Electrical & Electronics Engineering

About the Course:

The use of electricity is fundamental to modern life and so without a secure supply, society in its current form would collapse. Consequently, the importance of efficient and sustainable generation, secure distribution, and intelligent user devices cannot be overstated. This will be a lifetime challenge, facing the next generation as traditional sources of energy will run out and new ways of generating, distributing and using electricity must be sought. Electrical and Electronic Engineers have a vital role in addressing this challenge.

Electrical & Electronic Engineering (EEE) is an established undergraduate course at the B.N.M Institute of Technology (BNMIT), with a history of more than 14 years. More than one thousand students have passed through this course and many of them have successfully emerged as captains in their respective fields.

Our course provides equal importance to theory and hands-on sessions. The classes are handled by highly hailed academicians. During the laboratory sessions, the students are aided with skilled technicians. Specialized subjects include but not limited to Power System Analysis, Power Electronics, Electrical Machines and Drives, Analog and Digital Electronics, High Voltage Engineering, etc. While the focus is on the hardware design, the students will also learn the foundations of program and complete the set of technical skills required in today’s industrial standard.

Special Features

  • The students will be taught by academics working on the cutting edge of research, solving the world’s biggest challenges.
  • The wards will meet their mentors weekly to supplement the learning from lectures and laboratory sessions.
  • Practical application and project work are a strong theme throughout our course. It is the best way to prepare the students for working in the industry upon graduation.
  • The first two semesters of our undergraduate courses share the same content. This allows transfer between courses offered by BNMIT in the second year.

Innovative Initiations :

Innovative teaching is a proactive approach to integrate new teaching strategies and methods into a classroom. It is regarded as the process to change teaching or learning activities that produce improvements in the learning outcomes. The teaching methodology is more student-centric. A primary motive of innovative teaching is to encourage students to engage actively in the learning process. When students interact with teachers and peers, they gain experience that is more practical and retain more information from a class.

The Department of EEE follows Innovative teaching methods that involve using creative methods and teaching-learning materials to ensure that each student is fully engaged in learning and is interactive in classrooms.
