The aim of ‘Electrical, Electronic and Communication Engineering’ (EECE) programme at CUST is to equip its graduates with the knowledge and skills needed for high quality engineering work as well as advanced engineering research and to prepare its graduates with a broad intellectual spectrum to make them ready for diverse and competitive career paths in the concerned field.
The objective of the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Program is to produce graduates who would be able to:
- Apply knowledge of mathematics, numerical analysis, statistics and computer and information sciences with advanced specialist bodies of knowledge within the electrical and electronic engineering discipline.
- Plan and execute a research and professional project which demonstrates intellectual independence and contributes to the evidence base within the EECE discipline.
- Discriminate and defend the application of established engineering methods and processes to promote systems which resolve emerging complex EECE problems.
- Continue to develop their knowledge and skills after graduation in order to succeed individually and contribute to industry’s success.
- Work ethically and effectively as a member of a multidisciplinary development team and undertake leadership roles when appropriate.
- Adapt theoretical knowledge applicable to the discipline and propose creative, innovative and sustainable engineering practices.
- Apply professional ethics and accountabilities in their engineering practice and a commitment to ongoing professional development.
After having undergone this programme at CUST, the graduates are expected to:
- Integrate conceptual and basic understanding of various disciplines of EECE and be capable of working in the field of electricity generation and distribution.
- Design and develop smart grids incorporating communication, control, and automation technologies in this modernization. In addition, design and manage communications infrastructure like telephones, radio, TV and the Internet.
- Work in the electricity supply industry with special skills on power systems analysis, operations and management of large industrial manufacturing plants and substations.
- Exhibit expertise and professional judgment in engineering design practice which acknowledges contextual factors impacting the engineering discipline.
- Design and program microprocessor based embedded systems for use within a wide range of applications and industries.
- Plan and execute a research project or professional project which demonstrates intellectual independence and ethical soundness.
Electrical, Electronic and Communication Engineering graduates of CUST can find their jobs in the following fields:
1. Electric power generation, transmission, and distribution Company.
2. ICT, semiconductor and other electronic component manufacturing companies.
3. Telecommunication industries, software Industries, Defence Industries and Pharmaceutical Industries
4. Radio, Television or in other fast moving consumer goods industry.
5. Navigational, measuring, electro-medical, and control instruments manufacturing.
6. Scientific research and development service providers
7. Faculty members of higher studies programme at any institution.
Bachelor of EECE at CUST is a programme where students are trained to design and develop complex electrical systems, electronic and communication components, and products paying due consideration to multiple design elements and technical characteristics to secure competitive. Importantly, they develop a unique habit of engaging themselves in continuing education to keep up with changes in technology in the field of EECE. At CUST, they are also put to work with others during the manufacturing process to ensure that their plans are implemented correctly and follow the norms and disciplines of EECE. While working in a group they are to explain their designs and reasoning clearly and to relay instructions during product development and production both vertically and horizontally. Unlike many local universities, the long Industrial attachment that they are exposed to offers them the rare opportunity to validate their learning with the practical field to finally fine-tune the learning outcomes. CUST graduates are also exposed to develop technical publications related to equipment they develop, including maintenance manuals, operation manuals, parts lists, product proposals, and design methods documents. Last but not the least, during the industrial attachment, for 06 credits, the competent resource personnel of the concerned industry would serve as faculties and the assessment will essentially be done by them. So, as a potential employer you will have the opportunity to know the potential of our student before they are actually employed in your firm. It may be mentioned here that at CUST all lecturers and staff are passionate about the future of their respective industries and the students whose minds they shape and groom. Here efforts are always on to maintain the integrity of our courses and graduates by continuously shaping and updating the syllabus around industry needs and trends.
