Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering Program
The Electrical Engineering Department has been in the forefront of the educational development process at King Saud University up to this year as it celebrates its 50thanniversary. Since its establishment, the Electrical Engineering Department has effectively contributed to the rapid development of the educational system in the Kingdom by striving to offer graduates who are qualified to play a vital role in all development plans of the country and hold key positions in all governmental and private sectors. As is understood by its faculty and staff members, the main objective of the Electrical Engineering Department is to educate highly specialized and qualified electrical engineers in different fields of electrical engineering who are capable of enhancing the rapid industrial, economic and social development that takes place in Saudi Arabia.
Accordingly, the Electrical Engineering Program prepares engineers to work in electrical power engineering stations, substations and high voltage transmission networks. The program also teaches students the issues pertaining to the design, development, and analysis of different types of electrical generators and motors in addition to their operation, maintenance, and control through extensive knowledge of power electronics. In addition, the program qualifies engineers to be capable of designing, developing, operating, and maintaining networks including antenna systems, satellite, microwave, and digital communications, in addition to signal processing. On the other hand, the program also prepares engineers to design, manufacture, and maintain the electronic systems used various civilian or military fields. Moreover, the Department prepares system engineers to design and manage automation, artificial intelligence and control systems of various industrial processes.
The Electrical Engineering Department is continuously updating the curricula of undergraduate and graduate programs to keep pace with the national and international norms. In this regard, the Department is fully equipped with advanced facilities and high-quality laboratories that cover all aspects of electrical engineering. These facilities are subject to continuous upgrades and improvements in order to keep pace with the latest technology requirements. Graduates of Electrical Engineering Program are thus equipped with experience to excel in notable job opportunities in various specialties related to electrical engineering. The Electrical Engineering Program is also accredited on both national level by “Education Evaluation Commission-National Center for Academic Accreditation”and internationally by “Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc. (ABET)”
