Research Activities in School

In addition to B.Tech.Programme, School of Electrical Engineering not only offers M.Tech programs with three nos, of Specialization i.e. Power Electronics and Drives, Power System Engineering, Power and Energy system but also Doctoral programme to cater to the ever challenging needs of technical excellence and current research in specialised avenues of Electrical Engineering. Based on area of interest in research of faculty members and students in the department, the three nos of Research Peer Group has been formed i.e. Power electronics and drive Group, Power system Group, Renewable Energy System Group. Each group is working on the defined thrust areas under leadership of two nos of senior faculty members. Interested Students of School of Electrical Engineering are properly guided by respective research group. The Department undertakes a continuous process of setting up experimental and computational facilities for taking up research and development and consultancy activities in various fields as also to produce state-of-the-art research output. Again, steps have been initiated by the School to explore the Innovative Ideas of students to “Start Up Company like Incubation Centre” for last two years. Such activity is excelled by a centre titled “Students Research and Innovation Centre” monitored by Peer Research Group.
