The Department of Electrical & Electronics Engineering is one of the founding departments of SNIT and started functioning in 2011. This branch of study, formerly known as Electrical Engineering and is one of the core branches in Engineering. Electrical and Electronics Engineering is a field of engineering that generally deals with the study and application of electricity, electronics and electromagnetism. Its main concern is the science and technology for the generation, transmission, distribution and consumption of electrical energy incorporating the advanced technologies and covers a wide range of fields such as New & Renewable Sources of Energy, Control Systems, Microprocessors, Electronics, Electrical Machines and Signal processing. The curriculum is designed to cover all major aspects of Electrical Engineering, while allowing considerable in-depth study of specific areas chosen by each student. There are curricular add-ons in this programme to support employment opportunities in any of the above areas. Students also receive exposure to other areas of electrical engineering through a choice of electives.
The Electrical & Electronics Engineering department of SNIT aims to produce skillful and competent engineers that aim for great heights. Our vision is to impart students with high quality technical education, theoretical as well as practical knowledge through industrial training and well equipped lab facility. EEE department is honored to have well qualified and experienced teaching faculty with all of them having post-graduate qualification in Electrical Engineering with different specializations. All EEE labs are being controlled by zealous technical team with good industrial exposure. Individual care and attention is imparted to each student from their first year onwards, where all the necessary equipment and tools are familiarized in a detailed manner. This ensures individual involvement so as to experience the excitement of doing the practical by them. Regular seminars and industrial interaction programmes organized by the department helps the student to have a better idea regarding the modern technological trends and industrial work culture.
Though Engineer graduates are eligible for any sort of technical, management, administrative and public sector jobs, more than that specifically an electrical engineer can seek careers in power generation and supply, manufacturing, construction etc. They design, develop, test and supervise electrical equipment manufacturing. They have also been trained to handle responsibilities like wiring and lighting installations in buildings, automobiles and aircraft. Among the most challenging and in-demand tasks for electronic engineers today include developing construction plans for electrical lighting systems for skyscrapers, designing remote-controlled race cars, building technology for factories like robots that can perform welding etc.What is great about being an electrical engineer is that the training is so extensive that graduates may get a job in many different industries such as construction, communication design and manufacturing. Moreover, electrical engineers may take part in development and research as assistants to scientists and other engineers with an M.Tech degree.
