The Electronics and Communication Department is one of the oldest engineering departments of Institute of Engineering and Management. Accredited by the NBA and approved by AICTE it was established in the year 1996 under the affiliation of Kalyani University and subsequently under MaulanaAbulKalam Azad University of Technology (erstwhile West Bengal University of Technology). Right from its inception, it aimed towards imparting quality education with special emphasis on technical knowledge. The department started its postgraduate course in VLSI and Microelectronics since the year 2006. Every year close to 180 students in B-Tech and 18 students in M-Tech get admitted to this department. With access to the research in cutting-edge technology, students from this department have maintained a consistent balance between academic excellence and extracurricular activities which is reflected in their achievements in the technical fests, science exhibitions, cultural fests, etc. Students are encouraged to take part in technical trainings, workshops, visits to companies like BSNL, VECC of Bhaba Atomic Research Centre, ISI Kolkata, etc. It has been a tradition of this department to encourage the students to explore beyond the boundaries of a prescribed academic syllabus in order to hone their skills and enrich their knowledge. Our faculties emphasize state-of-the-art scientific and engineering methods pertinent to computer science and software engineering in order to lead students to a point of understanding where they remain inquisitive, serious, ethical, and creative problem solvers. The department provides wireless internet service round the clock to help students keep up with the ever-changing world of engineering.
Here students are trained with good practical exposure by using modern equipped laboratories. Experiments are conducted and recorded, to analyze and interpret data in scientific and engineering aspects that cover multi-disciplinary subjects enabling them to comprehend, analyze ECE problems and develop solutions.
Our department has a very efficient placement cell which has provided jobs to all of its students in companies across multiple domains; Ericsson, Infosys, Sankalp Semiconductors to name a few. Students seeking higher education go to top research facilities and universities in India and abroad (US/Europe) to pursue their Doctorate/ Masters. We have a well-balanced group of faculty members from all age groups that include industrial and academic experts who have published more than 400 research papers in international journals. We also enjoy strong support of an alumni network of over 2000 professionals who have established themselves in their respective fields.
