Electrical and Electronics Engineering branch started in the year 2013 with an intake of 60 students to add feather to the already existing 5 branches. Being one of the core and evergreen branches of engineering studies, it is widely accepted by the student community in the region and around the country. Presently, the department offers only under graduate (UG) programmes. The department under the visionary guidance of management has state of the art laboratory facilities as per the VTU and AICTE norms. A well experienced and qualified faculty are the strength of our department who are available round the corner to guide the students to achieve their goals, to motivate them to enhance their ambitions and to counsel them when they are emotionally down.
A full-fledged project laboratory is being under construction to materialize students’ ideas into mini projects/projects and to practice reverse engineering. The department has started the Association of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (AEEE) forum under the guidance of HOD and faculty members to initiate the following activities.
The following laboratories with well-equipped facilities as per the VTU and AICTE norms have been set up. They are Analog/Digital Electronics, Microcontroller/Power Electronics, Measurement and Circuit Simulation/ Transformers and Induction Machines, DC Machines/Control Systems, Power System Simulation/ HV and Relay.

Electrical and Electronics Engineering is one of the core and evergreen branches of engineering studies which started as Electrical Engineering. Most of the branches like Electronics and Communication Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, Applied Electronics, Electronics and Instrumentation, Information Technology have been emerged as specialization from Electrical Engineering. However, with the wide applications of Electronics in controlling and protecting the electrical equipment and systems, the course eventually got renamed as Electrical and Electronics Engineering.
Electricity has become the basic need for survival globally. From household to industrial plants, communication and satellite navigation system, electronic equipment, computers etc., all require electricity. Electrical engineering thus deals with study and application of electrical systems for use in these different environments. It equips you with the knowledge of generation, transmission and distribution of electrical power, electrical circuit design, electronics, instrumentation, control system, understanding electrical and electronic networks etc.The course also covers the study of electronic devices and circuits involved in measurement, instrumentation, control and protection of electrical equipment and conversion systems. Concept of computer and recent applications of computer based systems in design, analysis and efficient operation of power system, maintaining quality and security, also included in the course.
Electrical Engineers are needed in all manufacturing units. All major companies of public and private sector such as Electricity Boards, Large Scale Industries, Manufacturing Plants, Power Corporations, Hydro-Electricity sector are continuously in need of Electrical Engineers for their projects. Electrical Engineers also find job prospects in Design Industries, Production plants, Natural gas plants, Petroleum as well as in steel and chemical plants. Many premier Educational and Research Institutions regularly intake electrical engineers as graduate Engineer trainees and Management Trainees to work on research projects. Electrical Engineers can also get a job in major players in public sector such as Indian Railways, Armed forces (Technical Branch) and also in Thermal and Nuclear Power Corporation limited.
“Well experienced faculty and well set up labs at EEE department has helped me to achieve my goals. Various departmental activities and the college level co-curricular activities gave us the right platform to excel in the field of Electrical Engineering.
“The department of EEE not only takes care of the academic curriculum, but also non academic activities. I feel proud of being part of the first batch of the course which has instilled in me the confidence to face the challenges ahead.”
