Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) is a unique and extremely demanding field which
focuses on realistic aspects of engineering in line with the theoretical concepts. NFC has
launched an exclusive EET program in terms of practical applications and capability to grasp the
employment positions in different industrial sectors. Manufacturing industry, in Pakistan has
strong expectations on engineering and development. Graduate employability, as a whole, is a
big concern these days. One of the reasons is the contradiction of curricula with the expertise
skills required for the job. Creative advertising focused on acquiring scientific knowledge, but
offers little practical knowledge.
To avoid this contradiction of theoretical knowledge with the practical skills, NFC IET is now
providing an employment based curriculum. This EET degree has an equal focus on theory and
practical knowledge along with the realistic industrial skills. It will train students for handling
different electrical processes, their planning and execution, which would be equally beneficial
In 2015, HEC established National Technology Council (NTC) in order to meet the dire need of
a standardized degree. NTC is a regulatory body to ensure the highest standards of teaching and
training with the help of an effective curriculum for technologists. Further, it will perform
accreditation of all 4 year programs for students who wish to seek higher education in
technology through HEC & NTC recognized institution. A 4 year degree program is a path way
for brighter students to fulfill their dreams by advancing their bachelor's degree in technical field.
It is an internationally recognized degree, which is offered in all advanced countries like USA,
Canada, Australia, UK, Malaysia, and many more. The NTC is applying for the membership of
Sydney Accord. Sydney accord is global accreditation for engineering technologists of the
signatory countries, whereas, Washington Accord is for global accreditation for engineers.
BS Electrical Engineering Technology Curriculum
NFC IET is offering 4 years degree program in BS Electrical Engineering Technology at the
department of Electrical Engineering. The distinctive features of these programs are illustrated
- The program is based on Outcome Based Education (OBE) system.
- The program comprises of three years (6 semesters) of formal classroom education.
- In fourth year (7th and 8th semester), a student will register 15 credit hours of
Supervised Industrial Training and 03 credit hours of Industrial Project.
- In first three years, more emphasis has been put on lab work than theory classes. For
example, during any semester of BS (Engineering), a student takes 15-16 credit hours of
theory, and 2-3 credit hours of lab courses. However, in BS (Engineering Technology), a
student takes 10-11 credit hours of theory and 5-7 credit hours of lab courses.
To produce technologists possessing skills, tools and techniques necessary to solve broadlydefined
electrical engineering problems. The program enables graduates to develop expertise for
successfully accomplishing the tasks professionally and ethically.
