Electrical and Electronics Engineering deals with the invention, design, development and commercial applications of electrical and electronics systems, components and devices. There is a wide variety of domains to which it applies. Among the most the well-known fields, just to name a few are, Electrical Power Generation and Transmission, Control Systems, Communications, Robotics, Electronics and Nanotechnology.
The department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (EEE) Program was started in the year of 2004 with an intake of 60, increased to 120 in 2017. The department is catering to the needs of the industry by training students to make valuable contribution. The Department is endeavoring to produce highly trained and capable engineers, who can take up the challenges of the real world. The Department focuses on uncompromising academic standards in imparting both theoretical and practical instructions with a view to prepare professional engineers.
The B.Tech (Electrical and Electronics Engineering) Program accredited by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA) since 2013.
The faculty of EEE has healthy blend of elderly, richly experienced and qualified young dynamic teaching and non-teaching faculty with institutional, research and industrial expertise. The department is headed by Dr. P Sridhar, with vast Teaching experience and is ably supported by 16 faculty members maintaining 1:15 ratio out of which three are with Ph.D qualification and fifteen faculty members are with M.Tech qualification.
The faculty strives to foster and encourage a teaching methodology that is both practical and theoretical in approach tuning to the requirements of the latest developments in research and industry in the field of Electrical and Electronics Engineering.
The department has well established laboratories with sophisticated equipment supplementing the academic needs of the students. The lab facilities are being upgraded from time to time, to provide adequate opportunities for the students to learn and innovate.
The department is actively engaged in research. The efforts are directed towards reorienting the laboratories to establish close relation with industry. The department has been organizing short term training programs, seminars, workshops, guest lectures by experts, technical & non-technical student fests regularly. The department is working for the improvement of Industry – Institute Interaction in terms of academics & research and also for the development of infrastructure to match the needs of the industry. The department is striving hard to attain & sustain as a centre of excellence in Electrical engineering education & research with a holistic approach.
The students are encouraged to present papers and to participate in seminars conducted in other engineering colleges/ universities. A variety of academic activities are conducted under the auspices of student’s professional chapters. Many IEEE journals are subscribed apart from subscribing to on-line digital access of all journals.
Educational tours and industrial visits are regularly organized to enhance the practical knowledge of the students and to keep them abreast with the latest technological applications in various industries so that their employability skills are enhanced.
EETA (Electrical Engineers Technical Association) has been established with an objective to infuse a technical fervor and make the student more innovative. It is conducting career developing programmes, activities to enhance the interpersonal and intrapersonal abilities of the students to bring out their hidden talent. EETA also organizes Seminars, Quiz Programmes, Industrial Visits, Paper Contests, Group Discussions, Guest Lectures, Career Guidance, Games etc. under its auspices.
Alumni Chapter is in existence and regularly interacting with them to get feedback with regard to academic, placements etc. matters. Their suggestions are taken into consideration in various developmental activities of the department. Many of our alumni are pursuing their higher studies in IITs and reputed universities, abroad. More than 70% of the eligible students are being placed in reputed companies in every year.
M. Tech (Electrical Power Systems):
The department offers two year full time M.Tech program in Electrical Power Systems from the academic year 2019 – 2020 approved by the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) for the students who have a B.E / B.Tech / AMIE in Electrical Engineering / Electrical and Electronics Engineering or equivalent. The course is offered by the department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering by highly qualified and experienced teaching faculty. Intake to this course is 18, selected through GATE / TS PGECET, common entrance test.
The curriculum is designed to achieve a balance between depth of knowledge acquired through specialization and breadth of knowledge gained through exploration. The curriculum also provides to create professional engineers, who can serve in the fields of core electrical engineering, information and communication systems, and other related fields. This program enriches the students in different spheres of instrumentation and control industries.
The course offers core subjects like Advanced Power System Analysis, Economic Operation of Power Systems, Digital Protection of Power Systems, Power System Stability and Dynamics, Renewable Energy Sources, Smart Grid Technologies, Reactive Power Compensation and Management, Hybrid Electric Vehicles, Restructured Power Systems, Swarm Intelligence Techniques in Power Systems, Industrial load modeling, AI Techniques in Power Systems, Power Quality, Power System Planning and Reliability etc. A dedicated project work is taken up by every student in third and fourth semesters. The project work is of high-quality basing used in current industry practices. Students are encouraged to carry their project work in leading core industries, research and defense laboratories. Many of such projects are converted into either products and or published in reputed research platforms.
Some of the laboratories at Post - Graduation level are:
- Power System Computational Laboratory
- Internet of Things Laboratory
- Artificial Intelligence Laboratory
- Power Systems Laboratory
- Industrial Automation Laboratory
- High Voltage Engineering and Solar Laboratory
This course deals with the state-of-the art techniques in system level modeling and computational techniques in power systems. The course also covers advanced topics in digital protection of power system which are very much needed for today's power system engineer.
