The unparalleled advancements in the field of Electrical and Electronic Engineering have set in a new revolution. This has not only helped the growth of other areas of engineering and technology, but has also provided a positive contribution to every facet of society. Today, an estimation of a country's development and prosperity can easily be evaluated by the energy it produces and its level of achievements in electronics, information technology and computers - all of which fall under the broad area of this Department.

The educational process in the Department is carried out by well qualified faculty, which consists of Professors, Associate professors, Assistant professors and two lecturers, besides full-time instructors and graduate assistants. In addition to teaching, project and research supervision, the staff is encouraged to perform research and developmental work, administrative duties and community service. The areas of current interest of the faculty are in: Electrical machines, Renewable energy systems, Power systems and reliability, Power quality issues, Power electronics, Analog microelectronics circuits and systems, Digital electronics, Integrated circuit design, Analog and digital signal processing, Digital systems, Computer engineering, Tele-communications, Microwave engineering, Satellite communication, Neural networks, Image processing, Robotics and Control. The Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department offers a graduate program leading to the Master of Science (M. Sc.) in Electrical and Electronics Engineering.

The distinctive features of the program are the strong emphasis on fundamental Electrical and Electronics, physical and mathematical disciplines, and the clear focus on Electrical and Electronics Engineering applications. The program is based on a careful balance of (core) and (elective) courses. There are (three) major core courses, (six) elective courses and a thesis. One of the core courses is (Advanced Engineering Mathematics). A strong mathematical background is required for the theoretical and simulation tasks covered in the core and elective courses. The given elective courses relate theory to industrial situations. The research leading to the master’s thesis is intended to be creative and targeted towards practical problems of Electrical and Electronics Engineering interest. The program may be followed on either full-time or part-time basis.

The graduate from the MSc in Electrical Engineering Program at the University of Bahrain will:

  1. Be successful in technical careers related to electrical and electronics engineering.
  2. Pursue post-graduate education in electrical and electronics engineering.
  3. Become leaders in fields related to electrical and electronics engineering.
