The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering was established during the inception of the institute in 2002. The B. Tech. course in Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) was started with an approved strength of 60 students, and the intake was enhanced to 120 in 2006. Since its commencement, the primary objective of the department has been to impart quality education, training and research at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels in various areas of Electronics and Communication Engineering. In postgraduate level the department offers M. Tech. course in Communication Engineering (24 seats). The state-of-the-art laboratories and audio visual facilities complement the high standards set by the university syllabus and nurture the inclination of the students towards research and development, besides giving them the necessary and sufficient backing of practical knowledge that they need. The department has highly qualified and experienced faculty members. Students are encouraged to share their ideas and learning with fraternity of engineering students in the state through participation in seminars and workshops. Department conducts national and international Seminars and Symposiums every year. It gives an opportunity for our students to interact with other University students and share their views and technical knowledge.
The department of Electronics and Communication Engineering offers the following Under Graduate and Post Graduate courses:
||No. of Seats||No. of Semesters|
|B. Tech. in Electronics and Communication Engineering||90||8|
|M. Tech. in Communication Engineering||24||4|
B. Tech. in Electronics and Communication Engineering
Electronics has become an integral part of our lives; a basic understanding of electronics has become a necessity. Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) is an advancing field, with new ideas emerging every second.
M. Tech. in Communication Engineering
Another postgraduate course offered by the department is the M. Tech. in Communication Engineering. It is to develop communication engineers to meet the growing demands of quality manpower in the field of Communication Technology. The course enables:
The department has six well equipped laboratories to run the Under Graduate and Post Graduate programmes as per MGU syllabus and two add-on labs.
R & D Lab: Department provides plenty of opportunities to research minded students to sharpen their research skills. The purpose of this research lab is to ask questions and solve problems. Department has an exceptional resource, with unique capabilities.
