MESSAGE FROM THE HOD'S DESK
The department provides an ideal blend of youthful enthusiasm and core professional experience for the budding electrical engineering aspirant. The staff profile has people with specialization in all areas of Electrical and Electronics Engineering. The Department strives to provide a blend of fundamental core knowledge along with cutting edge developments to create an Electrical Engineer who can cope with the requirements of the Industry and also handle the demands of higher studies. Electrical Engineering is a core engineering branch which has spawned the other related areas like Electronics, Instrumentation and computer science. Therefore a undergraduate degree in Electrical and Electronics engineering will provide the student with many avenues for employment or higher education.
The department would like to highlight two important developments since inception . The industry is rapidly moving into an era of automation and the world is shifting focus towards renewable energy. The area of automation requires hardware with Electric Machines, Power Electronic Converters, Control system components like embedded controllers and PLCs. Our department is well equipped to meet this challenge with a one of its kind collaboration with SEIMENS India. The department has taken lead in the area of renewable energy by initiating setting up of a 250kW Grid connected Solar Power plant. This is one of its kind in educational Institutions of Kerala and will provide first-hand experience to the students from the department. The department has also initiated joint work with many Industries for providing the students with ample opportunities to obtain Industry exposure.
The department has well equipped laboratories in the areas of Electric machines, Power System, Control System, Microcontrollers and embedded systems, Power Electronics, Digital Signal Processing. These labs are equipped with all latest equipment like Digital Oscilloscopes, Variable frequency drives, Power Quality Analyzers, software packages like PSIM, Matlab, Mipower etc. to mention a few. The department is in continuous contact with Industry leaders and conducts frequent contact programs to keep the department abreast of all latest developments.
The students are encouraged to contribute in technical events, social development activities, develop good communication skills, contribute in individual and group activities, sports and cultural activities to mould them into good Indian citizens. The blend of good technical knowledge with equal measure of ethics and compassion is the aim that we strive to achieve.
