In the year 1971, the institute started the Electronics and Communication Engineering Course for the benefit of students who are keen on knowing subjects from traditional to modern aspects of Electronics.The department has been continuously striving for excellence in engineering education. The department has always been on a high growth path to keep pace with the ever increasing importance of the major disciplines of study and current technology trends. The programme emphasizes the basics of Electronics, Computers, Communication Engineering and Instrumentation. The full-fledge department started functioning from the year 1987.
The department is well equipped with modern laboratory facilities and good infrastructure.The Department has Eleven major laboratories namely; Analog Electronics Lab, Digital Electronics Lab,Communication Lab, Advanced Communication Lab, Microprocessor / Microcontroller Lab, Very Large Scale Integration Lab, Internet of Things Lab, Digital Signal Processing Lab, Advanced Signal Processing Lab, Programing Lab, Power Electronics Lab supported by latest Matlab R2016a, Tina V10 and Altium Designer Software Tools. Also we have separate Tutorial Room, Research and Development Lab and Project Room.The Department has successfully completed many industry and KSCST sponsored projects. Indeed, a few members of the teaching faculty have been recognized as textbook reviewers and fellows of Institution of Electronics & Telecommunication Engineers. With competent staff and adequate equipment, the Department can take up research / consultancy work on electronics, communication and allied fields.
