ECE Department

Strengths and opportunities of ECE Department

     ECE Department was established in the year 2001 with an avowed intent of raising qualified Engineers and Researchers who can make substantial contribution in the field of Electronics and Communication Engineering. The department has ECAD Lab, Processors Lab, Digital Circuits Lab, EDC Lab, VLSI & Embedded Systems Lab and Communications Laboratory equipped with FPGA kits , Microprocessor, Microcontroller & DSP kits, Antenna Measurement system kits, ALSK Kits, MSPEXP430FR5969 kits. Also department has more than 100 systems with licensed software, such as Xilinx ISE , Multisim 8.2.1, Active HDL 6.1, MATLAB 7.5, b2spice 4.2 and MASM .

     ECE department has highly qualified, dedicated and enthusiastic faculty who impart wholistic education to the students. Students of this department not only exhibit their excellence in studies also participate in workshops, National & International level student symposiums, National & International conferences to enhance their technical & life skills. Mr. V. Manish Jain student of this Department has secured University 1st rank and received Gold Medal from the Vice-Chancellor JNTU, Anantapur for his best academic performance in the year 2009.

     ECE is a rapidly advancing field, with new ideas emerging every other second. From mobile phones to remote sensing, there are exciting avenues to explore and create even better ideas. The ECE Department at G.K.C.E prepares students for careers in this constantly evolving discipline. The Department has specialists from the fields of Image Processing, Embedded systems, Communication systems, VLSI Design, Wireless & Mobile Communications etc. The department has well equipped laboratories offering good infrastructure to conduct experiments in all fields and we have generated additional experiments apart from the JNTUA curriculum to impart more practical training to students.

     Every year about 90% of eligible students are securing placements and the department is surging ahead to achieve 100% placements through on and off campus placements. At present department is running a full time UG program in ECE, one full time PG program in Digital Electronics & Communication Systems (DECS) specialization and one II shift Diploma course(DECE). The department has embarked research activities in the fields of

  • Signal & Image Processing
  • VLSI & Embedded systems
  • Computer Networking & Communications
  • Wireless & Mobile Communications and looking forward to have tie-ups with companies/ Industries in these fields to carry out and develop research these fields.

     In every summer vacation pre-final year students prepare working models in all the fields of ECE discipline. Technical experts are invited for National level Students Symposium to enhance the technical knowledge of the students in diversified fields. GKCE students designed and developed the working model on GSM based Digital Display system and trials are on to embed voice control. Every year the Department is successfully conducting National level student symposiums. The biannual news letter ELCOM released by ECE Department gives opportunity to the students to bring on their proficiency and explore skills by way of contributing articles on various subjects.

     The overall environment in the department is conducive and congenial for steady growth of knowledge, personality development and improves research aptitude of students. The academic activity is continuously geared up and monitored to cope up with emerging trends of technological development and innovations. Number of academic activities, events, co-curricular and extracurricular activities empower the students to place them in the higher bracket of “Ready to be Absorbed” industries.

Vision of the Department

To raise the technocrats who can make substantial contribution in the field of Electronics & Communication Engineering.
