High Voltage Laboratory:

At present more than Eight hundred colleges provide engineering education in India . Approximately three hundred of them offer undergraduate programs in Electrical and Electronic Engineering that include High Voltage Engineering. It is mandatory as per the guidelines of the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) that the laboratory facilities are to be provided for the programs which are offered by the colleges. However, very few colleges have high voltage and High Power Laboratory facilities due to the involvement of huge costs and availability of specialised faculty members as well as skilled staffs in the field of High voltage and High Power Engineering.

Computer Centre:

The ‘Computer Centre’ provides central computing facilities for the students, scholars and the teachers of the whole Institute and also offers M.Tech. on ‘High Performance Computing’ and Ph.D. on 'Computer Science'.
The Centre started as a server room in year 1986 to handle NIT Durgapur campus network. On November 11, 2002 additionally started working with new building as a central computing facility for the students, scholars, and the teachers of the whole Institute. In year 2014, started academic programs M.Tech. and Ph.D.
The research specialisations are digital image processing, image compression, quality of images, color image processing, load forecasting, bio-informatics, software engineering and agent based computing. The department maintains research environment with the dedicated and knowledgeable faculties and the well equipped laboratories with updated computing systems.
The Centre has necessary infrastructure like sufficient number of computer hardware, software, air-conditioned labs, and stabilized uninterrupted power supply. All these infrastructure are maintained by trained technical team members.>
The department has laboratories with a sizeable number of PCs and workstations running specialised engineering and scientific packages, like MATLAB, AUTOCad, STADD, IDEAS, PSpice, ANSYS, AFS, Sybase and PowerBuilder etc.
