"The First Industrial Revolution used water and steam power to mechanize production. The Second used electric power to create mass production. The Third used electronics and information technology to automate production."

Klaus Schwab

The Department of Electrical Engineering is one of the oldest and eternally the youngest engineering field. Academic programs at our department are evolving constantly to reflect the city's development and needs. The students at the department are promising to become tomorrow's innovators, eager to learn and tackle the challenges they will encounter. Many of our graduates have been involved in most of the local large factories and developed companies and they provided.

The Electrical Engineering department was originally opened in 1974 (closed for political reasons in 1981) and re-opened and accepted students again in 2004. The department offers a Bachelor of Science (BSc.) degree in Electrical Engineering on a four-year class basis. The study in the department is not specialized in a specific specialty but rather it is in general, to provide the students with knowledge in all the electrical fields. However, a specialty is offered in the department through the postgraduate study in the fields of power, communications, and control. The department has 11 Laboratories in the field of Power, Machines, Communications, Electronics, Computers and Control, divided into 21 laboratory courses. All courses text and lectures in the department are in English.


The department is aimed to provide high-quality instructions based on the recent challenges in electrical engineering education. Developing future leaders will enhance and lead the factories and surrounding industries. Populating the department classes and making outstanding students are the most in the department. This has been achieved by combining the advanced technology available in our laboratories with the recent research skills of our staff.
