About the Department

The Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering was established in the year 2008 with the approval of AICTE, is set in an open, student friendly atmosphere. The Electrical and Electronics Engineering programme is duly approved by the AICTE and affiliated to ANNA University, Chennai. The Electrical and Electronics Engineering department strongly believes in working towards a goal which is not merely theoretical in content but practical in approach. The laboratories are highly modernized to reflect the rapidly changing trends in technology. The department has excellent infrastructure and is currently served by a team of well qualified, experienced and dedicated faculties whose specialization spans around major areas in Electrical and Electronics Engineering. The faculty and students have publications in the reputed National and International Journals

Electrical engineers generally design, develop, test, and supervise the manufacture of electrical equipment. Some of the equipments include electric motors; machinery controls, lighting, and wiring in buildings; radar and navigation systems; power generation, controlling and transmission devices used by electric utilities. Electrical engineering focuses on the generation and supply of Electric power, whereas electronics engineering is the application of electricity to control systems or signal processing.
