The field of Electronics and Communications Engineering has its foundations in three major technical areas: Mathematics: Information, Networks and Systems, Physics: Circuits, Semiconductor Devices & Optical Systems, and Computers: Microprocessors and Computing devices.
As part of the engineering curriculum, you will study Engineering Mathematics, Elements of Mechanical Engineering, CAED, Professional Ethics, and programming concepts during the First Year foundational courses. In the 2nd, 3rd and 4th years, the focus will be on core specialized subjects such as Electronic circuits, both Analog & Digital, Signal processing, Communications, VLSI and Embedded systems, etc. followed by project work and technical seminars.
Electronics and Communications engineers are very much in demand throughout industry. Companies such as Tata Elxsi, Cadence, L&T InfoTech, Bosch, TCS, Infosys, Texas Instruments, Intel, Synopsys, Mentor Graphics, EDA, ABB, Honeywell, Global Electronics, Wipro VLSI, Broadcom, QUALCOMM, LSI, IBM, Hewlett Packard, ISRO and DRDO Labs hire Electronics and Communications engineers. Some students choose to work for software companies such as Microsoft, Infosys, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), Samsung, Nokia Siemens, SAP, and IGATE etc. There are many other students as well who take up higher studies in the field, and prefer to focus their careers on research and/or teaching rather than in industry.
