The Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (EEE) is one of the major Departments of MEC since its inception in 2009. The department has academic programs with about 260 undergraduate students. The department is equipped with state of the art experimental and computational facilities.
Our VisionEvolve into an academy of excellence to serve the emerging society by bringing out the professional competence in the area of Electrical and Electronics Engineering.
At the end of their course, Electrical Engineering Graduates will have achieved the following values and capabilities :
Graduates will be:
Professor and Head of Department, Electrical Engineering
Head Of Department, Professor
Electrical Minds Forum (EMF) is the society of the students of the department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering. It aims to act as a bridge between the students and the strides made in the industry. EMF, the Electrical Association of Model Engineering College is the joint venture of the staff and students of Electrical and Electronics Department.
Electrical Minds Forum (EMF) of Govt. Model Engineering College is a noble attempt to create a platform on which one can discuss ideas, practice and articulate a shared vision for progress in the areas of interest. EMF will aid thought provoking interactions and motivate the students to excel. EMF will help in achieving career goals, technological innovation and continuous improvement. Our primary objective is to develop a passion in students for electrical and electronics engineering and help them achieve their goals. As an organization at the campus level, we aspire to create a platform for students to showcase their ideas and skills, assist them in their work and keep them abreast on all the developments in the field. In addition to enhancing the technical background of students, we also give due importance in developing their organizational and management skills. Our goal is to mould a smarter generation of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
EMF brings together eminent personalities from organizations of high repute such as Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB) and enables students to engage in interactions with them.EMF has initiated in conducting workshops, interactive seminar sessions,PCB design workshops, lectures consistently every year in MEC.
EMF also takes initiative in organising Industrial Visits for students of electrical and electronics department, in which the visit to Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant has raised the morale of the club among the students.

As part of our activity to bring engineering service to the society, EMF identified a tribal village, Uriyampettty in Kuttampuzha Panchayath of Ernakulam district. It’s a village with nearly 73 families who still hold on to their traditional way of life, in harmony with the dense forest in the Western Ghats.
Govt. Model Engineering College has made news repeatedly in the last near-thirty years of its magnificent existence. The college has always been at the forefront of innovation, cultural and community oriented activities, while continuing to be an indomitable force with regard to academic results, placement stats and advocacy of social causes.
The project was initially conceived as a 100kW solar power plant to meet all the needs of the college but received approval for a 30kW power plant on technical grounds. The installation a 30kW solar panel would reduce the contract demand by about 50kVA. With the solar power generating station expected to generate 40,000 units per annum, reduction in contract demand and savings in power consumption would mean an annual saving of Rs. 0.4 million for the college.
The 30kw on-grid solar plant has been constructed on 300 square metres of the total area of the rooftop of the main building. Hundred panels of 300W have been installed. Two on-grid inverters of 15kW installed as a part of the plant help in sending electricity generated directly to the grid instead of storing it in batteries. On working days, the solar power plant can partly take care of the electricity needs of the college, with the rest being supplied by the electricity board. During holidays, the plant exports the power to the grid.
The main idea of the project was to cut down on costs and solve the energy crisis. And the toil and labour have borne fruit. Where the electricity bills previously rounded up to Rs 1.8lakhs, it now reduced by around Rs. 30,000. In the long run, the college expects to become self reliant for its energy needs.
