We Can Help You

I want to transfer to the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering of IBU from other universities. I have already completed a number of courses at my current University. Is this transfer possible?

The transfer is possible if it is done before the start date of the Midterm Exams within the current semester. Initially, you should visit the Faculty Secretary and submit the Transcript of completed courses at the current University with the corresponding Curriculum.

You must also fill out and submit the
Petition Form and

External Transfer Request Form that can be found here.

Our Faculty Secretary will lead you through all further steps in this process.

Which departments do Electrical and Electronics Engineering include?
Electrical and Electronics Engineering does not have departments. Our curriculum consists of mandatory and elective courses, so there is a way for students to choose in which direction to go.
How much practical work will I do?
Practical work is an integral part of the course and includes laboratory, fieldwork, and industrial visits. We use labs to develop analytical, problem-solving and team-working skills.
What labs do students work in?
Students work in well-equiped laboratories, including Electronics Lab, Embedded Systems Lab, Logic Design Lab, Computer Lab, and Innovation Center, where students can work in their free time. For a more detailed description of Laboratories, please visit the 'Laboratories' tab on the home page.
What are the job opportunities?
The majority of our students who want jobs get them within six months of the end of their course. Many get head-hunted well before the end of their final year. Our engineering degrees offer excellent and varied careers. Their analytical, team-working and problem-solving nature mean they are in demand from non-engineering sectors as well as in technical-scientific and engineering roles.
For further information who should I contact?

Internship Procedure

Internships for academic credit add significant work experience to a student's education. Students earn a total of 5 ECTS of academic credit for their internships. They gain valuable "on the job" work experience related to a chosen focus in electrical and electronics engineering applications. In addition, internships permit students to interact with professionals in the fields of work in which they may one day have careers.

Students must complete a 30 business-day (6 weeks) summer practice in a company working in the field of electrical and electronics engineering on a part-time basis (4 hours per day). If the company accepts a student for a total of 30 days (which makes around 20 business days), the student must work for at least 6 hours per day. At the end of the internship period, students are supposed to complete at least 120 hours.

The requirement for the acceptance of the internship is the Internship Coordinator's consent confirmed by his signing the Application form. Observations from the internship must be documented and presented in the form of a clear and concise technical report (Internship Notebook), which the student brings to the Internship Committee for evaluation. The company must send two more documents to the University's address via post: Company's Evaluation of the Student and The Internship Acceptance Form. The former directly affects the student's grade from this course, whereas the latter serves as proof and acknowledgment that the student has really done the internship.

Students are expected to learn about a real business and work environment and get involved in many aspects of the hardware development process. In addition, students are generally expected to:

  • Begin to work effectively as part of a team, developing interpersonal, organizational and problem-solving skills within a managed environment, exercising some personal responsibility.
  • Apply theory, techniques, and relevant tools to the specification, analysis, design, implementation, and testing of a simple engineering product;
  • Actively participate in, reflect on, and begin to take responsibility for, personal learning and development;

"Doing internship was one of the best experiences in my life."An internship student

The course "EEE 300 Internship" is registered in the 5th semester (1st semester in the 3rd year). We advise students to do the internship during the summer break between the end of the 4th and the beginning of the 5th semester. There are several reasons for this decision:

  • After the completion of the first two semesters, students usually do not have enough technical knowledge for doing the internship. Taking the internship in this period will not have the desired outcome for the student.
  • Postponing the internship to the summer break after the 6th semester means that the student can graduate in as early as September which may ruin his (her) plans for seeking an appropriate job or Master program.
  • Doing the internship before the beginning of the 5th semester gives the Chairman committee enough time to appropriately judge and mark the internship report

International Burch University helps students find the internship opportunities they will enjoy and from which they will learn a lot. The University can also facilitate the process of getting the internship opportunities in some domestic companies. However, the number of such available companies is limited and cannot satisfy the needs of all students from our department. Therefore, students are advised to fully engage in seeking the appropriate internship opportunity for themselves. The University is not obliged to provide a student with the company to do an internship but will always guide the student so that he (she) finds one easier and faster. The best practice in the previous years was to search for such companies in the student's birthplace or the place of residence and its surroundings.

The starting point for the Internship application is to fill out the application form and send it to the Internship Coordinator via e-mail, after which the form is signed and sealed. In the meantime, a student can collect the required documents stated in the application form. The student then brings the documents to the Internship Coordinator and they are sent to a company together with the application form. If the company answers positively the request, the student is required to submit his/her CV to the Career Office.

Senior Design Project

The Senior Design Project (SDP) course also gives students an opportunity to take on a large challenging project similar to the ones they will have once they are employed. SDP represents an independent study under the supervision of a Mentor.

Every student will, with a help and guidance from his (her) mentor, do a research on exploring and defining a potential study area suitable for a SDP. They will then identify a specific problem from the selected study area in electrical and electronics engineering. Results from this study are documented and presented in the form of a project proposal. If the proposal is accepted, the student then moves on the design and implementation of the project. The student will experience the process of conceiving, designing, and implementing a hardware project or hardware-related design project proposed. At the end, presentation of the results in both oral and written forms is required.

The following are more detailed steps for the implementation of SDP:

  • Submission of Project Proposals by the Faculty and Announcement of the Proposed Projects
  • Application for a Proposed Project, or Proposing Student’s Own Project
  • Announcement of the Projects Assignments to the Students
  • Description of Project Requirements (in-class meeting with Mentor)
  • Doing Research
  • Submission of Project Progress Reports to the Mentor - 1 copy
  • Implementation of the project.
  • Submission of Project Progress Reports to the Mentor - 1 copy
  • Implementation of the project
  • Submission of Project Reports to the Mentor - 1 copy (spiral binding, black-and-white)
  • Submission of Final Project Reports to the SDP Coordinator - 3 copies

Students earn a total of 5 ECTS of academic credit for completing the course “EEE 392 Senior Design Project” which is registered before the beginning of the 6th semester. In order to be eligible to register this course (and the whole semester), a student must show his academic advisor two filled forms:

Supervisor Appointment Form

and Undergraduate Final Work Proposal Form.

These two forms ensure that the student’s project proposal has been accepted under the mentorship of at least one professor from the department (Steps 1 - 3).

The student must then spend around six hours per week during the semester implementing the project (Steps 4 - 9). The time spent with the mentor (attendance) and consistency in implementing the project are highly monitored and evaluated. Therefore, the attendance and the quality of submitted Project Progress Reports are responsible for half the grade. This type of grading policy will ensure that the final results are obtained before the end of the semester, and not during the summer break with the lack of mentorship and possibility for the project to be implemented by a third party. The final results must be documented in written form by preparing a Project Report containing no less than 35 pages (Step 10). This report can be submitted until the last day of classes (or before the Make-up exams). Afterwards, three copies of the Revised Project Report (called Final Project Report) are submitted to the SDP coordinator (Step 11) in seven days from completing Step 10. The Final exam is in the form of presenting the final results in front of the Committee Members at the last day of Final (Make-up) Exams.
