Department of Electrical Engineering
About Us
The Department of Electrical Engineering has grown significantly since its inception in 1941. The year 2023 marks the 82nd year of excellence for both the University and the Department in academics, research and innovation. The goal of the Department is to provide quality education at undergraduate and postgraduate levels and undertake cutting edge research in various areas of Electrical Engineering. The Department also aims to develop active collaboration with multiple industries in the power sector, energy transportation and industrial automation sector. The Department has earned itself an excellent reputation in the national and global academic network. The Centre of Excellence for Electric Vehicle and Related Technologies (CoE for EVRT) and industry sponsored EV & ITS lab are the recent development of the Department. Currently, the Department has an annual undergraduate intake of 300 students. The National Board of Accreditation (NBA) has accredited the B.Tech. (EE) program up to June 2024 under Tier-1 format. The Department is also offering a B.Tech. under Continuing Education for working professionals with an intake of 60 students.

At the postgraduate level, the Department is offering three M.Tech. programs in Control and Instrumentation, Power Electronics and Systems, and Power Systems with a combined intake of 80 students. The M. Tech. programs in Control and Instrumentation and Power Systems are accredited for 06 Years (till 2027). The Department offers regular Ph.D. programs in various areas of specialization in Electrical Engineering. These include Analog Signal Processing, Electric Drives, Flexible AC Transmission Systems (FACTS), HVDC, Hybrid Electric Vehicles, Intelligent Control and Transportation, Optimization, Power Electronic Converters, Power Quality, Power System Dynamics and Stability, Power System Operation and Control, Renewable Energy Sources, Smart Grid.

The students are motivated for technical and creative activities besides classroom teaching and laboratory exercises through technical festivals like TROIKA, organized under IEEE student chapter and Renaissance, organized by the IET student chapter DTU. They are also encouraged to participate in various group learning and discussion activities in addition to the presentation of seminar and term paper presentations on an individual basis. Emphasis is laid on computer-based assignments through modelling and simulation of various Electrical Systems in well-equipped laboratories.

The Department has 47 experienced and highly qualified faculty with intense research and professional expertise and 02 Honorary Professors. Faculty members of the Department have been regularly contributing towards International and National Journals of repute like IEEE Transactions and IEEE Proceedings, IET, Journals in Electrical Engineering from Elsevier, Springer etc. along with Proceedings of National and International Conferences. The Department also generously contributes to professional activities undertaken by the IEEE and IET Delhi chapters. Faculty members of the Department have authored several popular technical books. Some faculty members have acquired patents for their research. The Department plans to have new laboratories for Bio-Instrumentation, Centre for Electric Vehicles and Related Technologies, Centre for Internet of Things, Distribution and Automation Centre, Industrial Automation, Photovoltaic and Energy Storage, Power Quality & Energy Conservation, Testing, Calibration & Standardization, and SCADA systems and in near future.

The Department strives for excellence in teaching and research to achieve eminence in all niche areas of Electrical Engineering. The Department of Electrical Engineering has developed into one of the best Departments of the University. The placement trend has shown that the students of the Department have been successful in getting lucrative jobs based on their interests in different fields. Top global recruiters such as Fujikara, Qualcomm, Mckinsey have offered placements to the students of this Department with a package of over Rs. 15 Lakhs per annum. Other recruiters from core engineering and allied sectors viz Texas Instruments, Thorogood, Deloitte, Vedanta group, Wipro, Tata Power, Reliance, Axtria, PWC, ZS Associates, Technip, Bechtel, L&T, United Health Group have recruited students from this Department with attractive packages. This consistent placement record illustrates the commitment and contribution of this Department to the success story of the University. The alumni of the Department are occupying important positions in both government as well as the corporate sector with many of them having joined programs of higher studies in India and abroad like IISc, IITs, IIMs and University of Cincinnati, University of California Berkeley, Georgia Tech, New York University, University of Michigan, Washington State University and University of Toronto.

The Department has been hosting International and national conferences, workshops and invited lecture series every year. The Department has the distinction of organizing 8 MHRD sponsored GIAN courses in the University. Many Professors from reputed Universities, viz. Prof. Saifur Rahman, Fellow IEEE and Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Advanced Research Institute, Virginia Tech, USA; Prof. A. K. S. Bhat, IEEE Fellow and Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Victoria, Canada; and many more delivered lectures in the GIAN courses. It is the agenda of the Department to augment the professional activities further.
