AICTE MODROBS project for modernization of PC lab of Electrical Engineering
Research and Development play a crucial role
in the development of improved products and processes related to electrical
utilities and industries. The Department has created a culture of it with
implementable outcome. Every year a good number of technical papers are published
in international as well as national journals / conferences.
Active Research is being carried out in the field of :
- Non Linear Control Engineering.
- Power System Dynamics.
- Image Processing.
- Energy Conservation.
- Machines & Drives.
- Intelligent Control.
- Renewable Energy.
- Smart Grid.
- Power system planning & Management.
- Power system protection.
- Power Electronics & Drives.
- High Voltage Engineering.
Scope of Electrical Engineering
Electrical Engineering formulates the basis stream of
technology that embraces the basis of all other allied branches including fundamental
Science. Diversification of the branch ahead into Instrumentation, Control and Electronics
etc. have still further widened the horizon of Electrical Engineering with new concept
of development to meet the national needs in the context of globalised economy today.
An Electrical Engineering student will be having the scope of taking professional
fields such as Electrical Equipments, Design and Development , Power Industry, Integrated
Grid System, Traction, Computer Industry etc.
Interested students can go for PG specialization in advanced subjects like Power
System Engineering, Electrical Machines and Drives, High Voltage Engineering,
System Automation, Energy Engineering etc. and other interdisciplinary courses by
VLSI, Robotics, Computer Science, Bio-medical Engineering etc. The student of
Electrical Engineering can settle up for a challenging career in the public /
private sectors like SAIL, BHEL, PGCIL, NHPC, NPC, BARC, COAL INDIA, CGL, NALCO,
Software Companies, State and Central Government services etc, which only reflects
the huge potential of the subject. They can also join teaching, R & D or Management
Electrical Engineering Education today is changing very fast which needs constant
development in the curricula and programme of studies in technical institutions.
With this in view, both the Diploma and under graduate courses in Electrical
Engineering have been thoroughly revised.
Electrical Engineering Department with rich traditions of excellence now has carved
a place of pride in the state. It has attracted the best and brightest among the
teachers with strong commitments, and students with glooming talent and perseverance.
Department of Electrical Engineering conducts national level seminars and staff
development programmes on a regular basis to extend its effort to update faculties
and students in the recent developments of technologies. A separate departmental
library is functioning with adequate books and journals for the benefit of the
students as well as faculty members.
In addition to the Diploma and B.Tech programmes in Electrical Engineering, the
department also offers two M.Tech courses: (i) a part-time M.Tech course in Industrial
Power Control & Drives since 2008-09 and (ii) a regular M.Tech course in Power System
Engineering since 2013-14. The faculty members of the department supervise Ph.D students
in the research areas such as Machine Drives, Power Electronics, Control System
Engineering and Power Systems Engineering etc.
The Department of Electrical Engineering also offers Ph.D course in different
specializations under quality improvement programme (QIP) as approved and
sponsored by AICTE, New Delhi from the year 2012-13.
