The Mission


The Department of Electrical power and  Machines Engineering strives to educate highly skilled engineers capable of meeting the emerging demands of both international and domestic markets while also conducting practical research.

Overview 

In a world suffering from a severe shortage of one of the most important elements of civilization: energy, the program of Electrical power and Machines is paramount.

The Electrical Power and  Machines Program prepares an electrical engineer with a high level of knowledge in the fields of power and traditional electrical machines, as well as modern systems and generation methods from new and renewable energy resources.

The program aims to provide high-quality education in the field of electrical power and machines engineering, which contributes in providing a graduate with skills that enable him to effectively practice the profession of power and electrical machines engineering, deal with real problems in this field, and allow him to quickly integrate into the labor market and provide specialized services to the community.

A total of  900 students are studying in the program.
