Electronics & Communication Engineering

Electronics & Communication Engineering

Bachelor in Technology

The Institute offers a four-year full-time B.Tech. program in Electronics and Communication Engineering, awarded by Himachal Pradesh Technical University (HPTU). This field involves the transmission of information across channels such as a coaxial cable, optical fiber or free space. ECE Engineer can work on designing equipment such as routers, switches, multiplexers and electronic switching systems, copper telephone facilities and fiber optics. It develops everyday devices such as transistors, integrated circuits and printed circuit boards (PCBs) which can be used in computers, MP3 players, cell phones, television to name a few. The discipline deals with electronic devices and software interfaces. The applications are far reaching, right from the indoors of the house to industries. The tasks of the Electronics and Communication engineers are to direct, control and test produce processes a well as to ensure safety, installation, and functioning of the various mechanisms. The discipline integrates knowledge based on digital electronics and logic design, fundamentals of communication engineering, electronic circuits, signals and systems, power electronics, applied electromagnetic theory, integrated circuits, VLSI, control systems and computer architecture.

Program Objectives :

  • B.TECH. (ECE) graduates :
  • Would have solid foundation and relevant skills in electronics and communication engineering, so as to apply acquired knowledge in mathematics and science to generate solutions to engineering problems.
  • Would be able to take up research in relevant areas of their interest.
  • Would acquire professional and communication skills to grab employment opportunities relevant to their background, area of interests and education, and will continuously advance in their careers.
  • Would inculcate the habit of regular learning throughout their lifespan, so as to continue to excel in their chosen fields of specializations.
  • Who get employed within core engineering fields should hold competence, such as identifying, formulating, analyzing and creating engineering solutions, using most updated engineering techniques, skills, and tools.
  • Will be proficient enough that they should be able to make their own ways to become entrepreneurs and become leaders to contribute in the economy of the country and the globe.
  • Will have the skills to function as ethically responsible professionals.
