Our vision is to become the best Teaching and Research department of the region in the field of Electronics and Communication Engineering.
Our mission is to establish the department as the Centre of Excellence in its domain by seeking strong association with Industry and International Research laboratories.
The department is contributing to the ever changing industrial requirements, economic growth and global societal needs by enhancing the technical skills and entrepreneurship abilities.
In Co-curricular and Extra Curricular activities, the department also has its own student associations and clubs like Sports Club, Technical Club, Cultural Club, Professional Societies and many more which conduct several technical Events, competitions, seminars, quizzes etc. over a year.
The department is associated with other professional technical associations and societies namely IETE and IEEE to give the students, additional means to improve and update their technical knowledge. The department aims at 100% employability and campus placement for all eligible candidates. As per the past placement record, the department candidates had a good contribution/share in each year of campus placement drive.
