      Talk on EVOLUTION OF ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING By Prof. Srinvasa Moorthy

      1200HrsRoom no. 33
      Prof. Srinvasa Moorthy from IIT Delhi is going to give a lecture session for first year B.Tech students (any one can attend).
      Electrical Engineering is one of the oldest disciplines evolved over a
      century. Lecture narrates its history by highlighting critical milestones. IEEE
      named the last century as electric century. At the initial stage generation,
      transmission, distribution and utilization was pursues based on fundamental
      concepts of Faraday Edison, Ampere etc. Fight between ac and dc was intense led
      by Edison and Tesla. Later electron devices spurred the ever expanding area of
      Electronics. Marconi pioneered communication revolution. Babbage’s computer
      concept today has heralded digital revolution. Renewable Energy and Efficiency
      have come to center stage due to climate change effects. Electric vehicles and
      driver less cars are becoming reality.
