About The Department

The Department of Electrical And Electronics Engineering was established in the year 1993 with the approval of AICTE with a sanctioned intake of 60 students. It offers undergraduate programme of B.E Electrical and Electronics Engineering. A post graduate course in Power Electronics and Drives with a sanctioned intake of 18 students was started in the year 2004-2005.

EEE is the oldest of the engineering streams, and its applications are many. Methodist provides this important course for the undergraduates, and there are many benefits in joining it. EEE covers the topics about both the electrical and electronic subjects. So, these students can get into the jobs in any one of those streams. The number of career prospects for this group is huge, and it is the reason for many people to join this course. These students are offered with high salaried jobs, especially in the public sector. They are needed in power industry, electrical machine industries, etc. A number of private companies also offer lucrative job roles for these engineers. Due to this requirement, Methodist gives a special preference to EEE, and we had built a special base for this group. The laboratories, faculty, etc. for this group are of top notch, and we chalk out various industrial tours, seminars workshops, etc. for the benefit of our students.

EEE is one of the core streams of engineering, and it is required in any case. Hence the demand for this group never decreases, and it is the steadiest stream ever. You should join this course in Methodist due to the stated benefits. The EEE Department holds national and international conferences that function like informal think tanks. Faculty and students benefit from guest lectures on the latest innovations in both established and emerging fields. Campus interviews are conducted every year by leading software and hardware companies. The department has got well equipped Laboratories and Computer facilities along with high speed Internetwork.

B.E. – Electrical and Electronics Engineering

Electrical and Electronics Engineering is a continuously evolving subject. As technology has advanced, so have the challenges facing the modern engineer. A silicon chip containing over 100 million transistors in an area no larger than a postage stamp is yesterday's news.

EEE is a subject that naturally partners with other disciplines to open whole new engineering avenues. Examples include Mechatronics - with Mechanical Engineering, Bio-medical Sciences-with Medicine and Avionics-with Aeronautics. The EEE Department at SPIHER prepares students in this field using new-age information and computer-intensive technologies.

The B.E. degree program is designed to achieve a balance between depth of knowledge acquired through specialization and breadth of knowledge gained through exploration. The undergraduate degree courses offered by the department provide a comprehensive foundation in the core topics of EEE coupled with an area of specialization relevant to emerging engineering challenges.

M.E. – Power Electronics and Drives

The M.E (Power Electronics and Drives) programme is one of the main specialization areas often preferred by students with electrical, electronics, instrumentation and other relevant background. This Programme is being offered at SPIHER, Chennai from 2005. This Programme caters to the needs of industries ranging from domestic appliance manufacturers to high end automation service providers. One of the key highlights of the M.E Programme being offered at SPIHER, Chennai is the research experience gained by the students .In EEE, there is growing awareness that the future training and education of electrical engineers in the industry needs to be in the area of highly efficient, industry-relevant skills formation, to enable frequent and rapid deployment of professional skills in new areas. As a step in this direction, the postgraduate programs in power electronics & drives is evolved.

Objectives & Scope  : While undergoing the Programme, students will enrich their learning by 
(i) doing project internships at reputed industries and being absorbed in the same industry
(ii) carrying out research works; the outcomes of which are published in conferences and journals, 
(ii) listening to guest lectures, keynote addresses, 
(iii) visiting to industries and participating in professional activities.

Ph.D. – Electrical and Electronics Engineering

The research division covers various aspects of electrical engineering. There is an active and growing area of research in the field of power electronics & drives, power apparatus and systems, whilst collaborating with each other and a variety of industrial partners. The research group focuses on power electronic devices and integrated circuits, and their uses in various applications. Other major research strands include FACTS and their integration in power systems, integrated design of electrical machines and drives and electromagnetic modeling.

Papers have been published by our faculty members and research scholars in different refereed journals of international and national repute. Research papers have been presented in various conferences, seminars and symposia held at national and international levels. Our Department has signed MOUs with industries and institutions to promote collaborative research and consultancies.
