The Electrical Engineering program offered by the Department of Electrical Engineering is appropriate to the University's mission and its design and composition as well as its delivery and assessment of learning outcomes are in accordance with international academic norms. There is a regular process of assessment and evaluation and the results of such evaluation are regularly utilized for continuous improvement of the program. Its program learning outcomes are appropriate to the level of qualifications awarded and are consistent with the UAE Qualification Framework (QFEmirates).
The EE program requires a total of 142 credit hours for graduation. This includes 3 credit hours for 12 weeks of practical training (internship) in engineering organizations preceded by 2 weeks of intensive internal training in the College of Engineering. The remaining 139 credit hours of course work are distributed over 8 full semesters and one summer semester. Accordingly, a student can complete all the requirements for graduation in a period of four years. For graduation, a student must have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0. Depending upon the chosen concentration, students are awarded degrees as follows:
The first three years of the study plan will be exactly the same as those of other concentrations and only in the final (fourth) year, students will take some different specialization courses.
The EE Program Goals, also referred to as Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) are stated below.
Graduates of EE program shall be:
For further information, please refer to the university admissions policy.
Graduates of electrical engineering pursue careers in a wide range of industries and services, including the electronic and computer industries, industrial manufacturing plants, security control systems, design automation companies, product design and development companies, major service companies for electronic appliances, mobile telephone industry, digital communication and networking industry, television and radio services, telecommunication companies, electrical power generation companies, electrical power distribution services, and renewable energy system design companies.
The Bachelor of Science degree is awarded upon the fulfillment of the following:
The Program Outcomes (POs) are also referred to as Student Outcomes (SOs). To combine both terminologies, these outcomes may also be referred to as Student/Program Outcomes. The EE program has 8 Program Outcomes, stated as 1 to 8, as given below.
PLO#1: An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
PLO#2: An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
PLO#3: An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
PLO#4: An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
PLO#5: An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
PLO#6: An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
PLO#7: An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
PLO#8: An ability to demonstrate broad knowledge in the field of electrical engineering and specialized knowledge in chosen concentration
The Program Goals, based on the needs of its constituents, are broad statements. On the other hand, the Program or Student Outcomes (POs or SOs), derived from Program Goals, are defined in measurable terms and represent the abilities and attributes of students at the time of their graduation. Accordingly, there must be a welldefined relationship between Program Outcomes and Program Goals as the former will assist in attaining the latter. For the EE program, this relationship is given in Table 1 which shows how SOs will prepare graduates to attain the Program Goals.

The rationale for the above table is as follows:
Goal #1: The most relevant program outcomes are those related to technical competence, i.e. 1, 2, 6, and 8. Program outcomes 3 and 5 are relevant because teamwork and effective communication play an important role in professional environment.
Goal #2: Program outcomes 7 and 8 are relevant because with their current knowledge and skills as well as ability for lifelong learning, graduates will be able to continually update their knowledge and skills.
Goal #3: Program outcome 4 is relevant since in addition to an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility, it is also important to have knowledge of contemporary issues and the impact of engineering solutions while engaging with the community at different levels.
Goal #4: For graduate studies all program outcomes related to technical competence, i.e. 1,2,6, and 8 are relevant. In addition, outcomes 3 and 7 are important because they relate to communication skills and selflearning ability.
The Program Outcomes are consistent with the level of qualification awarded as defined in the UAE Qualification Framework. Out of twelve Program Outcomes, four each are for knowledge, skills, and competencies, as follows:
Autonomy and Responsibility
Role in Context
Selfdevelopment
The alignment of Program Outcomes to QFEmirates is shown below in Table 2.

Power and Renewable Energy Study Plan 
The Minor in Electrical Engineering is offered to undergraduate students enrolled in either Biomedical Engineering or Computer Engineering programs offered by AU. There are some basic core courses that are common between these three programs. Having taken these basic core courses in their own programs, students majoring in the Biomedical and Computer Engineering programs will have the required foundation to expand their knowledge and skills in Electrical Engineering by taking some important courses in this discipline, thus enabling them to get a Minor in Electrical Engineering. The courses in the study plan of Minor in Electrical Engineering are designed such that students taking this Minor will not have to take any additional course just for the sake of meeting the prerequisite requirements.
The specified courses for Minor in Electrical Engineering are given in the following table. These courses were selected after considering the study plans of Biomedical Engineering (BME) and Computer Engineering (CE) programs at AU to ensure that students of these two programs have the required prerequisite courses to take the courses needed for obtaining Minor in Electrical Engineering.
