Industrial Power and Automation

Electrical engineering is the largest field in the Engineering profession, approximately one thirds of the world's engineers belong to electrical engineering. The current industrial scenario for an Electrical Engineer demands to have a detailed knowledge about Modern Electric Drives, Process Control Methodology, SCADA Systems, Plant Automation, Load / Power Factor Controllers etc. used in industries as it is a necessity for integrating these devices and systems with Electric Power Control.

Upon considering future demand Department of Electrical Engineering at National Institute of Technology, Calicut has started a Masters course on Industrial Power And Automation (IPA), previously known as Computer Controlled Industrial Power ( CCIP ), which provides sufficient theoretical and field experience on the above systems to the electrical engineers. Various research activities and consultancy projects are also under taken by the Industrial Power group.

This program admits students with B.Tech degree in Electrical Engineering, Electrical And Electronics Engineering, Electrical Instrumentation and Applied Instrumentation with GATE qualification in either Electrical Engineering or Instrumentation Engineering.

This program also admits sponsored candidate from Industries, Research Institutions and Educational Institutions without GATE score.
