Prof. Mainak Sengupta did his B.E (EE) from Jadavpur University in Calcutta in 1992. He did his M.Tech (Power Electronics and Machine Drives, Electrical Engg.) In january 1994 under Prof. K. Venkataratnam. In January 1994 he joined Ph D studies under Prof. K. Venkataratnam and Prof. Tapas K. Bhattacharya. He obtained his PhD degree in September 1999. In between, after completing the experimental work, he joined as a Lecturer in EE, in the then Bengal Engineering College (Deemed University) and is since teaching there. He is a Professor since June 2010.
He has supervised 7 PhD theses and 7 more PhD students are currently working under his supervision. He has supervised over 40 Master's theses and over 90 B.Tech students.Till date he has led in more than a dozen R&D projects as Principal/Chief Investigator, amounting to the tune of Rs. 8.4 Crores. He has 5 patents till date.
