Electronics and Communication Engineering
The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering was established in the year 2008 with the objective of imparting knowledge in cutting-edge technologies of Electronics and Communication Engineering. The department offered its first graduate course B.E (Electronics and Communication Engineering) programme affiliated to Anna university with an intake of 60 students in the year 2008. Due to popular demand from the society, the total intake was further increased to 120 and 180 during the year 2011 and 2012 respectively. A post graduate programme in Applied Electronics was also instituted in year 2013 with an initial intake of 24 students.
Since its inception, the department has been fulfilling to the needs of the student community by imparting the latest and need based technical knowledge. The department has enough technical background besides well-equipped computer laboratories to give practical exposure to the students. The department has MOUs with five industries to provide industrial training to its students.
Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) is one of the largest and fastest growing fields of engineering. The present Global Technology revolution is changing the world and is offering challenging opportunities to specifically Engineers. Electronics and Communication Engineering has a vital position in this technology revolution.Electronics engineer must find new solutions to the practical problems affecting our daily lives. It covers a wide range of applications which make our life easier and enjoyable such as Television, Radio, computers, telecommunication, mobile communication etc. Electronics has a major role in improving productivity in industries like oil, energy, agriculture and so many other important sectors of economy. In steel, petroleum and chemical industries it is the electronic devices that direct, control and test production processes. Health care industry depends on electronic instruments to perform chemical tests and to check body functions.
There is a good scope for ECE engineers. The Scope is very wide open because the world is moving in the field of technology and developments. It has scope in almost every industry as every industry deal with electronics and computers.They can also find jobs with both private and public Telecommunication companies.They can find job in power sector, steel plants petroleum and chemical industry also.They have scope in both public and private sector with regard to installation, operation and maintenance of electronics equipment and systems.Defense, space and other organizations, which undertake research on a large scale basis, employ electronics engineers in developing and designing systems and devices for telecommunication and signal processing.They can go for PG Courses with various Specializations like VLSI Design, Embedded System, Communication Engineering, Signals and System, Microwave Communications etc.,Core companies offering jobs to Electronics and Communication Engineers: ECIL, DERL, BEL, BSNL, ISRO, NRSA Intel, Samsung Electronics, Sony, Toshiba, Philips Semiconductors, Texas Instruments, LG Electronics, Nokia, AMD, CISCO, NVidia, HP and IBM are just few to mention.
The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering was instituted in the year 2008 with the objective of imparting knowledge in cutting-edge technologies of Electronics and Communication Technology. Ever since the inception of the department, it has been fulfilling to the needs of the students by imparting the latest and need based technical knowledge. The department has enough technical background besides well-equipped computer laboratories to give practical exposure to the students. The department, headed by professors who are experts in their own disciplines, aims at educating and training students with sound knowledge and awareness in the latest trends in electronics, communication and information technology. The department houses student branches of professional bodies like IETE and IEEE. Student branches often conduct technical and non-technical events to motivate the students. These events hone the soft, technical skills , attitude and self-confidence of the students. Our mission is to drive the concepts into the minds of students and infuse scientific temper in the students and guide them towards research in communication engineering.Students are encouraged to participate in various activities like paper presentation, technical quiz, project design, project contests, sports, NSS, YRC, and cultural activities. Students are motivated to undergo In-Plant Training and many Industrial Visits are arranged every year to get industry exposure.
