The Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering in Government Engineering College, Wayanad was established in 2010 with an under-graduate programme. The department has well-equipped state-of-the-art laboratories to augment the coursework as well as to enhance the research potentials. The depleting fossil fuel resources and increasing environmental concerns on the increased emission of CO2 are demanding the invention of new technologies which are energy conscious. The new knowledge society requires continuous learning through novel approaches supported with research and development. Thus the department vision and mission reflects this by producing knowledgeable and committed technologists to serve our country and humanity as a whole. The hard work and sincerity are the strong pillars of success. Through our practices we strive to impress our students to inculcate these values and support the mission of GEC wayanad. The Institute is located in the hill range and near to the Tea estates of Wayanad , the high altitude district of Kerala bordering Karnataka and Tamil Nadu and the climate is extremely suitable for stay and study.
Our earlier students are presently working with multinational IT companies, private sector industries and public sector undertakings such as Kerala state electricity board (KSEB), Electrical Inspectorate. Many students are moving forward to M Tech and other higher studies and some of them became entrepreneurs. I welcome wholeheartedly our alumni to join hands in supporting our endeavours by all means of interaction. Our doors are always open to Universities, research organizations, industries and utility companies to collaborate with us in building a valuable knowledge society foreseeing the bright future.
The department has faculty who are not only dedicated in teaching learning process, but also are actively engaging in the research and developmental activities. They have a good number of publications in many international journals & conferences. Moreover, the faculty are dedicated to lead the technical societies such as IEEE, ISTE, Electrical Engineering Association by which the students learn leadership and interpersonal skills along with technical knowledge enhancement. They also have opportunities for social interactions through which many government aided institutions such as Govt. Medical hospitals are provided with technical expertise for updating their infrastructure facilities. Presently we have 13 faculty including two professors, one associate professor and ten assistant professors. There are 5 faculties who have completed Phd from IITs and NITs and some of them are currently guiding PhD students also.
