Course outline for Electrical & Electronics Engineering

Intending to study Electrical and Electronics Engineering and searching for course outline of it so that you should where to focus to read in your text books? If yes, then this article has got you covered!!

The Electrical and Electronics Engineering (EEE) is an engineering discipline concerned with the study, design, and application of equipment, devices, and systems which use electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism. Interestingly, it can be studied in Polytechnic and University.

It a course that require students to spend five years in the university. While one year is divided into two semesters, then the overall semesters that an electrical and electronics students spend in the university to obtain degree is ten semesters.

Now, let’s get to discuss with you the curriculum or course outline of electrical and electronics engineering.
