The Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering was started in the year 2008 with an intake of 60 students. The well qualified and experienced faculties of this department are committed to achieve excellence in academic programs by enabling its students to achieve blending of knowledge acquisition and applications of such knowledge in real life situations. The department has good infrastructure with well equipped laboratories and an exclusive department library. Harnessing electrical energy is the challenge for electrical engineers. The power packed department inspires the budding electrical engineers with the potent idea of constructing generating stations, transmission lines and distribution systems at economic rates and to design, test and supervise the manufacture of electrical and electronic equipments used in electrical utilities, buildings, automobiles, air-crafts, radar, navigation system and broadcast and communication systems.
The electrical and electronics engineering degree program prepares the graduates to enter a dynamic and rapidly changing field with career opportunities in electric power, power electronics, microprocessors and controllers, integrated circuits, robotics and control, computer hardware and software. The demand for electrical power and electronic systems is increasing rapidly and electrical & electronics engineers are in great demand to meet the requirements of the growing industry. Electrical and electronics engineers are mainly employed in industries using Electrical Power, Manufacturing Electrical Equipment, Electronic Systems, Accessories, Research and Development departments which work on energy saving devices and Software Development. The specialization of faculty includes different areas like power system, Applied Electronics, High voltage Engineering, VLSI, Power electronics, etc. The department is associated with professional body like ISTE & has its students association named "EEESA". Various events like Technical symposium, Guest lecture, Industrial visits, Inplant training, etc are organized to impart technical knowledge to the students.
Laboratories in the department are:
The students of the deparment have visited various industries as part of their curriculum. Some of the industries are Kadaperi Tractional unit, 230 KV SS, Sriperumpudur NSIC Technical Services Centre, Guindy. The department also organized symposium "FAISCA 15"" on 04.09.2015 and it was inaugurated by Dr. P. Somasundaram, Associate Professor, Anna University, Chennai. Students also have done their internships in NSIC, Technocrat Automation Solutions Pvt. Ltd, Chennai etc.,
