Head of Department

The Electrical Engineering department offers B.Tech. Program in Electrical Engineering and was introduced in the academic year 2004–05 as one of the core engineering disciplines of the institute, with a sanctioned intake of 60 seats. The sanctioned intake has been increased to 120 seats from the academic year 2016–17 by considering the demand for electrical engineering in industries, the state electricity board, and the private sector engaged in electricity generation, etc. The Electrical Engineering curriculum is designed as per the New Education Policy (NEP) 2020 guidelines, benchmarks, and standards, as well as the recent developments in technology and imparting effective Outcome Based Education (OBE). The department is currently offering professional elective courses from different tracks, such as e-mobility, power engineering, control engineering, and embedded systems, along with regular core courses. Also, there are honors and minor degree courses in the e-mobility and control engineering tracks and a specialized minor course in sustainable energy. The students have the choice of opting for electives, honors, minors, and specialization minor degree courses. In the curriculum internship / industrial training is made compulsory to all students

The department follows best teaching practices, such as peer-to-peer learning, the use of ICT tools, flipped classrooms, project-based learning, etc., with activity or skill-based assessment. In the department, there are fourteen well-equipped laboratories covering a wide range of areas in the field of electrical engineering. The department has well-experienced and qualified faculty members & supporting staff.

Currently, 25 faculty members are associated with the department, of whom eight have Ph.D. qualifications and 10 are pursuing Ph.D. There were three Gold Medalists under Shivaji University, and many students have appeared on the merit list of Shivaji University. The students are performing well in the autonomous curriculum and maintaining good academic track records. Our graduates are industry-ready engineers and placed in well-reputed organizations. The department have received a grant of Rs. 15, 05,334/- under MODROB Rural scheme for the academic year 2019–20. The current alumni strength is about 1200+, all of whom are successfully working and few become entrepreneurs across the globe. The students of Electrical Engineering are regularly participating in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities apart from the curricular activities. There is Electrical Engineering Student Association (EESA) which periodically organizing events to promote talents among the students. The department has excellent industry interaction and provides services like consultancy, design, and testing etc., to the nearby industries.
