The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering was established in the year 2001. The department currently offers UG program with an intake of 120 students and two PG programs with specialization in VLSI & Embedded Systems and Communication Engineering with an intake of 18 and 24 students respectively.
Well experienced faculty members with expertise in the core areas of VLSI Design, Wireless Communication, Signal processing, Electronic Circuits and Embedded Systems put integrated efforts to nurture students in a good academic and research ambiance.
To update with the recent trends and developments in the field of Electronics, the department takes up the initiative to conduct various Seminars, Conferences and Workshops, with eminent speakers from reputed academia and industry.
The students are also provided value added courses in each semester to bridge the gap between academics and industry thereby making them capable of doing projects in core domains. Our students are placed in reputed companies like Infosys, Wipro, IBM, TCS, Tata Elxsi etc.
The department association 'EXPLORA' gives a platform for the young aspirants to organize various technical events apart from the curriculum.
In addition to the facilities required as per the academic curriculum, the department is equipped with Labview software & USRP kits and ARM controller with P-SoC. These have been procured through an MoU with Trident Techlabs and Eduvance Lab. The department also has to its credit a funding from IEEE foundation for the project 'A muscle to machine interface for assisting paralyzed person' headed by Dr. Sunil Jacob, Professor of ECE Dept. Several projects undertaken by the students are also funded by KSCSTE.
