Electronics & Communication Engineering

The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering has strong administration, infrastructure and dedicated team of Faculty.
The department is keeping pace with the fast changing technology of electronics and communication in terms of its teaching program and laboratory activities. In addition to core electronic subjects, software based subjects are also included in the syllabus which makes this course suitable for core electronics and many IT industries.

History of the discipline:
Electrical Engineering in fact took shape in the Department of Physics in the U.S. Universities in the later part of the last century. Thomas Alva Edison has shown electrical Light to mankind in 1881 & soon the poles were being erected to carry Electricity to homes. It became a booming service & utility industry. The discovery of Telegraph by Morse & Telephone by Alexander Graham Bell as well as invention of Electro Magnetic field by J.C. Bose and Marconi paved the way for Communication Engineering. Electronics started with the discovery of thermionic emission in the form of vacuum tubes, which were totally replaced by Transistors discovered by prof. Bardeen and Shockley. Today the early form of Transistors have undergone sea change and have become very tiny. Millions of them sit in a chip LSI & VLSI. Such IC Chips form the backbone of Electronics, Communication and Computer Engineering


Present status:
By now Electrical, Electronics and Communication Engineering have grown beyond recognition and in the process several mutations have occurred giving rise to about 354 organized disciplines of study belonging to the basic and generic knowledge in Electrical Engineering out of which one of the most important area comprises of Electronics & Communication Engineering. Imagine on the one hand the gigantic power generation, extensive network of transmission and distribution, the drives hauling the trains and keeping on move all the limbs in industries and on the other hand the tiny crystal displays, HDTV, SMS, VMS and what not and a host of electronic items in homes, offices, industries, defense establishments, hospitals and all other places one can think of.

They have born out of the conjugation of Electrical, Electronics and Communication Engineering and are omnipresent. In fact the index of prosperity is measured by per capita consumption of electricity. Through this course students shall be trained in the basic and generic knowledge of Electrical Engineering along with the fineness and sophistication of Electronics.

Effects and use to the society
This program has been designed to generate a synergy between the basic, robust and generic knowledge in Electrical, Electronics & Communication Engineering. It is well known that Mathematics is the queen of the science. Similarly electronics has become the darling of all Engineering and Technology disciplines. On the substrate of the knowledge of Electrical & Communication Engineering and thus the Chips so created offer smarter services to the society with subtle beauty, efficiency and reliability.

This programme aims at providing education in Electrical Science, Circuit and Network Theory, Signal Processing, Transistors, MSI, LSI, VLSI, Communication on land, sea and sky, Satellite Communication, Telematics, Guidance & Control System, Electromagnetic Fields, Microwaves, Radars, Fiber Optics, Computer communication, Network Architecture, Microprocessor, ECAD and Consumer Electronics etc. There are a number of subjects common to Computer Science and Information Technology Engineering, Industries and service sectors are looking for Engineers, well versed in this area.

The department has well equipped labs with many sophisticated equipment such as HP Spectrum Analyzer, Tektronix FFT cum DSO, Logic Analyzer etc. To cater for computing requirement, department has networked computer lab with HP Deskjet PCs, Lenovo PCs, IBM Think Centre PIV PCs, a Higher End IBM Server. There are seven labs in the department as listed below:

  • Audio Video Engineering Lab
  • Basic Electronics Lab
  • Digital Electronics Lab
  • Computer System Lab
  • Digital Electronics & Microprocessor Lab
  • Microwave Lab
  • Electronic System Design & Mini Project Lab
