About Electrical Engineering

Electrical engineering is a field of engineering that deals with the study and application of electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism. Electrical engineering has now subdivided into a wide range of fields including power engineering, power electronics, control systems, instrumentation, signal processing, digital computers, telecommunications, RF engineering, and microelectronics. The subject of electronic engineering is often treated as its own subfield.

The Department of Electrical Engineering cherishes the hope that its graduates, and post graduates will be the leaders of tomorrow. Institute contributes to the industrial development and economic growth of the country by preparing a cadre of engineers and scientists, who provide both man power and support R&D work for industries.

 

Objective

School of Technology intends to focus on technological education, research and service that anticipates, and meets, the need of tomorrow’s world. It is expected that engineering graduates and post graduates from School of Technology will care about issues that can make difference whether these issues are health, security, economic well-being or sustainability of world and values.

The department of Electrical Engineering has been playing a vital role in producing technologists of highest caliber ever since it was established in 2010. The Electrical Engineering Department, PDPU seeks to establish traditions which will foster creativity and growth of excellence. It has the following broad objectives:

  • To provide the best possible educational facilities for training bright students for the career in Electrical Engineering.
  • Creativity and research develop technology linked with economic growth and well-being of the country, its citizens
  • To provide a creative atmosphere in which higher studies and research thrive both amongst the students and the faculty.
  • To organize a short intensive courses, workshop, and seminars on current technological developments which will be of benefit to the surrounding community.
  • To provide research and development consultancy which promote contact with and be of service to industries, to government and Civic Organizations.
  • To organize quality improvement programmes for faculty members from various engineering colleges.
  • To provide leadership in curriculum design and development.

 

History

Electrical Engineering department is one of the important departments of the School of technology which was established in the year 2010. Department started with only undergraduate program. After some years, M.Tech programme also started in Power Systems. Currently, department offers both undergraduates and postgraduates with experienced and dynamic faculty and, staff members. The Department has healthy mixture of young and experienced faculty members, all of whom show high levels of enthusiasm and dedication. Apart from teaching and research, the faculties has actively involved in organizing technical workshops, camps and visits at the Institute to create an environment conducive to experiential learning.

Seminars/Projects

a) Workshop on “MSP430 Microcontroller” August, 21-22, 2014
Department had organized two days workshop on Texas Instruments (TI) MSP 430 launch pad. The main objective of the MSP430 workshop was to introduce to the attendees the notion of this ultra-low power microcontroller and its potential applications. This was a big leap for our department when it comes to providing quality workshops to our students.

b) Expert Talk on “Advances in Permanent Magnet Machine and their Application” July, 08, 2014
Department of Electrical Engineering arranged an expert talk in the area of recent trends in electrical motors. Dr. Parag Upadhyay (Speaker, ABB Inc. Power Electronics Group, US Corporate Research Center, Raleigh, NC) explained the importance of electric motors in industries by comparing the percentage wise energy usage in small, medium and large motors. He also discussed about the rare earth and ferrite type of PM materials used in motor design. The primary objective of the session was to have the awareness among the students about the advanced PM machines and their applications.

The session was quite relevant and useful to final year students and speaker also found the audience curious to learn and know about machines. The expert also interacted with the faculty members about the academic and research scope at PDPU. He also committed to be in touch with the students and faculties.
