The Department of Electrical Engineering started since the inception of NIT Meghalaya. Presently the department offers B.Tech, M.Tech and PhD program. The B. Tech program started in 2010 with an intake of 30 students andsince 2014 onward M.Tech program has been started with an intake of 20 students offering specialization in Power & Energy Systems. Presentlythere are full time and part time research scholars, registered for PhD program.
 
The Department aims to impart high quality education to the students and carry out fundamentaland industry oriented research work. The research interest of faculties encompass various areas of electrical engineering such as Deregulated power system, Soft computing application in power system control, Voltage stability alleviation under Deregulated Environment, Power Electronics & Drives, Control System and Instrumentation, Mechatronics, Embedded System, Non-conventional Energy system, High Voltage Engineering etc.
 
The department have well-equipped laboratory facilities to the students such as Electro-Technique Lab, Electrical Machine Lab, Network and Systems lab, Digital Electronics Lab, Power System Simulation Lab, Control & Instrumentation Lab, Power Electronics & Drives Lab, Microprocessor Lab, Microcontroller & Embedded Systems Lab.Specialised simulation softwares like Power Factory 14.1 (DIgSILENT), PSIM (Power Simulator), PSS@E (Power System Simulator for Engineers) are available with the department to develop the computing efficiency of the students and also to carry out research activities.
