About the Department

 

Established in 1997, the Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering is one of the oldest departments in the University. Starting with an M. Tech. programme in Electronics Design and Technology, the department has subsequently introduced another M. Tech. programme in Bioelectronics under the Teaching and Research in Interdisciplinary and Emerging Areas scheme of the University Grants Commission. The department expanded its academic activities to undergraduate programmes, first with a B. Tech. programme in Electronics and Communication Engineering in 2006 followed by another B. Tech. programme in Electrical Engineering in 2014 (which, since September 2016, is being offered under the newly formed department of Electrical Engineering).  The department also has an ongoing three year diploma programme in Advanced Diploma in Healthcare Informatics and Management under the career oriented scheme of the University Grants Commission. In addition, the department offers Ph.D. programme in different areas including Signal & Image Processing, Bioelectronics, Biosensors, Microwave Engineering, Communication Engineering and Microelectronics. At present, the department has a student strength of about 400.
