To impart futuristic technical education in Electronics and Communication Engineering and in still high patterns of discipline by generating knowledge to meet the global standards, making students technologically superior and ethically strong, who in turn shall improve the quality of life leading to overall professional success.
The Department of Electronics & Communications Engineering was started in the year 2001 with an intake of 60 students. The intake was increased to 120 in 2006. A Separate
block is provided to develop the department as a center of excellence. The department has established five laboratories namely Communications laboratory, IC applications laboratory, Processors laboratory, Simulations laboratory and Electronic Devices & circuits laboratory, which are fully equipped with test and measuring equipment and trainer kits specially designed for lab work and a separate library for the students of the department.
Post graduate course in VLSI System Design was sanctioned during the academic year 2008-09 with an intake of 18 seats. Diploma course was sanctioned in the academic year 2009-10 with an intake of 60 seats.
The department is headed by Dr.B.Subrahmaneswara Rao. The department has dedicated and experienced faculty. Well-furnished staff rooms are provided in sufficient number.
The department is mainly providing in-house guidance for projects for graduate and post graduate students. The department is contributing towards research by encouraging students to work in the field of Nanotechnology. During the last academic year, 40 students presented various paper and poster presentations in various colleges.
Our department organized an international conference ICMOT-2010 in collaboration with IACQER. 150 students registered as IACQER members. In this conference, few of the faculty members and students participated in paper and poster presentations. The department is very proud to have students who contributed the "Best paper" in ICMOT-2010.
Most of the faculty members are life members of IETE. Student forum of IETE (SFI) was formed and is active since four years. The department students have formed an association (AECE) and it conducts various technical and cultural activities during the entire academic year and the winners are awarded on AECE day as a part of AECE celebration.
The department has initiated Student Academic Development Program (SADP) to improve the academic performance of weak students. With the help of mentors chosen from the meritorious students, the faculty concentrates on improving the academic performance of weak students.
The Alumni of all the past four years are well-placed in reputed organizations like IBM, INFOSYS, TCS, CSC, SATYAM, TECH-MAHINDRA, WIPRO, etc. Some of them are pursuing M.Tech, MBA and MS courses in India and abroad. Some of the present final year students are engrossed in research in the field of Nanotechnology.
The ECE department has separate block with five laboratories with state-of-art equipment. The total amount spent to establish all the laboratories is about 70 Lakhs. The total area of the department is 2000 sq.mtrs. The department has six classrooms equipped with 3 LCD projectors, few DVD writers, 1 scanner, 3 printers, 80 computers with LAN connection. The entire department is having net connectivity through Wi-Fi. As a step towards advanced teaching methodology, the department is equipped with 6 laptops. The classrooms are well ventilated and furnished with black board, white screen, etc.
During the last 9 years, the department has developed the complete infrastructure required for conducting regular theory classes and laboratories for practical work. The department has spent a substantial amount for procuring useful software packages such as Mentor graphics backend tool for VLSI design, XILINX-tool for Verilog and VHDL programming with CPLD and FPGA evaluation hardware, MATLAB, DSK kits, P-SPICE and KIEL software etc. Communication laboratory is well-equipped with six microwave benches, optical communication trainer kits, Digital & Analog communication trainer kits, Digital storage oscilloscope, Spectrum Analyzer (1GHz) etc.
The ECE department conducted various workshops in different technical fields like VLSI, Embedded Systems, DSP, Nanotechnology, etc. The department focuses on staff development by organizing lab orientation courses during inter semester breaks and also by sending the faculty to various workshops conducted by other colleges.
The college follows the regulations and syllabi of Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University Kakinada.
