The Department provides basic courses to all engineering students on the principles of Electrical and Electronic Engineering to a depth appropriate to the generalist, and advanced courses to the specialist student in areas of communication and information engineering, power energy systems and high voltage engineering, electronics and instrumentation engineering and control robotics and automation engineering. Proper choice of technical electives offered from the four sub disciplines above gives opportunity for the undergraduates following electrical and electronic engineering degree program to further specialize in one of the below mentioned sub disciplines in electrical and electronic engineering.
The curriculum of electrical and electronic engineering degree program has been cleverly designed in such a way that interested students can also obtain a major specialization in one area while obtaining a minor specialization in another area out of the sub disciplines mentioned above.
The department has an integrated laboratory which caters to all electrical, electronic and communication engineering students. This consists of the following labs:
State of the art resources available in the labs for communications are; Network Analyzers, Spectrum Analyzers, RF and Microwave measuring Devices, Blue tooth Development tool Kit, Antenna System Demonstration and Design Kit, Fibre Optic transmitter and Receiver Units, Radar Development Kit, Noise Figure Meter, Protocol Analyzer.
Labs for Power, Energy and High voltage area have the following state of the art resources; AC/DC Variable frequency meter standard modules, High Precision Volt, Ampere, Impedance, Active and Reactive Power, Frequency, Harmonics, Noise Detection meters, High Voltage, High Current AC/DC generators, Impulse Generators, Partial Discharge Detectors, Insulation Diagnostic System, Karl fisher titrator and Oil test cell.
State of the art resources available in the labs for Electronics & Instrumentation Laboratory are; Logic Analyzers, Signal Pulse and Function Generators, Voltage and Frequency Converters and Counters, Agilent Advisor, Intelligent Universal Programmers, Industrial Embedded Computers, GPIB platforms and FPGA development boards.
Some of the State of the art resources that are available in Control, Robotics and Automation labs are; Digital power meter, Digital torque meter, Dynamic signal analyser, Isolated current measurement system, DSP systems, Flux2D & Flux3D software, 6 DOF Industrial Robot Manipulators and Mobile Robots.
As for computing facilities, the department maintains its own autonomous computer network while still being a part of the main University network. At the centre of this network are the three servers, each dedicated for a unique purpose: mail, web and file services. Postgraduate students are provided with a mini-network of their own, equipped with a file server and specialized software within the Department network. Software ranging from simple demonstration tools to advanced simulation tools in various areas of Electrical Engineering are available for the department members, postgraduates and undergraduates. The recent commissioning of a wireless link within the department provides constant connectivity to a number of roaming users with laptops and for places where wired network access does not exist.
Students are provided with separate computing facilities dedicated for the project and research works. This facility allows them to use some of the advanced simulation tools for their project and research work.
