B.Tech (Electronics and Communication Engineering)

About the Course

Electronics & Communication Engineering is a broad engineering field that covers important subfields such as Analog Electronics, Digital electronics, consumer electronics, embedded systems and power electronics. Electronics engineering deals with implementation of applications, principles and algorithms developed within many related fields, for example solid-state physics, radio engineering, telecommunications, control systems, signal processing, systems engineering, computer engineering, instrumentation engineering, electric power control, robotics, and many others.

ECE deptt. has a computerized and fully automated library with the following features :

  • Both Technical and General Books available
  • Journals Available (Printed Version)
  • On line subscription for international journals
  • Educational CDs/VCDs
  • Lab Manuals, Project Reports & Training Reports

Career Prospects

Electronics & Communication is the technology associated with electronic circuits and systems, and is one of the major branches of electrical engineering Electronics engineers research, design, develop and test precision components and systems; developing the way electricity is used to control equipment. The work is usually carried out in cross-functional project teams, with colleagues in electronics and other branches of engineering. Electronics touches on almost all areas of human activity, so its applications are diverse. They include acoustics, defense, medical instruments, mobile phones, nanotechnology, radio and satellite communication and robotics. Subfields of electronics engineering include control engineering, instrumentation, signal processing and telecommunications engineering.
