Electrical and Electronics Engineering is a trans-disciplinary area and one of the broadest engineering disciplines. EEE students at ACET get abundantly familiarized with the generation, transmission, protection and use of electrical energy. Among aspects that the students learn and practise are design, analysis, prototyping, manufacturing, and maintenance of electrical generators, electric motors, transformers, transmission and distribution equipment, wiring and lighting, and electrical appliances. EEE courses focus heavily on analogue and digital electronics, power electronics, microelectronics, computer networking, consumer electronics and embedded systems. Special emphasis is laid on renewable energy sources such as photovoltaic and wind, in tune with emerging technological needs and challenges.
The curriculum for the four-year full-time (regular) B.E. (EEE) course has been developed by the Electrical and Electronics Engineering Board of Studies, Anna University, Chennai. Currently, Anna University Regulation 2017 (Choice Based Credit System) is followed. Regulation 2017 syllabus has been followed since 2017–2018.
