Professor and Head
The department of Electronics and Communication was established in the year 1967 for imparting state-of-the-art education and training in the field of Electronics and Communication Engineering. With an initial intake of 30 students the department has grown steadily and the present intake is 120 students for the UG programme. The department also offers a PG programme in Signal Processing with an intake of 18.
The faculty strength of the department is 33, including 3 Professors, 9 Associate Professors, 21 Assistant Professors. Five of the faculty have completed their PhDs in IITs and reputed universities in the area of Speech Processing, Image processing, Communication. Nine faculty are pursuing their PhDs at IISc, IITs and other reputed institutions. In addition three more faculty from the department are selected under QIP .
The faculty always strives for imparting better knowledge to the students and works as a team in all departmental activities.
Students graduated from the department are well placed in India and abroad. Quite a few of them have pursued higher studies both in India and abroad. Some of them have qualified for Indian Engineering and Defense Services. Students of the department have bagged university ranks including the First rank on several occasions.
