Welcome to the Department of Electrical & Instrumentation Engineering of Thapar Institute of Engineering & Technology! Ours is one of the oldest departments in the Institute.

It gives me immense pride and pleasure to introduce the Department. The Electrical and Instrumentation Engineering Department is one of the oldest departments (established in 1956). At present there are about 1200 students enrolled in various academic programs (UG, PG & Ph.D).

Our undergraduate program has always been known to be one of the best engineering undergraduate programs of the country. The department offers two Bachelor's courses: Electrical Engineering and Electronics (Instrumentation & Control) and three Master's courses: Power System, Power Electronics and Drives, Electronic Instrumentation & Control, respectively, as well as Ph.D educations in the same areas. Among the multiple areas of research faculty members are working in the field of Power System Operation & Optimisation, Power Converters & Renewable Energy, System & Control Engineering, Biomedical Instrumentation and Signal processing.

Our vision is to be a leading establishment excelling in higher education and research in the field of Electrical and Instrumentation Engineering to meet the aspirations of global community. We provide a very informal atmosphere between faculty and students. Faculty members of our department are engaged in teaching as well as in research.

I appreciate your concern in our department and would encourage you to stay in touch with us if you have any questions or suggestions.
