Overview

The BS in 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 and internationally recognized program combines the rigor of theory with the reality of engineering practice. As an Engineering hub, Dubai is the perfect place to study an engineering degree and interact with industry.

The major will prepare you for an exciting career within the varied electrical engineering disciplines and for positions in business management. As a graduate you will also have the foundation to pursue advanced study at the most prestigious graduate schools. Since the ability to design is an essential part of electrical engineering, you are presented with challenging design problems in a number of courses, beginning with Freshman Practicum course in the first year.

The electrical engineering curriculum is supported with advanced labs in electronics, digital systems, communications, EM Fields and transmission lines, smart energy, control, and robotics. In addition, an advanced lab in digital transformation was established in 2018 and funded by TDRA/ICTFund to promote design thinking and innovation. The lab supports the research and development of secure and smart solutions across a number of verticals that support digitization for government, enterprise, health, and education through capstone projects and use cases. Details of these labs are provided at the bottom of this section.

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. Electrical engineering students at RIT Dubai can choose to declare energy as their degree option or otherwise take some energy courses as professional electives.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is playing a crucial role in solving electrical engineering problems using both machine learning and deep learning. Electrical engineering students can choose to take one or more courses in AI as professional electives to equip them with the theoretical foundation and hands-on experience to prepare them to use AI in real-life applications found in communications, robotics, energy, and other areas.
