The beginnings of today's Faculty of Electrical Engineering can be traced back to the year 1954, the year of the inauguration of the Faculty of Ship Radio Engineering inaugurated its activities at the State Maritime School. Three years later, it was restructured into the Faculty of Electrical Engineering.
The Faculty comprises 4 departments:
- Department of Ship Automation,
- Department of Marine Electrical Power Engineering,
- Department of Marine Electronics,
- Department of Marine Telecommunications.
The Faculty offers its students a varied and modern research and teaching infrastructure that benefits from the latest technological developments. Lecture halls that are equipped with state-of-the art audio-visual equipment and laboratories with new generation devices and instruments, as well as free access to the Internet, ensure excellent conditions for scientific research and teaching. The wide variety of modern laboratory equipment includes: a ship automatic control system simulator and a physical model of the shipboard electrical power plant, facilitating teaching, research and testing on new solutions in ship power generation systems; the GMDSS marine communication system simulator that is a complete, real console of this system, objects for real-life satellite communications, devices for prototyping electronic systems, as well as computer and network hardware used during the Cisco Networking Academy program, and more.
The EU financed project RIDAM has allowed for new laboratories at the Faculty of Marine Electrical Engineering to be created and equipped:
- Renewable Energy Sources Laboratory,
- Virtualisation of Operational Systems and Computer Networks Laboratory,
- Microwave Technology Laboratory,
- Satellite Radio Communications Laboratory,
- Optoelectronics, Photovoltaics and Fibre Optics Laboratory,
- GMDSS Laboratory,
- Electromagnetic Compatibility of Radio Communications Systems Laboratory,
- Computer Design and Simulation Workshop,
- Automation of Ship Energy Systems Laboratory,
- Measurement and Control Systems Laboratory,
- Microprocessor Measurement and Control Sets Laboratory.
The funds obtained from two other projects (MEiN and RID) allowed for further development and modernisation of the Faculty's laboratories.
