Program Description:

The Electrical Engineering (EE) program is one of the largest programs in the Bahir Dar Institute of Technology of Bahir Dar University. The Program has been serving the country and also advanced the University’s reputation. It has trained a significant number of Electrical Engineers in the country who are playing key roles in the various sectors of development in the country. The core strategy of the Program is to pursue its vision and mission to enhance its research, linkage with industry, academic and scholarly activities and become a center of excellence for its programs, thereby improving its eminence in national and international rankings.

Taking into consideration the requirements of modern industries the program has realized that there is a need to implement the following four specializations (streams) in the present undergraduate electrical engineering Program.
Communication Engineering,
Electronics Engineering,
Electrical Power Engineering,

Industrial Control Engineering
