History and Features of the Department
Electronics and Communication Engineering department with a vision of “To Create Innovative, Ethical and Sociable Electronics and Communication Engineers”, was established in the year 1986 with an intake of 40. Over the years the department has increased its strength in student intake, faculty, result and placement. At present the department has a student intake of 60 for the bachelor degree and 09 for the M. Tech in Digital Electronics and Communication. The Department has a VTU recognized Research Center where 09 scholars are pursuing their Ph D degree. Thirteen well qualified and dedicated faculty members - 2 Doctorates and 11 M. Tech degree holders- a minimum experience of eight years- are serving in the department. The department has achieved three university ranks in UG and six ranks in PG since its inception.
In order to foster the technical and leadership qualities in the students the department has a student association ENCEA. Under its banner students engage themselves in technical talks by eminent personalities, guest lectures, cultural activities, and technical activities. National Conference “E- Congregation” is organized every year for the students. The departmental news letter ‘Abhivyakthi' is brought out in every semester.
The Department has well equipped laboratories, being upgraded with time and has a separate computer center with 64 Pentium - IV systems. VHDL, Microcontroller, Advanced Microprocessor and DSP Laboratories are equipped with simulators and hardware utilities. A separate mini-project laboratory has been established from the current academic year. Staff members are provided with separate faculty chambers and cabins. Wi-fi hotspots have been provided in class rooms, laboratories and faculty cabins.
