The Departments of Electrical and Electronics Offers Ph.D. & M.Sc. (Engg.) by Research Programmes

The department has an R & D center recognized by VTU. Since its inception, the center has a good number of research scholars and guides conducting research activities. Undergraduate and postgraduate students are encouraged to do project works suggested by professors. Students are able to formulate the problem statement, experience the strength of solutions by analyzing the input data and output results. It is empowered by Professors with rich industrial & academic experience.  The thrust areas majorly include power systems, power electronics & partial discharge analysis.
