MSc / PG Diploma in Electrical Installation

The MSc/PG Diploma in Electrical Installation programme covers a broad range of activities and evolving issues that are of great importance in the field of electrical engineering and electrical installation. The programme has been designed to provide students with theoretical and technical knowledge mainly in the area of electrical installations in addition to electrical machines, energy studies, etc.


The lectures are carried out by experts and members of the academic staff and the industry. Our aim is to educate industrially orientated professionals with firm theoretical understanding and profound expertise in the field of electrical installation and electrical engineering. All lectures, practical classes, assignments, etc will normally be conducted on weekends during the fi rst year of the course. Those who successfully complete all the modules will be awarded the postgraduate diploma. A selected set of those who are eligible for postgraduate diploma may proceed to undertake an individual project of one year of duration on part-time basis. Those candidates who successfully complete the research project will be awarded the degree of master of science.
