From the HOD's Desk:
It gives me immense pride and pleasure to lead the Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department of this esteemed and prestigious institution of this country. The department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (EEE) is one of the major and principle departments of Dayananda Sagar College of Engineering since its inception in 1979. The Department is well respected, recognized and was accredited twice by AICTE, NBA-New Delhi. The department is permanently affiliated to Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU). The Department offers comprehensive programs, four years of undergraduate course (B.E.) , two years of Post Graduate (M.Tech-Power Electronics) course and Research / Doctoral Programme i.e. PhD/M.Sc (Engg.) by research.
Sitting squarely in an Engineering Faculty, the Department of EEE is focused on devising innovative, accurate solutions to complex problems, whilst ensuring that the solutions execute optimally. The department’s excellent infrastructure, extremely talented teaching faculty ensures quality education of the best kind. The Faculty members along with a Training and Placement Cell ensure a bright future to its students.

The department is renowned for both rigor and innovation; the curriculum is designed such a way that the department will focus to develop competent Electrical/Electronics Engineers who can take up industry challenges in their professional life. More emphasis is given on practical knowledge in addition to theoretical knowledge. The Department fosters automation through computers, experimental investigation and exposure to industrial problems. Immense practical value is sensed by students due to emphasis given to the extensive use of Power Electronics in modern Transmission Systems, Electric Drives, Power Systems and controls in engineering
We at EEE department continue to transform the way we live - from the latest gazettes through sophisticated scientific and industrial technologies. The EEE department endeavors to streamline the career options and pave ways for recent graduates to explore new career opportunities. The EEE graduates will have the opportunity to work in various private/Govt./ public sectors and industries Further, our graduates has various options to choose for career growth viz. he can easily switch over to software field or can opt for design/fabrication of electronic hardware engineer or can also chose to become an entrepreneur.
The Department has close collaboration with leading Training/ Research Institutes, Industries to share and augment new knowledge & skills to the students. Further the department receives grants regularly from various reputed funding organizations to carry out research and other academic activities.
The department shows outstanding performance by obtaining excellent results with several distinctions and the department regularly gets university ranks. Further the department understands the importance of student’s involvement in various external and internal professional bodies, which helps them to build the technology gap between Industry- academia, enriches knowledge and skill in latest industry trends. It is also our endeavor to ensure that the students of EEE department adhere to ethical values in life and be sensitive to environmental and social issues. The innovation culture in alma mater is enhanced by our alumnus, who acts as catalytic agents.
Thanks to the efforts of our management, researchers, teachers, alumnus and students for their continuous support.
