The Department of Electrical Engineering is a blend of teaching and research activities pertaining to both Electronics and Electrical Engineering. At present the Department offers B. Tech. and PhD degrees. The diversity is reflected in the breadth of theoretical and laboratory courses that are on offer and the research activities of the faculty members. The Department firmly believes in imparting a strong hands-on flavor to the courses that a student takes, and therefore places emphasis on the laboratory component, internships and projects.

The Department has an healthy mixture of young and experienced faculty members, all of whom display high levels of enthusiasm and dedication. Apart from teaching and research, the faculties are actively involved in organizing technical workshops, camps and visits at the Institute to create an environment conducive to experiential learning.

The student community in the Electrical Engineering department consists of undergraduate students and several PhD students. The research areas of the current PhD students include Image Processing, Optical sensors, VLSI, Power Electronics and Renewable Energy sources. Every year many of our B. Tech. and PhD students carry out summer internships at reputed academic institutes and industries. Approximately 20% of these internships are at foreign universities. The Department is very ably supported by qualified staff that helps in the smooth functioning of laboratories and other administrative activities.

Apart from the undergraduate laboratory facilities that are now in place, there are ample research facilities in the fields of Image processing, Fiber-optics, Biomedical design, VLSI, and Power systems. Sponsored research activities include projects sponsored by the Department of Science and Technology and other collaborative projects such as those with NTU Singapore and Electrotherm.
