(Formerly MANAV RACHNA INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY )
About Department of Electronics & Communication Engineering
Electronics and Communication Engineering has long played a critical role in supporting innovations that improve the quality of life, support economic growth, and address societal problems. The essential technologies that connect society: mobile phones, laptops, wireless communications, electronic displays, “smart” power grids, smart cities, smart buildings and rapidly evolving systems for monetary transactions are all evidence of the impact of innovation in this field of engineering.
The Department was set up in 1997 and its B.Tech-ECE programme was accredited by NBA in 2004, 2007 and 2018. The research interests of the faculty members of the department encompass the wide area of applied and fundamental aspects of Electronics and Communication Engineering including but not limited to Communication Systems, Microelectronics & VLSI, IOT, Digital Signal Processing, Wireless and Mobile communication, Antenna Design and RF & Microwave Engineering. Twenty Ph.D scholars are currently engaged in cutting edge research in the Department and eight have been awarded Ph.D degree. Faculty members and students are actively involved in research and have published their work in journals of National/International repute.
Faculty members in the department have filed patents in the following fields:
- Energy harvesting fractal antenna
- Self-tracking shopping system for supermarkets
- A mobile home based biogas digester
The Department has state-of-the-art, well equipped laboratories with adequate facilities catering to the requirements of undergraduates, postgraduates and research scholars particularly in the area of High End Electronic Design, Microcontrollers, Microprocessors,
Embedded System Design, VLSI Design, Antenna Design, Microwave, Advanced Communication Systems, Simulation and Digital Signal Processing. In addition to the well-equipped curriculum related laboratories, the Department has strong association with the Research Clusters and various Centers of Excellence in the University.
The Department strives to impart latest knowledge and skills so as to kindle innovation & creativity among students, to establish a culture of research while promoting values, ethics and professionalism, leading to a progressive career in industry & academia globally. The Department has state of the art education aids, visual laboratories and competent faculty ensuring effective teaching learning process to meet the ever growing and changing industrial and business environment. The whole learning process is designed in a way so as to continuously challenge the young minds with ideas, to carry out innovative research through interaction with the research organizations & industry and to provide them avenues for recognition by participation in challenging platforms.
The Department continuously upgrades the curriculum and teaching inputs taking cognizance of its prime stake holders viz. research organizations, industry, peer community, alumni, parents and students. To give greater emphasis on education methodology, guest lectures, seminars, workshops, personality development programs, educational tours, industrial visits and quizzes are organized. The department has linkages with industry, leading academic institutes and scientific research organizations like the DST, MoSPI, DRDO, IIT, ISI, SAP, RIL etc. The department has offered consultancy to various industries.The student chapter of Institution of Engineers India (IEI) and ISTE is fully functional in the department.
The Department also has the following Knowledge Partners:
