The Department of High Voltage Networks is considered one of the oldest engineering departments in the South Valley region, as it was established in 1989 AD with the beginning of the establishment of the Faculty of Energy Engineering.
Electrical engineering is of great importance in advancing technological and developmental proceedings in the southern Upper Egypt region, where the impact of the electrical engineer is reflected in all development plans and various engineering projects.
The Department of High Voltage Networks seeks to prepare students to meet the needs of the industrial sector, whether public or private and to contribute to the development of the national industry in Egypt. Accordingly, the department’s graduates have many job opportunities in various fields of development in all cities and villages of southern Egypt in particular and the various governorates of Egypt in general.
The department is also concerned with a strong focus on skills in the basic aspects of engineering mathematics, physics, electrical machinery, power electronics, power system analysis, power system protection, and high-pressure engineering.
Accordingly, this program prepares qualified engineers to work in the field of electrical power in electrical power plants, substations, high voltage networks, and transformers, designing, developing, and analyzing the performance of generators and electric motors and controlling them through power electronics systems.
On the other hand, the High Voltage Networks Department updates the program’s curricula to keep pace with local and global scientific developments.
The department’s scientific laboratories are also continuously developed, in which all aspects of electrical engineering are taught, to prepare the student for a distinguished preparation so that he can acquire the appropriate expertise in the field of specialization, in theory, and in practice.
Accordingly, the department’s graduates are qualified to work in all the prestigious job opportunities in the fields of electrical engineering.
