Overview

EEE Department was formed by merging the then existing Electrical Engineering and Electronics Engineering departments in 1969-70. Prior to this the degree programme in Electrical Engineering was started way back in 1946 when Birla College of Engineering was established and Master’s programme leading to the degree of M.Sc. (Tech) Electronics was offered in the year 1955.The institute restructured the  M.E. programmes in the year 1988-89 with programme in Electronics & Control and programme degree in Microelectronics. The Department has also introduced M.E. programmes in Communication Engineering, Embedded Systems and Electrical-Power Electronics and Drives.

The Instrumentation programme was started in the year 1973 with the nomenclature of M.Sc. (Tech) Instrumentation as a two-year degree programme after the first degree. Later on in the year 1979-80 this programme was restructured as a 4-year integrated first degree programme with the same nomenclature. The nomenclature got changed in the year 1993 when it was renamed as B.E.(Hons) Instrumentation. Owing to the importance of electronics and its role in instrumentation, the degree was renamed as B.E. (Hons) Electronics and Instrumentation in the year 1998-99.

These Departments have earned a very high reputation in the country for the various degree programmes offered and also have established collaborative linkages with many institutions in the country and also with some of the universities abroad. The Government of India has also established a Technology Business Incubator Cell in the area of Microelectronics and Embedded System at the Institute with the active involvement of the faculty members of the Departments. The Department is striving to become a center of excellence in the field of Microelectronics, VLSI & related emerging areas by producing professionals who excel in Innovation, Entrepreneurship, Creativity and Management.
