The Department of Electrical Engineering began its journey in September 2001 at Islamabad, Abbottabad and Wah, and has made big strides in its brief span of existence. The peer-departments at CIIT Lahore, Attock, which were established in 2002 and 2007 respectively, offer conducive environment for studying various disciplines of Electrical Engineering. Our curriculum is unique in that it enables students to learn techniques required to solve complex engineering problems and at the same time equips them with managerial and professional skills.
One of the main aims of the department is to actively achieve gender mainstreaming in our programs. Women are doing remarkable work in the engineering world today. Now that fields such as Computer Engineering, Telecommunication Engineering, and Electronics Engineering are offering congenial work environments for females, there is an increased demand from the female students to enroll in the Engineering Department courses. CIIT encourages and welcomes female enrollment and increase in their ratio in its engineering programs.
