About the 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 demands of highly qualified technical personalities. The department offers two programmes namely, Master of Technology and Doctor of Philosophy in Electronics and Communication Engineering. To motivate the students towards conceptual realization and to mould the students to be the backbone of modern technologies in the field of Electronics and Communication Engineering is the vision and mission of the department, respectively.
R. Nakkeeran received B.Sc., in Botany and B.E., in Electronics and Communication Engineering from Madras University in 1987 and 1991, respectively, and M.E., in Electronics and Communication Engineering (diversification in Optical Communication) from Anna University in 1995. He received Ph.D., from Pondicherry University in 2004. Since 1991, he has been with teaching profession. Presently, he is holding the position of Associate Professor in Pondicherry Central University. He is Fellow of IE(I) and OSI, Life Member of IETE and ISTE, Senior Member of IEEE and Member of OSA, SPIE and IEICE. He has published 280+ papers in Journals and Conference Proceedings.

Placement & Internships
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.
Besides the University Fellowship, the research scholars are given fellowships like INSPIRE, UGC GATE, UGC-NET/JRF, MNAF, Vishvesvaraya Scholarship, RGNF, etc. 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 talents beyond the class room learning and keep abreast with upcoming technologies.
