Electrical Engineering

The Faculty of Engineering & Applied Sciences (FEAS) was established in January 1998 to carry forward the mission of the Islamic International Medical Trust by augmenting the national effort in the field of technical education and assisting in the establishment of institutions dedicated to impart education in engineering disciplines and technologies. The Islamic International Engineering College is a constituent College of International University. Health Sciences has been the hall mark of Riphah International University. Keeping in view the vision of the founding fathers of IIMC Trust and the unique multidiscipline educational environment of RIU such as Medical College, Teaching Hospitals, FEAS launched the Biomedical Engineering Program in 2009.

At national level, Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) continues to re-accredit both our engineering specializations. The latest re-accreditation visit held in May 2015 resulted in PEC re-accreditation of our EE graduate batches of years 2015 as well as 2016.

As far as the Department is concerned, academic standards and practical work are the two key parameters. The Department of EE has a fine blend of renowned as well as young and dynamic personalities as faculty, who are involved in imparting quality education. All PhD faculty members of EE are foreign qualified. The faculty strives to foster and encourage a teaching methodology that enables strong theoretical foundation leading to a hands-on practical approach. This orientation has led to successful projects and trainings.

The lab facilities are annually upgraded and provide state of the art tools and equipment for the students to learn and innovate. The Department is fully equipped with all the labs required for the curriculum such as Electronics Lab, Electrical Machines Lab, Signal Processing Lab, Communication Lab, Control Systems Lab, Computer Lab, Measurement and Instrumentation Lab, and Design Project Lab etc.
 
For the extra curriculum activities, Departmental society has been established by the students. This society regularly conducts various technical and cultural events. “Engineers are the creators of the new world”. Going with these lines, the Department has the fully equipped Project lab to encourage the students to show their creativity. Educational tours and industrial visits are regularly organized to enhance the practical knowledge of the students and enable them to interact with the recent technologies used in the industries.
 

Message from the Dean
It is my pleasure to introduce you to the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Sciences (FEAS), Riphah International University, Islamabad. I am both humbled and honoured by the great responsibility bestowed upon me to take the FEAS to greater heights in academic and research excellence. FEAS is one of the oldest and leading faculties of the University which presently consists of following departments: 1. Department of Electrical Engineering 2. Department of Biomedical Engineering 3. Department of Mathematics & Statistics 4. Department of Physics Both the undergraduate programs i.e. BSc Electrical and Biomedical Engineering are duly accredited by Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) under Washington Accord and are in-line with Higher Education Commission (HEC). By virtue of this accreditation, the degrees conferred by the FEAS would be reckoned as substantially equivalent to the degrees awarded in the signatories of the Washington Accord members (USA, UK, Australia, Canada, Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea, Hong Kong, Russia and China etc.) In addition, postgraduate programs including MS and PhD Electrical Engineering, MS and PhD Biomedical Engineering are also offered. The undergraduate and graduate programs are being taught under semester system of education. The curricula of the programs are designed and developed as per guidelines and recommendations of the PEC and HEC. In order to cater for the practical and research requirements of the programs, state-of-the-art labs have been developed and maintained. It is ensured that our graduates get comprehensive hands-on-experience on the latest equipment in the respective areas. Besides, the students are groomed to get expertise on solving of engineering and applied sciences complex-problems in real-life. Therefore, the students are trained in such a way that they meet the market requirements and thus get absorbed at earliest in the respective industries. The importance of Basic Sciences in the Universities is like a heart-beat in human body. The Basic Sciences are essential for proper understanding the technical subjects, promoting research work, widening the vision for the future and enhancing the quality and authenticity in Sciences. The subjects of Basic Sciences: Mathematics, Physics, Statistics play a vital role in the development of a country. We are committed to produce competent, motivated and socially responsible Mathematicians, Physicists and Statisticians that they can build the good traditions through education and to participate actively in the development of country. PhD, MPhil, MSc and BS Programs are simultaneously offered in Mathematics, Statistics and Physics department. Presently, there are about 3505 undergraduate and graduate students in FEAS. Highly qualified teachers including 55 PhDs are hired in the faculty who got rich academic and research experience. Various research groups are involved in research activities which produce quality work in their respective areas. Our faculty is actively involved in thematic, applied and multi disciplinary research and thus FEAS is the highest research-producing faculty of the University. I assure you of quality education, cutting-edge research and conducive environment so please have a “seeing is believing visit” of our campus.
