About the Department:

The department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (EEE) is made functional with an aim to produce qualified engineers with sound knowledge in electrical engineering and a strong background in electronics. At present, it offers one undergraduate degree, B.Tech. in EEE. Initially, the department was established in year 2010, combined with existing Electrical Engineering department. It becomes operational as an independent department in year 2020.The department is offering an excellent academia environment to pursue B.Tech. in EEEand Ph.D. in experts available with department in specialized domain of research. This department also aims to establish itself as a forefront in R&Ds in the areas of Smart Grid, Power System Optimization, Power System Instrumentation, Industrial Automation, Smart Sensors, Robust Control, Image Processing, Digital Signal Processing, Industrial Communication, Biomedical Instrumentation, Internet of Things (IoT) & Cyber Physical System.The department owns the credit of three completed projects and five ongoing research/ sponsored projects of worth more than ₹ 52 lakhs, funded by Central Power Research Institute (CPRI), Bangalore, Ministry of Power (MoP), Govt. of India, and under TEQIP grant by NPIU-MHRD, New Delhi.These projects are sponsored in the areas of IoT and Cyber Physical System, Image Processing, and Communication System engineering.

Presently, the department has well-equipped state-of-the-art facility to test and calibrate the gas density sensor for SF6-GIS environment, supported under RSoP scheme by CPRI, Bangalore, Govt. of India. In this regard, a MoU has been signed between VSSUT and CPRI for the design and development of couple of state of art sensors for GIS application. In this way, the department has shown its deep involvement in industry-academia tie-up to solve some of real life for our society related to specialized domain of EEE in India. We are also aiming to establish different laboratories to augment the course works and enhance the experimental tests, validation, and research potentials such as Automation & Sensors Lab , RTDS Lab , CAD Electrical, Signals & Systems Lab, Image and Signal Processing Lab, Network Lab, and Measurements and Instruments Lab.

Our more than 80% final year students have already been successfully offered for job by various companies, viz., L&T, Bhusan, Adani, Jindal, TCS, Infosys, Tech Mahindra etc. EEE students put their footprint at national and international level competitions from IITs, ISRO, BARC, HAL and Russian Federation. This glorious journey is kept on continuing by the students to achieve new heights. This department offers outcome-based education system where, our undergraduates have opportunities to join and take the exposure of two specialized research groups, namely, “Smart Power and Energy Systems” and “Instrumentation and Signal Processing”. Many of our students are readily involved with Innovation and Incubation Centre of the university where, they not only get opportunity to get exposed to design and prototyping of their concepts but also learn skills to be established themselves as an entrepreneur in future. Further, three of our faculties have been awarded Fellow position by the Institution of Engineers (India), Life Member by ISTE, India, and Senior Member by IEEE, USA. The department holds one Patent in its credit; adapted one international edition book for Indian subcontinent, published one book, and also have credit of publishing numerous high standard journal papers by different publishing houses of national and international repute. Our faculties are actively involved in different working groups of international committees for the implementation of Standards and Protocols.

Words from H.O.D.

The confidence in managing new technology requires continuous learning through novel approaches supported with research and development work. Thus, the department vision and mission reflects this, and my department joins me in meeting this mission by producing knowledgeable and dedicated technologists to serve our country and humanity as a whole.

Through our practices we make every effort to make an impact on our students to inculcate these values and support the mission of VSSUT. I welcome wholeheartedly our alumni to join hands in supporting our endeavors by all means of interactions.

Our doors are always open to Universities, research organizations, industries and utility companies to team up with us in building valuable knowledge society foreseeing bright future.
