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.
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.
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
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
Digital Analog Integrated Circuits Lab
Microwave & Communication Engineering Lab
Fiber Optics Lab System Design Lab
Advanced Electronics Lab
