The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering was launched in the year 2001 with Undergraduate Programme (B.E.,) and sanctioned student intake of 60.The Postgraduate Programme (M.E.,) in Very Large Scale Integration Design (VLSI Design) was started in the year 2010.The Syllabi prescribed by Anna University, Chennai are followed for both B.E and M.E Programme. The major areas of these programmes include Digital Electronics, Electronics Circuits, Signals and Systems, Communication Theory, Digital Signal Processing, VLSI Design, Optical Communication, Advanced Wireless Communication, Satelite Communication, Digital Image processing etc.
The Department of ECE is endowed with a team of qualified and experienced teachers having specialized in varied fields like VLSI Design, Communication Systems, Applied Electronics etc. They are all committed to provide a positive and a professional learning environment where students are inspired to become innovative and competent Engineers.
The Department of ECE is well equipped with the state-of-art Laboratories catering the academic needs of Students and Faculty. Major Laboratories of the Department are: Electronics Lab, VLSI Lab, Digital Signal Processing Lab, Digital Lab, Optical and Microwave Lab, Microprocessor and Microcontroller Lab, RF and Communication Lab. Besides the College Central Library, the Department Library is also serving as a primary source of reference to the students. Apart from regular Lecture classes and laboratory work, the students are involved in several co-curricular activities such as Technical Symposium, Project Display, Value Added Courses, Guest Lectures by eminent scholars with varied specializations, Training programmes,Career awareness programmes , Product development and Industrial Visits. The Value- added courses include interdisciplinary topics such as Embedded System Design, Hardware Modeling using Verilog, Machine learning with MATLAB, Internet of Things (IoT), PCB Design, Microwave Engineering and Digital System Design. The students are motivated to attend the Inplant Training in various companies for enriching their knowledge, technical skills and Professionalism.
The Department has signed two Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with LiveWire, Trichy and BSNL, Trichy . The MoUs are facilitating the students in Placements, Project Work, and Internship Programs and facilitating the Staff in Faculty research and Consultancy Services. The department is one of the active members of the National Level Professional Society, Institution of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineers (IETE). An IETE Student Forum has been organized in the Department and several co-curricular activities such as Paper Presentation on Current Topics, followed by Group Discussions, Quiz Competitions, Guest lectures, Project Expo etc., are conducted for enriching the knowledge of the students on current Technological Advancements.
The Commitment of the Teachers, laboratory facilities and the library facilities of the department coupled with co-curricular activities exposed to the students are the driving forces that make the outgoing students more innovative, hardworking and skillful engineers of our country.
