About the Department

The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering was started in the academic year 2008-2009 with an annual intake of 60 students. The intake was subsequently increased to 120 students in the academic year 2009-2010. From the academic year 2012-2013 the intake was further increased to 180 students. The department has always been on a high growth path since its inception. This department has well qualified and experienced faculty in all specializations such as VLSI, Microwave & Optical Engineering, Applied Electronics, Communication Systems, Medical Electronics, Digital Systems and Computer Science. This department has very good infrastructure and instructional facilities.
This department maintains the Faculty to student ratio and Faculty cadre ratio as per the norms and guidelines of AICTE. Senior faculty members guide Ph.D. research scholars enrolled at Anna University, Sathyabama University, St.Peter’s University etc. Our faculty members have received honours and awards for distinguished services in academics and research. Our faculty members and students have filed patents. Few faculty members have published text books. All our faculty members attend FDPs and workshops regularly to enhance their teaching and research skills. Senior faculty members visited several countries including Malaysia, Singapore and USA for presenting their research papers, attending technical meetings / conferences etc.
The department is consistently producing very good academic results in the Anna University semester examinations. Ms.Eunice Daphne. J of 2014-18 batch added laurel to the department by triumphing University Gold Medal with the CGPA of 9.43. Our students actively participate in symposium, conference, workshop, etc. organized by other colleges and universities and win prizes for various events. Our 2014-18 batch students participated in SMART INDIA HACKATHON2018 and received 1st Runner Up of Rs.75000/-. The department is regularly organizing symposia and workshops to update the practical knowledge of students. Few of our students have built prototype Robots for various applications.
Students are taken to organizations such as SatishDhawan Space Centre (SHAR), National Atmospheric Research Laboratory (NARL), Doordarshan Kendra, All India Radio, Ennore Port Trust, Integral Coach Factory etc through industrial visits. From the first year onwards, value added courses and Placement Training activities are given to the students by expert trainers for skill enrichment. Guest lectures are arranged frequently with eminent professors, research scientists and industrial experts to give the students an insight of cutting edge technologies. Besides academics, our students excel in sports and games by winning prizes in the events organized by other universities and colleges.
The Training and Placement cell organizes various training programs with renowned expert trainers from industries and multinational companies to improve the oral, written and aptitude skills of the students which pave the way to get hired by leading core and IT industries. In addition to these trainings, various Centres of Excellence such as Robotics Process Automation CoE, Artificial Intelligence CoE, etc. play a vital role in providing stream specific training to our students. 91% of our first batch students got their placement through campus placement in leading IT industries such as TCS, HCL, Accenture and WIPRO Technologies etc. In 2012-16 batch, 98% students got placed in reputed industries.
The Central and Department libraries have good collection of around 7216 volumes of textbooks and reference books exclusively for ECE department. IEEE journals and a good number of printed national journals are subscribed to promote research culture. All the faculty members are either doctorates or master degree holders. Most of our faculty members are pursuing their Ph.D.in Anna University, Chennai and are members of various professional bodies such as IEEE, ISTE, IET, IEI, etc.
Our faculty members, Dr.C.Arun (Principal Investigator) and Dr.S.Muthumanickam (Co-Investigator), completed a research work titled “Design and Implementation of Dual Blind Detection Robust Watermarking for Multimedia Security in FPGA” sponsored by Space Applications Centre (SAC) – ISRO with an amount of Rs.12.98 lakhs.
