Electronics is now a part of our everyday life, from your pocket FM radio to televisions, computers, mobile phones and even the high-end satellites that are helping us in every path. Studying electronics and communication engineering is the dream of many engineering aspirants due to various reasons - growth, job opportunities, salary range and continuous industry growth.
At Gates, we have an excellent and well established Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE). The Department was started in 2001 with 60 seats in UG program. This intake increased to 90 in 2004, 120 in 2010 and 180 in 2011. The department also started a PG program in VLSI and Embedded System Design in 2012 with an intake of 18.
The department has a team of well-qualified, experienced and committed faculty with industrial and research background. They carefully nurture the young engineers and lay down a strong foundation in both technological and analytical aspects. The department has well established Electronics laboratories with state of art facilities. The department uses audio visual teaching aids such as, models, charts and LCD projectors for effective teaching. Students of our department are encouraged to actively participate in technical events and national level paper presentations and few of them got awarded in those events.
The department has IETE Association through which students are allowed to enrich their technical knowledge by organizing and attending national level workshops, seminars and working model exhibitions. The activities under the flagship of various associations have given an ample scope for both student and teaching community to get acquainted with latest developments in areas like Digital Image Processing, Embedded Systems, Mobile & Satellite Communications and much more.
The Department is headed by Mr. K.C. Kullayappa M.Tech, (Ph.D.) who has 14 years of teaching experience. The department has well qualified, dedicated and experienced faculty and committed supporting staff.
