BEng (Hons) in Electrical and Electronic Engineering programme has been designed to have unique features taking into account the current industry trends and demands. For instance, the module Electrical Systems and Installation comprehensively cover design, installation, and maintenance related subject matter of medium and low voltage electrical systems in commercial and industrial buildings, factories, and other built environments.
At present, there are over 200 registered solar power-related companies in the country. Sri Lanka has planned to up the renewable power share of the total installed capacity to as much as 50% in 2030. It is 10% right now. There are significant numbers of medium and large scale wind and solar PV projects to be implemented in the coming years. At the same time, rooftop solar systems are becoming widespread. Renewable Energy Systems module in the programs addresses the current local, regional, and global trends in Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
This programme has been very much custom-designed to address the current trends locally and regionally with a heavy practically oriented subject content. The timely nature and high relevance of the course content contribute to students’ overall employability.
Electrical Systems Design and Installation is a core module in electrical and electronic engineering. This module is designed to develop, refine and apply the ideas and skills of electrical, ELV, industrial communication and active network systems, and lighting systems design and installation. It enables students to identify and develop skills in the solution of problems relating to electrical systems design and installation.
The module is primarily delivered through lectures, supported by practical laboratory work, with additional support material available on blackboard. The assessment is through miniproject, practical home assignments and final exam.
Instrumentation, Control and Group Project module is designed to give students an opportunity to work as a member of the design team on an electrical, electronics, and communications engineering design project with strong application of ideas and skills of measurement, instrumentation, control and automation engineering. It enables students to identify and collectively develop skills in the solution of problems relating to systems automation, control and monitoring. On the one hand the students develop skills to plan and team work to solve, model, design and implement an engineering system to meet an industrial need.
This module is designed to develop, refine and apply the ideas and skills of renewable energy systems and energy management. It enables students to identify and develop skills in the solution of problems relating to design, installation, maintenance, and energy economics analysis of renewable energy systems with special emphasis on wind, solar, wind-solar hybrid systems and minimizing the cost of energy through systematic energy management approaches in engineering. The students develop skills to solve, model and interpret, and more importantly, gain practical know-how in the related subject domain
The Individual Project module combines the technical and academic facets of the programme and provides students with an opportunity to complete a capstone project applying the knowledge and skills learnt during the programme to achieve agreed deliverables. It enables students to develop their research skills using and applying information from the technical literature
