    well-known for its engineering courses particularly its Electrical Engineering

    Hi.

    Is the second "its" in the following sentence redundant and unnecessary?

    Since this university always been well-known for its engineering courses particularly its Electrical Engineering, there are plenty of people wishing to pursue their education there.

    Thanks.

    Is this a quote from the university's prospectus? If so, you've either copied it inaccurately or there are worse errors than an extra 'its'.

    Thanks. I wrote that sentence to ask my question about the redundancy of the second "its" in such sentences.

    The second 'its' is wrong.

    'Since this university has always been well known [no hyphen] for its engineering courses particularly its electrical engineering there are plenty of people wishing to pursue their education there.'
