Electrical Engineering is the mother of many
engineering streams that have sprung up in the last few decades
- Electronics and Communication Engineering
- Instrumentation Engineering,
- Computer Science and Engineering,
- Information Technology etc.
It is also a sister of core streams like
mechanical engineering, civil engineering etc. No engineering
discipline can sustain growth in modern days without the help of
electrical engineering. Almost all devices are fed by
electricity – anything mobile is driven by electricity.
Therefore electrical industry is considered to be the key sector
in any growing economy. The per capita production of power and
consumer goods is an index of prosperity of the country. This
index was extremely poor at the time India won her independence.
But by persistent efforts now India has achieved remarkable
growth in the field of electrical industry and its products have
gained global fame. The crawling infancy has been overcome. Now
we are looking forward to a bright and prospective future. With
this view, Hooghly Engineering and Technology College (HETC)
opened its electrical engineering stream.
The department is equipped with
- Well-furnished class-rooms
- Well-equipped laboratories
- Office accommodation.
The laboratories are equipped with sets of
experiments as per syllabi of West Bengal University of
Technology, supporting instruments & accessories and computers.
The department has a strong faculty base headed by a retired
professor of Jadavpur University. The faculty bas comprises of
young, dynamic and brilliant teachers who have passed from
reputed institutions. The college gives all possible privileges
to the teachers so that they may acquire higher education. Also
they are inspired to take part in seminars and workshops.
The library has adequate number of text and other books of
electrical engineering. The number of tittles and volumes are
being steadily increased with the growth of the institution.
