1st year BE classes will begin on 07/08/2017 @ 8:00 a.m.

The orientation for 1st year students and parents will be notified subsequently.

B.E. | Electronics & Communication Engineering

Course Overview

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.

Course Structure

1st Year Common Curriculum
In the first year of this UG Engineering Course, all students are divided into two groups. One group goes through the Physics Cycle and the remaining go through the Chemistry Cycle. The subjects taught in both cycles are the same, but the order is different.

*Year 1 course structure shown on the right is for the Physics Cycle. For Chemistry Cycle, the subjects taught are the same, but the subjects for each semester are swapped. Please click here for 1st Year Syllabus.
