Electrical & Electronics Engineering

About the Department

The Department of Electrical Engineering (presently called Department of Studies in Electrical and Electronics Engineering, E & E) is one of the oldest departments in the college. It was started in the year 1957. M.Tech program in power systems and power electronics was started in the year 2004 by Kuvempu University and at present (from 2011 onwards) the department offers M. Tech program in Power Systems Engineering. The department also offers research programs in E & E Engg. (MS by research and Ph.D program)

The department has dedicated faculties. Most of the faculty members of the department have obtained their M. Tech and Ph.D degrees from IITs & IISc of our country.

The department has established many laboratories to cater to the needs of the present day syllabus. The department has power systems simulation laboratory, electrical machinery laboratory, electrical measurements laboratory, high voltage laboratory, electronics and microprocessor/microcontroller laboratory and computer center. Under the MODROBS scheme of AICTE, New Delhi, modern power system simulation lab has been recently set up and also new equipments and instruments are procured for electronics lab. Under TEQIP grants, new equipments are procured for high volt laboratory. Software packages on PSPICE, matlab and Mi-Power are available at the computer center of the department. The internet facility is available at the department computer center.

The department also undertakes testing of electrical equipment from public and private organization under college consultancy centre.

The department has students association, in the name of Forum of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (FEEE). The FEEE activities started in the year 1980 and since its inception, FEEE supports extra and co-curricular activities among students of E & E Engineering. Through this FEEE, many technical activities are organized by the students. The department has a separate forum library equipped with large collection of different text books.

Also, department organized many seminars and workshops for benefit of faculty members of various engineering colleges through TEQIP program.

The department maintains its own website http://www.ubdtee.in/ and students can find more information in this web page.

Consultancy Centre

The Civil flgineerng department has good consultancy centre and actively involved in undertaking various types of workspertaining to soil and foundations, cement and concrete tests, steel and building materials, water quality tests and irrigation projects. The services of the consultancy centre are being catering to Private and Government departments.

Engineering Geology Laboratory

Faculty in-Charge

Dr. Muzzamil Ahamed,M.Sc,Ph.D

Associate Professor

The Engineering Geology is offered to Civil Engineering course in 111 and IV Semester. Geology has very wide application in the field of Civil Engineering. It contributes substantially towards the economy and stability of different Civil Engineering projects. Therefore, their stability and safety dpends on the competence of the situ rocks of the sites concerned. This subjects deals with the geotechnical study of the sites and location of major Engineering projects such as Dams, reservoirs, tunnels, roads, and bridges which are indispensable for achieving prosperity and seifreliance.

The Geology museum is well equipped with Minerals, Rocks and other different models related to Civil Engineering to teach laboratory classes.
