Executive Summary

The design of the curriculum has been carried out for the Department of Electrical Power Engineering at the Gollis University. The curriculum aims to give more emphasis to practical aspect of engineering education and to develop the capacity of students for innovation and creative works.

Based on the result of the professional profile, inputs from the various stake holders and data collected from relevant international university programs a BSc curriculum has been designed. The BSc program will be a full-time eight-semester program consisting of an assessment semester, three semesters of basic study , three semesters of specialization study,  one final semester of BSc industrial internship and/or project study thesis.

In order to raise the practical problem solving and creative capacity of the students, in addition to the normal lecture-classes the teaching and learning process shall be supported intensively and extensively by laboratory, computer-simulation and project works. To maintain the standard and relevance of the education, a continuous internal and external evaluation system will be integrated in the program which finally leads to the international accreditation of the program.

1.  BACKGROUND

1.1.   Introduction

The diffusion of technology and knowledge is a salient feature in the technological change, innovation and growth of the modern society. Much attention is being given to the role of universities in the development of nations.  Universities  all  over  the  world  are  playing  a  crucial  role  in  producing competent professionals who will be taking responsibility of the country’s technology and resources. This goal of universities can be further fostered by a strong link with the industries. A strong bond and relation between universities and the industry helps not only in finding out immediate solutions to prevailing challenges in the industry but also will help in producing all rounded and sharp professionals who will later be important assets to the development of the country.

This interest and aspiration in our students motivates the Faculty for dynamic and positive changes in reshaping the Faculty’s objectives in education and research. The Faculty also has plans to motivate the students to participate in community based extracurricular activities, and to help them contribute in societal problem solving.

The graduates of the Faculty have profound knowledge in basic science, mathematics, social science besides the major studies of Power systems, control systems, software design, hardware design and microprocessors.

Electrical Power Engineering plays an important role in the development of the country. Our graduates will work in electrical power and installation sector all over the country in a variety of jobs. They work in installation, design, testing, research and sales of Power devices and systems.

1.2. The need for the Electrical Power Engineering

  • To teach the fundamentals of modern power system and renewable technology,
  • To conduct and foster creative research by addressing the needs of industry, government and the scientific community.
  • To graduate well-balanced students with up-to-date technical knowledge, and high aspirations to excellence, poverty alleviation and leadership.
  • To publicize our achievements through enduring publications and via conference

1.3. Visions for the Electrical Power Engineering

  • To produce the best and most motivated students to serve the nation and the world.
  • To attract research funds based on advanced technical goals with high impact.
  • To develop lasting partnerships with industrial and government agencies.
  • To achieve visibility by active participation in conferences and technical and community activities
  • To publish enduring scientific articles and books
  • To earn prestigious awards and recognitions.

2.  OBJECTIVES

It is being observed that there is a widespread and fast change in the application of power system and generation from different sources in the world. Therefore, there is a need to introduce a running system with respect to the national and international situation. The Course feels that much is expected from it to bring about changes in the field of Electrical Power Engineering, Electrical power installation and Electrical power Management and Safety.

To-day’s  electrical  power  engineers  must  be  able to  find  solutions to  new  complex  and challenging technical problems. They must have strong scientific, technical and managerial skills and be able to integrate technical concepts with practical applications.

2.1.   General Objectives

  • To produce students with full professional competence in Power  engineering
  • To train high level technical manpower which can participate in the national Faculty activities
  • To train young entrepreneur that can make their own renewable energy business
  • To carry out research in the areas of Power and relevant to the needs of the Country.
  • To render consultancy services to the community.

2.2.   Specific Objectives

  • To prepare students for career opportunities in industry and public services
  • To provide fundamental knowledge in math, sciences, and engineering
  • To provide skills for design and maintenance of products and systems.
  • To provide implicit understanding of the social and ethical responsibilities
  • To enable graduates work as a team in addressing technical problems that may be encountered in industry in real life.
  • To provide opportunity for workers in the field of electrical technology to upgrade their knowledge through a continuing education evening program.
  • To engage students in research that offers optimal solutions to technical problems in the industry, energy sector, computer applications and other industrial sectors.
