Electrical Engineer’s Association of SHMEC (EEAS)
EEAS is the joint venture of the staff and students of Electrical and Electronics Department. It is a noble attempt to create a platform on which one can discuss ideas, practice and articulate a shared vision for progress in the areas of interest. EEAS will help in achieving career goals, technological innovation and continuous improvement. Our primary objective is to develop a passion in students for electrical and electronics engineering and help them achieve their goals. As an organization at the campus level, we aspire to create a platform for students to showcase their ideas and skills, assist them in their work and keep them abreast on all the developments in the field. In addition to enhancing the technical background of students, we also give due importance in developing their organizational and management skills. Our goal is to mould a smarter generation of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. EEAS brings together eminent personalities from organizations of high repute such as Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB) and enables students to engage in interactions with them EEAS has initiated in conducting workshops, interactive seminar sessions, lectures consistently every year in SHM.
Faraday Club was established on SHMEC in 2004 .The objective is provides facilities for co-curricular and extracurricular activities of EEE students.
