The Role of Electrical Engineering in the Development of a Society Pakistan is presently undergoing very rapid development in all spheres of life. It is being envisaged that by 2050, Pakistan will be included in the top 20 economies of the world. Likewise, the country has also witnessed tremendous social growth in recent years, and it continues to do more to cater to the social and environmental needs of its citizens. Electrical and Sustainable technologies have played a deep role in strengthening and uplifting the socio-economic stature of the country. Hence, in line with these observations, we propose to set “The Role of Electrical Engineering and Sustainable Technologies in Socio-Economic Development of a Society” as the theme of the Conference.
From the Global Positioning System to Electric Power Generation, electrical engineers have contributed to the development of a wide range of technologies. They design, develop, test, and supervise the deployment of electrical systems and electronic devices. From light bulbs and television to cell phones and GPS, modern advances in electrical engineering have illuminated, informed, and connected the world. For example, Wireless communications have ushered in a revolution in our daily lives. From apparently trivial domestic applications to some of the most sophisticated financial transactions, wireless communications have played the role of a key enabling technique. With close to 135 million mobile phone users, including more than 30 million broadband subscribers, Pakistan represents one of the world’s most rapidly developing wireless consumer markets.
