Evolve Better- Enhancing Employability Quotient along with Holistic Development.
The graduates in Electronics & Communication Engineering first have to understand the principles of Electronic Devices and Circuits, Network Analysis, Communication System, Signal & Systems, Digital Electronics, Control System, Microprocessors and Microcontrollers, VLSI systems, Electromagnetic Theory and then to use them for analysis, design and implementation of systems to make the life of mankind comfortable. The teaching of Electronics & Communication Engineering involves first learning the fundamentals of relevant subjects in depth and then to understand the complexities of various subjects such VLSI Design, Advance Communication System, Microprocessor and Micro-controller. The knowledge so acquired is later used to analyze, design and implement solutions to the problems which are complex and real time.
It is expected that pass out graduates will acquire sufficient knowledge and skills required for the continuation of receiving more and more technical education in order to gather more and more knowledge with a willingness to have lifelong learning. After acquiring sufficient knowledge in the fundamentals of engineering practices, experimental and laboratory skills, design, simulation and software tools for design etc. will make the student a competent Electronics Engineer. After imparting basic technical knowledge, in- campus training and workshops as well as industrial visit/tours are provided to the students for reducing the industry-academia gap. Therefore, the main objective of the courses offered at the undergraduate level is to build a sound foundation through fundamentals and then to create strong structures of knowledge in the technical and multi-disciplinary areas, which in-turn helps in building the professional ethics and moral values in the graduates.

The entity aims to provide students with field knowledge about Robotics. The SIG focuses more on project-based learning in addition to preparing the students to face the hurdles which usually come while implementing the algorithms. The SIG continuously work in projects along with students across all domains. The projects include quadcopter dynamics, balance bot and projects on Raspberry Pi &Arduino, which are the most popular prototyping boards among the budding engineers.
Digital Signal Processing (DSP) is concerned with the representation of signals in digital form, and with the transformation of such signal representations using digital computation. Digital Signal Processing is at the core of virtually all of today’s information technology, and its impact is felt everywhere — in telecommunications, medical technology, radar and sonar, and in seismic data analysis. The SIG focuses on imparting the DSP knowledge and bringing out different projects in the area of digital signal processing.
This SIG focuses on project based learning and training students to meet the emerging market challenges in the area of Communication (Like 4G, 5G etc)
It is a platform to encourage the innovative projects from robotic lab setup through e-Yantra Lab setup initiative (eLSI- IIT Bombay) in colleges across the country.

Club Believes: There are an endless number of things to discover about robotics. A lot of it is just too fantastic’s for people to believe.
The goal of teaching robotics is to adopt students to current production process, where the automation technology plays a very important role. However robotics system is considered beyond a working application.
Robots have become a popular educational tool in some middle and high schools, as well as in numerous summer camps, raising interest in programming, artificial intelligence and robotics among students

Virtual Labs is a project initiated by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India, under the National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology. The project aims to provide remote-access to Laboratories in Electronics & Communication Engineering students at all levels from under-graduate to research.
It also intends to develop a complete Learning Management System where the students can avail the various tools for learning, including additional web-resources, video-lectures, animated demonstrations and self-evaluation. There is also a component wherein costly equipment and resources are shared, that are otherwise available to only a limited number of users due to constraints on time and geographical distances. Seven IIT’s (Delhi, Bombay, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Madras, Roorkee and Guwahati), IIIT Hyderabad, Amrita University, Dayalbagh University, NIT Karnataka, and College of Engineering, Pune, are the institutions participating in the project.
SWAYAM is an initiative by Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India.

As engineering education differs from traditional education in the sense that it is a professional education which cannot be de-linked from practices going on in real world industries. So, apart from traditional engineering education, EC department faculty members have made special endeavors to include the following value additions.
From the current session onwards, the ECE students shall not have to move out for taking industrial training as ECE department is planning to start eYantra Robotics lab under the guidance of IIT Bombay and Virtual Lab division by IIT Delhi to conduct advance virtual lab tutorials, certifications and professional consultancies. This will help the students of the department to complete their course theoretical as well as practical within the premises of the ECE department.
In house training for extremely demanded international certifications like ISTE student chapter will be provided by ECE department faculty members. This addition has made it possible for the students to fulfill their dreams of getting industry sought, high values professional education supplemented with engineering education. This will increase their employment opportunities tremendously.
EC department is in the process of creating MOU with certain EC based industries to provide real life projects for the EC branch students. Year 2016-17 a group has made 3-D printer which has proved a milestone in the field of electronics and mechanical design. This process is already in the pipeline and it is expected that for the next coming batches, this facility will be made available.
The top scorers of each section are given opportunity to have on job training, where they gain hands on experience in latest telecommunication technologies like GSM, CDMA, Optical fiber technology, ISDN, Broadband technology, 3G, 4G, 5G. This training is very effective to get employment in the various private telecommunication companies.
Consistent interaction with the International bodies like IEEE, IET by publishing and presenting the research works by faculties of ECE department play the key role in value addition. The latest international & national conferences and technical seminars by industry experts are being attended by the faculties to update their technical advancement in their area of research. Our faculty team has good number of papers published in reputed journals having good impact factor and they are being motivated to have their own patents.
