Electrical engineering is a challenging but exciting and rewarding field of study. It is a rich and rapidly advancing field that plays a significant role in shaping all facets of modern society. This includes generating, transmitting, and storing electrical energy, developing and utilizing wired and wireless technologies of broadband communications, controlling complex systems, and developing hardware and software systems that are at the core of most device we interact with on a daily basis. The rapid industrialization and computerization of Qatar's economy is creating a need for highly skilled electrical and computer engineers who plan, design, implement, and manage this transformation. Studying electrical and computer engineering prepares students for playing key roles in developing and managing the information, communication and electrical energy infrastructures of Qatar and the region.
The program curriculum is designed to prepare the graduate for work in the highly diverse electrical engineering profession. A solid foundation in physics, chemistry and mathematics is used to support course in the fundamentals of electrical engineering.
The program leverages the integrated use of computers throughout the curriculum while laboratory work allows students to learn and then apply basic concepts to a wide range of engineering problems. After their exposure to the most recent analytical techniques and technological developments, students will implement engineering concepts using state-of-the-art computers and laboratory equipment. Foundation studies in analogue and digital circuits, signals and systems, electronics, electromagnetic fields and computer architecture during the sophomore and junior years leads to three main elective tracks in the senior year.
The electric energy systems track is designed to train students in the theory and techniques related to electromechanical energy conversion systems, electric power and power electronic systems. The communication track is designed to prepare students to address challenges in the area of digital and wireless communication systems. The computer engineering track is designed to enhance student knowledge and skills in developing and maintaining the hardware and software components of modern computer and communication systems.
All tracks have similar requirements and provide a broad based and rigorous educational experience.
