Electrical Department

The Department of Electrical Engineering was established in 1985. It was functioning as supporting department to teach the electrical engineering related courses in first year and higher classes of related branches. In the year 2010-2011 the course in B.E. (Electrical Engineering) was started with an intake of 60 students. There onwards the department started functioning separately and independently. The new building is constructed for the department. The department has well qualified and experienced faculty with industrial background. The department imparts quality education to students and suffice all the needs required in modern era apart from curriculum. The department organizes regular educational and industrial visits to various generating plants and electrical machines manufacturing industries to acquaint the students with latest developments in the field. The department has Electrical Engg. Association “ELECTRICON”, a student forum which provides an active platform for students to exhibit their talent and creativity. The students are exposed to knowledge era through organizing various technical quizzes, seminars, workshops and lectures from experts. The dedication of faculty and keen interest of students are producing good academic records. The department has well equipped laboratories with state of art infrastructure.
