4-year B.Tech in Electrical Engineering
The 4-year B.Tech Electrical Engineering program is offered at Himalayan Institute of Engineering & Technology
Electrical engineering is one of the largest and most diverse technological and engineering disciplines in today’s world. Electrical engineering is the study and application of electricity, electronics and electromagnetism for the development and maintenance of electrical and electronics equipments such as electric motors, navigation systems, medical devices, broadcast and communication systems, power generation systems, electrical distribution systems, electric grids etc., while keeping in mind the safety, quality, economic feasibility and sustainability of these products and systems.
Based on the fundamentals of Physics and Mathematics, Electrical Engineering became a field of it’s own in the 19th century due to innovations such as the generator, motors, telephone, wireless communications and electronics. Since then, electrical engineering has sure come a long way. Not only has it been one of the major driving forces behind cutting edge technology in areas such as power engineering, computer engineering, communications and mobile technologies, it has also significantly impacted several other fields such as nanotechnology, biomedical engineering, neuroscience and biotechnology, to name a few. Electrical engineering students use science, engineering, technology and analytical reasoning, creative and critical thinking skills to solve problems and design, construct and maintain electrical and electronics products.
Some sub disciplines of electrical engineering are: electronics, digital computers, power engineering, telecommunications, control systems, RF engineering, signal processing, instrumentation, and microelectronics. India is home to renowned universities for electrical engineering, both at the undergraduate and graduate level.
First year of will cover basic science courses such as Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and an overview to other engineering disciplines such as basic mechanical engineering, basic civil engineering, electronics, introduction to computers etc.
Second year onwards will expose students to core subjects in electrical engineering. For Electrical Engineering students, core courses are power system analysis, motors, transformers, control systems, high voltage engineering, power electronics, power system economics and control techniques, power system protection and switchgear and utilization of electrical energy. There will also be elective subjects where students can choose courses that they are interested in specializing further in.
