Electrical engineering is one of the newer branches of engineering, and dates back to the late 19th century. It is the branch of engineering that deals with the technology of electricity. Electrical engineers work on a wide range of components, devices and systems, from tiny microchips to huge power station generators.
Our life would be unthinkable without the use of electrical energy. The growing utilization of the electrical energy is a decisive prerequisite for a rapid development of industry and agriculture . The branch of Electrical engineering mainly deal with the generation, distribution , and utilization of electrical energy. As electrical energy required everywhere , opportunities for electrical engineer exist in every sphere of modern life from manufacturing to process industries , from robotics to embedded systems, from automobile to transport , from aviation to navigation. Work of Electrical engineer includes : Assessing the maximum demand of Electrical Power, Designing and calculating a prospective electrical installation etc. They may work on the design of electrical circuits , electrical machines, generation and distribution of electrical power , electrical drives and controls, for various application of electrical power station , the lighting and wiring of building , the design of household application or the electrical control of industrial machinery.
The department was started in the academic year 2009-10 . It has excellent team of experienced, qualified faculty and non-teaching staff. Department has a good liaison with industry. It presently has well equipped laboratories and excellent computational facilities. World class software like MATLAB, PSCAD, ETAP, MULTISIM, PSIM, Proteus, Lab view, MAGNET are available in the department to work on top-of-the line projects in various areas of electrical engineering. The Department also has excellent testing facilities in the area of high voltage engineering and testing of rotating machines. The under graduate course in Electrical Engineering was started in 2009 with the intake of 60.
