The department has a history of producing students who graduate with excellent performance in the Examinations conducted by the University of Kerala and A P J Abdul Kalam Kerala Technological University. Majority of the eligible students are placed in various reputed National and International companies through campus placement drive of Career Guidance and Placement Unit of the college. Several students qualify for PG programs in IITs, NITs IIMs and top ranked foreign universities.
The programme curriculum is designed to provide engineering graduates adequate knowledge and skills required for a successful carrier in the field of Electrical and Electronics Engineering.
The department takes special efforts in imparting value added technical education to the students. Continuous efforts are also being made to arrange lectures in advanced areas of Electrical and Electronics Engineering by eminent professors from IITs, NITs, IISc, IIST and experienced technical experts from industries like KSEB, KELTRON, VSSC, ER & DC, Electrical Inspectorate, Energy Management Centre etc. Along with the curriculum they are provided with analytical training by introducing different simulation packages like SIMULINK, etap, MiPower etc.
The M.Tech. course in Power Systems and Control is aimed at introducing latest development in the field Power Systems with due importance to Control Systems. Developments in smart grid technology, The department also gives emphasis to extracurricular activities of the students by training them for improving their leadership qualities, presentation skills, organizing skills etc from the entry level itself.
