Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering
The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) was established in the year 1986 and is accredited by NBA. The department offers undergraduate (UG), post- graduate (PG) and Ph.D. degree programs. The department has well-equipped laboratories in the areas of Electronics, Communication, IoT, VLSI, Artificial Intelligence and Data Science and is well-connected with industries. The department has signed MoUs with industries like Samsung R&D Institute India-Bangalore Pvt. Ltd., Altair Engineering India Pvt. Ltd., M/S Jasmin Infotech Private Limited, Intel Technology India Pvt. Ltd., Test and Verification Solutions India Pvt. Ltd, and EinNel Technologies, India.
The department has experienced and committed faculty members and is on the upward trajectory in terms of research. The focus of the department is to publish research papers only in WoS/Scopus journals with high impact factors. The available data stands as a testimony to the quantity and quality of our publications. Collaborative research work is carried out with top institutions outside India, which is an added advantage. A significant number of funded projects have been received from various agencies such as DST, DRDO, ISRO,CSIR and ICMR to the tune of INR 2.7 crore. Consultancy works in cutting-edge technologies such as antenna fabrication and machine learning are being carried out in the department. The rise in the number of published patents also validates the quality research in ECE department.
The faculty and students are also associated with professional bodies like IEEE and IETE to enhance their research activities. Further, the students of the department are encouraged to take up in-plant trainings, summer internships and full-semester project work at industries and the department ensures that all students who are eligible are placed on campus.
