About Us

Department of Electrical Engineering started as a research group called Computer & Control Systems Group (C&CSG), with the main objectives of establishing research activities and training in the areas of Computer Sciences and Control Systems Engineering. The group launched MS Systems Engineering program in 1988. After restructuring of PIEAS, formerly known as Center for Nuclear Studies (CNS), it was separately established as Electrical Engineering Department in 2000.

More than 300 scientists and engineers have graduated and currently 65 students are registered under M.S. Systems Engineering program. Ph.D. in Systems Engineering was started in 1999. Two students have been awarded Ph.D. degrees in Systems Engineering and 8 are currently pursuing their research leading to Ph.D. The first batch of BS Electrical Engineering students was inducted in Fall 2009 with specialization in Electronics. Specializations in Power and Computer Engineering will also be offered in the coming years.
