Competencies

Graduates of the Electrical and Control Engineering program are expected to acquire a range of competencies at different levels. This includes: (A) General Engineering Competencies (B) Specialized Program Competencies. Details are shown as follows:

General Engineering Competencies:

On successful completion of the Electrical & Control Engineering program of study, the graduate should be able to demonstrate:

A1:  Identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying engineering fundamentals, basic science and mathematics.

A2:  Develop and conduct appropriate experimentation and/or simulation, analyze and interpret data, assess and evaluate findings, and use statistical analyses and objective engineering judgment to draw conclusions

A3: Apply engineering design processes to produce cost effective solutions that meet specified needs with consideration for global, cultural, social, economic, environmental, ethical and other aspects as appropriate to the discipline and within the principles and contexts of sustainable design and development.

A4: Utilize contemporary technologies, codes of practice and standards, quality guidelines, health and safety requirements, environmental issues and risk management principles.

A5: Practice research techniques and methods of investigation as an inherent part of learning.

A6: Plan, supervise and monitor implementation of engineering projects, taking into consideration other trades requirements.

A7: Function efficiently as an individual and as a member of multi-disciplinary and multicultural teams

A8: Communicate effectively – graphically, verbally and in writing – with a range of audiences using contemporary tools

A9: Use creative, innovative and flexible thinking and acquire entrepreneurial and leadership skills to anticipate and respond to new situations

A10: Acquire and apply new knowledge and practice self, lifelong and other learning strategies.

Specialized Program Competencies:

In addition to the above-mentioned engineering-level competencies, graduates of the Electrical & Control Engineering program are expected to acquire specialized competencies, as follows:

B1: Select, model and analyze electrical power systems applicable to the specific discipline by applying the concepts of generation, transmission and distribution of electrical power systems

B2:  Design, model and analyze an electrical/electronic/ digital system or component for a specific application and identify the tools required to optimize this design

B3: Design and implement elements, modules, subsystems or systems in electrical/electronic/digital engineering using technological and professional tools

B4: Estimate and measure the performance of an electrical/ electronic/digital system and circuit under specific input excitation, and evaluate its suitability for a specific application

B5: Adopt suitable national and international standards and codes to design, build, operate, inspect and maintain electrical/ electronic/digital equipment, systems and services
