Electrical and Electronics Engineering

 

Department of Electrical & Electronics Engineering

The department of Electrical & Electronics Engineering (E&EE), earlier known as Electrical Power Engineering, is one of the first three branches of Engineering started at MCE in the year 1960. At present, there are 6 Ph. Ds specialized in various fields of Electrical & Electronics  Engineering and four more are at a different stage in the process of pursuing the Ph.D. program. About 200 research papers have been published by the E&EE faculty till date in various international journals and conferences. Apart from the B.E. Degree Course in E&E Engg., the department also offers an M.Tech. Degree Course in Computer Applications in Industrial Drives. The department is recognized as a research center by the Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU), Belgavi and there are 10 research scholars with external registration working for their degrees at this research center. These scholars are being guided by the Professors of the department for Ph.D. and M.Sc.(Engg.) Degree, both Part-time and Full-time. Till now, four M.Sc.(Engg.) and four Ph.D. Degrees are awarded by VTU under E&E Engineering Research Centre.

The department has a large number of highly qualified and experienced faculty.  The department has received so far the total amount of about Rs. 1.80 Crores from various Government funding agencies. The department has excellent laboratory and well-equipped computer center facilities which are useful to the students, research scholars as well as for industrial consultancy work.

The department has all the required laboratories in separate area with adequate facilities and equipment to run the program specific curriculum.

The basic Laboratories of the department have been developed during 1960, at the inception of the college. The space provided for the Laboratory has been very large making for excellent ambience with adequate lighting and ventilation. In fact the machines Lab developed here has been one of the very large laboratories among the contemporary colleges. This lab includes very special machines such as Schrage motor, Ward-Leonard set, amplidyne, rotary converter, induction generator etc.

Laboratories have been subjected to modernization on a continuous basis to cope up with the modern state of the art curriculum. In addition, new laboratories such as Control system, Power system simulation, Power electronics, Microcontroller, etc. have been established as demanded by the curriculum updation. Separate facility is established for meeting the curriculum requirements of High voltage engineering and testing.  A unique power system protection lab has been established under MODROB scheme of AICTE.
