BEE with Specialization in Computer Systems Engineering
The specialization of Computer Engineering is a mixture of electronics engineering, computer science, and control systems engineering focusing on computer architecture and use of computers as an intelligent control device in computer based systems.
Rapid advances in microelectronics and computer science have created a need for a special kind of engineer with the range of expertise to make use of this technology in the design of computer systems and their real-time application in industry and commerce. The Computer Engineer integrates knowledge from both computer science and electronics engineering, thereby ensuring that they possess the analytic skills of the computer scientist and the development and design skills of the electronics engineer. This is made possible by the unique combination of subjects from these two disciplines within the Computer Engineering curriculum. The broad knowledge of programming and electronics coupled with the specialist skills in software and hardware interfacing makes the Computer Engineer immensely suitable for a wide range of positions within the IT industry.
Students are given a broad introduction to electronics including basic analogue and digital circuits through using analogue and digital electronics devices and systems.

BEE with specialization in Control Systems Engineering
Control systems engineering is the engineering discipline that focuses on the modeling of a diverse range of dynamic systems and the design of controllers that will cause these systems to behave in the desired manner. Although such controllers need not be purely electrical, many are and hence control engineering is classified as a subfield of electrical engineering. The proliferation of high performance and low cost microprocessors is making the actual implementation of a control system essentially computer based. The Control Systems Engineer possesses knowledge of electronics, computers and an intimate knowledge of the physical system to be controlled.
Electrical circuits, digital signal processors and microcontrollers can all be used to implement control systems. Control Systems engineering has a wide range of applications from the flight and propulsion systems of aircraft and ships to the cruise control present in many modern automobiles.
BEE with specialization in Telecommunication Engineering

BEE with specialization in Power Systems Engineering
The vital role that energy plays in our lives has become increasingly evident in recent years. The society requires abundant supply of energy. It powers industry and agriculture; it provides our transportation; it supplies many of our domestic and recreational needs. There is continuing need for widespread generation and use of electrical energy, because of its ease of transformation to and from other energy forms and its ease of transmission, distribution, and utilization,
To keep pace with expanding needs of electrical energy, through the development of ever more sophisticated power systems, we require the engineers with sound technical and engineering knowledge. In addition, the engineers need to be visionary innovators who design and develop environment friendly power generation and distribution systems.
The specialization of Electric Power Engineering is dedicated to the education of engineers for work in operational, engineering or planning functions in the supply side of the industry—that is, in power generation or power distribution. Alternatively, the knowledge imparted would allow the graduate engineers to also work with the manufacturers of power equipment like generators, transformers, power circuit breakers, etc. or elect to join the contractors who build power stations, refineries, and industrial plants. Still others, who are more interested in energy utilization, work with power electronics applied to drives and power conditioning.
