Department of Electrical & Electronics Engineering

Overview

The Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering was established in the year 2003, offering B.Tech degree programme in electrical and electronics engineering. Initially the programme was affiliated to Kannur University with student intake of 60 and approved by AICTE, New Delhi. The programme is currently run with student intake of 30 under the affiliation of Dr. A P J Abdul Kalam Technological University, Kerala, after its inception in the year 2015 and approved by Government of Kerala and AICTE, New Delhi. The Electrical & Electronics Engineering is considered to be a core engineering programme in engineering science which serves as a starting point for careers in many engineering firms. It provides a sound foundation for people wishing to pursue a career in electrical engineering, communications, control systems, robotics or sensor systems, through a diverse range of theoretical skills and practical experience. The department is backed with highly dedicated, hardworking, young, dynamic and well qualified faculty members with very high infrastructure, articulated with state - of - art technology of the present times. The academic offer of the department is focused to cater the needs of emerging electrical engineers on the theoretical and practical aspects of electrical machines, control system, power systems, Power electronics, Electrical and Electronic devices, Circuits, instrumentation, machines design, electrical system design and estimation etc. Department library facilities are provided with good reference books in the field to encourage research among faculty and students. The department has set up laboratories with highly experienced, dedicated, well trained laboratory instructors and technicians to impart training on various aspects of electrical and power electronic devices and workshop for improving practical knowledge to the students. Every year the department organizes community development programs, National seminars, workshops and technical activity programs to enhance knowledge and creativity of students and faculty. The Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department is committed to delivering competent electrical engineers to the work place. They are outfitted with core technical knowledge as well as professional skills necessary to face the global challenges of the future. The highly committed faculty and staff are fully geared up towards this end.

CARRER PROSPECTS IN ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONICS ENGINEERING

Being the core engineering programme, an electrical and electronics engineering graduate has opportunities in almost every engineering organizations in the operation and maintenance areas in general and electrical engineering field in particular. A graduate in electrical and electronics engineering can apply for the post of engineer in the State Government, Central Government departments and public sector undertakings and private engineering organizations. Central government services like Indian Engineering Service (IES), UPSC, Central Power Research Institute (CPRI), IOC, BPCL, BSNL, ONGC etc., offer very good job opportunities for electrical engineers. The state Public service Commission, Electricity supply authority of the state, KSEB and other electrical power producing agencies need electrical engineers for their generation, transmission and distribution network, planning, design, maintenance and operation in the power sector. Electrical engineers are welcomed by IT industry, both software and hardware, IOT, Robotics and power electronic industries. Private Electric machine manufacturing industry like L&T, GEC, Kirloskar etc also require electrical engineers in bulk. Teaching in engineering academic institution is also another area that an electrical engineer can seek for employment. Dedicated and hardworking engineers can choose Civil Services Examination for acquiring IAS, IPS, IFS and Class A officer positions in different central government departments.
