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 Institutions.

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.
