Message from Head of POWER Department


Welcome to the Department of Electrical Power Engineering website. We are delighted to see you exploring our website and considering us one of the organisations you may join. From this website, you will find detailed information about our exciting undergraduate and graduate programmes, our dynamic faculty and staff, their research programmes and the broad range of activities underway in the department.

Our department’s vision is to be a world-class centre of excellence and leader in teaching and learning as well as research within the field of electrical engineering through focussed activities and excellence of its faculty, staff, graduates and facilities. The Electrical Power Engineering department consists of 38 academic staff specialising in the fields of power systems, energy, power electronics and high voltage engineering. The department’s aims are to provide regional standard quality programmes of undergraduate and graduate education; to be a research active unit advancing the knowledge of engineering and science; and to serve the community and industry as an agent of technological, educational innovation and advancement.

The department runs Bachelor Degree in Electrical Engineering (SKEE) and Master in Engineering (Electrical Power) taught course programme (MKEP). Besides these programmes, the department also supports Master of Philosophy in Electrical Engineering (MKEE) and PhD in Electrical Engineering (PKEE) research programmes. The SKEE programme has been designed to emphasise on the understanding and acquisition of basic principles and skills in the field of electrical engineering and its sub-areas. The curriculum consists of core and specialised electrical engineering courses, related general education and supporting non-technical courses. Furthermore, the students’ exposure to engineering practice is integrated throughout the curriculum through the combinations of industrial training and invited lectures from the industries. The MKEP program is an advanced degree programme to cater for graduates and professionals who are seeking and updating greater knowledge of current technology and techniques in electrical power engineering. It is designed to develop competent electrical power systems professionals and the potential of tomorrow’s leaders in the power industry.

In strengthening research activities for complying with the research university status, the department has four research entities, namely, Institute of High Voltage and High Current (IVAT, MS ISO/IEC 17025 accredited laboratory), Centre of Energy System (CEES), Power Engineering Research Group (PERG) and Power Electronics and Drives Research Group (PEDG). The department’s academic staff are actively involved in research activities leading to producing research papers for leading journals and conferences at both national and international levels. Through research and consultancy work, the staff managed to secure a significant amount of money through grants and consultation fees.

We hope that you will explore our programmes and the research interests of the faculty. We invite you to read our website and find a way to become part of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering (FKE) family. We look forward to your contributions to the Electrical Power Engineering Department and we hope to be part of your success.
