Message from the Head of the Department
Electrical engineers use basics of physics, mathematics, electronics and electromagnetism to design devices that are powered by or produce electricity. Electrical engineers work on anything form small pocket devices such as mobile phones to large aircraft electrical systems. Engineers test prototypes to evaluate and improve the performance of systems. To satisfy the above requirements, in depth knowledge on Physics, Mathematics is necessary. Therefore students who are interested and enthusiastic in learning the subjects like Physics, Mathematics, and Electronics can opt for electrical engineering.
The future prospects of the EEE graduate are very wide and bright. The demand for environmentally friendly power generation, more sophisticate electrical and electronic devices, and cheaper and smarter products requires the smart work of electrical engineers.
Sample of Career opportunities are Industrial research and development labs like CPRI, DRDO, DRDL etc., Power Distributing sector like APEPDCL, Software sector like TCS, Engineering Services Exams, Power Generation Industry like NTPC, PGCL, Rail industry, Telecoms, Utilities industry, Pharmaceuticals industry, Oil and Gas industry like ONGC, Aerospace industry like HAL, Automotive industry, Chemical industry, Electronics industry etc.
The current industrial practices involve a lot of automation in every sector. The industry is looking at graduates who are well equipped with the industrial practices and can perform a good job once they are absorbed into the industry. Due to the gap between theory and practice the graduates joining the industry require up to about two years’ gestation period for them to show their input in the company, in many situations they end up leaving the company without giving any input in the organization or company. A considerable number of employers in the engineering sector experience challenges while employing engineers due to lack of personnel possessing relevant skills and experience. This gap is mostly evident in areas of practical and technical skills, the demand is also there for the generic and personal skills. This is according to the article "An assessment of Skills Needs in Engineering" by Connor H, Dench S and Bates P.
The curriculum of Electrical & Electronics Engineering is designed keeping in view the requirements of rapidly changing industrial requirements. Suggestions were invited from experts from different organizations like research organizations, professional societies and industries in the meeting of Board of Studies which designs the curriculum. In addition to the regular course work, certificate courses on latest industry practices such PLC and Drives were introduced as Add – on courses.
The department has MoU's with MNC’s such as SEIMEN’s India Private Limited, New Dawn Automation Private Limited for offering certificate courses on Drives, PLC and HMI. In addition to regular class work, classes for competitive exams such as GATE are also conducted to pre – final year and final year students. Students are encouraged to give seminars on latest technologies by researching latest magazines & journals. Students are encouraged to participate in co-curricular activities conducted at institutions of national repute.
Education should not be limited to the formal education but should accustom with the changing conditions to build personnel for tomorrow’s world. This requires study of the current scenario and continuous effort in the fields of science and technology. With this motto, we came forward with the idea of forming the ISTE student chapter i.e., “Indian Society for Technical Education” student chapter.Advantages of having professional body memberships
- Professional Development: it is never to early too plan student’s career
- Knowledge resources: stay abreast of what is happening in the field of electrical engineering.
- Team spirit and organizing skills
- Contact with experts: through guest lectures and online interactions with eminent personalities
To groom globally competent Electrical Engineers to suit the rapidly changing Industry requirements and with a spirit to serve the society by continually working as an effective bridge between the aspirations of the students and industries need for well-rounded Electrical Engineers with strong fundamentals and sound problem solving temperament.
The Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering of M V G R College of Engineering in tune with its vision would offer under-graduate program in engineering to prepare students for a successful career as Electrical Engineering Professional in a very dynamically changing industry by:
- Inculcating strong mathematical & computing fundamentals among students that form the baseline for Electrical Engineering solutions.
- Inculcating among its students the need for continuous learning and the skills necessary to continue their education, develop professionally and push the boundaries of knowledge long after their graduation.
- Inculcating among its students a deep understanding of expected professional, ethical and societal responsibilities.
- Inculcating among its students rich and reasonably comprehensive skill set with practical exposure in putting the same to use for problem solving in a team setting enabling them to be valuable contributors to the industry & society at large immediately after graduation.
- Providing a stimulating environment for faculty & students alike that fosters a culture of knowledge seeking and sharing & appreciation of intellect helping all involved to grow both as individuals and as Electrical Engineering professionals.
The department of EEE offers an eight-semester four-year programme of degree in EEE with a system of classification of courses. The programme offers Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) which mainly provides opportunity for students to have a choice of subjects within the programme against the fixed set of subjects currently being offered except for the limited choice of electives in the programme, with the flexibility to complete the programme by earning the required number of transferrable credits. The CBCS scheme provides student mobility within the country and even internationally, with transferrable credits earned at one institution.
To provide opportunity for the students to choose and to have portability in education, the department offers wide choice of subjects in the form of interdisciplinary and open electives to the students supported by the presence of number of diverse departments with qualified faculty members and an established culture of research and consultancy.
The first four semesters of the programme cover the fundamentals of EEE and the last four semesters cover the core concepts in the areas of electric machines, power systems and electronics in-depth. During the course study, the programme offers different subjects under core mandatory, foundation elective, audit course, core elective and open elective categories. The final semester project provides a platform for the students to learn and practice the recent trends in EEE. In this programme, students have opportunity to learn industry practices through internships and industrial visits.
Industry application oriented training programs for the engineering students would give employability to students so these programs are professional and placement specific. These kind of programs are to bridge the gap between industry and academic institution. The benefits of this training program inclusive of making students learn plc communication programming languages trouble shooting hardware and software architecture panel designing, knowledge of pressure and flow, fundamentals of PLC, HMI instrumentation etc., The training is beneficial in augmenting the skills and knowledge of students their by enhancing the possibilities to get placed in various companies.
