HOD Electronics and Communication Engineering Department
The Department of Electronics and Communications Engineering was established in the year 2013 along with the Institution to facilitate the transformation of Electronics and Communications Engineering students into good human beings, responsible citizens and competent Engineers with strong moral and ethical values. Currently, our department is offering B.Tech course in Electronics & Communications Engineering with an intake capacity of 60. The fundamental goal of our department is to provide a holistic platform for the students that can help them to achieve academic excellence through innovative and quality education of high standards. The department tries to ensure intellectual, ethical and social development amongst the students. It helps the students to cope up with the post-placement dilemma by providing a self-sustaining atmosphere. It has IEEE student chapter and “Illuminati”, the ECE Association to nurture and culture the talent and organisational skills of the students.
The Department has a unique blend of quality conscious staff members with a strong sense of ethical and professional responsibility. The department faculty work with excellent team spirit in different technical team like Communication, Signal Processing, VLSI and Embedded System, which leads to key research publications in these areas. Our labs are equipped with modern software and equipment. Softwares like MATLAB, XILINX, CCS, ADS, SysView and CADENCE are available in the department. Our advanced labs, with their state-of-the-art facilities in the respective domains, give our students a cutting edge in technical exploration and enhance their information search and analysis skills. We organise seminars, Faculty Development Programmes and Workshops on a regular basis from 2013 onwards. Students are also encouraged to join various technical and non-technical forums, which in turn gives them horizontal exposure to Engineering concepts and technology. We always try to inculcate the much-needed leadership qualities along with the integral technical education such that our students can be job creators rather than job seekers.
The professional and emotional hand-holding provided to each student by our strong mentoring system helps them in their journey towards academic fulfilment. The department also has a very good advisory system, class committee and PTA which helps in maintaining student -teacher-parent relationship. The Department offers various add-on training, placement drives and foundation programs to inculcate a culture of teamwork and leadership qualities for achieving excellence in every walk of life. Department offers various hands-on training programs to the students to cater the needs of the industry and to bridge the gulf between academia and industry. Some of the highlights of the department are:
1) Personality development training
2) Soft skills training
3) Exclusive Placement oriented training programmes.
4) Training on current trends
5) Web-hosted Aptitude Tests and Technical Training
6) 8 am to 10 pm Lab access for Projects and Innovative works
The department is committed towards imparting quality education and developing future technocrats in the stream of Electronics and Communication. It is focussed towards its mission of facilitating student’s progress by providing the solid foundation in core concepts as well as inculcating essential values of professionalism and ethics. The Department is wide open to creative ideas and innovative methodologies to establish itself as one of the most hunted learning centres in the state.
