The primary objective of the department has been to impart quality education, training and research at the undergraduate, postgraduate levels in various areas of Electronics and Communication Engineering. The major areas of faculty expertise of the department include Communication Systems, Control Systems, Digital Signal Processing, Image Processing & Computer Vision, Multimedia Security, RF and Microwaves, Speech Signal Processing, VLSI design and Wireless communication under the aegis of the department’s R & D cell known as Bose Research Cell (BRC).
The Department Coordinator is Prof. Shobhit Verma. The Department has well qualified and motivated faculty. The faculty is working with great enthusiasm for teaching and research. The department has a strong faculty with 5 PhDs and 19 M.Techs. Many faculty members are pursuing PhD and some of them are in the final stage. In the last one year, faculty and students together wrote 3 books and more than 100 research papers in various Journals and Conference of national and international repute. Out of that 54 papers are from the students only under the guidance of faculty members. Department is equipped with state of the art labs with R & D facilities and uninterrupted power supply. A National level conference on “Latest Trends in Neural Networks and Digital Signal Processing” sponsored by AICTE was also held on 26th March 2010.
PROGRAMME EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES (PEO)
PEO I: To produce efficient electronics and communication engineering graduates with strong fundamentals in mathematics, science and engineering
PEO II: To provide students with a “hands-on” approach to electronics & communication engineering, so that graduates process the required needs under the realistic constraints.
PEO III: To inculcate leadership qualities in graduates with strong communication skills, competence to function effectively in multidisciplinary orientation teams, capability to assess and relate engineering issues to ethical, environmental and broader societal context. Course Snapshot
|Course Duration||4 Years|
|Eligibility Criteria||10 + 2 Examination with Physics and Maths as compulsory subjects along with one subject Chemistry / Bio-Technology / Computer Science / Biology with minimum 50% and JEE.|
The Course curriculum is followed as per the syllabus given by RGPV. Continuous effort is made to teach beyond the university prescribed course to add value and to keep pace with the cutting edge technology. A variety of optional subjects are floated in the elective subjects so that the students can choose courses according to their preferences. In the Lab courses value added experiments are encouraged beyond the prescribed syllabus. In the final year B.Tech project the students are doing their project work under the guidance of a Departmental faculty. Industry / R&D interfaced live projects are also encouraged by the department. Students are highly encouraged to write research papers / articles in good journals/conferences/workshops. Facilities
The Department has well equipped laboratories with modern equipment. Simulation softwares like MATLAB, pSpice are available for research related work. Modern equipment like spectrum analyzer, digital storage oscilloscope, antenna trainer, microwave benches, VSWR meters are available in the various Laboratories of the department. Some of the Laboratories of the Department are as follows:
- Digital Electronics Lab.
