Message from Head of Department Electrical Engineering
It gives me immense pleasure in welcoming, on behalf of the Department of Electrical Engineering at College of Engineering Pune. The Department established in 1932, running UG program since 1932 and PG programs in Power Systems and Control Systems since 1952. It has 83 years long history of technical education. Electrical engineers produced by this department have contributed to industrial development over the last 78 years at national and international level. The Department has team of 21 faculty members and well qualified staff. It presently has well equipped laboratories and excellent computational facilities. World class software like MATLAB, Simu-link, PSCAD, ETAP, MULTISIM, PSIM, Proteus, Lab view, MAGNET are available in the department to work on top-of-the line projects in various areas of electrical engineering. The indigenously developed laboratory set ups are attracting the attention of elite institutes including the IITs. Some of these set ups are first-of-its-kind in the country. The department is always enthusiastic in conducting various courses and workshops for the faculty and students to permeate advances in technology. All undergraduate, postgraduate and Ph.D. students thereby get full opportunity to participate in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities leading to a holistic personality development.
The department hosts a diverse and vibrant research portfolio in areas such as Green Energy, Real Time Robust Control of Under Actuated Systems, Optimal Control of Power Flow, UPFC, Efficient PM machines, Fuzzy Controllers, Power Converters and Drives, Power quality analysis etc. The department also has excellent testing facilities in the area of high voltage engineering and testing of rotating machines. The research activities of our faculty lead to an extraordinary enrichment of the experience of our students that is realized at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. The Department of Electrical Engineering is also having Center of Excellence in Smart Renewable Energy Systems (SRES). The Center also builds on the existing excellence of the electrical and mechanical engineering programs and broadens the scope and expertise to meet the grand challenges in energy and environment. In future the establishment of the SRES Center will position COEP as national leader in smart renewable energy systems.
Without manufacturing, ideas and postulates can hardly reach the epitome in engineering expeditions. One must appreciate the fact that the field of manufacturing genuinely encompasses almost Electrical engineering specializations. The entire globe has passionately delved into making milestones in manufacturing technology and hence it poses a challenge before us how to get into this tandem in India as well. Over the years, the Electrical Engineering Department has evolved to reach and hold a unique position of pride in the Technical Education System.
