Management courses MBA


The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering has been playing a vital role in producing quality engineers ever since it was established in the year 1999. The department runs one under graduate program and two post graduate programs to cater to the ever - changing needs of technical excellence in all areas of Electronics and Communication Engineering such as VLSI Design, Embedded Systems, Telecommunications, Signal Processing etc.The intake for Under Graduate Program (B. Tech) is 240. The department also offers Post Graduation programs with specialization in Digital Electronics and Communication Systems (DECS) and Embedded Systems (ES) with an intake of 18 each.

The Department is headed by Prof. Y. Pandurangaiah having vast teaching experience and ably supported by highly qualified faculty with an unparallel level of expertise in their field. The Department constitutes 07 Professors, 17 Associate Professors and 42 Assistant Professors.

The UG Program has been accredited by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA) till the year 2017.

Keeping in mind the great potential and demand for new communication technologies, the department aims at imparting its students with the latest knowledge in the field. To accomplish this, the department has well stocked laboratories housing various modern equipments and special software packages to enable the students to keep pace with the fast changing technology.

Some of the laboratories are:

    1.  Electronic Devices and Circuits Lab
    2.  Simulation Lab (MATLAB, LABVIEW)
    3.  Pulse and Digital Circuits Lab
    4.  Electronic Circuit Analysis Lab
    5.  IC Applications Lab
    6.  Microprocessors and Interfacing Lab
    7.  Analog Communications Lab
    8.  Microwave Engineering and Digital Communications Lab
    9.  Digital Signal Processing Lab
   10.  Embedded Systems Lab
   11.  VLSI Design Lab


In addition to the traditional labs, the department has also established the following Centers of excellence viz.

    1.  Center of Excellence in Cadence VLSI Design
    2.  Center of Excellence in NI LabVIEW Academy
    3.  Center for Advanced Signal Processing
    4.  Center for RF and Microwave Simulation


The Department of ECE is having professional society memberships like IEEE, IETE, ISTE, IE (India) etc., and actively participates in conducting various events in association with the above mentioned professional bodies periodically.

The Department also has its own technical association, the VIVECA (Viable Innovators of Vardhaman Electronics and Communication Engineers Association) comprising of the faculty members and the student members. It organizes the co-curricular and extracurricular activities for the students in order to sharpen their creativity. The association periodically conducts quiz programs, seminars and group discussions and so on to promote their professional interest and make them aware of the latest technology and its advances.

The Department of ECE has an excellent placement record. The Department nurtures students to enhance leadership skills, technical skills, and management abilities applicable to needs of Industries. Students have obtained prestigious placements with leading companies such as TCS, Infosys, Robert Bosch, CSC, Tech Mahindra, TekSystems, Flipkart, Mphasis, Redpine Signals, Oracle, Polaris, Covergys, NTT DATA etc. A few are pursuing their higher studies at prestigious institutions in India and abroad as well. Alumni of ECE Department of VCE occupy key positions in industry and are successful as entrepreneurs.

Faculty are encouraged to take independent initiatives with collective responsibility in all the relevant academic and    R & D dimensions like Teaching, Curriculum development, graduate research supervision, Research and Development, continuing education or organization of conferences / workshops, symposia etc. They have ample freedom to associate as members of team with other faculty, research engineers or with faculty in interdisciplinary areas.
