The University of Dubai’s, Electrical Engineering Department offer a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering with concentration in Communication Engineering Program which is accredited locally in the UAE by the UAE Ministry of Education (MOE)

The Power and Energy Engineering Concentration Program Layout

The second concentration of electrical engineering is the power and energy engineering program. The power and energy engineering program focuses on preparing engineers who are able to analyze, design, implement, and maintain electrical power generation, transmission, and distribution. Power engineers are able to work in various government and private sectors that provide or maintain electrical power systems. The program trains students on various electrical power generation stations including traditional ones that relies on oil and gas resources, and stations that relies on renewable resources such as solar, wind, geothermal, and hydro power.

The program includes following category requirements:

Freshman and sophomore year

The first two years of the curriculum are devoted to the General Undergraduate Curriculum Requirements Program (GUCR) program that consists of courses which students take at the start of their program of studies at the university. GUCR provides a foundation in English, Mathematics and physical science that is essential to the study of engineering. In addition, GUCR offers courses in natural and applied sciences, humanities and the social sciences. Students choose among these courses in order to complete their general curriculum requirements.

Junior and Senior Year

In the third and fourth years, students focus on the subjects that form the core of engineering and introduce one to Power and Energy Engineering. In the Third Year students take courses in Electronics, Signals & Systems, and Microprocessors, Electromagnetic Theory and Communications. While CE students take courses in Probability, the power engineering students take course in Power and Machines. In the Fourth Year, power engineering students enhance their coverage of power engineering concentration with power system analysis, power distribution and smart grid systems, power system stability and control, and high voltage engineering courses.

Every student must complete a Graduation Project to gain practical engineering design experience. A set of Technical Electives courses will be available to provide students with the opportunity to broaden their knowledge in related areas of engineering, or to concentrate on a deeper understanding in an area of interest.

It is expected that students will have their respective scores submitted for evaluation prior to matriculation to facilitate a timely assessment of their scores and equivalent coursework for program planning. Students’ credits will not be assigned to the academic record retroactively. A maximum of 6courses (18 CH) may be exempted. Restrictions The University reserves the right to refuse certain credits if issues regarding the likelihood of success or progression within the program of study arise or if program requirements dictate. Certain departments such as English, Mathematics, IT and Economics have separate criteria for placement in courses to ensure that they possess critical skills and knowledge in the content area. Students’ programs and co-op plans are developed on a case-by-case basis. Transfer Students
  • All students must have a valid English Proficiency Score IELTS 5, EmSAT1100 or TOFEL 500.
  • Students transferring from other universities recognized by the UAE Ministry of Education should also meet all the requirements stated under admission requirements for regular students.

Attestation of Documents and Certificate of Equivalency All applicants for admission are required to obtain an Equivalency Certificate for their secondary school leaving qualifications from the UAE Ministry of Education. The attestation/ratification process is dependent upon whether you completed your secondary schooling within the UAE or outside the UAE. Applicants who hold certificates from the UAE All applicants who have completed schooling within the UAE and who hold certificates other than the UAE General Secondary School Certificate are required to get their certificates attested/ratified by the educational authority in the city where they did their final year of studies. For example, if you did your final year in Dubai, you are advised to go to the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) to obtain the required attestations. If you did your final year in Sharjah, you are advised to go to Sharjah Education Zone, etc. Applicants who hold certificates from outside the UAE Applicants who obtained their secondary school certificates outside the UAE are required to ratify/attest their certificates for all secondary school levels/grades (e.g. grade 10, 11 and 12) and provide Certificate of Equivalency by doing the following:
  1. The Ministry of Education or the educational authority in the country where studies were done.
  2. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the country where studies were done.
  3. The UAE Embassy in the country where studies were done.
  4. In case the attestations couldn’t be done, as in b. and c., certificates must be attested/ratified by the embassy of the country where studies were done in the UAE as well as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the UAE.
  5. After obtaining the above attestations/ratifications, the student must provide the Certificate of Equivalency Issued by the Ministry of Education in the UAE.
If you are unable to provide the Certificate of Equivalency as outlined above before the commencement of the semester, you will be asked to sign a “Declaration Letter” agreeing to provide the Certificate of Equivalency. You will be permitted to begin your studies at UD, but you will be given a maximum of one semester to get the Certificate of Equivalency. UD reserves the right to take appropriate action against any applicant who cannot provide the appropriate documentation during this time period, which may include termination of the student’s enrolment at UD.
