The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering –PG is functioning separately with effect from May 2006. The department has achieved many laurels and milestones in short span of time. The first batches of two PG Programs – ME in Communication Systems and ME in VLSI Design were admitted in 2005 with intake 18 each. Subsequently, both the programs have got NBA accreditation. The intake for ME –VLSI Design is recently increased to 30 from 18. The student projects have won many awards at national level. Research work undertaken by students and faculty have produced many high quality publications in journals with impact factors and quality conferences at national and international level. It is considered among the best departments in the college. The department has achieved 100 % placement and 100 % university results nearly all the times. The students have got 6 university ranks which includes 2 Gold Medals. Many of the students have received GATE scholarship of Rs 8000 per month through AICTE. Research work is undertaken in many frontier areas of Electronics, Communication, VLSI Design and Embedded Systems. AICTE has granted so far Rs 23.31 Lakhs under various schemes such as MODROBS, RPS, Stipend etc. The courses offered are designed and updated regularly in tune with industrial requirements so that students are placed at priority positions. Faculty is highly motivated and involved in higher studies and research activities apart from their classroom teaching. The classroom teaching includes power point presentations, video lectures, edu-sat lectures and webinars etc. apart from guest lectures by industrialists and other experts. Department has library exclusively for two PG Programs with a total of 1016 volumes of books, 187 CDs with recorded lectures of renowned experts from IITs and other Foreign Universities.
