Development partnerships in higher education programme delphe l.jpg
Development Partnerships in Higher Education programme (DelPHE)

  • The UK Government's Department for International Development (DFID) through the British Council is supporting a new Development Partnerships in Higher Education programme (DelPHE).

  • The objective of this programme is to address the Millennium Development Goals through the partnerships between Higher Education Institutions in the UK (HEIs) and 25 bilateral focus countries.


Progress so far l.jpg
Progress so far (DelPHE)

  • 1st set of activities: Started the project, December 2006

  • 2nd set of activities: March – April 2007

  • Training for lecturers and computer science students in digital electronics

  • Further information published at the following website:

  • http://www.uobkupartnership.talktalk.net


Overview l.jpg
OVERVIEW (DelPHE)

  • Electrical Engineers design systems that have two main objectives:

  • To generate, distribute, store and convert energy between various forms

  • To gather, store, process, transport and present information


Subdivisions of electrical engineering l.jpg

  • Power Systems

    These systems convert energy to and from electrical form and transmit energy over long distances, distribute energy to dwellings' and industrial complexes.

    These systems are composed of generators, transformers, distribution lines, motors and other elements.

    2. Control Systems

    These systems gather information with sensors and use electrical energy to control physical process.

3. Electronics (DelPHE)

Electronics is the study and application of materials, devices, and circuits used in amplifying and switching electrical signals.

  • The most important electronic devices are transistors of various kinds.

  • In 1947, Transistor was invented in Bell labs in the USA.

  • It was as tall as the face of wristwatch.

  • In November 2001, another Bell lab team has built a transistor from a single Molecule - small enough to fit about 10 million transistors on the head of a pin.

4. Communication Systems

Transport information in electrical form. Cellular telephones, radio, satellite television and the internet are examples of communication systems.

5. Computer Systems

Process and store information in digital form. Computer is an essential electronic equipment in the lives of people at the developed world.

6. Electromagnetics

Electromagnetics is the study and application of electrical and magnetic fields. Cellular telephones and television antenna and magnetron (a device in the oven) are examples of electromagnetic devices.

7. Signal Processing

Is concerned with information-bearing electrical signal. Often, the objective is to extract useful information from electrical signals derived from sensors. Application are machine vision and robotics.


Reasons for studying electrical engineering l.jpg
Reasons for studying electrical engineering (DelPHE)

  • To have a broad enough knowledge base so that one can design project in their fields.

  • To be able to operate and maintain electrical systems

  • To be able to communicate with electrical engineering consultants

  • To become an electrical engineer.

    Running the department l.jpg
    Running the department (DelPHE)

    • Strong leadership is required

    • Subject leaders are required

    • Update curriculum by integrating advances in technologies

    • Research and consultancies

    • Close collaboration with other universities and colleges

    • Offer courses, which are shared with local colleges.


    Projects l.jpg
    PROJECTS (DelPHE)

    • An essential part of any engineering course.

    • The students must complete some small project in earlier years and a major project during the final year

    • Students will also learn how to apply project management in their projects.
