 Electrical Workshop

This is the basic lab that supports the study of beginners in engineering. The workshop store consists of common electrical devices & tools and various models of insulators, lightning arrestors, different types of lamps, megger etc. By means of these experiments, the student obtains the basic knowledge of connecting conductors, wiring different circuits etc.  These experiments help to provide them the base they require as electrical engineers.

 Electrical Measurements Lab

Basic Electrical Engg. Lab is to offer the xperiments related to various Theorems, characteristics etc. Of Electrical circuits. This lab is involved in all areas of study, related to measurement and calibration. It is equipped with all measuring instruments, phase shifting transformers, bridge circuits and induction coils. Here, in this lab, students learn to calibrate the meters, verify theorems, understand hysteresis characteristics and other important concepts related to metering.


  Electronics Lab

The Analog & Digital Electronic Lab has been designed to help students to understand the working of timer circuits, counters and basic components like transistors, diodes etc. and it also offers the students better acquaintance with programming language of microprocessors. The Lab is well equipped with Waveform generators, DC suppliers, Clock generator, Programmers and Signal Analyzers. Analysis and working of analog and digital circuits including FPGAs make the students competent enough to work with modern day electronic systems.
