The Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering was established in the year 1999-2000 and the first batch graduated in 2003. The department offers Under Graduate degree program in Electrical and Electronics Engineering. The B.E. program is approved by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), New Delhi and the program has been accredited by National Board of Accreditation (NBA), New Delhi.

The department has a band of qualified, well experienced and dedicated faculty members with four Doctorates. Four of our faculty members are pursuing Ph.D., in Anna University and other Universities. The faculty members are encouraged to attend Seminars/Workshops/Conferences and present/publish research papers at National and International Level.

All the laboratories of the department are fully equipped with the state of the art equipments more than meeting the requirement of the Anna University syllabus. The department arranges industrial visits for students to expose them to the industrial practices. The students who have passed out of this department with flying colours are all gainfully employed or pursuing higher studies in India or abroad in reputed Institutions/Universities.

The department has an active “Association of Electrical and Electronics Engineers” which conducts Symposia, Seminars, Workshops and Guest Lectures. The association also brings out a half yearly news letter called `ELEKTRIKA' which is edited and brought out by the efforts of students and faculty members.

Dr.N.Gnanasekaran received his BE Degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Annamalai University and M.E. Degree in Power System Engineering from College of Engineering-Guindy, Anna University, Chennai. He obtained his Ph.D. from Anna University, Chennai in the area of Power System Distribution Systems. His areas of interest include Electrical Machines, Electrical Power Distribution Systems and Power System Operation and Control.

Dr.N.Gnanasekaran currently serves as a Professor and the Head of the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering. He has 20 years of teaching experience. He has published number of research papers in National and International journals. He is a member of IEEE, Life member of the Indian Society for Technical Education and the Indian Red Cross Society.
