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.
âWell 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.
âThe 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.â
