electronic and Electrical Engineering profession courses.
- Humanities and Languages.
The combination of theoretical and applied knowledge in systems that apply on a global scale gives a toolbox and a B. Sc. for a lifelong learning process in Electronic and Electrical and engineering.
Programs Structures and Graduates:
The programs are designed around a set of core courses which provide a classical electronic and electrical engineering foundation, and a number of elective courses that allow students some flexibility to specialize in the areas that interest them most, such as communication, multimedia, biomedical and electrical power. Emphasis is placed on practical application of engineering knowledge.
Graduates of the HUC Electronic and Electrical program are prepared to fulfill a wide range of functions within industry. Employers of electrical engineering graduates include research and development laboratories, electronic equipment manufacturers, public utilities, colleges and universities, government agencies, medical laboratories and hospitals, electronic equipment distributors, and semiconductor companies, among others. The programs also provide a solid preparation for students intending to Communication to pursue graduate degrees.
The educational objectives of the HUC Electronic and Electrical Engineering Program are to produce graduates who, within five years after graduation, are able to:
be employed as a practicing engineer in fields such as design, research, development, testing, manufacturing, operations and service systems;
assume positions of leadership and responsibility within an organization; and
progress through advanced degree or certificate programs in engineering, business, and other professionally related fields.
The pedagogical structure of the programs are targeted towards learning system design processes as practiced in the industry. In general, the educational methods are based on what are expected from engineering graduates in an industrial environment, with specific emphasis on building and refining problem-solving skills, team work and presentation skills. Certain emphasis is placed on solving complex tasks by defining subtasks and interfaces, performing these subtasks independently, and assembling the results. All courses in the program are permeated by the principles of sustainable development.
Programs Intended Learning Outcomes:
Graduates of the programs are expected to demonstrate:
- an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.
- an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
