Modern life cannot continue without electricity. Electricity is the single largest source of power to drive all kind of modern day machines including the automation process. Electrical Engineering is a field of engineering that generally deals with the study and application of electricity, electronics and electromagnetism. The field first became an identifiable occupation in the late nineteenth century after commercialization of the electric telegraph and electrical power supply. It now covers a range of subtopics including Electrical machines, power systems, power electronics, control systems, signal processing. The need for efficient transport and cleaner source of energy has driven the need of Electric vehicles which has further provided opportunities for electrical engineers nationally and internationally. Electrical Engineers play an important role in installation work, testing, maintenance and many other sectors including research, higher studies, design, production, technical sales, power generation and distribution, traction work & defense.
Electrical Engineering Department of Bharati Vidyapeeth (Deemed To be University) College of Engineering, was established in the year 1987 with the approval of AICTE, New Delhi with an intake capacity of 60 students. The college and the programme were affiliated to the University of Pune. The University Grants Commission and the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Govt. of India awarded the Deemed University status in the year 2000 and now runs programme at B.Tech. (Electrical), M.Tech. (Power Systems) & Ph.D. levels. The department is accredited by NBA (National Board of Accreditation) in 2005, 2012, 2018 and 2020.
The spacious infrastructure, well equipped laboratories, meritorious students and academically qualified and enthusiastic faculty and innovative and project based teaching learning are the salient features of the Department. The Department has highly qualified faculty member’s with average experience of more than 14 years.
More than 1500 students have acquired B.E. / B.Tech (Electrical) degree and most of them have attained high positions in the organizations of repute. Some students continued their studies abroad and some have their own business. This shows the versatility of the knowledge they acquired in the department.
The department, apart from routine academic curriculum takes keen interest in several other academic activities like project based learning, Saturday@bvucoe, Engagement of people with science & technology, seminars, skilled based activities, expert lectures etc. and updates the practical aspects through industry -institute interaction. Department is having liaison with more than 76 industries and have industry developed electric vehicle laboratory. A 45 days In-plant training is a integral part of the syllabi which gives exposure of industrial environment to the final year students. The syllabus is so designed that students are well exposed to the needs of the industry. The department continuously motivates the students for their involvement in Industry- institute interaction, including social activities.
