Electrical Engineering


Electrical Engineering is the field where we deal with the energy that runs our world. It can be exists in various forms like gas, fuel cell, turbine, hydro, solar, wind or geothermal energy.

Electrical engineering has the complete knowledge to utilize and distribute these energies out from their sources to our factories, home, hospitals, school and offices, and our life.

And it does not stop here.

Today, electrical engineering not only involves in electrical appliances, but also involves in computer, electronics, communication and mechanical fields.

Do you have a computer or cellular phone?

Off course! Electrical engineering is there.

“Electrical Engineering deals with the application and study of electromagnetism, electronics and electricity”

Electrical engineering is one of the selectable disciplines in the field of engineering and technology.

Electrical engineering has been adopted in professional education in the year 1882. In the year 1884, the great physics Thomas Edison has provided the 110 volt’s DC electricity to his 59 customers in Manhattan City in Newyork.

Course & Duration

Electrical engineering is an exciting filed of engineering and technology. Electronics engineering and electrical & electronics engineering are the close related to this field. The duration of the total course take four years.

The academic criterion of Electrical Engineering is divided into three courses/programmes as follows:

  1. Diploma courses leading to the polytechnic diploma of 3 years duration. (after 10th or 12th)
  2. UG courses leading to the B.Tech (Bachelor of Technology) degree of 4 years duration. (after 12th)
  3. PG courses leading to the M.Tech (Master of Technology) degree of 2 years duration. (after Graduation)

Beside these, it is one of the broad research fields leading to the PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) degree.

For entering in PG (M.Tech) programme, B.Tech in Electrical Engineering is must.

Specialization (Sub-disciplines)

Electrical Engineering has expanded in various specializations as the following.

  • Power
  • Control
  • Electronics
  • Microelectronics
  • Signal processing
  • Telecommunications
  • Instrumentation
  • Computers
  • Mechatronics

After completion of UG degree the students are designated as the Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Applied Science, Bachelor of Engineering or Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech), depending on the University.

A bachelor degree usually covers the mathematics, physics, project management, and computer science.

There are so many specializations or sub-disciplines in electrical engineering but to choose in higher degrees after completion of bachelor degree.

The core subjects included in the study of electrical engineering  are as follows:

  • Electro-magnetism
  • Control systems
  • Electricity Technology and Machines
  • Circuit Analysis, Electronics
  • Electrical Engineering Material
  • Transmission & Distribution
  • Instrumentation
  • Microprocessor interfacing
  • Power Engineering
  • Thermodynamics

Have you completed your 10+2 examination?


Then go ahead and pick the right one as of your interest.

You can choose the Electrical Engineering, once you have completed your 10 or 10+2 examination with mathematics and science.


B.Tech is the most sought course in the field of electrical engineering. Every year, many students take admission in this course. Admissions is done through entrance test. After completing 12th, students can apply for JEE Main 2021 in order to take admission in undergraduate engineering courses. Those desiring to get into IITs or NITs are required to succeed the JEE Advanced 2021 which is the second stage of JEE Main.

For getting admission in postgraduate engineering courses, students have to qualify the Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE 2021). This entrance test is the gateway for admission to PG courses.

Besides these entrance exams, there are many other state and University level entrance exams which provides admission to electrical engineering.
