Department of Electrical, Electronics and Communication Engineering has effective member of various professional societies like IEEE, ISTE, and SEE etc. The department was opened NCU-IEEE-Firmware, a student Chapter for IEEE. IEEE is best known for developing standards for the computer and electronics industry. At NCU, we are now one among the rare 1300 student chapters that are part of the IEEE family. SEE is another departmental professional society. All students of EEC department are members of this society. The main objective of this society is to develop abilities among students in the technical as well as non-technical fields. The Society arranges many events and activities such as Educational tours, technical presentations, seminars, lecture series, Group discussion, Technical and Non-technical Quizzes, Debates, Essay writing, Brain teasers, Technical film shows etc. throughout the year.
Students are also encouraged to participate in the activities organised regularly by the Hobby clubs of the department, namely the Electronics Club and the English Club- Illuminati.
Brief Summary of CISCO Networking Workshop Organized by IEEE NCU Chapter

Industry Visit to Gas Insulated Powergrid Substation (Gurugram)
IEEE NCU Students Chapter organized an Industrial Visit for EE 4th Sem students to GIS Substation maintained by Power Grid Corporation Of India Limited, Sohna Road, Gurugram on 25th Jan’16.
Faculty Coordinators: Jyothi Varanasi, Pavan Khetrapal
This SUBSTATION is made to overcome the electricity crises and to meet the power demand of Gurugram region at Haryana.
Presently this SUBSTATION consists of 2 x 315MVA, 400/220kV Transformers which will deliver power of approximately > 550MW. The supply is step downed by two nos. of 315MVA Transformer from 400kV to 220kV & is fed to Haryana Vidyut Prasaran Nigam Limited (HVPNL) by four outgoing feeders.
This project is equipped with latest technology of GIS System, GIS stands for Gas Insulated Switchgear in which switchgear assemblies (CB, DS, ES, CT, PT etc.) are enclosed in a metal enclosed chamber which in filled with gas( SF6 gas) and the enclosure is earthed. The total land used in this project is 9.5 acres.
In this substation double bus single Breaker scheme has been used.The metal enclosure is made of non-corrosive aluminium. Due to light weight of aluminium, costly foundations are no longer required.

The NorthCap University celebrates International Year of Light
Year 2015 is being celebrated as the International Year of Light. One of the best engineering institutions in Delhi NCR, The NorthCap University, Gurugram celebrated this event by organizing a workshop. The SPIE-student chapter of NCU organized a One-day workshop on Optics to celebrate International Year of Light (IYL-2015) on 14 October 2015. Prof Ajoy Ghatak (formerly at IIT Delhi) and Prof Kehar Singh (Distinguished Research Professor at NCU) graced the occasion as the distinguished speakers. They enlightened the participants on various aspects of optics such as polarisation, laser, fibre optics, holography etc. They also spoke about some of the noble laureates in the field of optics and highlighted their contributions in providing crucial breakthroughs. In his opening address, Pro Vice-Chancellor of NCU, Brig. SK Sharma (Retd) emphasized the importance of optics in science and engineering and congratulated SPIE- Student Chapter of NCU for celebrating the International Year of Light (IYL-2015). In addition to the special lecture sessions, there were demonstrative sessions on holography and polarization, in which different types of holograms, polaroid, polarizing sheets etc. were demonstrated. This was followed by a quiz based on optics and its related applications in the field of science and engineering. The workshop was attended by more than 100 undergraduate and post graduate students from various colleges of NCR. The event witnessed an enthusiastic participation from the SPIE members and others. The aim of the workshop was to motivate and inspire the students. Interaction with the speakers was highly enlightening for the students. The relevant videos, impressive presentations and real-time examples had a tremendous impact on the participants who felt excited to pursue higher studies in the field of optics.
The event was coordinated by faculty advisor Dr Sunanda Vashisth, faculty coordinators Prof. AK Yadav, Ms Amanpreet Kaur and Mr Naman Joshi. The student coordinators were Mohit Yadav (President) and Neha Gosain (Vice President) of SPIE- student chapter.
SPIE (an International Society of Optics and Photonics) is an international society advancing an interdisciplinary approach in the field of science and application of light. The SPIE-student chapter at NCU has been actively involved in various academic and research activities since its inception. There are more than fifty NCU students registered as members in this chapter, giving it an edge in being one of the best private universities in Delhi NCR.
