KNUST Electrical Engineering

Below is a comprehensive review of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, KNUST Electrical/Electronic Engineering Course Outline

The B. Sc. Electrical/Electronic Engineering programme is a flexible, broad-based major that provides a rigorous grounding in the analytical and experimental foundations of electrical engineering. Students are allowed substantial flexibility in crafting an individualized program by choosing electives that reflects his or her interests and career goals.

There are several courses spread out across the various years under department to make learning efficient. These are mostly course related subjects and topics of interest but interlased with a few indirectly related subjects to educate in various aspects in order to produce a versatile graduate.

Entry Requirements

To be eligible to read the programme, each individual must pass at least one of the following categories of requirements:

  • Passes in THREE (3) SSS CORE SUBJECTS: English Language, Mathematics and Integrated Science; and
  • Passes in THREE (3) SSS ELECTIVE SUBJECTS: Physics, Mathematics AND  EITHER Chemistry, Applied Electricity OR Electronics.

OR

  • CREDITS IN at least FIVE (5) G.C.E. ORDINARY LEVEL SUBJECTS, including English Language, Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry; and
  • PASSES AT G.C.E ADVANCED LEVEL in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry.

NB: These entry requirements apply for both Electrical and Telecommunication Engineering
