Electronics & Communication Engineering

           Electronics engineers are responsible for developments in a wide range of technologies - from portable digital music players to the hi-tech Global Positioning System (GPS), which can continuously track and help locate anything, anywhere across the globe. Electronics engineers design, develop, test, and supervise the manufacture of electronic equipment such as broadcast and communications systems. Many electronics engineers also work in areas closely related to computers. However, engineers whose work is related exclusively to computer hardware are considered computer hardware engineers. Electronics engineers specialize in areas such as communications, signal processing, and control systems or have a speciality within one of these areas - industrial robot control systems or aviation electronics, for example.

Job opportunities

      There is an increasing demand for people with the knowledge and skills to design, build, test and develop electronic products and systems. An electronics engineer can be employed in various public and private sector organizations such as the Indian Telephone Industries, MTNL, National Physical Laboratories, AIR, Civil aviation, and the police wireless departments. Electronics engineers are also absorbed into the entertainment, media industry, research establishments, and defence. They can also take up teaching and research in one of the many engineering colleges in India or abroad. It is a well-known fact that ECE is the most sought after group in Engineering which obviously translates to the fact that ECE students get placed much easily than students from other disciplines.

Faculty

   The department has a rare blend of very dynamic youngsters guided by a group of eminent and experienced professors. Faculty members regularly attend many workshops organized by IIT's, IISC, ISTE and other institutions.

About the department

   The department has well qualified and experienced staff and it continually updates it's laboratories with modern facilities. The department conducts various seminars periodically. Various associations are formed related to the department. The students are given different mini-projects in the pre-final year so that their individual ideas can be implemented. The staff and students are encouraged to present papers at various colleges and many have won prizes in the face of stiff competitions.

Laboratory facilities

Each laboratory is fully equipped to meet the requirement of Anna University Syllabi. The students can train themselves in the Laboratories with the guidance of the faculty during and after the college hours. The department is feathered with seven different laboratories, viz
