Ph.D. Programme  

Bachelor of Technology

The Department exposes the undergraduate students to all fundamental and advanced technology in the field of Electronics and Communication. Some of the advanced papers offered in the curriculum are Fibre Optic Communication, Data and Computer Communication, Satellite Communication Systems, Mobile and Cellular Communications, Telecommunication Switching Circuits, Antenna and Wave Propagation, Optical Fibre Network, Intelligent Instrumentation, Bio-electronic Instrumentation, Advanced Microprocessor, Microelectronic Engineering, VLSI Design, Digital Signal Processing Architecture, Digital Image Processing, Random and Stochastic Processes, Information and Coding Theory etc. Besides these the students also learn various computer related papers. The syllabi are frequently updated to incorporate recent developments considering advancements achieved in the national and international scenario.


The Department has several well-equipped laboratories such as Fibre Optics Communication Lab, Microprocessor Lab, Advanced Communication Lab, Microwave Lab, VLSI Design Lab, Intelligent Instrumentation Lab, Antenna Lab, Circuit Simulation Lab, Wireless Networking Lab & DSP Lab, where students are given rigorous practical sessions. The students are also exposed to virtual laboratory simulation packages like MultiSim, CommSim, Ultiboard, MATLAB, LABView, Mdspice, Fidelity, NS-2, Cadence Design Tools, Active HDL and Synplify as well as to hardware assembly and testing practices. This serves to help the students in gaining practical exposure to these developing technologies. Undergraduate students have to successfully complete a departmental project spanning 3 semesters. Seminars are presented by the students, which give them an opportunity to develop their communication skills. The culmination of these efforts has been the achievement of nearly 100% campus placement in various leading industries and organizations for the last many years.

Master of Technology

The Department is currently running postgraduate programme with specializations in (a) Instrumentation & Control Engineering (b) Microwave (c) Wireless Communications (d) VLSI Design and Embedded System

The students are exposed to some of the specialized software tools such as Cadence design tools, IE3D, Microwave Office, Sonnet, Fidelity, Beampro, SystemView and NS-2 etc apart from various other software tools like LABView and MATLAB.

The department has devoted and qualified expert team of faculty members, who are continuously, involved in various research activities. The department is recipient of UGC assistance of 52.5 Lacs in the form of “Departmental Research Support” under the “Special Assistance Programme (SAP II)” of UGC. Several R & D projects are also being taken up by the faculty members of the department from various agencies like UGC, DST, AICTE, ISRO etc.

Around fifty full time/part-time scholars are registered in the department for Ph. D. programme.
