History

In the late fifties, the Government of India decided to establish Regional Engineering Colleges (RECs) under the Quality Technical Education Policy-one each in every major state-with the prime objectives of imparting quality technical education throughout the country and fostering national integration. The Bachelor of Engineering (B.E.) program was started with 3 branches of engineering namely, Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Electrical Engineering. Considering the success in achieving the objective of ensuring a promising carrier of the students of the above disciplines, inspired the committee to come up with new branches which led to the foundation of Electronics and Communication Department in 1983 with the initial intake of 20 students in under graduate (UG) program. Later on, due to successful completions of several batches, the strength of the department increased to 30 in 1988-89, 40 in 2005-06, 60 in 2006-07, 92 in 2008-09 and finally a total of 120 students in 2013-14. In 2013-14, the department bagged NBA accreditation for 5 years for UG program and became second NIT in India whose department of ECE has achieved this accreditation. Continuing with the successful road map, the department started its first post graduate (PG) program in Microelectronics and VLSI Design in 2007-08 with an initial intake of 13 students whose strength increased to 20 in 2008-09. But later on, in order to come up with a new specialization in PG program with the existing facilities, the number of intake was scaled down to 10 in 2014-15. In 2013-14, the department came up with a new PG program in Communication and Signal processing engineering.
