Professor & HOD Electrical Engineering Department
It gives me immense pleasure to present salient strengths of the Department of Electrical Engineering, SIT, Lonavala. It may be my personal fascination, what I feel that the intimacy of this campus to nature ensures special warmth in the environment at SIT, Lonavala. Extraordinary activeness is observed all alike in students, faculty and staff.
Department of Electrical Engineering is determined to derive maximum benefits from these environmental dividends. On the strength of the true academic culture established over years in the Sinhgad Group, this department has taken initiative in achieving excellence in academic performance of students. Special emphasis is laid on the Teaching-Learning process. Efforts are taken to make the class room activity highly interactive. Special weekly brainstorming sessions are arranged for faculty to consolidate conceptual clarity and applications.
Students are encouraged to take up leadership roles in diverse ways. Electrical Engineering Students’ Association (EESA) offers an excellent platform for this. Alumni Association, Industrial Board and Academic Board in the department add vibrancy to the environment.
I wish every success to all the students, faculty and staff of the department and of the campus on whole.
Electrical Engineering Department wishes to be amongst top 10 in the SPPU.
At the Department of Electrical Engineering, we are all committed to achieve our Vision through an effective quality management system.
