B.E.(Hons.) Electronics and Communication
It develops everyday devices such as transistors, integrated circuits and printed circuit boards (PCBs) which can be used in computers, MP3 players, cell phones, television.
Telecommunication, a part of this course, involves the transmission of information across channels such as a coax cable, optical fibre or free space. You can work on designing equipment such as routers, switches, multiplexers and electronic switching systems, copper telephone facilities and fibre optics. Apart from a few subjects majority of the syllabi is common.
Core subjects of the course include Electromagnetics, Electronics, Electrical circuits and machines, Signals and systems, Digital Signal Processing, Microprocessors and Embedded systems, Communication systems, Optical systems and VLSI.
After completing a BTech/BE students can opt for MTech/MS in various subjects such as Fibre Optics and Lightwaves, Microelectronics & V L S I Design, RF and Microwaves, Telecommunication Systems, Visual Information and Embedded Systems.
Some electives that students can opt for include: Advanced Power Systems, Computer Based Control System, Modern Control System, Fuzzy Logic and its Applications, Electronic Measurements and Instrumentation, Analog and Digital VLSI Design, Mobile Telecommunication and Switching Networks, Digital Signal Processing, Image Processing, Medical Instrumentation and Real Time Systems.
You can work in the consumer electronics, aviation and avionics, manufacturing, electricity generation and distribution, communications, transportation, telecommunications, radio and television, computer applications, hospital diagnostic equipment and offshore industries.
