The Department of Electrical And Electronics Engineering was started in 2002. The annual intake of B.Tech programme in Electrical and Electronics Engineering is 60. The department is headed by Dr. Pailo Paul, who has over 40 years of teaching experience. The department is backed by a team of motivated, dedicated and experienced teachers graduated from institutions of good repute like IISc, IIT and NIT.
The Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering started the Post Graduate Programme in Electrical Engineering with specialization in Power Electronics and Power Systems since 2011 with an annual intake of 24.
Power System has been a thrust area in Electrical Engineering. But with the advent of Power Electronics devices, the contemporary Power System has changed and it took a new phase. The Power Electronics has significant role in various phases of power system. The generation of electric power using alternative/ renewable energy sources has become very popular nowadays. Though the extensive use of power electronic devices has adversely affected power quality, researchers have found remedial solutions to tackle power quality issues.
The Post graduate programme on Power Electronics and Power Systems has started with the idea of imparting the techniques of adapting the existing power system to distributed energy generation and its consequences. The course also includes recent topics like smart grid that quickly senses the abnormalities in power system and its “self healing” capability.
The primary objective of the department is to offer value added educational experience through quality instruction that prepares graduates for a range of career opportunities in today`s world.
To prepare the students to meet the demands of growing industries and to mould them into successful professionals, globally competent and morally upright, in the field of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, contributing to nation building and progress of humanity.
To make the students aware of the impact of Electrical and Electronics Engineering in the global scenario and the challenges of Electrical based industries and organizations.
To equip the students with sound technical knowledge and skills.
To impart quality and value based education enabling the students to meet the growing challenges in the industry.
To perform research and development in the field of electrical and computation, that enhances the competitiveness of the graduates, for higher studies.
The department is in the process of building a Research Centre particularly focusing on the areas of Power Electronics and Control. The research activities are aimed to assure a graduate from this department to creatively apply their thoughts from the principles of electrical engineering to solve problems in their chosen career path.
