Electrical Engineering

The Electrical Engineering Department offers two different programs:

The Diploma program is a two years program accredited by the Private University Council of Kuwait and endorsed by Central Queensland University, Australia.
The Bachelor program is a two years program accredited by Engineers Australia and the Private University Council of Kuwait and is endorsed by Cape Breton University, Canada.

Our Diploma and Bachelor programs are independent yet fully compatible which offers our students the opportunity to decide whether to exit their studies with a diploma degree or to pursue the Bachelor program after graduating from the Diploma.

In addition to completing the core requirements, Diploma and Bachelor students also specialize in one or more areas of Electrical Engineering including communications, control, electronics, digital signal processing, electronics and power systems.

Diploma of Electrical and Electronics Engineering

The Diploma of Electrical and Electronics Engineering is a two year full time program. It has been designed to meet industry requirements in the field of electrical power, electronics, control and communications at Engineering Associate and Technical Officer Levels. The Diploma aims at developing fundamental broad-based knowledge and skills in recognition, analysis, and fault finding of electronic circuits and systems as well as specialized troubleshooting knowledge in telecommunications, control systems, power electronics, microprocessors-based and computer systems.

The Diploma program at ACK is designed with high rigor to meet the local, regional and international needs and standards and is endorsed by our international partner, Central Queensland University, Australia and accredited by the Private University Council of Kuwait. All the specialty units of the Electrical and Electronics Engineering diploma are supported by extensive laboratory sessions.

Engineering Diploma Program’s General Learning Outcomes

Engineering Diploma graduates will be able to:

  • Apply science and engineering fundamentals and industry-standard hardware and software tools to solving problems.
  • Prepare and conduct tests in the practice area; analyze and interpret data.
  • Perform tasks and procedures in a supportive role.
  • Read and produce engineering drawings.
  • Understand and apply relevant standards and codes of practice.
  • Identify and apply engineering design principles of a standardized nature.
  • Appreciate and apply the principles of health and safety in the workplace.
