About the Department
The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering started its journey in July 2009. The first batch of Electronics and Communication Engineers graduated from the department in 2013. The M.Tech. Programme was launched in 2013 and the first batch of Post Graduates passed out in 2015. The Department so far offered a 4 years (8 Semesters) Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.) course in Electronics and Communication Engineering and a 2 years (4 Semesters) Master of Technology (M.Tech.) course in Electronics and Communication Engineering with specialization in Communication Engineering. From the year 2016 onward the Department has started offering Ph.D. programmes in Electronics and Communication Engineering in various fields, like Microwaves and Antennas, Optical Communications and Photonics, Signal Processing, VLSI, Sensor Systems etc.
Considerable effort has been put forwarded during the last few years towards setting up of new undergraduate and postgraduate laboratories and augmenting the facilities in the existing laboratories. The department is striving constantly for commendable performance in research and development works in the fields of Electronics and Communication Engineering. A good number of research papers/articles has been published in international and national journals and conferences.
To impart quality education and research in Electronics and Communication Engineering domain so as to provide sustainable and cost effective technical solutions of the pertinent challenges in the society.
Programme Outcomes (POs) and Programme Specific Outcomes (PSOs):
Departmental programs are well organized to provide the following outcomes. Programme Outcomes (POs) are general outcomes to all engineering programmes but there are some specific outcomes relevant to the specific engineering discipline known as Programme Specific Outcomes (PSOs).
Programme Outcomes (POs):
PO-1: Engineering Knowledge: Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, Electronics and Communication engineering fundamentals to the solution of complex engineering problems.
PO-2: Problem Analysis: Identify, formulate, review research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering sciences.
PO-3: Design/Development of solutions: Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
PO-4: Conduct investigations of complex problems: Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.
PO-5: Modern tool usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modeling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
PO-6: The engineer and society: Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.
PO-7: Environment and sustainability: Understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.
PO-8: Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.
PO-9: Individual and team work: Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings.
PO-10: Communication: Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
PO-11: Project management and finance: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.
PO-12: Life-long learning: Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.
