RIT DUBAI ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING MISSION STATEMENT
“The mission of the Electrical Engineering program is to produce graduates with the appropriate skill set and experiential education who will have an immediate impact in the workforce, pursue graduate studies, and embrace life-long learning. The program also prepares graduates to adapt to the technological changes, create significant individual and industrial growth opportunities, and practice the profession with a social conscience.”
Electrical engineering addresses the high-technology needs of business and industry by offering a rich academic program that includes analog and digital integrated circuits, digital signal processing, radiation and propagation, power electronics, control systems, communications, circuit theory, computer architecture, computer-aided design, embedded systems, solid-state devices, microelectromechanical systems (MEMs), robotics and energy. Our nationally recognized program combines the rigor of theory with the reality of engineering practice.
The major prepares students for exciting careers within the varied electrical engineering and allied disciplines and for positions in business management. Graduates also have the foundation to pursue advanced study at the most prestigious graduate schools.
The curriculum, co-op program, and facilities are designed to accomplish the program’s educational objectives. Since the ability to design is an essential part of electrical engineering, students are presented with challenging design problems in a number of courses, beginning with Freshman Practicum (EEEE-105) in the first year.
Energy has received a worldwide attention in recent years because of the diminishing natural resources, emergence of novel technologies such as smart grid as well as engineering innovations in photovoltaic cells, wind turbines and other renewable energy sources. In addition, modern power system management involves energy conservation, an area that has also elicited opportunities for research. Click here for more details.

Effective fall 2013, RIT will move from the current quarter system to a semester-based academic calendar. These materials and resources are designed to ensure that students who are on track will graduate on time. Students are encouraged to talk to their academic advisers if they have any concerns or questions regarding their courses and progress.
