The branch of Electronics and Communication Engineering was started in the year 1971 under the aegis of Electrical Engineering Department. The “Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering” came into existence in the year 1973. In 1987, Computer Engineering branch was also started and the department was renamed as “Electronics, Communication and Computer Engineering”. In 2003, the Department was again renamed as “Electronics and Communication Engineering” because of inception of “Computer Engineering Department” separately.
The Department is well equipped with the state-of-the- art laboratories and research facilities in almost all the domain of ECE engineering. Currently, the Department is offering B Tech, M Tech and Ph.D. Courses. The Ph.D. course is offered in the various specializations like Wireless Communication, Optical Communication, MIMO systems, Photonics Crystal Fiber Sensors, Security, Signal Processing, Speech Processing, VLSI, Embedded Systems etc.
The Department’s UG program B. Tech ECE is NBA Accredited for six years i .e. from Academic Year 2017-18 to 2022-23
The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering is offering a new undergraduate program in Industrial Internet of Things(IIoT) from the AY 2023-24. The curriculum of B Tech program in IIoT will focus on the technologies used for connected machines, devices, sensors, actuators etc in industrial applications like agriculture, healthcare, smart manufacturing, intelligent logistics etc.
