Department Of Electronics & Communication Engineering

Department Profile:

The Department started functioning from the year 1979-80. Presently, the department has one undergraduate program (B.E) and two post graduate programs. The two post graduate programs are:
1) Digital Electronics & Communication.
2) VLSI and Embedded system.

The department is committed to continually improve and deliver competitive quality technical education to the utmost satisfaction of students, their parents and potential employers. It Started with an intake of 60. The percentage of results are increasing year by year. The intake is increased from 60 to 130. ISO certification and Accreditation by NBA was obtained in 2006.

Why a student has to choose this field:

E&C Graduates: Fresh graduates find opening in the telecommunication and the computer industry. A large majority of our graduates receive offers for employment at their pre final year of study. Students with a focus to enter higher studies enrol in to the PG courses in the same department at DSCE or join one of the IITs/IISc. Quite a few go overseas for higher studies and purse research

Career options for Electronics & Communication:

A growing and demanding population:

With DiGITAL REVOLUTION that has taken the world by storm, M.Tech graduates in the Digital Electronics & Communication stream have ample and challenging job opportunities in the county and outside. Bangalore city has been rediscovered for its technical prowess and has been chosen to be the hub for the silicon based Ultra Large-Scale Integrated Circuit Chip Manufacture. Job opportunities for postgraduates are going to be very exciting and rewarding.

New subjects/ areas of study:

To ensure effective teaching, 130 students have been divided in to two sections (Section A and B ) The students have toElectronics & Communication Lab have 85% minimum attendance in all subjects (as per VTU rules) which is being strictly followed.
The subject allotment will be done at the end of every semester. Staff will in-turn prepare the course file for the subject which they handle. The teachers have to prepare before the semester a lesson plan document and follow the same during the teaching.

Course file for each subject taught is being maintained by all the staff members . It includes syllabus, lesson plan, question papers of tests, scheme of valuation , university question papers, other materials for teaching etc.. Every staff member will maintain a file along with their personal details such as degree certificates, marks cards, experience certificates, seminars attended, papers presented, University work allotments, work load of the department.

Current Research Efforts

There is an R & D lab established in the department. The students are encouraged to do their projects by using the facilities in R&D lab and seven different laboratories of the department. List of Faculty members who are perusing the research work.

Overcoming Challenges:

Our goal is to ignite the passion for technical excellence. To create an atmosphere of true learning and enquiry and good values, which is possible only when there is freedom of thought, forthrightness, sensitivity, respect for others and responsibility. We aspire that our students should leave a mark in the world as good human beings and achieve great heights in their chosen field.

  • Electronics & Communication Class RoomTo bring out brilliant electronics and communication engineers who will achieve great heights and bring glory to the institute and to the nation.
  • Strengthen our faculty. add programs like faculty development program and encourage them to pursue research work in their field of expertise.
  • To increase facilities in laboratories particularly in VLSI and DSP fields.
  • Involve more alumni and parents in the departmental activities.
  • Developing the methods for improvements in results.
  • Encouraging the faculty to participate to conduct various seminars and conferences.
  • Student counseling and training in soft skills for their future careers.
  • Encouraging the students to take active part in sports, cultural and extra curricular activities.
