Department of Electronic and Telecommunication Engineering


Message from the Head of the Department


Welcome to the Department of Electronic and Telecommunication Engineering. The field of electronics and telecommunications have revolutionized the world over the last century. The development of fundamental theories in transmission of information in late 1920s and the invention of the transistor in early 1950s had changed the world forever. In the recent times, ground breaking innovations in the core field of electronics and telecommunications have slowed down but an exponential growth has happened in emerging applications, innovations, and system level developments in the two fields. Today, electronics and telecommunications act at a core technology for many other practicing industries. In this backdrop, we have recently identified the following six thrust areas to develop expertise: Mobile Communications, Robotics, Machine Vision, Biomedical Technologies, and Embedded Systems. The department has in place a healthy eco-system for research. There are four major research groups that are actively engaged in research and development: Communications, Intelligent Systems, Machine Vision, and Digital Systems. The prototypes developed by these research groups will be transferred to our industrial partners for commercialization.

We welcome industrial partners for long-term research collaborations in electronics, communications, robotics, and biomedical engineering in the hope of solving their industrial problems in a consistent way, which is key for them to maintain sustainability and competitiveness in the long-term.

For our talented students, the Department provides a challenging opportunity of getting exposed to real world problems of varying complexity, while also providing the necessary conducive environment, academic guidance, and technology support to help devise appropriate solutions by themselves for the benefit of humanity. We also encourage and empower our students, those who have the vision, self-motivation, and courage to create their own start-up companies based on what they learn and develop within their stay in the department.
