Introduction to Electrical & Electronics Engineering

Electrical and Electronics is a branch of engineering concerned with the practical application of electricity in all its forms, including those of the field of electronics. Electronics is that branch of electrical engineering concerned with the uses of the electromagnetic spectrum and with the application of such electronic devices as integrated circuits and transistors.

The distinction between electrical engineering and electronics is usually based on the comparative strength of electric currents used. In this sense, electricals are the branch dealing with ‘heavy current’ that is electric light and power systems and apparatuses whereas electronics deals with such light current applications as telephone and radio, etc. Electrical & Electronics engineering is a growing and one of the most sought disciplines with the electrical engineering and electronics engineering.

Few lines about B.Tech/BE Electrical & Electronics Engineering

The B.Tech/BE Electrical & Electronics Engineering is an undergraduate course that is divided into 8-semesters. The course indulges in the study and application of electricity and electronics. The course is designed to provide skills and knowledge about the electrical, electronic and computer-based systems.

The main aim of the course is to impart the knowledge on certain aspects of fundamental, electrical engineering and its wider applications in electronics engineering. The course deals with the basic engineering concepts and its application in various electrical machinery and various related fields such as designing of an electrical circuit, automation, vehicle manufacturing, electronics design, smart city planning, smart grid, etc.

Eligibility of B.Tech/BE Electrical & Electronics Engineering

The students who have passed PUC or 10+2 with a science background can join the B.Tech/BE Electrical & Electronics Engineering course. The students interested in joining B.Tech course are required to qualify the competitive exams like CET/COMED-K/JEE with high marks in order to get merit seats in various colleges.

Admission Procedures

The students with relevant qualifications can join B.Tech/BE courses by two modes. The first one is Merit based admission and the second one is Direct admission.

Let’s discuss in detail

Merit Admission

The students who are interested to join B.Tech/BE Electrical & Electronics Engineering degree should mandatorily appear for CET/COMED-K/JEE or institutional-based entrance exams and undergo counselling to choose their desired colleges for merit seats. The engineering college allotts the merit seats to the students according to their rankings and marks obtained by them in their entrance exams and marks scored in PUC or 10+2. 

There are two types of counselling for the B.Tech/BE students

1. Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) Counselling

The students who are interested to join the government engineering colleges and other engineering colleges affiliated to the government should undergo the counselling procedures of Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA). 

The students who intend to join for the merit seats under government quota are required to complete the counselling procedures and join for the B.Tech/BE programmes in their chosen colleges. The Engineering colleges under the Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) are affiliated to the Visveswaraya Technological University (VTU).

2. COMED-K Counselling

The students who are interested to join the private autonomous engineering colleges and deemed universities that are affiliated to All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) are required to apply for the COMED-K counselling procedures. The students should qualify the COMED-K counselling procedures to get admission to their desired private autonomous engineering colleges or deemed universities for Engineering programmes. 

Direct Admission  

The students have another option of getting admission to B.Tech/BE Electrical & Electronics Engineering course by direct admission process. Under this mode of admission, the students are given direct admission to their desired colleges under management quota. The direct admission students enjoy many special privileges like that they are not required to apply for any entrance exam for getting admissions. They have an option to choose their desired colleges and universities and book their seats in advance even before the starting of the academic year. The students who are interested in direct admissions are required to contact Galaxy Educational Services for more details.
