About School of Electrical Engineering

KIIT School of Electrical Engineering has been playing a vital role in producing engineers and Scientists of the highest caliber since its inception in the year 1997. At present, it offers Under Graduate, Post Graduate and Doctoral programs in Electrical Engineering to cater to the ever challenging needs of technical excellence in the areas of science and technology. The course structure and syllabi of each program are constantly revised to meet the ever-changing requirements of the volatile industrial market, keeping the essence of the core Electrical Engineering intact.

The faculty members are playing a pivotal role in shaping the School in all the desired aspects and grooming the students at large. Many faculty members have also been recognized for their exceptional teaching capabilities and research works nationally and internationally. From the inception, KIIT School of Electrical Engineering has a world-class infrastructure in terms of academic laboratory, research laboratory, and modern classroom.  Different laboratories are equipped with state-of-the-art hardware and licensed software from Agilent, Tektronix, Fluke, Yokogawa, De Lorenzo, National Instruments, IBM, HCL, Aplab, Zuken, Cadence, Math-works, Texas Instruments, Schneider Electric, Xilinx, etc.

Well equipped research laboratories are established as per the thrust area of faculty members which provide all necessary facilities to enhance the quality of the teaching-learning process, exploring multidisciplinary researches and consultancy in frontier areas of health care, transport, energy, communication and automation. Since long, specific research works and different training programs/ courses related to industrial automation/renewable energy have been conducted successfully.

The School has strategically partnered with different industries like NI Instruments, Siemens, Schneider Electric etc. to incorporate industry electives in the curriculum and to facilitate training /internship for the enriching of subject knowledge of the student. The value addition training and career augmentation services prepare students to meet expectations of industry demands. The school has been accredited by IET (UK), NAAC, NBA (Washington Accord) Tier-I,  UGC. University got the status of Institute of Eminence by MHRD and also listed in  QS (World University Ranking), NIRF, 301+ The Times Higher Education World University Ranking.
