About Department

The Department of Electronics Engineering is the first Engineering Department which has been established under the School of Engineering and Technology in the Academic Year 2010 -11 during XI Plan. The prime aim of the Department is to impart quality research in the field of Electronics and Communication Engineering to meet the increasing demand of highly qualified technical personnel. The department offers two programmes namely, Master of Technology and Doctor of Philosophy in Electronics & Communication Engineering.

Vision: To motivate the students towards conceptual realization.

Mission: To mould the students to be the backbone of modern technologies in the field of Electronics & Communication Engineering.

Entrance Examination


Selection of students is based on the national level entrance examination conducted by the Pondicherry University at various places across the country. The entrance examination question paper comprises of 100 objective type questions from Electronics and Communication Engineering subjects at Under Graduate level.


Admission to Ph.D programme is based on the performance in the national level entrance examination conducted by the Pondicherry University at various places across the country. The entrance examination question paper consists of 100 objective type questions from all the major areas of Electronics and Communication Engineering at the Post Graduate level.


The Department Placement activities are mentored by the University Placement Cell with student members and faculty coordinator from the department. Ample opportunities are provided to the eligible students through the Placement Cell to get better placement in companies/ industries. It conducts workshops, mock interviews and organizes on-campus selection process to facilitate placement in MNCs like IBM, HCL, Wipro, Infosys, TCS, Verizon, HP, ITC, CTS, Honeywell, Accenture, iFlex, etc.

Association/ Cell Details

Students’ technical association namely, Innovation Minds of Professional Association Creating Technologies (IMPACT) imparts a platform to bring together young minds from various institutions to share their innovative ideas and develop their technical and personal skills. It will supplement the students to explore their talent beyond the class room learning and keep abreast with upcoming technologies.
