Electrical Engineering


B.Tech in Electrical & Electronics Engineering (EEE) has been accredited for the Academic Years (2021-2022) to (2026-2027), i.e upto 30-06-2027 by National Board of Accreditation (NBA)



The Department of Electrical Engineering started since the inception of NIT Meghalaya. Presently the department offers B.Tech, M.Tech and PhD Programs. The B. Tech program started in 2010 with an intake of 30 students at NIT Surat and since 2014 onward M.Tech program has been started with an intake of 20 students offering specialization in Power & Energy Systems. Presently there are full time and part time research scholars, registered for the PhD program in diverse specializations. The Department aims to impart high quality education to the students and carry out fundamental and industry oriented research work. The research interest of faculties encompass various areas of electrical engineering such as Power system Control, Smart Grid Technology, Synchrophasor Technology, Power Quality and Renewable energy integration to grid, Power Electronics & Drives, Control System and Instrumentation, Signal Processing and Biomedical Instrumentation, High Voltage Engineering etc. The department have well-equipped laboratory facilities to the students such as Basic Electrical Engineering Lab, Electrical Machine Lab, Network and Systems Lab, Digital Electronics Lab, Power System Lab, Computational Lab, Control & Instrumentation Lab, Power Electronics Lab, Electric Drives Lab, Microprocessor Lab, Microcontroller & Embedded Systems Lab. Specialized simulation softwares like Matlab, Sincal, FLUX, PSPICE, PSIM, PSS@E, EMYP etc. are available with the department to carry out experiments and research activities. Besides, faculty of the EE department are very actively publishing papers in reputed journals and conferences such as IEEE, IET, Elsevier, Springer, Taylor and Francis, Wiley etc. Moreover, faculty members of EE department have received several sponsored research projects from various agencies like SERB-DST, CPRI, REC and State Council of Science Technology & Environment (SCSTE, Govt. of Meghalaya).

The department has two research laborartory.

Research Laboratory I

Established and funded by REC Transmission Projects Company Limited (Period: 2017-19) for the project titled as “Synchrophasor Sensing and Seamless Control of Smart Distribution Network with Renewable Energy Integration”. Experimental setup under this project is Solar PV and 10KW Inverter, DG setup and Battery bank, three-phase MLI. Under this project, four JRFs are working, and they have published their research works in the reputed/indexed journals such as IEEE Transaction on Industrial Informatics and Industrial Application Society etc. and IEEE Conference paper.

Research Laboratory II

Funded by DST and has experimental setups related to renewable energy integration. It includes a grid-connected wind turbine emulator using a DC motor coupled with a permanent magnet synchronous generator, a photovoltaic (PV) array, a bidirectional buck-boost converter, a DC-DC boost converter, and a Vienna rectifier. Each component plays a crucial role in exploring the integration of renewable energy sources into existing power systems. Also, a Pumped Hydro Energy Storage (PHES) system emulator is used through a meticulously designed setup. This setup includes a brushless DC (BLDC) motor coupled with a direct current (DC) machine controlled by a two-level inverter and chopper. Adding to the system's versatility and precision, an FPGA board takes charge of managing system control, ensuring optimal performance.
