WELCOME TO METU NCC ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONICS ENGINEERING PROGRAM
Electrical and Electronics Engineering Program
Due to its leading role in the development and application of science and technology, Electrical-Electronics Engineering is one of the most rapidly changing and developing areas of engineering. Ranging from electromagnetic field theory to microwave circuit and antenna design, basic electrical circuit analysis methods to large-scale circuit design, digital system design to communication technologies, power electronics to high voltage & power system applications, symbolic logic to artificial intelligence and biomedical engineering to microelectronics, this field of engineering synthesizes well-established theories with emerging ones in great harmony and creativity in an effort to generate solutions and products in sectors as varied as energy, health, space technology and defense.
METU NCC Electrical and Electronics Engineering Program
The purpose of the METU NCC EEE Program is to provide a contemporary education opportunity in every field of Electrical and Electronics Engineering. Students, both national and international, will become engineering professionals with recognized research and leadership abilities, working creatively and effectively, and adhering to life-long learning principles. Students will not only acquire a sound knowledge of basic science, such as mathematics, physics and chemistry but they will also develop a firm understanding of economics, social sciences and humanities before specializing in Electrical and Electronics Engineering. Students can take advantage of the flexibility of the curriculum design and upon building a sound background on basic sciences and engineering sciences. They may specialize in the computer, microwave circuits and antennas, power systems and power electronics or control fields of Electrical and Electronic Engineering by choosing appropriate technical electives.
We are aware that many of university candidates and their families have essential questions, such as:
Electrical and Electronics (EE) Engineering is the field of engineering that deals with research, design, analysis, manufacturing, and testing of electrical and electronic devices. EE engineers apply principles of basic science and technology to improve the living standards of the humanity by designing and implementing compex electrical and electronic systems. They do research and development to constantly advance the state of the engineering knowledge in many areas such as integrated electronics, microwave circuits, electromagnetic materials, signal processors, power electronics, computer designs, power and energy, to deliver systems in microelectronics, electromagnetics, imaging, telecommunication networks, power generation, transmission and distribution. EE Engineers often work with engineers from other disciplines to solve multidisciplinary problems.
The rest of the 21st century will witness the era of automated machine-to-machine systems, which sense the environment, communicate, and run tasks efficiently on sustainable energy sources in fully connected networks. Therefore, major research and development activities in engineering involves electrical and electronic systems. EE Engineers with both hard and soft skills will continue to be at the center of the technology revolution. The demand for EE engineers is thus at an all time highest level around the world. EE engineers will, on one hand, design electronic micro- and nano-systems with smaller size, more features, more efficient execution, and sustainable power sources; on the other hand, they will deliver larger, more complex, smarter power and communication networks with high societal impact.
METU NCC provides a favorable environment for educating tomorrow's EE Engineering leaders, with modern classroom and laboratory facilities, faculty members driving cutting edge research, highly qualified staff, and student centered teaching philosophy. Due to a friendly and dynamic university climate, no technical question from any student remains unanswered. The curriculum is regularly updated with new trends. Students are encouraged to deliver their senior design projects on relevant issues related to the grand challenges of the 21st century, and participate in early undergraduate research. The collection of hard and soft skills offered to the students of the METU NCC EE Engineering program ensures our students are highly qualified and seeked for challenging positions around the world. Graduates of the program are placed in competitive positions in international companies and graduate schools.
A graduating student from METU NCC EE Engineering can take up a position as a professional engineer in an international company. Alternatively, the student can continue his or her career in an R&D role at a research institution or a prestigious graduate university program.
