The Department has a well-qualified, experienced, and dedicated team of 11 faculty members with specialization in various fields like Power Systems, Power Electronics & Drives, Applied Electronics, and Energy Engineering. Three of the faculty members are doctorates with Ph.D. qualifications and six of them are pursuing Ph.D. One faculty member is a recognized Research Supervisor by Anna University. Faculty members publish research papers in National and International conferences and journals.
The Department has dedicated and state-of-the-art laboratories to provide hands-on experience and support research activities. The Department has established Industry-Institute interaction, through which students undergo in-plant training, internships, and industry-specific projects in India and abroad during their course of study. The Department holds the credit of consistently producing a good number of students with university rank, every academic year and also bags a good placement record.
Based on the need of the hour, ‘Value Added Certificate (VAC) programs’ are designed by the department and are offered to students of all years. To add a feather in the cap of the department, the VAC program designed for third-year students in view to enhance the employability skills of students, has been approved by Anna University and considered for ‘Two Credits’.
The department Students continuously prove their talents by winning a number of prizes, taking part in various technical and non-technical competitions conducted by different colleges and universities such as Texas, Techgim, MegaATV, PMI Gamethon, PALS, ETCampus, MTXHackathon Olympics, IPAS&NVC Codathon.
