About the Department      

The Department of Electronics Engineering came into existence in 1982 as an integral part of the Department of Electrical Engineering. It started B. E. Degree in Electronics Engineering in 1982 with an intake of 40. In 1996, the Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering separated from Electrical Engineering and started functioning as independent Department.

Presently the department offers one B.Tech program in Electronics and Communication Engineering and three M.Tech programs with specialization in Signal Processing, Microelectronics and VLSI Design and Communication Systems. The department is actively involved in research in different core areas leading to PhD degree. Beside this, department is also recognised as a QIP Centre for M.Tech and PhD. programs by Government of India. Presently, the department has 32 qualified and competent faculty members at different levels. The department has different research groups in the area of Digital signal processing, Analog and Digital circuit design, Data communication and networking, Wireless and mobile communication, High speed network, Optical communication network, Antenna, Sensors, Optoelectronic devices, Microelectronics, Microcontroller and Embedded system and so on.
