DEPARTMENT OF ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING


The College of Engineering, King Saud University, was established in 1382 H (1962 G), with the Department of Electrical Engineering being one of its main departments. Following its successful B.Sc. program in Electrical Engineering, the Department was the first Engineering Department to offer an M.Sc. program in 1402 H (1982 G), and a Ph.D. program in 1412 H (1991 G). This booklet aims at introducing the Department: its vision, mission, and values; its B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. programs; its labs; and its members of academic staff, together with a list of samples of their research publications. The information in the booklet illustrates the high standard enjoyed by the Department and its graduates at all levels.


Vision, Mission and Values


Vision

The vision of the Department of Electrical Engineering is to contribute to improving the well-being of the society by promoting the Electrical Engineering profession through providing well qualified Electrical Engineers who can perform and manage, learn and accumulate experience, respond to change, create and contribute to knowledge, and provide innovative products and services.


Mission

In order to work toward achieving its vision, the mission of the Department of Electrical Engineering has the following four integrated directions.

  • To provide high quality educational programs in Electrical Engineering that combine knowledge with skills, and that interact with progress and change.

  • To focus on personal qualities and distinctions and to encourage research and innovation in Electrical Engineering fields.

  • To cooperate with the Electrical Engineering industries, both in the manufacturing sector and in the service sector.

  • To respond to the changing needs of the society in the Electrical Engineering fields.


Values

The Department of Electrical Engineering operates according to the spirit of the following four values:

  • To manage with quality and efficiency and to emphasize cooperation, ethical values, and trust.

  • To treat individuals with dignity and respect, and to value diversity.

  • To support distinction and to encourage creativity.

  • To focus on the well-being of the society and to protect humanity.



Academic Programs


The department offers academic programs leading to the following scientific degrees:

  • Bachelor of Science Degree in Electrical Engineering with specialization in Electrical Power Engineering (EPE) or in Communications and Electronics Engineering (CEE)

  • Master of Science Degree in Electrical Engineering (Non-thesis and thesis options).

  • Doctor of Philosophy Degree in Electrical Engineering



Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) Programs


The undergraduate programs offered by the Department of Electrical Engineering provides students with an aptitude for applied sciences and mathematics to develop their capabilities and skills and to apply them to a broad range of problems dealing with electro-technology. Graduates of B.Sc. degree program offered by Electrical Engineering Department acquire excellent background in basic sciences, mathematics, electromagnetism, electrical and electronic circuits, measurement devices, electromechanical energy conversion, electrical power, communications, computer and control systems, analogue and digital systems and applications of various technologies in the electrical engineering discipline. In addition to obtain the essential background and skills in a broad range of electrical engineering topics, the undergraduate programs offer the students a choice to specialize in one of the following two areas:

  1. Electrical Power Engineering (EPE)

  2. Communications and Electronics Engineering (CEE)

The general program for obtaining the B.Sc. degree in any one of the above-mentioned two specializations enables the student to comprehend the essential fundamentals of electrical engineering and yet allow him to specialize in a suitable branch of his choice.


Development of Skills

The Electrical Engineering Undergraduate Program is designed to provide student with the following skills:

  1. An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics and science to the general field of electrical engineering.

  2. An ability to design and conduct experiments pertaining to electrical engineering, as well as to analyze and interpret data.

  3. An ability to identify, formulate and solve electrical engineering problems including, system design and performance evaluation.

  4. An ability to perform and function as a team member and work within multidisciplinary teams.

  5. An understanding of professional electrical engineering duties and ethical responsibility.

  6. An ability to communicate effectively with peers, customers and public.

  7. An ability to engage in life-long learning pertaining to electrical engineering.

  8. An ability to use the techniques, skills and modern tools necessary for electrical engineering practice.

  9. An ability to apply knowledge of probability and statistics in electrical engineering.

  10. Knowledge of mathematics including calculus, differential equation, linear algebra necessary to analyze and design complex devices and systems containing hardware and software components as related to electrical engineering.

  11. An ability to recognize the interactions between the electrical engineering and contemporary professional, social and global issues.


^ Graduation Requirements

To obtain the B.Sc. degree in electrical engineering with specialization in Electrical Power Engineering (EPE) or Communications and Electronics Engineering (CEE), the student must successfully complete 160 credit hours which are split over 10 levels of studying addition, the students are also required to complete 60 days of Industrial Training.

Towards the total of 160 credit hours, 72 credit hours represent the University and the College requirements whereas 88 credit hours represent the Department requirements. The University and College requirements consist of 12 credit ours of Islamic Culture and Arabic Language courses, 9 credit hours of English Language courses, 33 credit hours of courses in Basic Sciences (Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry), and 18 credit hours of General Engineering courses.

The Departmental requirements of 88 credit hours are split into 45 credit hours of compulsory core courses in Electrical Engineering, 38 credit hours of specialized courses in the fields of Electrical Power Engineering (EPE) or Communications and Electronics Engineering (CEE) and 5 credit hour senior year project which spans over two consecutive terms and is devoted to more specialized education in one of the many electrical engineering areas according to the individual student's interest.

Table 1, Table 2 and Table 3 show the distribution of 160 credit hours over 10 levels of study for the B.Sc. degrees in Electrical Engineering:

  • Table 1 lists the common courses of the two B.Sc. programs EPE and CEE, which are given over the first three years (six semesters) of study;

  • Table 2 lists the courses required by the EPE program, which are given over the last two years (four semesters) of study; and

  • Table 3 lists the courses required by the CEE program, which are also given over the last two years (four semesters) of study.

Flow charts for the sequence of courses in the undergraduate program for EPE and CEE along with the required pre-requisite and co-requisite requirements are shown in Figures 1 and 2. These charts clearly show how basic and advanced courses are arranged to have a logical sequence of the program in order to achieve the outcome identified next.
