ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT
The formation of the Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering was in the year 1995 with the introduction of an undergraduate course. The Department is affiliated to Anna University, Chennai. The Department has been accredited from April 2008 to June 2013 by National Board of Accreditation (NBA). The Department over the time has grown in several dimensions and provides a magnetic ambience in teaching and learning. The Department has the support of highly qualified, experienced and dedicated faculty members to offer good academic help to students and also constantly help our students to carry out their academic projects addressing the demands of society.
Apart from four years B.E program, the Department also offers a full time M.E program (Applied Electronics) in 2004. The Postgraduate study in ECE prepares students for leadership roles in research, development and design positions that require skill and imaginative engineering solutions.
The major areas of faculty expertise of the department include Biomedical Signal Processing, Communication Systems, Computer networks, Control Systems, Digital Signal Processing, Image Processing, Instrumentation, RF and Microwaves, Micro strip Antennas, Optoelectronic and Optical Communication, VLSI Design, Wireless Communication, Embedded Systems and MEMS.
The Department has signed MoUs with leading industries and organizations for establishing collaborative research, conducting Workshops, Seminars and for organizing International Conferences. Professional associations such as ECE association and life member in IOSR (Instrumentation society of India) for professional interaction.
Our students are always encouraged to take part in co-curricular and extracurricular activities in various state-level / national-level competitions including national level symposiums and international conferences.
The graduates from this department have become professional engineers, employed both in core and software companies. They are well represented at core companies, such as Robert Bosch, Qualcomm, Aricent Group, Wipro and as well as smaller start-up companies. They have become successful software developers and managers in the leading software companies, such as Thought works, Infosys, Cognizant Technology Solutions (CTS), HCL Technologies, TCS, and IGATE etc. Many of our students pursue higher education to obtain MS, MBA and PhD degrees in foreign universities. Also, some of the graduates working in Public sector units, such as BSNL, National Thermal Power Corporation(NTPC) Ltd, DRDO, ISRO, BHEL, BEL etc.
To transform our department into centre for excellence with high quality education in curricular, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.
To create an excellent teaching and learning environment with our potential to give satisfaction to our stakeholders and to equip contemporary skills to compete with the change.
