An Industrial visit was organized on 24th September 2019 for the III semester EEE students to Shimsha Solar PV power plant and Madhavamantri Mini Hydel power plant. The Industry visited was helpful to the students in understanding the basic operation of solar and hydel power plant. They also got an opportunity to interact with the officials to know more about the future perspective.

The department of Electrical & Electronics Engineering had organised an Industrial visit to TD Power Systems, Dabbaspete on 15th October 2019. The visit gave insight into various process involved in the manufacturing of AC Machines.

An Industrial visit was organized from 17thFeb 2019 to 20thFeb 2019 for the IV semester EEE students to Mangalore refinery & petrochemicals limited and Varahi Underground powerhouse. The Visit was very successful as the students got an opportunity to learn the working of hydro power generation and the elements of the power plant like penstock, tailrace, and turbine, etc.

An Industrial visit to Solar Power Park at Pavagada was organised on 13th November 2018 for 7th SEM students. The capacity of solar power park is 20MW with an area encroaching to around 40acres. The visit helped the students to gain valuable insight on the working and operation of solar power plant.

An industrial visit to the students of 5thsem, EEE was organized to Varahi powerhouse, Kadra Dam, Supa power house from 28th September to 2nd October, 2018.
