- Department of Communication Engineering (COMM)
- Department of Control and Mechatronics Engineering (CMED)
- Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering (ECE)
- Department of Electrical Power Engineering (POWER)
- Department of Biomedical Engineering and Health Sciences
Besides teaching and learning activities, the faculty is also active in research and development as well as providing consultancy services in the electrical engineering expertise area to government and non-government agencies.
The faculty has strengths in established area of instrumentation and control engineering, electrical power engineering and energy conversion, telecommunication engineering, electronic engineering and computer engineering. These research and development activities have contributed specifically to UTM and indirectly, have helped in improving Malaysia’s position as an industrial country.
