In the past few years, our students made us proud by winning prizes in areas such as Inter-college Project/Poster competition, Inter-college Cultural and Sports competitions and publishing paper in reputed journals.

Technical Activities

The Institution of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineers (IETE) is India's leading recognized professional society devoted to the advancement of Science, Technology, Electronics, Telecommunication, and Information Technology. We form the Student Chapters of Electronics and Telecommunication department in conjunction with the Electronics and Telecommunication Students’ Association (ETSA). Both the committees try giving beyond classroom knowledge to students by providing hands-on experience on various software and hardware thus making them ready for the real-world challenges. We try motivating students by giving them a platform to get familiar with the concepts apart from the curriculum so that they can adapt reasoning and critical thinking to solve technical problems efficiently.

Students Projects

Department of Electronics & Telecommunication Engineering is committed to impart technical Knowledge and continuous mentoring to help students excel in the Project work. Our department believes that the key parameters to make a real time project successful are, ‘Literature Survey/Analysis’, ’Problem statement generation’, ’Expertise on hardware and software tools’ and ‘Designing a novel methodology’ during implementation phase. The Department offers good laboratory facilities to train students in the area of simulation, design and testing.

The department lays great emphasis to carry out research-based projects in the subjects of VLSI, RF and Microwave Engineering, Antenna Designing, Microcontroller and Microprocessor’s, Analog and Digital Communication.
