Electronics and Communication Engineering

Communication Technology is driving our lives like never before. With IT improving system efficiencies, the demand for quality electrical and communication engineers continues to soar. Major IT and corporations are forever on the look out for qualitative talent. A talent that continues to imbibe new technologies and still develop newer ones. A talent that is comfortable with the latest hardware and software. Finally, a talent that has the creative ability to invent and innovate.

Access to Computing

Our students have access to some of the best learning tools that include 24x7 access to computing, digital library, internet resources and information services. Our students are programmed to be in sync with the evolving needs of the industry. They regularly visit leading IT Organisations in India and keep themselves updated with latest in the field.

Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs)
  • To enable the students to provide solutions to complex problems and to build new products by educating them with strong fundamental and advanced techniques.
  • To provide solutions to problems identified by giving training to the students related to area of specialization and develop innovative research oriented methods.
  • To enable the electronics and communication engineering graduates to continue higher studies in reputed institutions, to pursue standard research and to have successful career both in academic and industries.
Programme Outcomes (POs)
    On completion of the course the graduate students will be able to
  • Apply the fundamental concepts of electronics and communication engineering for analyzing, designing and providing solutions to this engineering field.
  • Apply the knowledge acquired in the electronics and communication engineering for developing high standard products for scientific and other engineering applications.
  • Adapt to thrust areas in information and communication technologies (ICT) to innovate new products and solutions to the problems related to new trends.
