General Information

This program provides several areas of specializations (options) for graduate students to choose from, including:

  1. Intelligence System and Control
  2. Biomedical Engineering
  3. Electrical Power Engineering
  4. Electronics Engineering
  5. Computer Engineering, and
  6. Telecommunication Engineering

Intelligence System and Control 
This option gives you an opportunity to learn new skills, develop problem-solving abilities, and make considerable contributions to knowledge in control and intelligence systems. The program puts a balanced emphasis on theory and industrial applications. The students are encouraged to involve themselves in ongoing research topics in the school as part of their master's thesis.

Thesis research topics include: modeling and simulation, robust control, adaptive control, intelligence control and systems, non-linear systems, hybrid systems, discrete-event systems, saturating actuators, model predictive control, multi-variable control, and real-time optimization, industrial control and automation, mechatronics and electrical drive systems, active noise control, embedded systems, controls in robotics and autonomous systems.

Biomedical Engineering (BME)
BME is a multidisciplinary field that implements science, engineering and technological methods to help solve problems in biology and medicine, in order to improve community health care. It involves the processing of medical Information (e.g. alphanumeric data, physiological signals, static and dynamic medical images, sound, and voice) to support medical procedure (e.g. information/data collection, diagnosis, and therapy). Graduates from the program have the opportunity to pursue careers in research and education Institutions, hospitals and medical facilities; health related industries as well as other exciting and challenging areas.

Several course options are available: anatomy and physiology, medical informatics, physics of living systems, transducers and sensors in BME, Microelectronic Devices and Circuits, BME System Design, Biomedical Physics, Biomedical Instrumentation, Biological Control System, Biomechanics, Biomedical Image Processing, BME Industries, Electromagnetic and Ultrasonic in BME, Biomedical Eng. Ethics.

Electrical Power Engineering 
This program provides three options of specialization: power system, energy conversion, and high voltage/current engineering. Power system specialization encompasses any science and engineering for electrical power distribution systems. Energy conversion specialization focuses on science and engineering for non-electric to electric energy conversion and vice versa, conventional and non-conventional electrical power generator, and power electronics. High voltage and current engineering specialization consists of science and engineering for electrical device technology in a power system.

Electronics Engineering
This option provides comprehensive skills and knowledge in microelectronics processing and devices, microelectronics circuit design and microelectronics system design. Collaborating with the national and international microelectronics industry, the curriculum for Electronics Engineering is continuously improved to suit the industry needs. This program is equipped with a clean room for microelectronics processing devices (CVD, ion implantation, sputtering) as well as a design suite for integrated circuit design.

Computer Engineering
This option aims at producing graduates who master the skills and knowledge of computer engineering, and have the ability to analyze, synthesize, and evaluate research activity. These graduates are also expected to gain professional service through research and development (independently or as in a team) and to be able to continue their study to a doctoral degree. Computer engineering is a discipline that embodies the science and technology of design, construction, implementation, and maintenance of software and hardware components of modern computing systems and computer-controlled equipment [IEEECS/ACM, 2004].

Telecommunication Engineering
This option is designed to provide a strong foundation of concepts, theories, and the latest development of science and technology in telecommunication for those who pursue careers in telecommunication operations and services industry and regulations as well as in academics. Three areas of specialization are offered, including wireless communication engineering, telemetric/network engineering, and telecommunication management.
