About us

To keep pace with the rapidly evolving electronics industry requires unwavering passion and urge to innovate. This, precisely, is what the Department of Electrical & Electronics Engineering at the BITS-Pilani, Hyderabad Campus is about.  The Department of Electrical & Electronics Engineering, which includes EEE, ECE and EIE, is one of the largest departments on the campus, comprising of students, faculty and technical staff. The broad spectrum of courses is taught by a group of highly-experienced faculty who are also researchers in their own areas. The syllabus - rigorous in design and content - is in keeping with the latest developments in the industry. Well-equipped laboratories coupled with extensive practical work ensure the student receives a well-rounded education.
Students are actively involved in research and projects in thrust areas such as VLSI, Embedded Systems, Power Electronics, Communication Systems, etc; they are also encouraged to foray into interdisciplinary courses such as Image Processing, Medical Imaging, Renewable Energy, Pattern Recognition, etc., under the able guidance of the faculty. Strengthening University-Industry ties has always been one of the top priorities of the BITS curriculum. Keeping this in mind, the department has focused on industry-defined problems for thesis work. Numerous collaborations and MoUs signed with various organizations are testament to this commitment.
