Department of Electrical Engineering
Electrical Engineers are working today in all areas of our modern information society. Buzzwords such as the internet and the cellular phone, communication and navigation satellites, high performance computers, power plants and high voltage networks, renewable energy and robotics - in all these fields research, development and production innovation was strongly influenced by electrical engineers in responsible positions. Employment perspectives are excellent as not only in INDIA , but also in Western Europe and the United States of America, where there is a shortage of qualified electrical engineers. From the production of power in power plants and the distribution in high power networks to the customer with his PC in his house hold or office, it is electrical engineering that influences our daily life in mostly pleasant ways.
Electrical engineering thus is a very broad field, ranging from all aspects of information processing, power production and power distribution. The main areas are Electrical Machines, Electrical Power Generation, transmission and distribution, Electronics (including micro, opt and power electronics), communication technology, Microprocessors , Power systems, Real Time Systems, Neural Networks and Fuzzy systems etc. The curriculum of Dept. Of Electrical Engineering, PEC, is gingerly designed to provide engineering graduates, consummate knowledge and skills required for a successful career in the field of Electrical Engineering. The course is at par with changing technology and enables the students to easily manage to multifarious environmental teams.
The courses for the undergraduate program in Electrical Engineering is divided in eight semesters with 5-6 courses in each semester. The courses range from Electrical Power to Computer Aided Power System Analysis and Design, Analog Electronics to Computer Architecture, Digital Systems and Microprocessors, Programming Design Methodologies and Data Structures to Real Time Systems, Control Systems to Neural Networks and Fuzzy Logic Systems etc. Along with technical courses, Management Principles and Cooperate Laws are also taught to students to acquaint them to the industrial principles.
Throughout the four-year program, students are encouraged to use their creativity and problem solving skills to explore and think about the unique problems in the world of electrical and computer engineering. Furthermore, students discuss some of the ethical dilemmas that are associated with engineering in general, and how these problems relate to our Social commitment. The Electrical and Computer Engineering concentration culminates in the Final Year . Students are given a wide degree of freedom to investigate, design, and build a project of their choice. The course Major Project Design Course allows students to apply their newly acquired technical skills to a full year design project .
The postgraduate program in electrical engineering is being offered with three areas of specializations namely Power Systems, Power Electronics & electrical Drives and Control Systems. These specializations prepare the students for today technology driven in 4 semesters with 4-5 courses in first two semesters. The thesis works spans over the remaining 2 semesters for an extensive study in the chosen area of research work leading to a thesis to be submitted at the end of the ME program. The thesis topics are given preferences which have industrial applications. The course ranges from Advanced Power System Analysis, Extra High Voltage AC/DC Transmission, Fast Transients in Power Systems, Power Electronics Control of Electrical Machines, Power Electronics Devices & Circuits, Electrical Motor Drives, Digital Signal Processing and Applications, Discrete Time Control System, Dynamic Systems and Control, Advanced Design Techniques in Control etc.
The Dept. gives its full support to the students so that they turn out to be the best engineers with flying colors in their lives.
