About the School

The Department of Electrical Engineering was started in the year 1982. The department focuses on utilizing its unbound resources to craft creative solutions to real world problem. The students are updated on the cutting edge technologies motivated by the faculty to pursue higher education. Our students have extended their brilliant academic record in various institutions of higher learning like IISC, IITs, IIMs etc. Software engineering is minutely interwoven in the curriculum with the students working in the CAD/CAM/CAE as well as C, C++, VB. The students of electrical engg undertake project work focused on latest development in core and associated electrical domain such as electric drives, static controllers, power system operation and control, VAR compensation, optimization technique applied to electrical system, CAD/CAM, telecommunication network, microprocessor and microcontroller based system, PLC based system, Instrumentation & measurement based system, VLSI & embedded system and some software related field. Students show their creative and innovative idea in laboratory and project work beyond the specified syllabus. The students are exposed to industrial environment during their summer training after 2nd and 3rd year in various reputed organizations like Rourkela Steel plant, National Aluminum Company, Hindalco, NTPC, TTPS, Gridco and many more. Students participate in various national level techno cultural activities and bring laurels for the institution as well as for the department. Techno cultural activities are organized by the Electrical Engg. Student Society (EESS) in the name of ‘URZAA’ annually with the active support & guidance of faculty members of the department.. The faculty members participate in Govt. sponsored project work in the field of Electrical Engg. The dept. of electrical engg is striving hard to impact quality teaching so as to make the students confident enough in shouldering their duties and responsibilities as power engineer in binding the nation.
