About The Electrical Engineering:
The Department of Electrical Engineering is playing a vital role in delivering quality education at undergraduate programme level. Electrical Engineering is an exciting and dynamic field. Electrical engineers are responsible for the generation, transfer and conversion of electrical power, while electronic engineers are concerned with the transfer of information using radio waves, the design of electronic circuits, the design of computer systems and the development of control systems such as aircraft autopilots. These sought-after engineers can look forward to a rewarding and respected career.
   

Major Coursework & Laboratories 

Electrical energy systems - encompass the study and design of electrical transmission systems, electrical machines and variable speed drives; high power electronic converters and high voltage engineering. This requires engineering on a grand scale, such as power distribution across Southern Africa.  Power generation from renewable resources, such as wind and sun, and electrical transport, such as battery electrical vehicles, are of growing importance in the electrical engineering field and postgraduate studies.
Control systems - range from the temperature control in air conditioning systems to the sophisticated automatic landing systems that allow aircraft to land autonomously in thick fog or to point camera systems accurately from satellites to target areas on the ground.  Students learn techniques to design control systems for both electronic (analogue) and computer (digital) implementations and also to apply the knowledge in other branches of engineering.

Career Opportunities
There is a huge requirement of Electrical Engineers in Government as well as Private Sector. All power stations, Power generation & distribution companies require these professionals. Career Opportunities are found incompanies like HCL, BHEL, BEL, Honeywell, Reliance Power, Siemens Group, Jaypee Group, SECURE, Cadence, etc. In addition, there are opportunities available as Assistant Engineer (AEN) and Jr. Engineer (JEN) in the local electricity board.
