Overview: Electronics & Communication Engineering

Electronics and Communication Engineering is one of the fastest growing field of engineering courses. It involves the transmission of information across the channel. Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) compiles in Communication Engineering and core Electronics Engineering. The course concept is to focus mainly on the communication part with the knowledge of the Electronics field. Electronics and Communication Engineering deals with the Electronic devices and software applications. It is an interface of chip level hardware and information technology.

First half of the course, the students go through the basic engineering concept, physics, mathematics and chemistry. In the second half of the course, the students go through the core study of communication such as design, digital electronics, fundamental of Electronics engineering, signal & circuit, electronic circuits, VLSI, power electronics, computer architecture, and control systems.
