Electrical Engineering

After completing Western Engineering’s Common First Year, you can enroll in the Electrical Engineering program, which covers a broad discipline including energy and power systems, information communication and transmission, control and automation systems, biomedical engineering, and more.

You may select technical electives in fourth year among a wide variety of courses to specialize in any one or a combination of these areas.

Information Communication and Transmission

Information Communication including wireless systems is one of the most dynamic areas of industrial development and research. Technical electives in this area allows students to explore the operation and design of communication systems. Courses in theory and design of Communications Systems, Antennas, Data Networks and Digital Signal Processing are some examples. 

Power Systems

The world is looking to develop sustainable, environmentally friendly and diversified sources of electrical energy. There is also significant demand in the power generation and distribution industry for the renewal and expansion of technical personnel. Electrical Engineering program offers an elective course that offers students a solid background in design and the operation of conventional power systems, as well as insight into modern and alternative sources of electric power generation. 

Biomedical Engineering

As society continues to age there is a higher demand for intensive upgrades and modernization of medical equipment, resulting in a greater need for engineers specializing in design, manufacturing and servicing of such devices. This option offers students a solid background in the fields of signal processing, imaging and biomedical systems. School of Biomedical Engineering offers a concurrent degree program that allows students to specialize in this area
