About this guide

This guide is created to serve as a general and introductory guide for those who are interested, or are currently studying or researching in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. It contains selected resources curated by the librarians to get you started on the different topics in the discipline,

This LibGuide is structured as such: the selected resources are divided into separate sections of Books (including print and e-book) and eResources (includes e-Journals, online archives, and other online databases). A link directly to the resources is included, and in the case of print materials, a link to our Library Catalogue is included instead. Quick links to our library services and our contact details are featured here as well. 

Other than the resources mentioned above, this guide also includes the page Student Works and Faculty Publications, which will show you how to browse and search our institutional repository to find past student works and our faculty publications.

Please bear in mind that this is not intended as a comprehensive guide

Introduction to EEE

The word electroniks is derived from the Greek word Elektron, which means the study of behavior of an electron under different conditions of an externally applied field. The Institution of Radio Engineers gave the standard definition of electronics in the proceedings of IRE Volume 38 (1950) as “that field of science and engineering which deals with the study, design and use of devices which deals with the conduction of electricity through a gas, vacuum or semiconductor.”

The development of Integrated Circuits (IC) in 1961 was a great achievement in the field of electronics and after that rapid developments were made in the IC technology[1].
