M.E. Power Electronics and Drives

About the Department

Welcome To Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering

The Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering was established in the year 2009. In PG course Power Electronics and drives was established in 2012. Department has the unique advantage of being the combination of both Electrical Engineering and Electronics Engineering and thus providing the students of this branch double benefit to study broader subjects which provide them double advantage for placements in companies of repute related to both the fields.


The department always doing its best efforts to meet the objective of achieving technical excellence in all areas of Electrical and Electronics Engineering such as Circuits, Machines, Power Systems, Power Electronics, Instrumentation, Analog and Digital Electronics The faculty members have strong sense of responsibility to provide the finest possible education for both graduate and undergraduate students.

H.O.D Message

The global climate change and depleting natural resources are demanding invention of new technologies which are energy conscious. The confidence in managing new knowledge society requires continuous learning through novel approaches supported with research and development works in the areas of power and energy. The Department is making best efforts to produce highly trained and capable Engineers who can take up the challenges of the real world. My department joins me in meeting our mission by producing knowledgeable and committed technologists to serve our country and humanity as a whole. The hard work and sincerity are strong pillars of success. Through our practices we strive to impress our students to inculcate these values and support the mission of Vivekananda Institute of Engineering and Technology for Women. I welcome wholeheartedly our alumni to join hands in supporting our endeavors by all means of interaction. Our doors are always open to Universities, research organizations, industries and utility companies to collaborate with us in building valuable knowledge society foreseeing bright future.


To be an academic institution exclusively for women, in dynamic equilibrium with the social and economic environment, striving continuously for excellence in education, research and technological service to the society.


To discover, teach and apply knowledge for the intellectual, cultural, ethical, social and economic growth of women students.
