Department of Electrical Engineering

Welcome to the Department of Electrical Engineering (EE)

Electrical Engineering (EE) at IIT Dharwad focuses mainly on fundamentals of building physical devices and exploring the mathematical sides of EE. With faculty from varying research backgrounds, the department encourages multi-disciplinary research allied with computer science, applied physics, biotechnology, chemistry and computation. Undergraduate and graduate students will study and work on some of the exciting research problems in a wide variety of subjects, both theoretical and experimental. The EE Department has active collaborations with numerous industries and academic institutions, both in India and abroad. The EE Department highly encourages graduate/undergraduate students to take up internships in research labs across the globe. The faculty at EE Department are mainly working in the areas of next generation wireless communication such as IoT, 5G and beyond, communication networks, performance modeling, resource allocation, sensors, circuits and devices, control engineering, machine learning and deep neural networks, signal processing, speech processing, power systems and power electronics. These research activities are carried out in our advanced laboratory facilities at the institute.


The EE Department has attracted several bright graduate (MS and PhD) students in the recent past to pursue research under the supervision of young faculty members of the department. The department is in its formative years, and in order to compete globally in research, students and faculty need to conduct high quality research with great impact. The funds towards this come from various government and private agencies on a competitive basis. Oftentimes, these funds do not support all the research needs of the students such as travel support for presenting their papers in international conferences. Further, funds towards contingency/working expenses are also limited. Therefore, there is a need to support research by adding resources to our existing funds. In addition, since this is a new institute, as of now, we do not have a very strong alumni network who can contribute. The department has started an initiative where we seek generous contributions from the public, and we will always remain thankful to the contributors. We request you to kindly mention that you are contributing towards the Electrical Engineering Department while transferring the money.
