Electrical Engineering Department
Context and objectives of the training
The Electrical Engineering department offers training in the field of engineering sciences in the broad sense of the term, namely mainly: Power Electronics, Electrical Machines, High Voltage, Electrical Networks, Variable Speed Electrical Drives, Production, Transport, and Distribution of Electric Energy, as well as Renewable Energies and other fields useful for this engineer profile. It also aims to train specialists capable of carrying out a systematic approach to design and / or research and development. The engineer trained in this specialty is versatile and has sufficient skills to be operational whether in Industry or in doctoral training.
Since 2000, the Department has housed the Electrotechnical Research Laboratory (LRE), whose teams, five in number, manage research work in important and varied themes such as:
- Modeling of Electromagnetic Devices and CAD
- Modeling and Analysis of Electrical Machines
- Isolation Coordination
- The technique of isolation
- Renewable Energies and Active Filtering
Training Manager / Coordinator
Chairman of the CSD
Head of Doctoral Training
Targeted profiles and skills
The trained electrotechnical engineer will have proven abilities in analysis, design, modeling, simulation, instrumentation and control, system identification, diagnosis and monitoring of electrical installations and networks. It can also easily adapt to recent developments in the field of Electrical Engineering and more particularly in embedded systems, renewable energies, energy efficiency and new materials. Also, he must be able to familiarize himself with the latest developments in relevant software.
His in-depth knowledge of fundamental as well as technical and / or scientific subjects enables him to be used both in industry and in scientific research.
Regional and national employability contexts
The training course offers broad prospects for recruitment in different sectors of Industry and Research. The basis of this course was put in place in the 1960s by UNESCO experts. The programs are continuously updated every five years before the last reform and since then the content is improved every three years.
Until the early 1970s, engineering students had the possibility of being recruited on contract by various companies which offered them pre-wages and internships throughout their training.
Currently, and especially since the relaunch of ENP-Industry relations in the mid-1990s, engineers receive recruitment offers before leaving school. Several companies give them tests and interviews within the School itself or recruit them directly if necessary when carrying out their End of Studies Projects there.
Some engineers also manage to create their businesses (micro, small and medium).
The Department cooperates with various Algerian companies, public and private, or foreign under Algerian law as well as with Research Centers of which we can quote: the Sonelgaz Group, the Sonatrach Group, General Electric, Schlumberger,, Toyota Algeria, Siemens Algeria, Michelin Algeria, Electro-Industry, EDIEL, Schneider Algeria, Elseweedy Electric Algeria, Enicab, CREDEG / Sonelgaz, CDER, CRD / Sonatrach, CRTI, etc.
Terms of Access
The conditions and modalities of student access to the department are identical to all departments of the National Polytechnic School.
Admission to the first year of Electrical Engineering is carried out through a competitive examination followed by a ranking of students from preparatory classes. The ranking is very selective in view of the limited number (around 300) of candidates that the School can admit in the 1st year of the specialty, all fields combined.
