About The Department

The department of Electrical Engineering was established in 2002 to teach the undergraduate program under the then West Bengal University of Technology and the present Maulana Abdul Kalam Azad University of Technology. Since inception, the thrust of the department is to provide quality education, research and meet the huge demand of qualified specialists in the field of Electrical Engineering.

Our highly qualified and motivated faculty members teach with three main thrust areas, so that our students get absorbed after completing the course in different sectors namely core industry, software industry and educational institutions. The department conducts Research activities in areas of Power System, Power Electronics & drives, Control System, Measurement & Instrumentation and Renewable energy utilization.

Our department has two professional societies: (1) Student chapter of IEEE Power & Energy Society-IEEPES and (2) Student chapter of IET U.K.These have created opportunities for research collaboration within and across other societies within and outside the institute for our students and faculty members conducting research & projects. The Electrical Engineering Department also hosts an online journal named "Journal of Electrical Engineering of MSIT". It helps students and faculty members in disseminating their research.

The faculties are involved in a number of research activities independently in collaboration with faculty members from other universities like Jadavpur University and IIEST Shibpur. Faculties and students of the department have been publishing their research work in National/International Journals like IEEE Transactions and conferences on regular basis. Students of the department have developed many innovative projects which won accolades and awards from MAKAUT, CIT, IIT KGP to name a few. Some of the projects are: (a) RETINA, (b) ALLPS, (c) DOTAGE CARE, (d) LETTEROID, (e)SMART DUSTBIN. DOTAGE CARE which have reached the semifinals in competitions conducted by Texas Instrumentation, DST and IIM.

The Electrical Engineering Department also has a PLC & SCADA Lab with PLCs of various manufacturers. The System house of PLC industries participates along with the faculties to impart Summer Training and conduct workshops for our students.

This and other initiatives of the department like seminars and workshops conducted by experts from industries enable industry-academia partnership in teaching of our students. The alumni of the department are well placed in academia, government and private sectors, core and software industries. The department has an alumni advisory board. The alumni share their skills under the scheme" Back to Class Room" on regular basis. The Electrical department of Meghnad Saha Institute of Technology grows in stature with providing improved and quality education to our students. The department is expanding in research and quality teaching with every passing year. The department welcomes all initiatives and supports from industry, academia, alumni and parents to help us to work towards our goal of imparting better education.

Welcome from Head of the Department


    We at Electric Engineering Department of MSIT always endeavor for all round development of our students to equip them to handle efficiently the various difficulties of life after they enter the world of professionals on completing their course. We offer our students various avenues like research work, project work, project competitions, other co-curricular work and competitions, extra-curricular work and competitions, personality development etc. Student according to his/her traits can choose from the carrier in core industries, software industries, a carrier in education institutional and/ or research, a carrier as a manager etc. Further we help our students to develop entrepreneurial skills so that they may set up their own startups. We have an Innovation Incubation Entrepreneurship development cell (IIEDC) where students are encouraged and guided to become entrepreneurs in their own way. During our alumni meet we get to meet our students from all walks of life like power sector, steel sector, other core sectors, various software industries, various academic and research institutions and few with their own startups. We also have quite long alumni who are well established in India and abroad. Under the program "Back to Class room" these alumni are invited to speak to our students and guide them with their experiences. In the end I wish to mention and always eager to encourage our students to excel in academics and also to do something more, to make them a better and successful individual.
