Electrical Engineering

Welcome to the Department of Electrical Engineering

Electrical Engineering has had a huge impact on the technologies that define modern-day life and society. We are proud of the depth of analytical treatment, and the specialized optional subjects we offer within our program here at KEC. We have more than 20 professional faculties— including visiting professors form IOE. We see educating the next generation of engineers as our key role, and our graduates are highly-valued by industry and commerce around the world. We are committed to our students, helping them learn, grow, develop and ultimately achieve their goals, whether it is by becoming a professor, an entrepreneur, or by joining industry.

Mission Statement

The mission of the department of electrical engineering is to promote technical excellence in Electrical Engineering by offering programs to produce engineers with dynamic, well-rounded personalities, adaptable to ever-increasing demands of emerging technologies involving analytical and practical skills. We are commitment to research and development. We provide the knowledge and principles on which electrical engineering is founded in order to produce engineering graduates who are technically competent, creative, and articulate.

What is Electrical Engineering?

Electrical Engineering is concerned with the design, research, development, planning, manufacturing and management of electrical systems and devices which are required to facilitate the needs of modern, developed societies. Electrical engineers design, develop and supervise the manufacturing of electrical systems and devices. Particularly, they focus on the generation, transmission and distribution of electrical power, their control and protection system. Electrical engineers are also concerned with the utilization of electrical power in various areas such as industrial application, communication systems, information technology systems and building electrification, among others.

Why Choose Electrical Engineering at KEC?

KEC’s Department of Electrical Engineering has been established to cater to the rising demand for Engineers to work in the area of power systems, renewable energy technology and industrial applicants. Besides an excellent faculty and staff, the department has well-equipped laboratories to train the student in these areas. It also has a training and consultancy unit, a Robotics Club and academic project rooms to strengthen all extra activities. Those interested in working in the above-mentioned areas must choose Electrical Engineering at KEC.

Is Electrical Engineering for you?

If you are interested in any of the following area, then you may enjoy a career in Electrical Engineering:

  • Working with Power generation, transmission and distribution.
  • Deal with machines and Control Systems
  • Making things work electrically
  • Working with Alternative and Renewable energy

Career outcomes

Studying Electrical Engineering will lead you to potential careers in the power industry, manufacturing industry, renewable energy sector and communication sector, among others. One may also build up his/her career in selfestablished employment in the above areas.

Working Environment

The overall work environment at KEC affects the quality of education as well as the quality of employee performance here. The involvement of the highly professional teaching experts and the availability of ample resources contribute to the excellent working environment in this department. Additionally, experts from different fields are periodically invited to share their knowledge with students through talk programs, seminars and other programs. The department and the college are both committed to creating a good working environment.

Resources

The department is fully equipped with all the resources and materials it needs to impart quality education. We are proud to mention that we have well-equipped laboratory set ups, unparalleled by any similar setup found in other institutions. The library holds sufficient books relating to course material and many others that will foster professional enhancement.

Participation

Frequent field visits to power stations, manufacturing, and other industries are regularly conducted by the department, and the students compulsorily participate in these visits, present field reports as part of their assignments. Students are made to participate in semester projects, and at the end of each semester, they demonstrate and present their projects. Students have, over the years, also participated in a number of other activities, like the development wind turbine and the establishment of Energy Study Center, among others.

Appreciable Project

A team Electrical Engineering students from KEC developed a 1 KW wind turbine which has drawn the attention of different energy experts, organizations and the media. This, we think, is a small but firm step towards the development of the renewable energy technology in the country.

HOD Note

The Department of Electrical Engineering has recorded consistent improvement in its academic, research and placement performance. We make several strategies and plans and implement them to transform young incoming students into competent electrical engineers which are constantly updated to meet the changing requirement of the energy industry. We have well equipped and efficiently running labs for Power plant equipment, Switchgear and Protection, Electrical Circuits and Control systems, Electrical Machines and Instrumentation. 

Separate rooms dedicated for projects, mini projects and other workshop is helping our students with practical knowledge. We feel pleasure to mention that our graduated
students are working in many reputed  company, Government offices and some are pursuing further degree in highly esteemed universities in US and other countries.

Our students from electrical department run
“Electrical Club” which launch annual technical
magazine and conducts basic workshop for first
year students .We also encourage students to      organize various events such as Talk program
about contemporary technical issues,  participate in technical competitions organized by other colleges/institutions and also get involved in activities of social relevance where they have earned a magnificent triumph.

The curriculum, approved by Institute of Engineering, is taught by a distinguished faculty
combining academic excellence and real world experience with dedication and commitment.
The teaching module comprises lectures, tutorials and practical. The methodology adopted
in the classroom teaching is based on application of innovative strategies, comprehensive lectures, regular assignments and interaction between teachers and students. We do not leave any stones unturned to inspire our students to independently formulate their opinion on every
matter that concerns.

At last I would like to welcome all the prospective students to the Department of Electrical
Engineering at Kathmandu Engineering College and cherish for lifelongexperience.
