Innovations from EEE have a profound impact on the society. They do not just build things but they keep moving things forward with their innovations and research. It is the most interesting branch of engineering.
B.E. Electrical and Electronics Engineering covers both the field of Power infrastructure and Communication/ Network technologies which are becoming an integral part of Electrical Engineering. In addition, Electrical and Electronics Engineering covers subjects in Renewable energy sources and Bio-medical instrumentation. Technological advancements covering digital substations/ supervisory controls are also taught in the mainstream. Students are exposed to modern innovative areas.
Promising Careers And Great Scope
The growing Indian economy needs power engineers for the infrastructural developments. Organisations like PGCIL, NTPC, EIL, TANTRANSCO, TANGEDCO, Indian Railways and private power producers require Electrical and Electronics Engineering core students. Electrical Engineers are required for all sectors including IT who are the major power consumers, for energy management/safety operations of equipment. With Electrical Engineering being a part of almost all aspects of the world, Electrical engineers will be in demand always.
The industry and technology are constantly changing. The power and energy industry is undergoing a lot of changes. We are now designing smarter grids, replacing power systems and changing the way people interact with energy. The world is moving towards distributed generation, increasing use of renewables such as wind and solar, distribution automation, sustainable development, Electric vehicles and addressing environmental issues. All these digital economy needs electrical engineers who can handle smart cities and smart grids. Integrating the conventional and renewable sources is of high priority which can only be handled by Electrical Engineers. This creates a huge opportunity for electrical engineers and a promise of exciting careers.
Scope for higher studies in the main electrical discipline as well as interdisciplinary areas is possible, both classical and modern. Research focus is on green environment/ sustainable resources/developing alternate energy source/ innovation and modernisation of existing power networks to meet the global standards.
The key areas that further advance the field of Electrical Engineering are Energy Storage, Smart grid, Micro and Nano grids and Renewable energy. Recently, Electric Vehicles with wireless power transfer saw resurgence due to technological developments.
