Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering

About the Department

The embryonic formation of the Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering was in the year 2000 with the introduction of an undergraduate course. The Department has been accredited by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA) and affiliated to Anna University, Chennai. The Department over the time has grown in several dimensions and provides a magnetic ambience in teaching and learning.

Apart from four years B.E course, the Department also offers two full time M.E courses (VLSI Design and Communication Systems) and Anna University approved Ph.D Research Centre to expand the scope of research focus of the department Students pursuing B.E in ECE have a full and flexible undergraduate curriculum.Numerous streams can be tailored to fit every individual’s interests, skills and career goals.ECE has gained a reputation for producing top-notch engineers for industry and academia.Postgraduate study in ECE prepares students for leadership roles in research, development and design positions that require skill and imaginative engineering solutions.

The major areas of faculty expertise of the department include Biomedical Signal Processing, Communication Systems, Computer networks, Control Systems, Digital Signal Processing, Image Processing, Instrumentation, RF and Microwaves, Microstrip Antennas, Optoelectronic and Optical Communication, VLSI Design, Wireless Communication, Embedded Systems and MEMS.

The Department has Centers of Excellence in the field of VLSI Design, Embedded Systems, Communication and Networks and Signal Processing.The Department has signed MoUs with leading industries and organizations for establishing collaborative research, conducting Workshops, Seminars and for organizing International Conferences.Professional associations such as ECE association and IEEE student chapter are developed for professional interaction.
