  • Computer Labs
  • IT Support Center

The labs in the Department of Electrical Engineering are built around the following key goals:

  • To provide an experimental foundation for the theoretical concepts introduced in regular class sessions. It is important that students have an opportunity to verify some of the principles & ideas for themselves.
  • To familiarize students with experimental apparatus and to provide hands on experience on the equipment.
  • To furnish a real world industry environment of how systems work in complex working conditions. The objective of lab sessions is not to get the “right answer” but to give students a flavor of finding solutions to the challenges at hand.
  • To acclimatize students with control systems of various automated industries and help them to perform simulations before they get to the application of theoretical work on hard ware.

The Engineering lab wing consists of three labs that cater to multiple needs of students. There is also Information Technology Support Center (ITSC) that is looking after the IT related matters of the labs and has developed an efficient networking system to connect five computer labs furnished with 150 desktops.

Computer Labs:

There are FOUR computer labs equipped with state of the art hardware and software resources which provide efficient IT facilities to students. Almost 200 desktops are available to students in these labs that cater to the IT related academic requirements of practical work. The labs are integrated by a central control office ITSC that ensure efficient working of the entire system. Latest internet facilities with maximum available bandwidth are also available for online research objectives.

Internet / Wifi

Namal College has access to the internet via PERN and PTCL. The internet is shared with the Namal community via Wifi network. The campus network is designed by ITSC team and they remain available to provide timely service both at campus and hostels.

ITSC Policy
