Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering

The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering was started in the year 2002. The Department offers Bachelor’s degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering and Master's degree in Applied Electronics with value-based education and research activities for students. The students are not only told to learn the logic but also to use their imagination as it can lead them to discover new things.

Faculty members in the Department are well-experienced in various areas of Electronics and Communication Engineering that include Digital Signal Processing, Wireless Communication, VLSI, Microwave & Optical Engineering, Communication Systems and Embedded systems. The Department is prestigious with latest software like Cadence, Pspice, Xilinx, LabVIEW from National Instruments and MATLAB.

The Department is committed to transforming the individuals into globally competent Engineers with application-oriented learning, research activities, dynamic entrepreneurship skills and human values, fulfilling the needs of society.

The Department is funded with grants from the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE), Department of Science and Technology (DST) and Tamil Nadu State Council for Science and Technology (TNSCST). The Department has also initiated professional societies namely, IEEE (Control system), ISTE and IETE society.

Students from the Department have secured 17 Anna University ranks in the year 2012 and are placed in high profile companies like Hexaware, Wipro, Cognizant, TCS, Stellar Technologies, HCL, MindTree, etc.

  4. 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.
  5. Modern tool usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modelling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
  6. 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.
  7. Environment and sustainability: Understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.
  8. Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.
  9. Individual and team work: Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings.
  10. Communication: Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
  11. Project management and finance: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.
  12. Life-long Learning: Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.


The Students will be able to

  • PSO1: Design, develop and analyze electronic systems through application of relevant electronics, mathematics and engineering principles
  • PSO2: Design, develop and analyze communication systems through application of fundamentals from communication principles, signal processing, and RF System Design & Electromagnetics.
  • PSO3: Adapt to emerging electronics and communication technologies and develop innovative solutions for existing and newer problems

The Electronics and communication student’s Association, “COMMUTRONIX” provides opportunities to share ideas, experience and knowledge. It also provides platform to sharpen the skills of students by organizing Symposiums, Project Expos, guest lectures, seminars, alumni talk and student meets.
