Today, electronics has changed the entire global scenario with its applications in different fields such as medical science, public transport, automobile, 4G and 5G communication models and energy sources. This has improved the day-to-day quality of life.

Learning Perspective

During the four years of this course, ECE students deal with fundamental subjects such as engineering mathematics, circuit analysis, signal analysis, analog and digital electronics design; also, applicable programming concepts such as C, C++, Java. Apart from a basic understanding of electronics, the course offers specialization in embedded system, communication system, nano-electronics, microwave engineering, image processing and satellite communications, etc. During the course, the university provides hands-on practice in various modern cutting-edge laboratories. Students enhance not only their hardware skills but also improve in software sections (Xilinx-HDL-VHDL, Verilog, Java, MATLAB, Tanner, and Various Circuit Simulation Tools, etc.) through minor projects in each semester. The ECE department also has a modern research and development cell for the students to implement their innovative ideas for the betterment of the society.
