The department was started in the year 1962 with Under Graduate program of sanctioned intake 60, along with the establishment of the college. In the year 2003, department was recognised as a research centre by Visvesvaraya Technological University Belgaum to offer PhD and M Sc (Engg.) programs. Department also offers post graduate program M.Tech in Computer Applications in Industrial Drives, since 2004. The department was accredited thrice by NBA, New Delhi and in 2015, the department has been accredited for five years by NBA. The department has set up a centre of excellence in Process Automation and Control in collaboration with Schneider Electric, Bangalore and established NI LabVIEW Academy in collaboration with NI and National MEMS Design Centre, supported by NPMASS, India. The department has 17 well qualified and experienced faculty members with specialization in HVDC, High Voltage Engineering, Power systems, Power electronics, Illumination engineering, Control systems, Signal Processing and VLSI Design and Embedded systems. Six faculty members of the department are doctorates, four faculty members are pursuing research in different disciplines at different Universities and rest others are post graduates.Dr. Premila Manoharis Specialized in HVDC(Ph.D from IISc, Bangalore 1993-94), Dr. Pradipkumar Dixit is specialized in High Voltage Engineering (Ph.
