The Electronics and Communication Engineering course was initiated in 1983. In the early years the aim was in the development of a good infrastructural facility for teaching the B. E. course. After the formation of the new department in 1990 the development took a new turn. In the initial years there was space and fund
shortage. After shifting of the department to the present location the space problem reduced. Funds granted for development of the
infrastructural facilities were inadequate. Moreover in Electronics and Communication Engineering the technology is progressing in
such a brisk pace that to keep abreast new equipments need to be procured every three to five years. Regular inflow of funds were
necessary to keep the labs equipped with, state of art technology, instruments.
The main obstacle in the steady growth of the department throughout its existence for the last seventeen years ?
is shortage of faculty.
This has hindered the growth of the department.
Under all these constraints the department has developed facilities, which is imparting good training to the undergraduate students.
The PC lab of the department has been upgraded with Pentium III Computers and PCB- fabrication lab has been developed.
For the development of DSP Lab an amount of Rs. 5.00 lakhs has been sanctioned. Utilizing this fund Four TMS320C5416 DSK kit,
four TMS320C6711 DSK kit with code composer studio and four Pentium-IV based desktop PC has been procured for DSP lab. This
would enable the students to get a
practical understanding about digital signal processing. Faculty members, who desire to do research
and development work in the specific fields can pursue with their endeavour.
