Electronics and Communication Engineering

Vision

1
THE VISION OF THE ELECTRONICS AND COMMUNICATION ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT AT KIT, ONE OF THE TOP ECE ENGINEERING COLLEGES IN TAMILNADU, IS TO CULTIVATE EXCELLENCE IN BOTH ACADEMICS AND RESEARCH IN PRODUCING PROFICIENT ENGINEERS TO FURNISH THE GLOBAL NEEDS.

The Department of ECE which was started in the year 2008 offers a UG programme (B.E.) in Electronics and Communication Engineering. The ECE Department has a team of highly talented, experienced and qualified faculty members. There has been a consistent development in all spheres including infrastructure, staff and the strength of the students.

The ECE Department believes in serious academic pursuit and encourages radical and creative thinking which paves the way for creativity and innovative ideas. The qualities inculcated into the engineering students make them not only good engineers but also good human beings. The excellent placement record of the ECE department, which has been consistently above 80 % for the past several years, is an ample testimony to emphasize that the ECE department and the college strives hard in providing practical engineering skills to meet the industrial needs through excellence in engineering education.

Mission

1
  • To impart high quality education with ethical behavior.
  • To provide technical research and intellectual resources that will enable the students to have a successful career in the field of Electronics & Communication Engineering.
  • To provide a passionate environment for continuous and progressive learning.
  • To nurture the ability and to nourish the social responsibility among students.
  • To build the leading edge in technologies and systems required to achieve excellence in academics.
  • To establish the Centre of Excellence in emerging research areas in accordance with leading industries.
  • To promote the inherent talents in every individual student with utmost concern.

Engineers make the world a better place; they take a fuzzy idea and turn it into something real.

Electronic and communications engineering is the utilization of science and math applied to practical problems in the field of communications. Can we imagine our daily life without mobile phone, laptop (computer), television, tablets, digital watch, internet banking, ATM cards, Wi-Fi, internet connection, microwave Oven and many more gadgets and communication systems. No, we cannot. All these are possible due to Electronics & Communication Engineering (ECE).

Robots will also be part of our lives very soon and embedded electronics which is a sub branch of electronics play an important role in this. All of this makes ECE an interesting field to study and work.

With the evolution of technology, Electronics and Communication has become an essential discipline that is required by every other industry.
