The Projects Laboratory has a key role in promoting practical and hands-on education throughout the undergraduate careers of Electronics and Communication Engineering students. The Projects Lab is where students apply their knowledge of theory to improve their skills on the design, analysis, implementation, and experimentation of new Technologies. Our goal is to provide state-of-the-art environment where students become proficient at both the physical and creative skills needed in the workforce.
Every academic year, nearly 100% of final year students get placed as System Engineers, Technical Support Executives, Techno Commercial Trainees, Consultants, and Executive Trainers in various companies such as:
● SMART Training
● Rich Magnate Developers
● Askme Digital Media Company
SCOPE FOR HIGHER STUDIES
ECE provides a wide scope for aspiring engineers to pursue postgraduate studies, Master of Philosophy and Doctorate of Philosophy. It includes specialisations in nanotechnology, robotics, high-speed automated processors in embedded systems and image processors.
There are many job categories for which a person with training in electronic technology may qualify. A few are listed below:
● Scientists and Engineers
