Electrical Engineering


The Department of Electrical Engineering started since the inception of NIT Meghalaya. Presently the department offers B.Tech, M.Tech and PhD Programs. The B. Tech program started in 2010 with an intake of 30 students at NIT Surat and since 2014 onward M.Tech program has been started with an intake of 20 students offering specialization in Power & Energy Systems. Presently there are full time and part time research scholars, registered for the PhD program in diverse specializations. The Department aims to impart high quality education to the students and carry out fundamental and industry oriented research work. The research interest of faculties encompass various areas of electrical engineering such as Power system Control, Smart Grid Technology, Synchrophasor Technology, Power Quality and Renewable energy integration to grid, Power Electronics & Drives, Control System and Instrumentation, Signal Processing and Biomedical Instrumentation, High Voltage Engineering etc. The department have well-equipped laboratory facilities to the students such as Basic Electrical Engineering Lab, Electrical Machine Lab, Network and Systems Lab, Digital Electronics Lab, Power System Lab, Computational Lab, Control & Instrumentation Lab, Power Electronics Lab, Electric Drives Lab, Microprocessor Lab, Microcontroller & Embedded Systems Lab. Specialized simulation softwares like Matlab, Sincal, FLUX, PSPICE, PSIM, PSS@E, EMYP etc. are available with the department to carry out experiments and research activities. Besides, faculty of the EE department are very actively publishing papers in reputed journals and conferences such as IEEE, IET, Elsevier, Springer, Taylor and Francis, Wiley etc. Moreover, faculty members of EE department have received several sponsored research projects from various agencies like SERB-DST, CPRI, REC and State Council of Science Technology & Environment (SCSTE, Govt. of Meghalaya).
