2 Mission of the Department To impart comprehensive and quality education and to develop innovative, entrepreneurial and ethical professionals suitable for a sustainable environment. To develop a reservoir of experience and knowledge and to share it with the stake holders in education for mutual enrichment. To promote product oriented and dedicated research for establishing a self-sustaining and wealth-creating centre to serve the social needs. To prepare the students for new challenges in the field of electrical engineering. To create and sustain an environment for critical thinking and problem solving. To strive to be at the forefront of Research and maintain intensive interaction with Industry and leading Research Centres, where students can be engaged in Projects, Training and Internships.
3 Programme ObjectiveThe curriculum for the award of B.Tech. degree in Electrical Engineering has been planned to meet under said objectives.1. The graduate student :a) shall meet the requirements of the local industry.b) have the academic background to pursue postgraduate studies at the international level.c) have design and development training coupled with Management and Economics background to face the market as an entrepreneur.2. The aim of the Electrical Engineering undergraduate program should be to prepare the graduates for entry level positions as electrical engineers for industrial, commercial and governmental organizations and also to prepare the graduates for continued learning experiences either in a formal graduate program or in continuing education programs. This aim can be achieved through a curriculum designed to accomplish the following five objectives:a) The graduates should be technically sound and professionally competent.b) To maintain a modern and effective curriculum that adapts to changes in technology and society.c) To encourage a diverse student population getting admitted in the program and successfully graduating from the program and function competently in a diverse work force.d) The graduates to be self-motivated and creative to succeed in environments where technical innovation is important.e) The curriculum in Electrical Engineering is based upon the engineering core subjects.3. Beyond the engineering core subjects, the curriculum should include a number of required electrical engineering and technical elective courses. Successful completion of the curriculum leaves the student prepared to embark on a career in electrical engineering or to pursue advanced education in postgraduate institutes.4. The objective of the undergraduate program is to educate students in science and engineering so that they can conceive and solve national and international technological problems in society. Social and humanistic issues have also been emphasized in the technical education component of the program to provide breadth in education. The students therefore will be prepared for practice, engineering design and hands-on experience throughout the curriculum and supported by diverse laboratory and field facilities to implement design ideas.5. Opportunities to enhance teamwork, written and oral communication, and self-learning skills should also be available across the curriculum. Students may be encouraged to promote the profession and develop leadership skills through involvement in honorary and professional societies, and participation in laboratory and design project activities. The faculty should have a strong student counselling program, which will facilitate individual contact with students to help them make sound academic decisions and understand the purpose of their education and the profession.6. The Electrical Engineering curriculum has also been included declarations of four interconnected criteria:a) Depth : To provide students with understanding of the fundamental knowledge prerequisite for the practice of, or for advanced study in, electrical engineering, including its scientific principles, rigorous analysis, and creative design.b) Breadth : To provide students with the broad education, including knowledge of important current issues in engineering with emphasis on electrical engineering, necessary for productive careers in the public or private sectors, or for the pursuit of postgraduate education in electrical engineering.c) Professionalism : To develop skills for clear communication and responsible teamwork, and to inculcate professional attitudes and ethics, so that students are prepared for the complex modern work environment and for lifelong learning.d) Learning Environment : To provide an environment that enables students to pursue their academic goals in an innovative program that is rigorous and challenging, open and supportive.
