M.Tech in Electronics & Communication Engineering (ECE)

2 Years Program

Program Overview

M.Tech. in Electronics and Communications is a two-year postgraduate degree program for engineering students. Electronics and communication is an allied branch of engineering that deals with the research, design, manufacturing, and testing of electronic and communication devices. With the increasing dependability of the people on electronic gadgets and communication devices, electronics & communication engineering has been evolving rapidly in the present scenario. The current technology in ECE focuses on integrating software, hardware, and firmware. Therefore, it creates the demand for VLSI engineers across the industries. Furthermore, the telecom industry is also expanding its business operations, requiring communication engineers on a large scale. The primary subjects of ECE involve Embedded/ VLSI Design, Signal Image Processing, Communication Systems, Robotics, and Artificial Intelligence.
