Vision

The vision of the Electrical Engineering department is not only to embrace the rapid changes taking place in the Electrical Engineering sector but also to contribute to its sustainable development goals through education, research and innovations.

Mission

The mission of the Electrical Engineering department is to prepare individuals capable of responding to the rapidly changing field of Electrical Engineering. It is imperative that our students develop the necessary intellectual ability alongside moral and ethical values to successfully grasp this change. The department meets this challenge through implementation of a dynamic and versatile engineering education system.

Introduction

The Department of Electrical Engineering, since its formulation in 2004, has been imparting quality Electrical Engineering knowledge and skills to its Undergraduate students. Over the years, the department has gradually been evolving into its current state with advanced teaching methods, modern laboratory facilities, highly qualified faculty including PhDs and an efficient administrative/organizational setup. These advancements have resulted in the successful launch of MS and PhD programs from fall 2019. Additionally, to further improve career opportunities for prospective undergraduate electrical engineering students, the nomenclature of BSc Electrical (Telecommunication) Engineering has been changed to BS Electrical Engineering in fall 2019.

The adoption of Outcome Based Education (OBE) has been a major step forward for engineering education in Pakistan. Since the accreditation of Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) with the Washington Acord, this system has transformed our education system from the conventional input-based systems to an internationally accepted OBE system. This allows all stakeholders of the education system to contribute in the development of the engineering curricula. Based on recommendation of PEC and in line with university’s mission and vision, the department of Electrical Engineering, GCUF is adopting this system with effect from spring 2019.

In line with OBE system guidelines, university’s vision, mission and industrial needs, the Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) have been developed by the department of electrical engineering for BS Electrical Engineering program.

BS Electrical Engineering
Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

PEO-1

Apply Engineering Knowledge to resolve the technical/Engineering problems of the society.

PEO-2

Enhance the intellectual and analytical abilities in taking initiative and/or developinginnovative ideas for technological and professional growth in Electrical Engineering field.

PEO-3

Work effectively as a team member or lead multidisciplinary teams while determining/demonstrating the interpersonal and management skills and ethical responsibilities.

Additionally, there are twelve graduate attributes which have been defined by the PEC. These graduate attributes known as Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs) must be attained by the graduate students and serve as the integral part of OBE. These PLOs are attained by students through direct assessment of respective Course learning outcomes of Electrical Engineering curriculum. Additionally, Indirect assessment of PLOs is carried out by means of stakeholder’s feedback. The PEC provided graduate attributes adopted as PLOs of BS Electrical Engineering program are as follows:

 

BS Electrical Engineering
Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs)

PLO-1

Engineering Knowledge: An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.

PLO-2

Problem Analysis: An ability to identify, formulate, research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences.

PLO-3

Design/Development of Solutions: An ability to design solutions for complex engineering problems and design systems, components or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.

PLO-4

Investigation: An ability to investigate complex engineering problems in a methodical way including literature survey, design and conduct of experiments, analysis and interpretation of experimental data, and synthesis of information to derive valid conclusions.

PLO-5

Modern Tool Usage: An ability to create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modeling, to complex engineering activities, with an understanding of the limitations.

PLO-6

The Engineer and Society: An ability to apply reasoning informed by contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice and solution to complex engineering problems.

PLO-7

Environment and Sustainability: An ability to understand the impact of professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts and demonstrate knowledge of and need for sustainable development.

PLO-8

PLO-10

Communication: An ability to communicate effectively, orally as well as in writing, on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.

PLO-11

Project Management: An ability to demonstrate management skills and apply engineering principles to one’s own work, as a member and/or leader in a team, to manage projects in a multidisciplinary environment.

PLO-12

Lifelong Learning: An ability to recognize importance of, and pursue lifelong learning in the broader context of innovation and technological developments.

To fully implement the OBE system in Department of Electrical Engineering and   to incorporate stakeholders into the system, the department has established a Placement Bureau/ Industrial Liaison Office and an Industrial Advisory board.The Placement Bureau/ Industrial Liaison Office maintains close collaboration with the industry and facilitates internship/job placement of the students/graduates and also organizes industrial visits to bridge the gap between theory and practice. The Industrial Advisory Board, comprising representatives from power and telecom sectors including Faisalabad Chamber of Commerce& Industry (FCCI), advises the department on strengthening industry academia linkages and curriculum revisions in line with industrial needs.
