What we do

Master of Science in Electrical Engineering (MEKA)

Electrical engineering forms the fundamental study to the generation, distribution and utilisation of energy efficiently. There will be significant growth in research, development and manufacturing activities in the field of electrical engineering and it constitutes the basis for valuable and worthwhile careers for well-qualified graduates.

  • Programme Overview

    The Master of Science candidate is supervised by an academic staff (or a panel of supervisors) from the faculty. The directed research work will focus on a particular subject that introduces candidates to the processes by which new knowledge is developed or/ and applied accordingly. The specific topic of investigation will be agreed upon by the supervisor (or panel of supervisors) and the candidate. The academic progress of a candidate is assessed through a research. Progress Report submitted at the end of each semester. The degree is awarded based on an oral examination (viva- voce) of the thesis submitted by the candidate on completion of the study. Candidates intending to study by research may submit their application for admission throughout the year.
