Chair's Welcome

Welcome to the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the University of Sharjah, Sharjah, UAE. The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is one of the first departments in the college that admitted students in the university in 1997. Over the years the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering has established a reputation for excellence in teaching, research and community service.


The department continues to attract and hire outstanding diverse faculty members in critically important fields in both electrical and computer engineering. We are continually improving our laboratories with the latest technology and curriculum to meet the industry demand. We are working on developing better relationships with national and international universities and industries. 


Most of our undergraduate courses have laboratory components where the students are exposed to experimental learning. Our faculty and students conduct cutting edge research in key areas of electrical and computer engineering fields. The work of the faculty and the students is regularly published in most top and prestigious international journals and conference proceedings. ​ 

The ECE Department offers two undergraduate programs, one in Electrical and another in Computer Engineering. The programs are both accredited by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research (MoHESR).

 The two programs are also accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,

The ECE department offers, in addition, Master's degree​ in Electrical and Electronics Engineering, as well as a Master's degree in Computer Engineering and soon will offer a PhD program.

I welcome you to explore the wide range of exciting educational and research opportunities offered by the Department and described in more detail elsewhere on its website.
