Electroencephalography (EEG) is one of the field in diagnosing g epilepsy. Analysis of the EEG records can provide valuable insight and improve understanding of the mechanisms causing epileptic disorders. In this paper, the fast Fourier transform (FFT) and wavelet transform are used as spectral analysis tools of the EEG signals. These methods are chosen because they provide time-frequency shifted on the EEG signals. Since the frequency characteristics are important information that can be observed from the signals, FFT and wavelet transform are among a the best methods in analysis of EEG signals. The comparisons between these two methods are also carried out. Result showed that the wavelet transform is better than FFT in analysis of EEG signals. A software for analysing EEG signal is also developed using C++ programming. The software is able to compute and show the results of the analysis signal data by both of the two methods in graphical form
