Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (BSEEE) – 135 credit hours

This 135 credit program was designed to train professionals for the electronic and electrical industries in Bangladesh. This program will help to educate and train students in classroom as well as practical laboratory sessions to make them competent professionals to meet the contemporary requirements of Electrical and Electronic Engineering in the four major areas of concentrations: Power Systems, Electronics, Communications and Computer Engineering.

During the first two years, the students are introduced to the basic principles of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. In this period, the students are also exposed to broad based pure science courses such as Physics, Mathematics and a wide range of general education courses, such as English, Philosophy, Liberal Arts and Social Science Courses.

The third year concentrates on broadening the fundamental knowledge in Electrical and Electronic Engineering Systems. During the fourth year, students are encouraged to deepen their knowledge and understanding in areas of particular interest and ability. Finally, the students are required to complete a project in their area of specialization.

The proposed BS-EEE program is design to have total 135 credits, requiring about 4 years to complete. In order to provide exposure and enhance post graduation employability, students must complete at least two (2) weeks of industrial training after completion of 80 credits of course work.
