Program Educational Objective:
To prepare the students with sound technical knowledge and practice for the fulfilment of all industrial and institutional needs. To enhance skill set of all students by providing strong foundation in Mathematics, Engineering and Technology which enable them to face the Competitive Exams To obtain balanced education with solid understanding of ethical and professional responsibility that enables them to function well in profession of engineering. To mold students as good team players and lifelong learners.
Ability to apply knowledge in mathematics, science and engineering. Ability to design and conduct experiments, interprets and analyzes data, and report results Ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical health and safety, manufacturability & sustainability. Ability to function on multidisciplinary teams Ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems. Understanding of professional and ethical responsibility. Ability to communicate effectively. Broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental and societal context. Recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in lifelong learning. Knowledge of contemporary issues. Ability to use the techniques, skills and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice. Graduate who can participate and succeed in competitive exams. Graduate successfully engaged in electrical & allied fields as engineers & managers.
Electrical engineers develop and oversea electrical systems and equipment. They work with everything from power grids to computers and telephones to cars. Electronic engineers on the other hand look after and maintain electronic equipment. Almost all the industries are highly dependent on electrical and electronic engineering and hence this courseprovides ample job opportunities to qualified engineers. Like every other industry in India, the electric/electronic industry too has benefitted a lot from the de-licensing and de-regulations that the government has allowed.Now with exposure to global players and competition, the Indian companies have improved the quality of production and are growing to their true potential. This, in turn means better job opportunities for electronic and electrical engineering graduates. The industry has seen a reported growth of 20% and is expected to continue at the same pace in the coming years. Qualified engineers are getting absorbed across industries and sectors and will continue to do so in future.Since electrical and electronics engineering is a talent-oriented field, it gives high returns for a given initial investment.
Job Opportunities for Electrical & Electroincs Engineers
About the faculty:
Faculty members are from different specialization of Electrical and Electronics Engineering with a good blend of industry as well as teaching experience.
Our department has a privilege of having all faculty members with post graduate degree. Three of faculty members are pursuing research, one faculty member has submitted the thesis and two of our faculty members have doctorate.
Our department has 24 staff members including 16 Assistant Professors, 2 Associate Professors and 06 Technical faculty members. Our faculty members are divided based on the following specializations to explore their expertise in guiding students:
- Power Systems
- Recent trends in Renewable Energy
