I am pleased to welcome you to the Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering at Indian Institute of Information Technology, Design and Manufacturing, Kancheepuram, Chennai. These are exciting times for Electronics and Communication engineers as the discipline is now widely recognized as a vital source of tools and techniques for advancements in almost all spheres of human endeavor.
Our institute's journey started in 2007 with a goal to equip the country with skilled engineers in the field of Design and Manufacturing. The ECE department started its journey with 20 students in undergraduate program in the year 2008. Now, our strength is 443 out of which we have 15 faculty members, 3 technical staffs and 427 students. We have an Undergraduate Program B. Tech. in Electronics and Communication Engineering with specialization in design and manufacturing, two Dual Degree Programs B. Tech. in Electronics and Communication Engineering and M. Tech. in Electronics and Communication Engineering with specialization in VLSI Design and B. Tech. in Electronics and Communication Engineering and M. Tech. in Electronics and Communication Engineering with specialization in Signal Processing. We also have Ph.D. programs along with two P.G. programs which are M. Tech. in Electronics and Communication Engineering with Specialization in Communication Systems Design and M. Tech. in Electronics and Communication Engineering with Specialization in Electronic Systems Design.
Department of ECE offers IT enabled design and manufacturing-based curriculum that helps the students to promote their problem solving skills and innovate new technologies. Department offers interdisciplinary courses and projects for providing cross cutting knowledge to the students to pursue their interest. The curriculum is periodically revised for introducing new scientific and technological developments after rigorous brainstorming sessions with stakeholders from industry, alumni and academia. Undergraduate students are encouraged to undertake various research projects and spend time in industry.
I feel proud when I share that all faculty in our department are highly motivated and they hold excellent academic credentials. We have skilled supporting staff for the practice courses. Several faculty members serve on the editorial boards of national and international journals, review technical articles for journals on a regular basis, and organize international symposia, workshops and conferences regularly. We strive to ensure that the young minds are trained as per the current market trends in order to solve any real world problem. To facilitate this, the department offers a large number of electives and open elective courses for providing wide spectrum of options to the students to pursue their interest. To equip them for this, we have four major research groups in the department; namely, Signal Processing, RF and Communication, Power and Energy and VLSI Design Group. We sincerely look forward to contribute in the growth of society by providing solutions to the problems of societal importance via cutting edge technologies.
Department is actively involved in several collaborative research activities, and indeed this culture of collaboration is one of the major strengths of the department that enables integrative research based on interactions between investigators in different disciplines. The research programs provide facilities and support for graduate students to pursue their advanced study. Department is actively involved in several ongoing funded projects from various central agencies such as The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (Meity), Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeitY), UKEIRI, Department of Science and Technology (DST), Science and Engineering Research Board (SERB), etc.
I would like to invite Industries, Companies, PSUs and other organizations for conducting the recruitment activities at IIITDM Kancheepuram. Department also looks forward for the potential candidate to join the institute as a faculty member and strengthen the academic and research activities. We welcome you to browse through the departmental web site and want to hear from you. Your comments and suggestions will help us move to the next level and provide us with encouragement to maintain excellence.
Thank you for visiting us.
