Dr Abdur Rashid
Department of Electrical Engineering
Welcome to CIIT Abbottabad’s Department of Electrical Engineering. Our department’s vision is to be recognized nationally as well as Internationally for high-quality educational programs and research through focused activities and excellence of its faculty, staff, graduates and facilities. We will achieve this vision through fostering the education of students and by contributing to the base of electrical engineering research.
Our main goal is to impart quality education by introducing Objective Based Learning through our continuously-accredited electrical engineering degree programs. Undergraduate electrical engineering students have access to a wide array of subjects, including communication, computers, control systems, electronics, electric circuits, microelectronics, and power systems. Computer engineering students are exposed to the broad spectrum electrical engineering and computer science courses with an emphasis on embedded systems. Each year, in the month of May, a two days national level competition of various electrical undergraduate projects is conducted where students from different part of the country takes part in it and show their maximum potential to earn first, second, third or consolation prizes.
Our second goal is research productivity. Our on-campus graduate programs are research oriented and lead toward the degrees of master of science and doctor of philosophy. The main focus of research is Flexible AC transmission (FACT), Antenna and Microwave Propagation, Communication, High Voltage in Power and Control Systems. Through these core research areas, our faculty are expanding the base of knowledge by Publishing their research in numerous international journals of   repute.
