Department of Electrical Engineering
Indian Institute of Technology Bombay
The department is actively engaged in research areas ranging from practical implementation to theoretical investigations. Much of this research is funded by national and international funding agencies, both government and corporate. The research is published in leading international journals and conferences.
The Electrical Engineering Department is one of the largest departments in the institute and also in the country. Currently there are about 1100 students enrolled in various academic programs, about 200 project employees in various sponsored projects, about 30 technical staff, 30 administrative staff and about 60 faculty members. In addition, many prominent researchers/teachers across the world hold visiting appointments in the department.
The department, through the Electrical Engineering Students Association EESA, maintains regular contact with its alumni, many of whom are well-known and established in their careers across the world.
