Chairman’s Welcome message
I would like to thank you for showing interest in the department of electrical and electronic engineering at The Near East University. Electrical and electronic engineering is the second largest department in the Faculty of Engineering, as measured by the number of students.

Electrical and electronic engineering is a discipline with various career paths. Electrical and electronic engineers have long worked in areas such as integrated circuits, telecommunication systems, image processing and computer vision, automation and robotics, as well as electrical power systems.

Upon completion of their bachelor’s degree (B.Sc.), the students are in position to continue their studies in graduate school or get a job in industry. We offer three undergraduate specialization options to help students achieve their career goals. These are:

  • Telecommunications Option
  • Power Systems Option
  • Control Systems Option

Besides the bachelor’s degree in electrical and electronic engineering, the department offers associate degree in electrical and electronic technology (A.E.E.T) as well as technician degree in electrical and electronic technology (H.D.E.E.T). These degrees are two and three years long, respectively.

The department also offers Master of Science (M.Sc.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) graduate programs in electrical and electronic engineering.

Faculty research activities at the graduate level include: Telecommunications, error-correcting codes, wireless communications, signal processing, signal transmission, computational intelligence, high voltage engineering, insulation design of gas insulated systems, load break switches, circuit breakers, power electronics, drive systems, renewable energy sources, software engineering, assisted living, digital image processing, medical imaging, artificial neural networks, pattern recognition, intelligent vehicles, stereo vision and electromagnetics.

I welcome you to find out more on this website about the range of opportunities in the department and I hope that you will find a suitable program that is right for you among what we offer. If you have any questions or would like additional information, do not hesitate to let us know.
