About the Department

The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering was established in the year 2000 with an initial sanctioned strength of 60 and it was increased to 120 in the year 2002. Our Mission is to provide quality education to the students and impart Communication excellence in them. Apart from making them good technocrats, we also provide individual attention to make them good citizens of our nation to serve the industry and society constructively.

The Department offers a PG course M.E. degree in VLSI Design which was introduced in the year 2008. The Department has been accredited by NBA for 3 Years and is permanent affiliated by Anna University. The Department has received a grant from the DST, Government of India, under FIST scheme. The Centre for Research, Anna University has approved the Department as Research Centre. We have received grants from DST-SERB to enhance the Research and Development. The Department was also awarded by AICTE – CII for best industry linked institute.

 We have a team of committed faculty members who are not only well qualified but are also backed by rich industrial / research / teaching experiences. The department has a fully equipped state of art laboratories that functions with seven curriculum laboratories which includes Engineering Practices Lab / Electron Devices Lab, Electronic Circuits / Communication System Lab, Microprocessor & Microcontroller Lab, Microwave and Optical Lab, Network and Signal Processing Lab / DSP Lab, Advanced VLSI Design Lab, Digital and Integrated Circuits Lab and also we have Industry initiated laboratory and Research Laboratories. We have modernized our lab named Advanced VLSI Design Laboratory, sponsored by AICTE under the scheme of MODROBS.


  • To emerge as a centre of academic eminence in electronics and communication and related spheres through knowledge acquisition and propagation meeting global needs and standards.


  • To impart quality education by inculcating fundamental knowledge in Electronics and Communication Engineering with due focus on research and industry practices.
  • To propagate lifelong learning.
  • To impart the right proportion of knowledge, attitudes and ethics in students to enable them take up positions of responsibility in the society and make significant contributions.
