Electrical Designing and Drafting

Electrical Designing and Drafting is a major area where students are given an in depth knowledge in various areas in Electrical side of all kinds of buildings and Distribution systems. This course intends to make the candidates to professionals who can design or manage the electrical activities of building systems or distribution systems with maximum energy utilization.

The each and every topic in this syllabus is explained with the ongoing construction projects or examples. The project oriented training helps the candidates to understand the topics easily. The practical lab sessions makes them design and draft the electrical projects independently.

Course Duration-70 hours

Covers Electrical and Fire system Design and Drafting with Onsite training.


M-tech/ME, BE/B-tech in Mechanical/Electrical Engineering, Diploma in Mechanical/Electrical, Degree etc. Those who are waiting for final semester result as well as those who have to attend supplementary examinations may also apply.

About Certification

Certificates are approved by FSAI (Fire and Security association of India), ISO 9001:2008, Indian Green Building Council.

Employment Opportunities

Graduates may find employment different areas of building services and Related Operations etc.


During this course period, a mini project and a main project are given to the candidates independently. The candidates have to work that out with the proper designing concepts and present it with complete design and estimation report. The faculties are always available to assist the candidates for their project.
