University of Engineering and Technology, Taxila


UET Taxila
 

The Department of Electronics Engineering started in Fall 2010. Earlier this program was being offered as a specialization of the Electrical Engineering Program. The Department was initially housed in the renovated historic building of laboratory block (the first building of this campus constructed in 1977). Recently, in Feb. 2017, Department has been shifted to 2nd floor of newly purpose built Combined Academic Block (CAB).

The Department

The Department of Electronics Engineering (ENCD) was established in 2010 to fulfill the needs of the country by producing responsible graduates equipped with sound knowledge and skills along with highest moral values through conducive, learning environment. The Department offers four years Undergraduate Degree Program leading to BSc. in Electronics Engineering. Currently the undergraduate program is accredited with Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) at Level-II (i.e. OBE based). The Department also offers Postgraduate Degree Program leading to MSc and PhD in Electronics Engineering. The postgraduate program is approved and registered with Higher Education Commission (HEC) of Pakistan.

Students of the department often participate and win multiple national and international competitions related to technical and co-curricular activities that depict the strength of our Electronics Engineering program. The Department is located on the 2nd Floor of newly constructed Combined Academic Block.

Chairman's Message

Electronics Engineering has been, and continues to be, one of the most challenging and, at the same time, rewarding professions of modern society. Electronics Engineers continue to provide both technology and technological leadership for developments in numerous fields including semiconductors, nanotechnology, computers, telecommunications, and energy conservation. In addition, Electronics Engineers are being challenged to supply technical expertise to support advances in many other fields such as energy management, transportation systems, health care delivery, and public policymaking.

Since its inception, the Department has been active in recruiting outstanding new faculty members to support its teaching and research activities and we continuously add significantly to this faculty base. Our young faculty members have tremendous potential to change the traditional way of thinking about engineering education, pedagogy and research excellence. The Department strives for continuous improvement, and we continue to update the Department’s undergraduate and postgraduate curricula to better meet the needs of today’s students and tomorrow’s practicing engineers, as well as for students who want a strong technical background.

We welcome talented students to join this program to shoulder the responsibility as Electronics Engineers in building our nation and assisting all other engineering disciplines as needed by the society and industry.
