La Facultad de Ingeniería Eléctrica es la segunda en antigüedad en la Universidad Tecnológica de Panamá. Sus orígenes se remontan a la entonces Facultad de Ingeniería de la Universidad de Panamá en el año de 1962. En ese año ingresaron a la Facultad los primeros estudiantes de la carrera de Ingeniería Electromecánica donde cursaron sus primeros tres años y completaron su programa de estudios en el Instituto Tecnológico de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey. En 1963 ingresaron los primeros estudiantes que cursaron su carrera completa en Panamá.
