Electronics & Communication Engineering (ECE) department was established in the year 2008 with an in-take of 60 students. It offers four year undergraduate course in ECE and post graduate program in M.E Applied Electronics with in-take of 24 students. The department is teamed with an excellent state of the art infrastructure, Industrial competitive highly qualified faculty members, active students association and hi-tech Industrial collaborated R&D labs which were set for special purpose training and developments.
Kathir Centre for Advanced Research and development studies (KCARDS) was established in March 2011 and inaugurated by Mr.S.Sasikumar IAS. This centre will aid the students and people from industries to participate/conduct research activities and training programs in the advanced fields of Electrical, Electronics & Communication engineering along with software programming skill sets. Almost trained more than 1000 students on current technological programs. Embedded systems based on Microchip/ARM/Texas Instruments, VLSI based system design, PCB, Cypress PSoC, MC-51 Microcontroller programming, C/C++/Java and so on are the technical training programs being conducted for the students to enrich their capability on development and career prospects.
Many technical Clubs such as Embedded club, Boolean club, Re-Invent club and VLIS & Mixed Signal processing Club. The students can join and make use of their club to conduct various technical programs for their technical capability enhancements. This clubs will organize various technical events every week which caters to the need of updated technological information’s. In addition, faculty members consistently motivate and train the students for participating competitive exams such as GATE/TANCET and so on for their higher academic pursuits and also guide them appropriately to participate in various national and international technical events.
The Department consistently collaborated with leading industries and semiconductor manufacturers on various aspects such as training, research and development and industrial powered sponsored lab setup. This collaboration paves a way for the student community to upgrade their skills competitively on electronic system design and developments. To name a few, the collaborative organizations are:
E-spirit De-Corps an important association governed by the students of our department. Seminars, workshops, group discussions, quizzes, extempore speeches, technical counseling sessions are organized under this banner periodically. These associations also invites guest lectures, conduct national level technical symposium, International conferences (ICATRPD/ICKCE) and quiz competitions to encourage student’s community to participate and enjoy through various events conductions and also it improves their leadership qualities and organizing capacities.
Industrial visits have their its own importance in the career of a student who is pursuing a professional degree. It is considered as a part of college curriculum, seen in engineering courses. Objectives of industrial visit are to provide students an insight regarding internal working of companies. We know, theoretical knowledge is not enough for making a good professional career. With an aim to go beyond academics, periodical industrial visits are arranged with support of our faculty members and to name a few visits are Radio Astronomy center, BSNL, Coir Board, JCS Electronics, ACE Electronics, MPower Electronics & Industries, Keltron and so on.
Our department organized add-on programs periodically as per the current industrial requirements. On completion of the training program, students are motivated toward real time product developments. To name a few, a few of product development for commercial promotions are given
The training & placement cell plays a crucial role in scouting for and locating job opportunities for the young graduates and post graduate passing out from the college through liaison with reputed firms and industrial establishments. It functions under the supervision of a full time Training and Placement officer. This cell will operate round the year to facilitate placements in leading industries. Few of the companies are recruited our students are
We, ECE Department, with an aspiring innovative people will nurture the student’s community to transfer them from pebbles to peak.
The department of ECE and/or in association with industries conducting various technical and non-technical courses during their period of academic tenure in order to make them for better career prospects.

Note:The department had the complete facility to conduct the above stated programs, but the number of programs to be thought will be based on availability of student’s time. The content and the topics of the programs will be modified periodically based on the current industrial requirements. By overall, the above stated programs will mould the students in all aspects for their career prospects such as aptitude, soft skill, programming, hardware engineering, embedded system design, VLSI System design, PCB Design, PSOC design, Competitive exam skills, product developments and so on.
TECHNOLOGICAL LABS IN ASSOCIATION WITH LEADING SEMICONDUCTOR MANUFACTURERS
The departments of ECE consistently work towards collaborating with world leading/renowned semiconductor manufacturers to setup their lab which is greatly used for updating technological knowledge among students community. These labs are sponsored by such manufacturers and are used for non-academic add-on programs, and will be very much useful for product/project development activities.
