The Amrita School of Engineering at Amrita began offering the B.Tech. degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering in 2005.

Student intake doubled to 120 by 2009. Apart from technical courses, the students are also encouraged to register for foreign language electives such as French, German or Japanese to equip them to be global industry players. The curriculum is updated from time to time as per the recommendations of the Board of Studies. This ensures that the students are at pace with the advances in technology. 

The department focuses on overall development of the students imparting soft skills through Projects and Seminar presentations and by encouraging Student's Association Activities and Industrial visits. Value education and Professional ethics are also an integral part of the curriculum.

Department faculty members actively supported the European Union funded research project, WINSOC, where a wireless sensor network was deployed for prediction of landslides. The technology deployed had several advantages over conventional technologies in terms of cost, size and power consumption. 

The Department prides itself on rapid growth and effectiveness in implementing a healthy learning atmosphere. It actively supports research and development activities such as paper presentations and inter-disciplinary projects which are indicative of work being undertaken by the department.
