Department of Electronics & Communication Engineering

The field of Electronics and Communication Engineering encompasses a broad spectrum of technical areas, including Analog and Digital systems, Microelectronics, Photonics, Electromagnetic Fields, Control Systems, Communication systems, VLSI and Embedded Systems, Signal processing, Power Electronics, Microwaves and Antenna design. ECE Engineers invent new technologies and innovations in a range of fields, from nanotechnology to biotechnology, design high-profile technologies and products, including Medical Devices, Smart Phones, Tablets, Computers, Wireless networks, Optical networks, 3D television and High Fidelity Audio. ECE engineers find innovative ways to use electricity, electrons, electrical and magnetic phenomena (like radio waves and signals) and communication technologies to make people’s lives better. Pursue an exciting ECE Engineer’s career and make a difference by helping people worldwide.

The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) started in the year 1999 with the idea of endowing young people with the necessary technical knowledge and professional skills needed to address the challenges in the rapidly growing field of Electronics and Communication Engineering and promoting research in this area. ECE department is a vital and pulsating department with highly competent, experienced and dedicated faculty members. The department meets the growing requirement of practical design engineers in the country and abroad. The curriculum in Electronics and Communication Engineering, framed by Visvesvaraya Technological University, lays greater emphasis on design principles and development of communication models, signal processing, image processing, VLSI and embedded systems.

The Department offers B.E in Electronics and Communication Engineering with an intake of 120 students, M.Tech in VLSI Design and Embedded Systems and M.Tech in Electronics with an intake of 18 students. The major areas of faculty expertise of the department include Digital Electronics and Communication Systems, Optical Communication and Networks, Signal Processing, Image Processing, Power Electronics, Microwaves, VLSI and Embedded Systems. The department houses a Research Center affiliated to Visvesvaraya Technological University with 14 students pursuing their Doctoral Programs. The state-of-the-art laboratories in the department complement the high standards set by the competitive syllabus and nurture the inclination of the students towards Research and Development, besides giving them the necessary and sufficient backing of practical knowledge that they need for industries. The Department provides access to high end software like Xilinx, Mentor Graphics and MATLAB.

ECE Department is actively involved with the student’s growth through regular Parents-Teacher interaction, Distinction Award Ceremony for high achievers, extra coaching for tough subjects and weak students, regular workshops to enhance students skill set. The Technical co-curricular and extra-curricular activities of the students covered through FELCOM (Forum of Electronics and Communication) include participation in Paper Presentation, Circuit Design, Robotics Contest, Mock Interviews, Seminars, Quiz, Technical competitions, Project Presentation. Also cultural and sports activities conducted through FELCOM include events such as Sports Day, Teachers Day, Fresher’s Welcome, Farewell to Final Year students and Pooja celebrations. A strong positive reputation of the department draws reputed core companies such as Videocon DTH, 6G Technologies, Cranes Software, NTT Data, Mphasis, Accenture, others for campus recruitment. Those candidates desiring to pursue further studies are also doing well in their respective fields. The qualities inculcated in students make them not only good engineers but also good human beings.
