Electrical & Electronics Engineering is one of the fastest growing fields that involves study and application of electricity and electronics. It is a fascinating field, and one which could make your time challenging & providing enriching & rewarding experience. With challenges and with the rapid expansion of the technology sector over the last few decades, the demand for those who can create, understand and alter electrical control systems has raised accordingly. In the past few years, India has made impressive progress in the area of Renewable Energy. The Govt. has also initiated several programmes and schemes to promote the renewable energy sector. This means the sector has plenty of opportunities, both for employment and business. It augurs a bright future for Electrical engineers.
The Department commenced its activities in 2007. This department has adopted a teaching programme to develop in each student the mastery of fundamentals, motivation for learning, intellectual efficacy and self-reliance which provide the best foundation for continuing professional achievement. This shall prepare the students to deal constructively with issues and problems anticipated in the coming decades relevant to the technological development of our country in general and power/ energy sectors in particular.
The department has highly qualified and experienced faculty drawn from both industry and academia. The department has up to date laboratory facilities. The major laboratories are: Electrical Machines, Instrumentation, Power Electronics, Network Theory, Control Systems, Power System, Simulation and Project Lab.
The department has entered into collaboration with Mitsubishi Electric India(MEI), a global leader in Electric equipment. An Advanced Automation (Factory Automation) lab has been set up in the department to train the students & faculty on Automation. The lab has latest iQR set up ,FX Kits, SCADA software and Robot Simulator setup .This is the First Robotics Lab set up by MEI in the north India.
Training Certified by Mitsubishi Electric is provided to under graduate and post graduate students. This training will provide ample employability opportunities for students & consequently better careers. Moreover, faculty members & students attend webinars hosted by MEI resource persons on regular basis.
Department has also collaboration with Infineon Technologies under which “Infineon Centre of Excellence” has been established. This is first Infineon Centre in India Developed by Infineon’s Power Management & Multimarket (PMM) department .The main features of collaboration are:
- To provide platform to the students to put their knowledge into practice, expand their professional understanding and improve their analytical & problem solving skills.
- To endow with the opportunity to the students work on multiple joint projects with Infineon.
- The Infineon offers internship programs to the students.
- To provide guidance to the students to make innovative projects which can be adopted by industries.
- The main discoveries of Infineon are Electric Hybrid Car, Setting of charging stations at petrol pumps, e-drones in the near future that opens the job opportunities for EEE engineers.
The department has also entered into a MoU with Orient Electric Ltd, Faridabad to carry out consultancy projects. Expert faculty members of the department are currently working on projects of Orient Electric Ltd.
The infrastructure and lab facilities in the department are upgraded from time to time to provide adequate opportunities for the students and researchers to learn and innovate. Major softwares available for Research/ B. Tech. and M. Tech. Projects include Lab View, Matlab, Simulink and Digsilent for Load flow Studies and Power System Simulation. Necessary equipments are available for measurement, characterization and synthesis of Electrical, Electronics and Instrumentation Systems.
Academic growth of faculty is encouraged through their participation in various short term courses, National/ International conferences and seminars and higher studies. All the faculty members engage themselves in research activities and the department has 77 publications in National and International journals of repute and proceedings of seminars/ conferences over the years. 18 Research scholars are enrolled for PhD Programme in the department & 7 have already been awarded Ph.D.
There is a student chapter in association with Institute of Engineers (India) in the department. Various events like technical quiz, seminars, paper presentation etc. are organized under its umbrella.
