About us

We are all enjoying exciting things that have been happening recently in the field of Electronics and Communication Engineering. The people across the world are able to connect in no time because of fast growth in this field. This field of engineering and technology has major contribution to the society which we are enjoying and witnessing today. This importance makes Electronics and Communication Engineering branch to stay ever green on top of all other Engineering braches as well.

To contribute to the global growth, Department of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering at Global Academy of Technology came into existence in 2001 with the approval of All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE). Since its commencement, the primary objective of the department has been to impart quality technical education to the students. Currentlythe department has strength of 650 students guided by a team of 35 devoted and diligent staff members.

Undergraduate course of Electronics and Communication engineering covers the major fields of electronics like Digital Signal Processing, Embedded Systems, VLSI Technology Design, Microprocessor and Micro controllers, Microwave Engineering, RADARs, Digital Communication, Satellite Communication, and Mobile Communication apart from basic engineering subjects.

The rapid developments in the field of Communication triggered the inception of PG program on Digital Electronics and Communication. The Department of ECE is recognized by VTU as a Research Centre to offer PhD/ M.Sc.(Eng.) Programs.Department provides a platform for research in emerging areas like Communications, Signal Processing, Image Processing, Microelectronics, nanotechnology and RF/Photonics through its Research Centre and deliberates the latest technologies through its research publications.

The department is proud of the quality, need-based and practical education imparted to students which aids to face the challenges of the fast changing corporate and technical world. With dedicated faculty and excellent coaching in both theory and practical aspects we groom our students in all necessary aspects of engineering. The laboratories are supervised by qualified technical support staff. Equipment in the various laboratories trains the students to expose practical knowledge and illustrate the most important concepts in Electronics and Communication Engineering. To keep in pace with the current technological advancements, in addition to the VTU UG curriculum additional tutorials, tech-talks, workshops are frequently held so that the students get a feel of what exactly is happening outside in the tech-world.  The department has library facilitating the academic and research work of the staff and students. The department has good and consistent placement record with students placed in many Core and IT companies. The department is associated with professional bodies like IETE and ISTE for faculty and students to enhance their research activities. The department has MOU’s with various agencies for the student training in VLSI, Embedded system, robotic, IoT and communication fields.
