Department of Electrical Engineering


Electrical Engineering was created since the establishment of the institute as Tripura Engineering College (TEC), a state engineering college in the year 1965, which is now National Institute of Technology, Agartala. It has been converted from TEC to NIT, Agartala with effect from the 1st April 2006, though the Union Cabinet approved the proposal of the state government for conversion of TEC to National Institute of Technology on 23rd February ‘2006.Electrical Engineering department offers an 8- semester B.Tech programme in “Electrical Engineering” with 90 intake capacity and a 4-semester M.Tech programme in Power Electronics & Drives, Power System Engineering, Instrumentation Engineering with 18(Eighteen) intake capacity and 4 semester M.Tech program in Integrated Energy System with 10 intake capacity. for each specialization. Parallely department is providing Ph.D. degree especially in Instrumentation, Power System, Power Quality, Renewable Energy e.t.c.

Program Educational Objectives

We have three different specializations in our EE (PG) department. The objective of these programs for our students is to enhance the gratitude attributes for all our individual PG students as describes in the NBA manual. The PEOs are described as follows:

I. Preparation: To prepare students to excel in PhD programs or to succeed in industry / technical profession through global, rigorous education.
II. Core Competence: To provide students with a solid foundation in mathematical, scientific and engineering fundamentals required to solve engineering problems and also to pursue higher studies.
III. Breadth: To train students with good scientific and engineering breadth so as to comprehend, analyze, design, and create novel products and solutions for the real life problems.
IV. Professionalism: To inculcate in students professional and ethical attitude, effective communication skills, teamwork skills, multidisciplinary approach, and ability to relate engineering issues to broader social context.
V. Learning Environment: To provide student with an academic environment aware of excellence, Leadership, written ethical codes and guidelines, and the life-long learning needed for a successful professional career.
VI. Team Work: In present day and age the team work is an essential ingredient to execute a complex manufacturing task. The team work knowledge is important.


Under Graduate Prograammes:

B.Tech. in Electrical Engineering(4 years)
This course aims at providing all the facilities for producing technocrats with sound knowledge in all the subjects such as electrical machines, power systems, instrumentation etc. including the elective papers with a strong background of practical knowledge relevant to the theory papers. Graduates coming out will be able to orient themselves to take up any challenging jobs in the industry and also will be able to carry out research and developmental activities with innovative ideas. The students are assigned with a major project during the end semesters where they carry out the developmental work under the guidance /supervision of the staffs.
