Scope of Electrical Engineering
The Department of Electrical Engineering of VSSUT is one among the first branches to be instituted in 1956. While retaining its strength in traditional areas of engineering, the department grew with time, reflecting the needs of a changing society and established new areas of teaching & research in electrical engineering. The department is AICTE acrreditated.
The syllabi of the department has tremendously augmented with many advanced courses with focus on the following areas: Network analysis & synthesis, machine analysis & design; control engineering; Basics of analog & digital electronics circuits; microprocessor & micro controllers; procedural & object-oriented languages; and in-depth coverage of power systems.
State of the art infrastructure has been established in order to promote acongenial academic environment to impart quality education.
Sincere efforts have been made to implement the decentralized functioning in its letter and spirit. Student sub-committees have been set up who work along with the Lab. In-Charge, and staff attached to the laboratory towards up-keep and effective utilization of the assigned laboratory. Through devolution of powers, the administration in the department has been effectively made transparent.

Words from H.O.D.
The Department of Electrical Engineering at VSSUT is recognized among the leading centers of teaching and research in Electrical Engineering in the country. In every semester along with regular theory courses students have to take at least 3 to 4 laboratory courses which instill confidence in the student to handle practical problems in the field of engineering. After the fourth and sixth semesters, the students are sent for Industrial Training to various national institutes , National laboratories , industries and electric utilities all over India during the summer vacation. This gives the students the exposure to work in the industrial environment.
For the last several years the graduates of this department have been well received by the various sectors of the industry. Alumni from the department are enjoying very well respected positions in organizations in and outside India. The department is ready to provide the industry with another young dynamic lot of engineers well equipped with the determination and the skill to excel in whatever they choose to do.
