B.Tech in Electronics and Communication Engineering
* NBA ACCREDITED PROGRAMME
The B. Tech Programme aims at providing a strong foundation in theoretical, practical and design aspects of Electronics and Communication Engineering (EC). The curriculum covers all areas of electronics and communication engineering under the broad categories of electronic circuits, electronic devices, signal processing and communication. The syllabus comprises of theory and laboratory courses under these categories. The theory course can be either a core or an elective course. Theory courses have a laboratory component, which provides a balanced mix of quality teaching of theoretical concepts and experimental verification of the learnt concepts.
The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering started the Bachelor of Technology programme in the year 2001. The programme started with an initial intake of 60 students. The intake was increased to 120 in 2006 and to 180 in 2015.
Program Outcomes (POs)
Engineering graduates will be able to
Engineering knowledge: Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, Engineering fundamentals, and Electronics and Communication Engineering to the solution of complex Engineering problems.
Problem analysis: Identify, formulate, review research literature, and analyze complex Engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and Engineering sciences.
Design/development of solutions: Design solutions for complex Engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
Conduct investigations of complex problems: Use research based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.
Modern tool usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modeling to complex Engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
The Engineer and society: Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional Engineering practice.
