The Department of Electrical Engineering was started in 1955 as one of the three constituents of the Department of Engineering in Andhra University. The status of a Department was given in 1969. The department has grown significantly and currently offers a UG program in Electrical and Electronics Engineering and PG programs in Power Systems & Automation and Control Systems Engineering.
The department initiated developmental activities in the emerging areas of CAD and Robotics with MHRD grants. The department has well established Machines, Networks, Measurements, Power Electronics, Microprocessor, Control system and Digital Electronics Laboratories. The department is periodically organizing refresher courses for APSEB practicing engineers. The department had undertaken consultancy projects in collaboration with NSTL. The teaching faculty of the department are involved in research activities in the areas of fault detection, power system stability, load flows, optimal power flows, modal reduction, decentralized fault detection and flexible AC transmission systems. The current focus of research is on Fuzzy logic and Neural Network Applications.
