The Electrical and Electronic engineers are at the forefront of the challenge to design technologies which make things faster, better, cheaper and more sustainable. The department is backed by a team of motivated, dedicated and experienced teachers who have graduated from good reputed institutions. They are a well qualified and experienced technical team who ensures an enriched learning culture. State of the art laboratories with latest equipments, well furnished and spacious classrooms, department library, seminar hall and experienced faculty contribute to create a learning environment that can trigger the knowledge and intellectual creativity of the graduates. The focus of the program is on the design and application of circuitry and equipment for power generation and distribution, machine control and communications.
We see educating the next generation of engineers as a key role. Our graduates and post graduates are highly valued by industry and commerce around the world. Our degrees are aligned to our respective research strengths. Our objectives are:
The Post Graduate programme on Power Systems was started with the idea of imparting the techniques of adapting the existing power system to distributed generation. The M.Techin Power Systems will give timely skills and specialist knowledge required to significantly enhance the career prospects in the electrical power industry. The duration of this Post Graduate Programme is 2 years (4 semesters).The first and second semesters are devoted to theory, seminar and laboratory sessions. The third semester is a blend of theory courses, Industrial visits and Mini project. The fourth semester is dedicated to a full scale project. Every student is required to submit a thesis/dissertation based on the project undertaken in partial fulfillment of the requirement for the award of the Master’s degree. The program goal is to provide an education that is directly applicable to a career in industry and is suitable for a new or recent graduate, as well as experienced professionals, who want to receive the necessary retraining to change careers. With the advent of power electronic devices, the contemporary power system has changed and has taken a new direction.
