Department of Electrical Engineering
Dr. Asim Datta, Head
The Department of Electrical Engineering was established in the year 2011 and the academic program was started from August 2012. Presently department is conducting 4 yrs. (8 Semester) Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.), 2 years (4 Semester) Master of Technology (M. Tech.) and Ph.D. (Engineering & Technology) programs.
The Department aims to impart high quality education to the students and carry out fundamental and industry oriented research work. The research interests of faculties encompass various areas of electrical engineering such as power system dynamics and control, Power quality, Power system stability and reliability, Control System and Instrumentation,Power Electronics & Drives, Renewable energy sources, embedded systems, etc.
The Department have well-equipped laboratory facilities to the students such as Basic Electrical Lab, Electrical Machine Lab, Circuit and Networks Lab, Digital Electronics Lab, Power System Simulation Lab, Control & Instrumentation Lab, Power Electronics & Drives Lab, Microprocessor Lab, Microcontroller & Embedded Systems Lab, etc.The Department has been executing some research projects sponsored by DeitY and CPRI.
Presently total intake capacity of each batch in B. Tech is 30. Admission is done through JEE (Main) and MZUEEE (Mizoram University Engineering Entrance Examination) counseling, 50 % seats for JEE (Main) and 50 % seats for MZUEEE. Lateral Entry for 3year diploma holders will be allowed in the Second year (Third Semester) level, if seats are available through MZUEEE. Presently total intake capacity of M. Tech is 15 out of which 03 are reserved for sponsored category. Admission is done through GATE and/or MZUMTEE (Mizoram University Master of Technology Entrance Examination). Admission to Doctoral Programme in the department is done through Mizoram University Ph. D Entrance Examination followed by interview.
