Electrical & Electronics Engineering (60 seats):
Creativity has been the prime intension of engineers and the Electrical & Electronics Department is making all effort in this regard. The Department has not only the technical competence but also facilitated with all the modern euipments . the labs are well structured with modern machines and equipments with all protective provisions and help students to keep abrest with current developments in Electrical Engineering.
Electrical & Electronics Workshop
In this lab students could familiarize with the basics of electrical engineering and electronics engineering. As the lab is equipped with AC/DC power supplies, function generators, oscilloscopes, solder/desolder stations, digital stopwatches, breadboards, digital multimeters and different types of wiring cables and many other electrical accessories, students could understand them clearly. In this lab students are able to familiarize with all basic electronic components and also they could study about different wiring circuits. The purpose of this lab is for familiarizing basic concepts of engineering circuit analysis, and to illustrate and reinforce these concepts and provide hands-on experience to the students.
Electronic Circuits Lab
Integrated Electronics Laboratory is dedicated for under graduate studies. This lab provides the students with ‘hands-on’ experience in Analog System Design and Digital System Design, also this laboratory plays an important role in understanding and appreciating the concepts of electronic circuits.
Electrical Machines Lab
The electrical machines laboratory is equipped with DC machines like DC Motors, DC Generators etc and AC machines like Synchronous Motor, Alternator, Transformer, Induction Motor etc of both single phase and three phase types, industrial type synchronizing panel, etc., enabling our students to work in an industrial environment. The lab facilities are sufficient to conduct experiments as per University syllabus and much more relevant experiments. Electrical Machines Lab provides the students with experimental verification of the theoretical concepts studied in the two courses, AC Electrical Machines and DC Electrical machines along with its industrial applications.
Digital Circuits Lab
This lab provides the students with ‘hands-on’ experience in Digital System Design, also this laboratory plays an important role in understanding and appreciating the concepts and applications of digital electronics. This lab is equipped with training kits, IC testers, many logic gates, Universal gates and counters.
Measurements & Instrumentation Lab
This lab helps to equip the students with proper understanding of electrical measurements. This lab also helps the students to be aware of the precision and accuracy of different types of measuring instruments and measuring devices. The lab is equipped with a wide variety of measuring instruments and various transducers and instrumentation trainers, resistive, capacitive and inductive measurement systems, LVDTs and strain gauges, thermocouples and RTDs, Spot deflection Galvanometer, Wein-Bridge Oscillator and Wheatstone Bridge. The additional facilities in this lab are CT and PT and energy meter testing and calibration set up. The lab also contains many basic electrical variables and time measurement equipments such as frequency counters, digital stopwatches, digital multimeters, digital Anemometer, digital earth tester, electronic energy meter electronic standard cells and digital oscilloscopes.
Power Electronics Lab
The department of EEE is having a well equipped with Power Electronics laboratory which helps to study about the characteristics of different power electronic devices like SCR, TRIAC, power MOSFET, IGBT, Integrated Power Modules and Control Modules etc. It is also equipped with the Simulation Environment of MATLAB toolboxes.. These days’ power electronics find its application in almost all the fields of modern man. This shows the relevance to study about the power electronic components for the future engineers.
The department of EEE is having a well organised and well equipped microprocessor lab which helps the students undergo training, programming and also interfacing different microprocessors and micro-controllers. The facilities in the lab are 8085, 8086 and 8051 trainer kits. Simulation software like Matlab / Simulink are also available in this new generation lab set by the St. Thomas college of Engineering and Technology.
Apart from well equipped and sophisticated central library of St. Thomas college of Engineering and Technology, the Electrical and Electronics engineering Department separately owns a standard library. This department library has got enormous number of several foreign and well known publishers’ books and study materials related to electrical engineering along with the textbooks and reference books prescribed by the Kerala University as part of the Electrical and Electronics Engineering curriculum.
