About the Department

Dept. data last updated on :17/02/2023

The department of Electrical Engineering was established in 1935 with an intake of 20 students, and the first graduate program started in 1940. A new phase of significant developments in the department started during the third five-year plan. Currently, the department is offering undergraduate, postgraduate, and doctorate programs in various specialized disciplines of electrical engineering. Presently the total intake of the B.Tech. program is 60, and the M. Tech program is 54. The department recently started a new M.Tech. program in "Solar and Renewable Energy," with an intake of 10 students. The department now runs one B.Tech. and four M.Tech. Programs. The thrust areas of the department are Power Systems, Power Electronics, Control, and High Voltage Engineering.

The faculty members have published a significant number of research articles in reputed journals and have also published several textbooks/edited books with reputed international publishers. Many research projects sponsored by A.I.C.T.E, U.G.C., D.S.T., and C.S.T. (U.P.) have been successfully completed. The first PhD in the Faculty of Engineering & Technology, Aligarh Muslim University, was produced by this department in 1977. Since then, many students have completed their PhD degrees in the department. Further, the department's faculty members have published more than 1000 research papers. The department organized one IEEE international conference in 2019. Many Workshops/Seminars/Training programs have been successfully organized in the last five years. Faculty members have chaired technical sessions of different national and international meets and have been regular members of various technical committees.

The department of Electrical Engineering has sanctioned strength of 27 faculty members, and most faculty members hold doctorates from reputed national and international institutes. Faculty members have specialization in diverse fields of Electrical Engineering such as Power systems, Electrical Machines, Electrical Drives, High Voltage Engineering, Control systems, Instrumentation, Biomedical Engineering, Hybrid Electric Vehicles, and Renewable sources of Energy.
