PROGRAM SPECIFIC OUTCOMES
Electronics and Communication Engineering program students are able to:
Apply the fundamental knowledge of mathematics, engineering science to identify, formulate, research and solve electronics and communication engineering problems in the areas of antenna design, embedded systems, image processing, VLSI design, wireless communication systems and sensor networks.
Design of analog and digital electronic circuits by using modern engineering and computing tools and develop a system component to meet specific needs by considering public health, safety, societal and environmental issues.
Apply ethical issues, social environmental impact and managerial skills to serve the society and communicate the engineering activities effectively to engineering community.
The department has well equipped laboratories like Electronics lab, Communication Engg. Lab, Digital and Instrumentation lab, Microprocessor lab, Microwave Communication lab, Signal Processing lab and VLSI & Network Lab. Students are given practical training in these labs to understand the operation and behavior of electronic components and systems. Besides laboratory practices, students are trained in industries during summer vacation to have on job experience and know latest trend in the emerging fields. Students of this department go for industrial visits throughout the country.
The students are given an ample number of assignments and their assessment reflects their interest of study. The evaluation is conducted by the Anna University through conducting practical tests and written examinations for every semester. The department maintains a good record of assessment results.
