The Department was established during the inception of this institute in 1979. The Department has obtained NBA accreditation thrice. First in 2004 for a period of 3 years, second for a period of 3 years in 2008 and third accreditation for a period of 2 years in 2015. The Department is permanently affiliated to VTU, Belgaum. Since the last 2 years the department is functioning as a autonomous body. The department has all the teaching faculty having qualifications M. Tech/M. S or above. The department has a MoU with Texas Instruments, ALS and ARM. Innovative and Industry oriented projects are carried out on TI DSP kits.
The Electronics and Communication Engineering department shall impart quality technical education and entrepreneurship skills to develop creative individuals to face changing global scenario.
To augment the national talent pool, with Electronics and Communication Engineers having all-encompassing technical knowledge, principled practices and nationalistic outlook.
Program Educational Objectives 1. The graduates will acquire core competence in Basic Sciences and Electronics & Communication Engineering fundamentals necessary to formulate, analyze, and solve engineering problems and to pursue advanced study or research. 2. The graduates will engage in the activities that demonstrate desire for ongoing personal and professional growth, and self confidence to adapt to ongoing technological developments. 3. The graduates will maintain high professionalism and ethical standards, effective oral and written communication skills, work as part of teams on multidisciplinary projects under diverse professional environments, and relate engineering issues to the society, global economy and to emerging technologies. Program Specific Outcomes 1. Understanding and applying the mathematical and scientific concepts, for analysis and design of basic Electronics and Communication systems. 2. Developing critical thinking abilities coupled with competence in use of computational tools for professional growth; complimented with communication skills and leadership attributes. 3. Identifying societal needs and sensitizing individuals towards finding innovative solutions to contemporary issues with multidisciplinary outlook. Best Practices and Teaching learning process:
- Interactive Lectures provide strategies and specific examples of techniques and activities designed to involve students in large and small lecture-based classes.
- PPT and Videos provide a platform for incorporating a variety of multi-media file-types: images, audio, and animations which make the teaching-learning more effective.
- E-learning – where the students can obtain information through websites such as http://nptel.iitm.ac.in and national and international journals. This enhances the subject knowledge and helps in knowing the development in technology.
- Effectiveness of these methods is reflected in the form of academic results, Placements, Admission to higher studies in India and abroad, Quality of projects done, Participation of the students in technical paper presentation.
- Indirect assessment of content delivery methods by gathering feedback from the students helps to determine the effectiveness of teaching methods
