These courses pertain to the broad disciplines of electrical power engineering and electronics engineering. An electrical engineer is concerned with the generation, distribution and use of electrical power, power control and instrumentation applications. An electronics engineer deals with the application of electronics in the processing of information in the fields of communication and control systems, electronic computers, industrial electronics and instrumentation. The specializations at six IITs, IT-BHU, Varanasi and ISM Dhanbad offering this course are listed below.
Electronic Systems, Control and computing, Communication and Signal Processing, Microelectronics, Power Electronics and Power Systems.

The B. Tech. programme in Electrical Engineering at IIT Ropar attempts to provide the students with a balanced exposure in the four major areas of the discipline:
1. Electronics engineering & computer technology
2. Analog & digital communication engineering
3. Control engineering & instrumentation
4. Electric machines & power engineering
The core curriculum of the undergraduate programme includes at least two core theory courses and two core laboratory courses in each area. This is subsequently augmented with suitable electives in the third and fourth year. Currently popular electives include VLSI, embedded systems, digital signal processing, medical electronics, digital communication and optical communication. Undergraduate projects included as part of the final year curriculum emphasis experimental work and exposure to hardware in all four areas.
Electrical Engineering at IIT Gandhinagar is a blend of teaching and research activities pertaining to both Electronics and Electrical Engineering. A diverse range of theoretical and laboratory courses are offered. The Department firmly believes in imparting a strong handson flavor to the courses that a student takes, and therefore places emphasis on the laboratory component, internships and projects. The Department has a healthy mixture of young and experienced faculty members, all of whom display high levels of enthusiasm and dedication. Students carry out summer internships at reputed academic institutes and industries. More than 20% of these internships are at foreign universities.
