Electrical and Electronics Engineering

Electrical and Electronics Engineering is one of the “mother” disciplines in engineering. Over the decades, it has expanded into several new domains. This process continues, and new discoveries and applications are creating exciting new opportunities for an Electrical and Electronics Engineering graduate. Electronics, semiconductor manufacturing, space technologies, electric vehicles, power generation, robotics, healthcare, communication, networks, VLSI devices, and automation, to name a few, are some fields that are centred around Electrical and Electronics Engineering. Products and systems that we come across in our lives are an integration of knowledge of one or more subjects of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, and other engineering disciplines as well.

The Bachelor of Technology programme in Electrical and Electronics Engineering at Ahmedabad University is designed to impart a strong and in-depth knowledge on foundational subjects including circuits, digital electronics, computer technology, microprocessors, devices, electric machines, electronic devices, power systems, electromagnetics, and control engineering. Further, a unique feature of the Programme is the inclusion of electro-chemistry and related topics which are essential to understanding batteries, fuel cells and electrolysers; these are basic components of the “Hydrogen economy”. A systems project brings together many of these subjects, and subjects from other disciplines, to realise the integrative nature of Electrical and Electronics Engineering.

Electric power generation and distribution is the mainstay of any economy and concerns about climate change have opened up many possibilities in renewable energy, hydrogen energy, batteries, fuel cells, and solar photovoltaic devices, amongst others. Wireless and optic fibre networks have connected us in a way that has changed our lives even as 5G networks are coming up. The use of sensors in manufacturing and health care, and many other applications, has opened up a new field ‘Industry 4.0’ which is network and computer technology intensive. Recently, India has taken major steps in indigenous design and manufacturing of semiconductor devices and chips, as well as electronics products.

Ahmedabad University’s Bachelor of Technology programme in Electrical and Electronics Engineering will provide you a strong broad-based foundation in theoretical and practical knowledge and skills. With such an education you can build a career in any of the fields mentioned above, and in many others as well. Additionally, our Engineering Foundation courses will provide you with capabilities to work and lead in multidisciplinary teams. The breadth in the BTech programme broadens your perspective on societal issues and equips you for a career in a complex world where knowledge and skills beyond engineering are essential.
