In order to meet the wide ranging, challenging and very rapidly growing global Demands for Professional “Electronics and Communication Engineers” in this Hi-Tech Era, the Department of “Electronics and Communication Engineering” was established since inception of the college in the year 1996.

The Objective of the Institution is to impart “Quality Engineering Education” and promote the growth of effective, efficient and true Professionals, through adherence of the highest standards of Academic Integrity and overall ethical conduct, to develop a sense of individual responsibility and also to collectively participate in reinforcing and maintaining an Environment of Honor, Trust and Standards. The First year Core Curriculum begins with a common knowledge base and customizes students by grounding in Basic Engineering Foundation and in Critical Hands-on Skills in Engineering Practices. The Course has access to enhance the learning, student Perspective and experience to develop specialization in areas of ‘Electronics and Communication Engineering’. Class room learning is complemented by practical in Hi-Tech labs, projects and hands on experiences, so as to foster knowledge in ‘Engineering and Technology’.

The Department strives to develop long term relationships with industries and market the student’s talents effectively. The students are thus provided high level ‘Leads and Pathways’ that enable them to gain access to a broad range of ‘high potential’ and ‘Hi-Tech’ career Opportunities.

In a very short span of time since the Department was launched in our College, it has made a name for itself, among the top few Colleges, at the University level, through Seminars, Symposia, Workshops, Publications ,Faculty Development Program’s ,Conferences and also through its performance in the Examinations and Placement. The Curriculum adopted is of ‘Semester System’ and is spread over a period of four years; the Programme is affiliated to Anna University. In pursuit of excellence, the department has been sanctioned with 3 PG courses namely ME. VLSI Design, M.E. Communication Systems, M.E. Embedded System Technologies. M.E.VLSI Design has been initiated during the year 2004, M.E. Communication Systems has been initiated during the year 2008 and M.E. Embedded System Technologies has been initiated during the year 2010 each with an intake of 18 students.
