The department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering was started in the year 2001 with a sanctioned intake of 60 students. The department has been accredited in 2009, 2014 and 2018. The main areas of learning in this program pertain to the principles and analysis of equipment and systems used in the generation, transmission, distribution and utilization of electrical energy. Other areas of learning pertain to electronic devices and circuits used in the measurement, instrumentation, control and protection of electrical equipment and conversion systems. Students also learn concepts related to computers and the applications for computer based systems used in the design, analysis and operation of power system. The faculty members always strive to impart knowledge in the best possible manner to the students. The quality and standard of teaching is always a priority for the faculty members.
The department offers a UG (B.E) program in Electrical & Electronics Engineering and a PG (M.Tech.) program in Renewable Energy. The department is recognized as a research center by VTU and offers M.Sc. (by research) and Ph.D. programs.
The laboratories in the department are well equipped with instruments required for the experiments and for research work. The department has also received Rs. 10 Lakhs from AICTE, New Delhi, under 'MODROBS' scheme for upgrading the Power Electronics Laboratory.
The department regularly organizes industrial visits. The experts from industries and institutes enhance the students' knowledge through technical lectures on contemporary subjects in the field of Electrical and Electronics Engineering.
In 2019, intake was increased to 120.
