Electrical & Electronics Engineering
The Department of Electrical & Electronics Engineering was started in 2002 with an annual intake
of 60 students. The Department of Electrical & Electronics Engineering is stuffed by the right
proportion of senior and experienced professors on one hand and young and vibrant juniors on other,
fathom the alerting needs of society through research projects and industry institute interaction.
The majority of the department's graduates are employed in electronic, communication, computer,
power, oil & petro-chemical and consulting industries.
Excellent lab facilities are provided to familiarize all the necessary equipment and tools are familiarized in a detailed manner under this stream. Regular seminars and industry interaction programmes organized by the department helps the students to have a better idea regarding the modern technological trends and developments. The committed faculty and staff are fully geared up to deliver the best electrical engineers with core technical knowledge as well as professional skill, by offering value added educational experience through quality instructions.
Hence the primary objective of this department is to deliver the best electrical engineers emphasizing their role in research, design, implement and improvement of electrical systems, with an acuity in issues including teamwork, leadership, safety, ethics, service, economics etc. in professional organizations.
The concept of imparting knowledge itself have attained a multidimensional shape. With development of high-speed internet facility and its easy accesses to the common people, learners learning methodology challenged the conventional methods. As far as engineering education is concerned, it is a sector where the teaching learning process get subjected to changes quickly.
Electrical Engineering is most sought after branch of engineering which by its own merit overcomes many of the disadvantages in the engineering system as such. This sector is able to produce job opportunities consistently on a linear scale. The syllabus is updated and trendy without any sacrifice in basics. From the early 2000 the Branch is renamed as Electrical and Electronics Engineering. B-Tech in Electrical Engineering at Mar Baselios Christian College of Engineering and Technology was instrumental in graduating 12 batches since its inception in 2001. The Branch has a bunch of senior faculty members who are specialized in different M-Tech streams like Power Electronics, Power Systems, Energy Systems, Instrumentation, Control systems, Machines etc. Few many of the faculty members are doing their Phd. We have state of art lab facilities in Machines, Measurements and Instrumentation, Power systems, Control systems, Microprocessors and Controllers etc. which will give the students an experience at par with Industry.
Coming to the challenges faced by the Engineering students – Lack of employability skills, shortage of new job opportunities in different engineering sectors within the country and quality of education imparted to them. The last two points can be done only at policy making level and needs government’s interference. As far as quality is concerned its primary responsibility lies with the University, in a University system. The rest depends on Quality faculty and quality of instruction.
The Department is keen to impart employability skills to our students so as to cope up with new challenges and responsibilities. The effort starts right from their first semester where students are analyzed not only by their academic profile but also through co-curricular activities. Efforts are continuously on to bring up their language to international level. Opportunities for students to co-ordinate the activities of professional bodies like IEEE, IEEE PES, ISTE, Institution of Engineers etc. help them a lot to groom up their leadership qualities. Most importantly our students are able to set their goals, which according to me “changes the direction of life of students”
The Department is able to inculcate a hardworking nature, sense of mutual respect, courage to take responsibility of their actions and above all we are successful in creating an insight about their own gifts to be utilized for a successful life. It is first of all problems for a man to find out what kind of work he is to do in this Universe;- THOMAS CARLYLE. I presume that my students are able to answer this once they are out of their course.
