The Institute was set up in the year 1988 at Nasik Road, Maharashtra, for imparting training to Electrical Engineers of Indian Railways and other departments involved in train-operation. It is located at Nasik Road, about 188 Kms Northeast of Mumbai.The institute is headed by the Director General. He is assisted by a team of nine faculty members, who are having practical experience as well as technical qualifications.
As laid down by the Railway Board, the Institute imparts training as a statutory measure to:
1. IRSEE Probationers
2. Integrated orientation course for Group-B Officers in all aspects of the working of Electrical Department before their absorption in Group-A services.
3. Senior Professional Development Course for Junior Administrative Grade officers prior to there being considered for promotion to Selection Grade.
In addition the above, short term special courses are also being conducted throughout the year on specialized subjects with the latest technical know-how and as requests received from zonal railways.
With the commitments ranging across many facets of electrical engineering applications, IRIEEN is becoming increasingly aware of its role in training officers in state of art technology. Courses covering most aspects of railway electrical engineering from basic to advanced levels are held throughout the year. IRIEEN is flexibly responding to rapid changes of today and preparing engineers for a new era.
For achieving the above objectives IRIEEN has developed world class infrastructure.
