Student Activities

* Electrical Integrated Team of Engineering Students (ELITES) is a student association of the Department of Electrical & Electronics Engineering. It organizes extra-curricular activities like

• GEOMITRA -A competition to enhance the mathematical and logical problem-solving skills of the students is conducted once a year.
• Seminar week-The experts in different areas within the college deliver lectures on latest technologies
* ELIXIR – a student project exhibition organized every year involving hobby projects and projects related to subjects build by the students of E&E. It has become a major attraction in the entire college.
* Various technical events during TechNidarshanan National Level Technical Fest, every year which involves paper presentation, technical quizzes, circuit debugging and other technical competition.
* Elēkrŏn- a department magazine highlighting all the events conducted by the department in the respective academic year.
* Crack the campus-Senior students train junior students on career aspects.
*Special lectures per semester -lectures being delivered by the eminent people either from the college or industries.
* Students carried out Consultancy Project on “MPPT Techniques to improve the energy efficiency of Solar Power Inverter” at Digital Circuit Pvt Ltd., Bangalore. Also Digital Circuit Pvt. Ltd., Bangalore have agreed for few more consultancy projects to the students.

Conference/FDP Every year National level conference and FDP are conducted in the department. This provides a good platform for both student and faculty to enhance the technical skill.
