Electronics and Communication Engineering
Electronics rules the modern world. It has profound influence and became an integral part of every technology. With a mission to mould the students as the best technocrats and prepare them to face the ever changing challenges in the electronics industry. The Department of ECE commenced in the year 2007 with an intake of 60 and later expanded to accommodate 120 students in the academic year 2009. Later expanded to accommodate 180 students in the academic year 2013. Since 2013, the intake is 180,besides an additional 20% under lateral entry scheme.The department has the faculty members who have vast experience in the field in both industries and academics. Currently there are 37 faculty members. The department is headed by Prof R Prakash Rao,14 years at Teaching level.The Department has an Advisory Committee, which advises planning of academic matters and development of the laboratories and upgrading skills of the faculty.
The department has 100 computers with latest versions of computer software and hardware. All computers are connected through college LAN with 30 Mbps Internet facility for the use of students and faculty all the time. The department has the following full-fledged laboratories:
Electronic Devices and Circuits Lab
Basic Simulation Lab Electrical Technology Lab
Electronic Circuits and Pulse Circuits Lab
Analog Communications Lab
IC Applications and HDL Simulation Lab
Microprocessors and Microcontrollers Lab
Digital Signal Processing Lab
Microwave Engineering and Digital Communications Lab
The department library has 500 titles of text books for UG course and 100 titles of PG courses. The number of project reports available in the library is 100 of UG and 24 of PG.
The department takes an active role in arranging expert lectures, guest lectures and Industrial visits for the benefit of students. Students are encouraged to take up industry oriented projects. The students are also motivated to present papers in student seminars, paper contests etc. at various conferences.
The department organizes students counseling by the members of faculty to monitor regularity and discipline among students. About 15 students are allotted to each teacher to guide, motivate and counsel them on academic and other matters. The teacher counselors regularly interact with the students and maintain registers on the progress of the students.
Class teachers are allotted to check student’s attendance and punctuality. A Disciplinary Committee comprising of the senior faculty is constituted for maintaining discipline and dress code of the students. Some faculty members are allotted roster duties to check the punctuality of both the staff and students.
The department constantly interacts with the alumni and seeks their advice on academic matters. Their suggestions are taken into consideration in various developmental activities of the department.
Among the past Four batches of students who have graduated so far, 200 students have been placed in reputed MNCs like Tata Consultancy Services, Tech Mahindra, Mahindra Satyam, Infosys Technologies Ltd, Robert Bosch, Computer Science Corporation, Convergys, Mphasis, Syntel etc. Some alumni have pursued higher studies in Engineering / Management in reputed Universities in India and abroad.
M. Tech (Embedded Systems)
Embedded Systems (ES) is a two year full time post-graduate program approved by the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) for the students who have a B.E/B.Tech in any branch of engineering. The course is offered by the department of Electronics and Communication Engineering by highly qualified and experienced teaching faculty. Intake to this course is 18, selected by J N T University by common Entrance Test and later expanded to accommodate 36 students in the academic year 2014.Embedded systems design is a productive synergy between hardware and software design. Essentially, it’s the art of choosing and designing the proper combination of hardware and software components to achieve design goals like speed and efficiency. The M.Tech Course in Embedded System Design focuses on practical design aspects. The major objective of the course is to mould fresh electronics engineers into high-calibre embedded system designers. The course offers a range of topics of immediate relevance to the electronics industry. The participants of the programme are exposed to various families and architectures of embedded system tools.The course structure of this program will include the core subjects like Embedded Real Time Operating Systems, Microcontrollers for EmbeddedSystem Design, Hardware Software Co-Design, and CPLD and FPGA Architectures andApplications, and elective subjects Advanced Computer Architecture, VLSI Technology and Design, Multimedia and Signal Coding and System on Chip Architecture.A dedicated project work is taken up by every student of M.Tech (ES) for the next two semesters. The project work is of high quality basing used in current industry practices. Project work is supported by leading MNC’s and defence laboratories doing state of art research and development.
