Greetings from the desk of HOD, Electronics & Communication Engineering (ECE), RSET!

Intertwined with the success story of RSET is that of its ECE Department. Both, established in 2001, have grown from strength to strength in their journey thus far. From humble beginnings with a batch of 60 BTech students, today the ECE department has a yearly student intake of more than 180 B.Tech. students in three batches. In 2009, the department started Postgraduate programme in VLSI & Embedded Systems and in 2012, one in Communication Engineering with an annual intake of 18 and 12 students respectively. The department currently offers the KTU research programme too, thereby fetching it the status of Centre of Research.

Over the years, the department has achieved awards and accolades in both academic and extra curricular activities. Under the umbrella of the NAAC-accredited institution, the department runs an NBA-accredited BTech programme for the past many years. Well-qualified, experienced and dedicated faculty as well as state-of-the-art laboratories and infrastructure have been instrumental in growth of such magnitude. The department has persistently laid equal focus on academics and research and the efforts have borne fruit in terms of university ranks, patents, faculty and student publications to name a few.
