The Department of Electrical Engineering is one of the core Department of the Institute.
The Department has highly qualified faculty members drawn from the premier Institutions of
the Country. The Department has been a pioneer in imparting Long Term and Short-Term Training
Programmes in the broad areas of Electrical, Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering mitigating
the needs of the Polytechnic, Engineering and Pharmacy College teachers of the Eastern region in
particular and the Country in general. The committed faculty members of the Department are actively
involved in research both in the emerging area of Technology and pedagogy encompassing the frontier
areas of Electrical Drives, Measurement and Instrumentation, Medical Electronics, Micro controllers,
PLCs, Control Systems and Innovative Research in Technical Education in addition to rendering consultancy
services to the Technical Institutions of the Country and handling various educational projects supported
by Industries, Governments and International bodies.
From the Academic Year 2005 - 2006, Department has started a full time M.Tech. programme
on Mechatronics Engineering to cater the growing demand of the Automation Industries.
To keep pace with the development in the frontier areas of Technology specially in the
field of system Automation, Control and Cybernetics the Department has developed well
equipped laboratories with state of the art facilities to impart appropriate practical
skills in Technical Teachers Training and to support Post Graduate and Research Programmes.
The Department has the following Laboratories:
Sensors and Transducer Laboratory
Advanced Control Laboratory
Microprocessor and Embedded System Laboratory
Internet and Computer Laboratory
Process Control and DCS Laboratory
Some of the important equipment available in the Laboratories include PLC, Servo Fundamental Trainer,
Microprocessor Controlled Stepper Motor, DC motor system, Direct Digital Control Training system,
PC-based Analog and Digital Motor - Control Teaching set, PC based Programmable Controller Teaching set,
Pneumatic/Electronic Applications Trainer for PLC, PC based Mechanisms, Robotics Training Systems,
Digital IC Trainer, Discrete Component Trainer, Data Acquisition and Process Control Setup, Temperature
Controllers, Microprocessor based Water Label Indicator and Controller, DC/AC position Control setup,
Linear System Simulator setup, Compensation Design setup, Relay Control setup, 8085/8086 Microprocessor
kits, 8051 Micro-controller kit, ADC/DAC/Stepper Motor interfacing, FPGA and DSP Kits.
The Department also have 35 Nos. of Pentium - IV Computers, Laser Printers, Scanner etc.
With the above activities the Department is poised to become a leading resource center of
the Institute to promote excellence in Technical Educational and Research.
