About Program

The department offers M. Tech (Power Electronics & Electrical Drives), a two-year full time postgraduate programme with an intake of 18, duly approved by AICTE, since the academic year 2008-09.

This programme deals with the state-of-the-art techniques in system-level modeling analysis, design and integration of motor drives. The programme also covers advanced topics in microprocessors and micro controllers which are essential for engineers in the Power Electronics field. Projects of practical relevance are taken up by the students during third and fourth semesters.

Instrumentation is the heart of any industry. This programme enriches the students in different spheres of instrumentation and control industries and also provides a strong foundation to pursue a career in system-level modeling analysis, design, and integration of motor drives, measurement and control of complex industrial and electrical processes through a diverse range of theoretical skills and practical experience.
