Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

Introduction and Background

In the modern-days, development of a country mainly depends on the development of the industries. The development of these sectors significantly depends on the standard of technical education nurtured by the universities and the technical institutes of the country. It is observed that most of the devel­oped countries maintain a strong relationship between the universities and the industries. It is believed that universities are the gateway of new technologies. Universities develop new technologies and by co-operating with indus­tries they implement these technologies to raise the standard and effectiveness of the industry. Universities take the responsibilities to provide technical human resources for the industries of any country.

The core Strategy of the Department is to pursue its vision and mission to enhance its research, linkage with industry, academic and scholarly activities and become a center of excellence for its programs, thereby improving its eminence in national and international rankings.
