BE Electrical Engineering

BE Electrical Engineering is an undergraduate Electrical Engineering course. Electrical engineering is the branch of engineering where students learn the concepts and practical works of the electrical, electronics and electromagnetism. There is a range of the subtopics coming throughout the course such as power, electronics, control systems, signal processing and telecommunications. Basically, electrical engineering deals with the large-scale electrical systems such as power transmission and motor control. It is unlike electronic engineering which deals with the study of small-scale electronic systems. The duration of the course is four years and the complete syllabus of the program is divided into eight semesters.
