The Punjab Engineering College (PEC) with its rich historical background of 97 years was originally established as Mugalpura Engineering at Lahore (Pakistan) on November 9, 1921. Later its name was changed to Maclagan Engineering College Lahore. After partition in1947, it was shifted to Roorkee with a name East Punjab College of Engineering. In 1953, it was shifted to Chandigarh; and ‘East‘was dropped from the name of college .With the formation of union territory , the college started functioning under Govt. of India through Chandigarh administration. In 2003, the UGC notified the PEC as Deemed to be University. The institute strives to become a centre of excellence in technical education and research. The Department of Electrical Engineering Department (EE), offers Undergraduate, Masters and Doctoral programmes in Electrical Engineering. The field of Electrical Engineering encompasses a broad spectrum of technologies. The students here can study topics such as power generation, electric machine, measurement and instrumentation, high voltage, networks, power electronics and energy conversion, analog and digital electronics, control systems and sensors, microprocessor, mechatronics, renewable energy with a host of other elective courses. Department currently has 16 faculty members with expertise in diverse areas including Power Systems, Renewable Energy, Power Electronics, Robotics, Control Systems, Signal Processing, Mechatronics, Instrumentation to name a few. The department has supporting teaching and research laboratories. There is continuous up-gradation of faculty and facilities for research and for the advancement and dissemination of the knowledge in electrical engineering and related fields. The students are sent for Industrial Training/Industrial Tour to various National institutes, National laboratories, industries and electric utilities all over India during their 2nd and 3rd year. This gives the students the exposure and confidence to work in an industrial environment. Our graduates and post-graduates are highly valued by industry and academia around the world. We see educating the next generation of electrical engineers as a key role. The Electrical Engineering Department enables students to learn and grow in a challenging and supportive environment with access to the academic resources and facilities to foster the tools for success.
