About Us


Founded back in 2005, this student-run department newsletter is the manifestation of an arduous vision to bring to fore the countless stories of dedication and tireless cooperation among brilliant individuals who remain in the background. Through its pages, you’ll discover this very ‘Background Hum’ which has sustained our department over the decades and taken it to glorious heights where it reins with its entire splendour today.

The newsletter serves as a medium to share and cherish the experiences and contributions of various department members, and also to disseminate information of interest to a diverse set of stakeholders. With our new team comprising of motivated editors and designers, we are excited to once again bring to you scintillating accounts of amazing people in our department as well as unique insights into global electrical engineering trends. This website is a one stop solution to find our previous and upcoming BackgroundHum issues and article posts. The comments and criticism of the interested reader are awaited eagerly by the newsletter team. You can reach out to us at bh@ee.iitb.ac.in.
