Department of Electronics & Communication Engineering


Introduction Faculty Laboratory Library Achievements Events Placement Research


        In order to meet the wide ranging, challenging and very rapidly growing Global Demands for "Professional Electronics and Communication Engineers" in this Hi-Tech Era, the Department of "Electronics and Communication Engineering" was established since inception of the college in the year 1999. National Board of Accreditation (NBA) has accredited the B.E-ECE programme for a period of 3 years. Initially, the annual intake was 60. In tune with the growing demand profile globally for ECE, the intake level was enhanced to 120 in the year 2000–01 and 120 to 180 in the year 2012–13.

In a very short span of time since the Department was launched in our College, it has made a name for itself, among the Top few Colleges, at the University level, through Seminars, Symposia, Workshops, and Conferences and also through its performance in the Examinations and Placement.

The First year Core Curriculum begins with a common knowledge base and customizes Students by grounding in basic Engineering Foundation and in Critical Hands-on Skills in Engineering Practices. The Course has access to enhance the Learning, Student Perspective and Experience to develop Specialization in areas of 'Electronics and Communication Engineering'. Class room learning is complemented by practicals in Hi-Tech Labs, Projects and Hands on Experiences, so as to foster knowledge in .Engineering and Technology.

        • Department of ECE is recognized as Research centre by Anna University, Chennai.

        •The Department strives to develop long Term relationships with Industries and market the Student's Talents effectively. The Students are thus provided high level 'Leads and Pathways' that enable them to gain access to a broad range of 'high potential' and 'hi-tech' Career Opportunities.

        • In a very short span of time since the Department was launched in our College, it has made a name for itself, among the Top few Colleges, at the University level, through Seminars, Symposia, Workshops, and Conferences and also through its performance in the Examinations and Placement.

        • The Department has well-qualified Faculty Members with various specialization relevant for the industry.

Programmes run by the department are,
        • B.E.- Electronics and Communication Engineering
        • M.E.- Communication Systems
