ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONICS ENGINEERING
About the Department
The Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering is established in the year 1984 and it acts as a core part of the institute. Our department offers One Bachelor Programme in the stream of Electrical and Electronics Engineering and 2 Post graduate Programmes in the stream of Power Electronics and Embedded System Technologies respectively.
Our faculty members are highly enriched with Technical/Innovative/Leadership skills and they consistently equip themselves with updating technologies through continuous teaching-learning/training process. This faculty team is headed by Dr.K.Malarvizhi.
The UG and PG Programme’s curriculum and syllabus are periodically reviewed/re-framed in pace with global scenario in the domain of Electrical and Electronics Engineering. This process involves the suggestions from course-coordinators, module coordinators, Programme Assessment Committee members, Department Advisory Board members, Board of Studies members and this team involves experienced industrialists, University nominee, internal/external academicians, research members, alumni members and students. Our Bachelor Programme curriculum comprises major thrust areas like Electrical Machines, Power Electronics and Drives, Power Systems, Embedded Systems
The notable facilities available at our department are MODROB Laboratory, Project Laboratory, SALZER Innovation Centre, THICK INDIA Innovation Centre. The Ongoing Government funded Project are MODROB- Modernization of Electrical machines Lab, Grid Connected 200kW solar power station on C & E Blocks roof top, Grid Connected 50kW solar power station on B Block rooftop. Apart from this, around five alumni funded projects are ongoing. The mentors, department association members, professional bodies, clubs/sport team makes the students to effectively participate in various co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.
The department is actively involved in R & D, Energy Auditing and Consultancy Projects with various organizations/industries which helps the faculty members to train the students to innovate a product. The smart classroom and laboratory facilities provides supportive environment for the students and faculty members. The inter disciplinary areas of engineering can be learnt by students through choice-based credit system. The well-structured curriculum and proper placement training helps the student to place in government and private sectors. The Competitive exam training and project development skills helps the students to pursue higher studies in leading national and international institutions/ universities.
