Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering
Electronics & Communication engineering today is a multidisciplinary field that blends ingredients from electrical engineering, computer science engineering, information technology, and others. The Communication field now serves broader industries where the telephony, cellular, computer, data warehouse and entertainment industries have converged. It affects society in many aspects, including health, business, defense, security, space, banking, and social life.
Thus, as never before, a situation has arisen where a strong scientific manpower with technical background is needed to meet the growing challenges in the field of electronics for its research, development and applications. To achieve this, our energies are directed towards blending a sound understanding of fundamental science, engineering and technological aspects of electronics. The under graduate course of Electronics & Communication was started in 1997. The department has always been on a high growth path which reflected through M.Tech. in Embedded system & VLSI design in 2007. The department was accredited by National Board of Accreditation in 2009. The department has received grants from govt. agencies for up-gradation and modernization of laboratories.

Students are placed in good renowned group of India and abroad i.e. BSNL, ISRO, NTPC, BHEL, Idea, Airtel, Infosys, Wipro, Accenture, Cogzinent, etc. The alumni of the department have secured their places in the higher echelons of the society and technical world. A good number of students are going for higher studies for their M.Tech, MS, MBA and PhD. from different reputed institutes in India and abroad.
This branch has tremendous applications such as Telephony, Telegraphy, Radio & TV broadcasting, Mobile Communication (2G/3G/4G), Video Conferencing, Internet, e-mail, e-commerce, Industrial Automation, Military etc. As such there is no limit to its applications and scope as well. Every day you will find a new addition in the application of this field.
It is a versatile branch, in the sense that the students holding the degree in the Electronics and Communication can build up their carrier in any field such as Computer Engineering, Information Technology and Communication etc. Our objective is to build up students who will be equally competent in all these fields. Keeping this in mind, we are working to develop well-equipped advanced computer based laboratories, to give the students full exposure to computer, Internet Technology, and the advancements in this field.
The department has a variety of laborites according to the requirement of industry. Department has also a designing, developing and analyzing tool’s and software i.e. Multisim, Mentor Graphics, PCB Designing, Netsim, Matlab, Labview, Comsim etc.
The department encompasses a fine blend of renowned as well as young and dynamic faculties with a balanced mix from industry and academics. Most of the faculties have excellent track records and is drawn from leading institutes like IITs/NITs and other reputed universities. The faculty takes active interest in research and development activities. The infrastructure and lab facilities are upgraded from time to time and provide a good practical learning and innovative environment for UG students and PG researchers.
The Electronics and Communication Branch, is enriched with well - developed laboratories, having variety of equipment useful for novice to understand concepts to high end equipment for different applications. The equipment and software tools are as per the industry requirements and standards. The department has following lab facilities in different areas and is listed as below:
There are exclusive labs for carrying out research and development. These labs have important software like Tinapro, MATLAB, EDA software, Multisim, PCB wizard and Xilinx. For design of Integrated circuits, a new backend tool HEP1 from Mentor Graphics is available. One can design own IC and directly give it to foundry for manufacturing. Department has an exclusive Printed Circuit Board (PCB) Laboratory. This Lab manufacturer various types industries standard Printed Circuit Boards. These PCB’s are used in student’s projects and outsourced projects.
Scope and Placements
Graduates & Post graduates in Electronics & Communication Engineering have opportunities in govt. & private companies for installation, operation and maintenance of electronic equipments and systems. Defense, space and other large research organizations employ electronics engineers in design and development of complex devices and systems for signal processing and telecommunication. Industries involved in design and fabrication of devices, integrated circuits, embedded systems, electronic equipments etc. also provide large scale placements for engineers with this specialization.
Students of Electronics and Communication have participated in CANSAT Competition organized by the American Astronautically Society (AAS), American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics(AIAA), and NASA an annual open world level competition. Mission was to simulate a sensor payload travelling through planetary atmosphere sampling of atmospheric composition during flight. The team of ITM-GOI named INDYAAN has participated in this competition project.
Knowledge of computer hardware, networking equipments and communication systems enables electronics engineering graduate to annex an edge in the IT job market. The skills and understanding developed in the course enable them to be preferred, as software professionals in IT companies. The students of ITM have been placed in companies like Capgemini, L&T, Bosch, Siemens, TCS, Infosys, Hexaware, Accenture, Wipro, Cognizant, Amdocs, IGate, Sadex, Bitwise, Government Agencies like Defence, Navy, DRDO, ISRO, Prasar Bhartis. Public Sector Companies like BHEL, NTPC, BEL, BSNL
