Electrical Engineering Lectures & Courses

Electrical engineering is concerned with the study, design, and application of systems and devices which use electricity or concerns electromagnetism. It’s a relatively newer branch of engineering and it came into existence only around the 19th century. The field of electrical engineering gained importance after the commercialization was done for electric power generation and tools using electricity such as telephone, fans etc.,. Institute of electrical and electronics engineers (IEEE) and Institute of engineering and technology (IET) are the primary bodies through which electrical engineers can gain professional certifications.

Key Focus Area of the Course


Electrical engineering deals with the following main facets:

  •         Transmission and distribution of electric power and all the devices required in these processes.
  •         Process of designing and testing of electronic circuits.
  • ·         Designing controller systems, the transmission of information via different communication channels.


Eligibility Criteria


  •         Under Graduate (UG) - The candidate should pass with at least 50% marks in their class XII or the equivalent CGPA in a science major.
  •         Post Graduate (PG) - The candidate should have at least 60% of marks (first class) in their Under Graduation with Engineering major. If the grading system has CPI, then the candidate should have a minimum CPI of 6.5.

Present and Future Scope of Electrical Engineering


Currently, electrical engineers have found a place in almost every industry that requires research and development in terms of technology. The future also looks bright for them, mainly because of their versatility. They have the capability to develop and apply emerging technologies to design equipment and products which make life easier. It is believed that the pace at which technology is advancing will surely lead to an increase in demand of the electrical engineers over time as without their expertise it would not be possible to bring about the necessary innovations and development.
