B.Tech Electrical Engineering syllabus is structured to get theoretical and practical exposure in circuit design, control systems, signal processing, conditioning, etc. The students are introduced to all the significant engineering streams and engineering fundamentals as foundation subjects in the first year. B.Tech Electrical Engineering subjects include basic English and other quantitative and reasoning modules to enhance students' communication and aptitude skills. 

Semester Wise B.Tech Electrical Engineering Syllabus

The main subjects of B.Tech Electrical Engineering include control systems, power electronics, sensor and measurement devices, signal processing, and much more. The curriculum is divided into four parts that incorporate the foundational courses in the initial semesters, core-based subjects combined with laboratories, and industrial projects in the following semesters.

The course structure for B.Tech Electrical Engineering isn't concrete and heavily varies from one university to another. AICTE recommends the course structures followed by private universities. The list below consists of a semester-wise split-up of the syllabus.

B.Tech Electrical Engineering Course Structure

In general, a B.Tech Electrical Engineering course is structured as a combination of core and elective subjects. The time is divided into eight semesters comprising fundamental engineering subjects in the first year. The course provides more focus on engineering, physics and mathematics. Aspirants will be introduced to electrical core subjects and choose electives based on their specialization and areas of interest and need to submit research-based practical projects at the end of the VIII semester. The course structure is:

  • VIII Semesters
  • Fundamental, Core and Elective subjects
  • Mandatory Internship
  • Project Submission
  • Research Journal Publication

B.Tech Electrical Engineering Teaching Methodology and Techniques

B.Tech Electrical Engineering encompasses different teaching methods that are required. Apart from the basic traditional lecture-based training, the students are also provided industrial ready training with electrical engineering labs, group projects, and other action-based learning methods. Students can either work as a team or work as individuals for the final year project that provides practical solutions to modern-day industrial challenges. The research project motivates the candidates for more in-depth research, understanding others’ perceptions, brainstorming, and providing adequate practical engineering knowledge. In short, the teaching methodology and techniques are:

  • Practical Sessions
  • Group Projects
  • Case Methodology 
  • Workshop
  • Industrial Visits
  • Industrial Internship

B.Tech Electrical Engineering Projects

Students can take up B.Tech Electrical Engineering projects on automotive designing, electronics, automation and manufacturing, and pure electrical. The project motivates the students to enhance their application skills in designing, developing, research-based analysis, circuit analysis, mechanics, and electrical devices. The students are trained to work with any product from start to finish, including circuit designing, research, and checking functionality.

Popular Electrical Engineering projects are:

  • GSM based accident control and monitoring
  • IoT based Robotics Project
  • Electric Bike
  • Photovoltaic Solar power generation 
  • Agricultural Robots
  • PIN Diode based sensor
