The Department is committed to produce well-trained electrical graduates. This department has received twice ISO certification, NBA-AICTE accreditation four times i.e.; in the years 2003, 2007,2013 and 2017, accredited by NAAC in two cycles with ‘A’ Grade in the year 2012 and A+ in the year 2017. The Department is conferred with autonomous status from 2010 and permanent affiliation with JNTUA, Anantapuramu. Department of EEE is credited with UGC 2(f) and 12(b) status to grab research funds from UGC, AICTE and DST.
The Department has well qualified and dedicated team of teaching staff members. A conductive environment exists in the Department for both students and staff. Quality technical education is provided to the students in the core areas of the field to meet the challenges of globalization with the state of art equipments and laboratories. The department arranges expert lecture by the eminent personalities. Teaching and learning process is strengthened with regular feedback, both oral and written, from students. Besides periodical tests, well designed assignments, regular tutorial and remedial classes are arranged whenever it is required. Department is having 10 well equipped labs with a worth of 1.3 crores. The laboratory facilities are periodically strengthened with addition of equipment depending on the requirements in the updated syllabi and the student projects. After acquiring the Autonomous status the department established Power systems laboratory and Instrumentation labs to inculcate interest among students in the core areas. The books and journals in the department & main library besides 65 computers with Internet connectivity (155 Mbps) along with digital Library facilities with NPTEL videos are available for reference to staff and students. The simulation and design software like MATLAB,PLECS, PSIM, ETAP, POWERWORLD, PSCAD, etc. tend to inspire and rejuvenate our students.
The major strength of the Department is that both the students and faculty are involving continuously in research activities, paper presentations at various International Conferences and Journals. To the credit of the Department has a credit of sanctioned DST-FIST (60.0 Lakhs), SERB(41.0 Lakhs), AICTE-RPS (9.0 Lakhs), AICTE-MODROBS (7.0 Lakhs),AICTE-SG (1.0 Lakhs). Also, National award for best B.Tech best project in Electrical & Electronics is received from ISTE for three consecutive years 2011, 2012 and 2013. Department of EEE is proud to announce that the students has participated in National Technical champion ships such as SMART HACKATHON for 2017 and secured award in the year 2018. They have also bagged award of UTKRAANTI-2018, a National Students’ Space Challenge (NSSC), IIT Kharagpur. They stood first in achieving District level Champion ship in TECH FEST organized by JNTUA, Anantapuramu.
The Department has established student chapter of IE(I) and IEEE to motivate the student community to organize events such as Paper presentations, Guest lectures, Group Discussions etc.The Department is progressing well to fulfill the vision of the Institute with a motto to provide a value based education with noble goal of “Education for Peace and Progress”.
