The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering has seen considerable growth since its inception in 1976. The vision of the department is to focus on the incubation of innovations in the areas of electronic design/ fabrication, and communication technologies, which are needed to address the growing challenges of tomorrow. The overall aim is to harbour a sustainable, and continuously evolving scientific, technological and educational environment which is both internationally-adapted and industry-relevant.
This department offers UG/ PG and Ph. D. programmes. Currently, the department has an annual intake of 190 students in the B.Tech programme in Electronics and Communication Engineering. The department is also offering B.Tech (Evening) with an intake of 45 students. Project and Industrial Training is an integral part of the curriculum and are carried out in frontal areas of technology. Currently the Department has 11 well equipped curriculum laboratories and 4 research laboratories. There are separate departmental project laboratories. New equipment and experimentation work leading to perfect understanding of curriculum in electronics and communication engineering lays greater emphasis on deep understanding of fundamental principles and state of art knowledge. The PG programs include M. Tech. in VLSI Design and Embedded Systems; Signal Processing and Digital Design; and Microwave and Optical Communication and. The Department has focused attention on quality research. Scholarships are available for Ph. D. programs in the area of Electronics and Communication namely VLSI, DSP, Image Processing, Micro strip antenna design, Sensor Networks, Analog and digital system design.
Faculty members of the department have been regularly contributing towards International and National Journals of repute from publishers like IEEE Transactions, IET, Weily, Springer and Elsevier, etc. along with Proceedings of National and International Conferences. The department is also active involved in professional activities undertaken by IEEE Delhi chapters. Several popular technical books and chapters have been authored by the faculty members of the department. Some faculty members have applied for patent for their research findings.
The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering at Delhi Technological University has developed into one of the best departments of the University. The placement trend has shown that the students of the department have been successful in getting lucrative jobs based on their interests in different fields. Top global recruiters such as Texas Instruments, Synopsis, Sandisk, Qualcomm, ARM, Freescale, ST Microelectronics, TCS digital india, Samsung, Wipro, Mentor Graphics, Airtel, BEL, CDOT, TRAI, TCIL and Wynk have offered placements to the students of this department with a package of over Rs. 16 Lakhs per annum. Other recruiters from allied sectors have recruited students from this department with attractive packages. This consistent placement record illustrates the commitment and contribution of this department to the success story of the University. The graduates of the department are occupying important positions in both government as well as corporate sector with many of them having joined programs of higher studies in India and abroad.
The Department regularly organizes seminars, workshops and training programs to keep pace with the new developments and recent trends in relevant technologies. Recently the department has organized invited lecture series in VLSI and Microwave engineering to augment industrial inputs. The department has hosted the MHRD sponsored GIAN course in the University which was delivered by Prof. Mohammad Sawan, Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Engineering, Fellow of the Engineering Institutes of Canada, Fellow of the IEEE Fellow IEEE and Professor of Microelectronics and Biomedical Engineering, Polytechnique Montréal, Canada. Apart from these activities the students are encouraged to organize and participate in various technical and social activities under the aegis of IEEE student branch and Robotics society. Technical fests are organized under the IEEE student branch (TROIKA) and Robotics society respectively. They are also encouraged to participate in various group learning and discussion activities in addition to presentation of seminar and term paper presentations on individual basis.
