Technological development, as well as its applications and management, is essential for the creation of wealth in any country. Here, at the Department of Electrical, Electronic and Computer Engineering at TUKS, we are extremely well equipped to provide prospective engineers with the necessary training and knowledge to enable them to make a meaningful contribution in this area. Not only is the Department the biggest in the country, it also offers the largest number of specialisation fields. The Department has unique ties with industry and one of the advantages this holds for our students is the fact that they are in demand; not only in the local market, but internationally as well.
