B.E. | Electrical & Electronics Engineering

Course Overview

What is Electrical & Electronics Engineering?

Electrical and Electronics typically deals with the study of Electrical energy generation, transmission and distribution. The concepts of electrical circuits and electromagnetism are applied to analyse the complex problems arose in the power system networks. The origin of this field lies in the latter half of the 19th century when the electric telegraph was first commercialized, the telephone was invented and electric power distribution came into use.

As such, Electrical and Electronic Engineering is associated in dealing with many of the real-time problems in control and operation of power systems and electrical machines. This field pervades every aspect of handling information, from sensing and acquisition, through communications, networking, switching, processing, and storage.

Who should study Electrical & Electronics Engineering?

Any student, studied at pre-university level with mathematics, physics and chemistry as their primary subjects. Any student eager to learn and apply the concepts of electrical and electronics engineering to solve industry oriented electrical problems and provide socio-economic benefit to the society.

What will I Study in the course?

As a student in the course, you will study the various sub-fields of the discipline including digital and analog electronics, electrical power generation, transmission, distribution and utilization, power system engineering, electrical machines and drives, control systems, signal processing and power electronics.

Students will get extensive exposure during their project and seminar to the following areas: software simulation of power system, fault analysis, design of building automation systems, energy auditing and saving, power control circuit design, Microcontroller programming.

The objective of this course is to apply electrical and electronic principles to circuits, machines, power systems and control systems to develop solutions in the areas of industrial automation, green energy systems and smart grids which will help the students to contribute to project teams in the core and associated domains of electrical and electronics technology

What are the career opportunities after the completion of this course?/What will I do once I graduate?

Any student graduated from Electrical and Electronics Engineering is eligible for Higher studies, Government and private sector jobs (Core), placements in MNCs (Software) and Entrepreneurship.

This field pervades every aspect of handling information, from sensing and acquisition, through communications, networking, switching, processing, and storage.

Evaluation Criteria


  • The Continuous Internal Evaluation (CIE) is prescribed for maximum of 40 marks. Marks prescribed for test shall be 30 and for assignment is 10. The CIE marks for test in a theory Course shall be based on three tests and generally conducted at the end of fifth, tenth and fourteenth week of each semester. Each test shall be conducted for a maximum of 30 marks and the final marks shall be the average of three tests. However, to support slow learners, improvement tests will be carried out to help them gain the average. The remaining 10 marks shall be awarded based on the evaluation of Assignments/ Unit Tests/ written quizzes that support to cover some of the Course/programme outcomes. Final CIE marks awarded shall be the sum of test marks and assignment marks making a maximum of 40 marks.
  • In the case of Practical, the CIE marks shall be based on the laboratory journals/records (30 marks for continuous evaluation based on conduct of experiment, viva and report writing and one practical test (10 marks) to be conducted at the end of the semester.
  • The IA marks in the case of Mini Project (in 5th Semester), Projects and Seminars in the final year shall be based on the evaluation at the end of 8th semester.


  • Assignments are given to students after completion of each unit of the syllabus and comprehensively cover all of the important aspects of each topic in a particular unit.
  • Completing the prescribed assignments will greatly help students prepare for the internal assessments and the final exams. All the assignments will be evaluated and based on the performance of the students marks will be awarded for each course.
  • The Student Assistant for the course will neatly script solutions to assignments, and after due checking and correction by faculty, these solutions will be scanned and made available on the faculty webpage for all students to access and download.
