The Power Engineering specialization of the BSEE Program of the Department has been responsible for training and educating graduates in electric power engineering courses. The number of students attracted to this specialization has been consistent with employment opportunities in the CALABARZON area as well as in the National Capital Region.

To respond to the skills expected from engineers, the students, in addition to their basic knowledge in electrical engineering are armed with strong analytical skills and knowledge in:

Power Systems Analysis: The graduates are armed with the theoretical and practical knowledge to model transmission lines, power flow studies, and network calculations. The students learn economic dispatch, fault analysis, transient stability and time-domain analysis through MATLAB and Simulink exercises.

Power Distribution Engineering: The course covers broad topics in transmission and distribution engineering and planning. Students are able to design electrical distribution systems of industrial, commercial and residential areas.

Power System Protection: The course provides the necessary knowledge in the electric power system protection and also introduces the protective relaying.
