About the Program
A Joint Master in Electrical Engineering program between Palestine Polytechnic University and Birzeit University. The Program leads to a Master degree in Electrical Engineering in either Telecommunication or Power concentrations. The program is a result of joint efforts between three Palestinian universities (Palestine Polytechnic University, Birzeit University and Palestine Technical University-Khadori), representatives of Palestinian industry (JDECo and PITA), and four European universities (UoS-UK, ESTIA-France, TUCN-Romania, and RU-Bulgaria) in a project funded by Tempus–European Union. The Tempus project has equipped PPU and BZU with labs with all the needed facilities, software, and equipment to establish an up-to-date research environment.
The courses of the program will be delivered every semester alternatively between Palestine Polytechnic University and Birzeit University. All project partners will participate in the delivery of most courses and theses’ supervisions.
Palestine Polytechnic University (PPU)-Palestine, Birzeit University (BZU)-Palestine, Palestine Technical University (PTU)-Palestine, University of Salford-UK, ESTIA Institute of Technology -France, Technical University of Cluj-Napoca- Romania, University of Ruse Angel Kanchev-Bulgaria, Palestinian Information Technology Association of Companies (PITA)-Palestine, and Jerusalem District Electricity Company-Palestine.
