Electronics and Communication Engineering
Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) compiles in Communication Engineering and core Electronics Engineering. It is one of the most sought after engineering branches among Engineering aspirants. Electronics and Communication engineers engage in research, design development and testing of the electronic equipment used in various systems.
This discipline of Engineering deals with the electronic devices, circuits, communication equipments like transmitter, receiver and integrated circuits (IC). On communication part, it deals with basic electronics, analog and digital transmission & reception of data, voice and video, microprocessors, satellite communication, microwave engineering, antennae and wave progression.
About the Course
The course offers both undergraduate and post graduaste degrees. BE/B.Tech in Electronics and Communication Engineering is a four-year undergraduate program. It is an interface of chip level hardware and information technology. One can pursue M.Tech in Electronics Engineering after successful completion of BE/B.Tech.
Electronics and Communication Engineering is divided into three programmes:-
- Diploma 3 years duration
- UG courses of 4 years duration.
- PG courses of 2 years duration.
B.Tech in electronics and Communication engineering is the one of the most popular Engineering Discipline. Admissions are done through entrance test. Students can apply for JEE Main 2018 after finishing 10+2 level exam in order to take admission in undergraduate engineering courses. Students who aspires to take admission in IITs or NITs are required to clear the JEE Advanced 2018 exam.
Students should have qualified Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE 2018) for admission in postgraduate engineering courses. Admissions are also taken on the basis of entrance test conducted by various state level and university exams. Some other popular examinations are: BCECE 2018, JCECE, UPSEE 2018, etc.
For UG: The candidate should have passed 10+2 examination from CBSE or any other equivalent examination board with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics as core subjects. The candidates should also fulfill minimum qualifying marks in aggregate of the subjects.
For PG: The candidate should have a B.Tech degree with a minimum passing percentage in an aggregate of the subjects studied at the degree level.
