The Faculty of Engineering and Technology (FET) was established in year 2007 with Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (DECE) as its first constituent department. The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (DECE) already existed in the university under the Faculty of Applied Sciences. The foundation stone of an independent building block, namely Engineering Block was laid in April 2007, and inaugurated in July, 2009.
The present Electrical and Computer Engineering Department is one of the largest departments within the University with a thriving undergraduate and postgraduate student population of over 700. The syllabus is continually under development and review, in line with the requirements of various professional bodies (such as Higher Education Commission and Pakistan Engineering Council) that accredit our programs, and the latest technological needs of industry.
To become a nationally recognized Electrical and Computer Engineering Department that engages in the highest quality teaching and research, benefiting our students, our faculty, the University, the Nation, and society at large.
To provide an accessible, high quality, nationally recognized undergraduate and graduate education in Electrical and Computer Engineering that prepares students for productive careers, graduate study, and lifelong learning.
The Faculty of Engineering & Technology is currently concentrating on the specialized training of manpower in broader areas of Electrical and Computer Engineering such as telecommunication, signal and image processing, controls and advanced electronics etc. The faculty aims to produce engineers of international standards so that they can also cater to the needs of the industry.
The Department is currently equipped with 16 state of the art laboratories, used in undergraduate teaching, final year projects and graduate research:
Basic Electronics Laboratory
Digital Electronics Laboratory
Instrumentation & Control Laboratory
Data Communication & Networking Laboratory
Computer Aided Design and Simulation Laboratory (Undergraduate)
Computer Aided Design and Simulation Laboratory (Graduate)
Signal Processing Laboratory
Microwave and Antenna Laboratory
Prototype Robotics Laboratory
Project Development Laboratory
Basic Electronic Laboratory (female section)
Digital Electronic Laboratory (female section)
Computer Aided Design and Simulation Laboratory (female section)
The faculty members in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (DECE) are actively engaged doing a variety of research problems and allied graduate level teaching. These problems are both specific and cross-disciplinary in nature. The broader research synergy is:
Medical Imaging and Machine Learning (MIAMI)
Radar and Communication Systems (RaCS)
Control and Power Systems (CaPS)
Sparse Signal Processing (SSP)
Predictive Intelligence and System Modelling (PRISM)
