The Department of ECE offers B.E. (Electronics and Communication Engineering) and M.E (Embedded Systems Technologies.) Programmes. The total sanctioned student strength is 120 for UG Programme and 18 for PG programme. The Department has a core team of qualified and experienced faculty members with industrial and research background. The department is equipped with full-fledged laboratories and has audio-visual facilities with LCD for effective teaching and learning.
The department has very active ISTE and IETE-ISF Student's Chapters, EFY-ESDC centre, Centre for Arduino Skill Development and MATLAB Forum. Student members of these clubs and chapters actively participate in the various activities organised by the ISTE, IETE-ISF, EFY-ESDC, Arduino Skill Development and MATLAB training and project contests. Students are given wide opportunities for necessary skill development apart from regular academics to make them competitive and industry ready. The Department is regularly organising Value-added training programmes to the students, arrange internship, organise Industry Visits, engage students in Google Classrooms and Moodle platform for 24 x 7 learning, provides support for completing mini projects using popular electronics software such as MATLAB and Xilinx. The department has a Campus wide license for MATLAB. Regular workshops on specific topics, Faculty Development Programmes on emerging areas and Seminars, Workshops and Conferences are also organised for the benefit of staff and students.
Starting with vision and mission of the Institute, the Department Advisory Committee (DAC) developed vision and mission statements of the department.
Vision of the Department
To provide a value-based learning environment and mould the students with a blend of technical skills, moral values and leadership qualities in the field of Electronics and Communication Engineering to cater to the needs of the industry and the society.
Mission of the Department
- Achieving excellence in teaching and learning
- Providing an environment for core competency development and self-learning
- Imbibing the essence of human values, ethics and professional skills for a sustainable growth.
Starting with vision and mission of the department, Department Advisory Committee (DAC) developed the Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs). With PEOs taken as the input the programme specific outcomes are determined. This Outcome Based Education (OBE) environment enabled the Institution to adopt to the requirements of the various stakeholders such as Students, Parents, Alumni, Industry and Faculty. In the present Outcome Based Education (OBE) environment, the formal engineering programmes in India as per the NBA requirement, have outcomes to be achieved at four levels. At the highest level, we have programme educational objectives. At the next level is programme outcomes and programmes specific outcomes. At the next level, we have course outcomes.

CURRICULUM & SYLLABUS for B.E (Electronics & Communication Engineering)
Anna University has implemented choice-based credit system (CBCS) for affiliated colleges, which would help students to take courses of their choice, learn at their own pace and adopt an inter-disciplinary approach to learning.
Curriculum and Syllabus of B.E. (ECE) Programme under CBCS from the AY 2017-18 consists of theory and practical courses categorized as follows:
i) Humanities and Social Sciences (HS) courses include Technical English, Engineering Ethics and Human Values, Communication skills, Environmental Science and Engineering.
ii) Basic Sciences (BS) courses include Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, etc.
iii) Engineering Sciences (ES) courses include Engineering practices, Engineering Graphics, Basics of Electrical / Electronics / Mechanical / Computer Engineering, Instrumentation etc.
iv) Professional Core (PC) courses include the core courses relevant to the chosen specialization/branch.
v) Professional Elective (PE) courses include the elective courses relevant to the chosen specialization/ branch.
vi) Open Elective (OE) courses include the courses from other branches which a student can choose from the list specified in the curriculum.
vii) Employability Enhancement Courses (EEC) include Project Work and/or Internship, Seminar, Professional Practices, Case Study and Industrial/Practical Training.
viii) Self-Study Course: Students not having current backlog (arrear) and has 8.0 CGPA are permitted to opt for a Self-Study course, i.e., online course of 3 credits instead of one elective course with the approval of Head of the Institution and Centre for Academic Courses, Anna University, Chennai. Such students’ need to obtain certification or credit from the online course provider to become eligible for writing the End Semester Examination for the subject to be conducted by Controller of Examinations, Anna University. The details regarding online courses taken up by the eligible students should be sent to the Controller of Examinations, Centre for Academic Courses, Anna University one month before the commencement of End Semester Examination.
1) To get pass in a theory or practical course (subject), a student has to secure not less than 50% of total marks prescribed for the course (Internal Assessment Marks+ End Semester University Examination Marks) with a minimum of 45% of the marks prescribed for the End Semester University Examination. For other details, refer Anna University Regulations 2017.
2) To get First Class, a student should have passed the examination in all courses of all eight semesters within six years and should have secured a CGPA of not less than 7.

COURSE OUTCOMES AND COURSES OFFERED
A course is described in 3 to 6 course outcomes.
- All the courses in the department have certain uniform number of Cos and two courses cannot have identical outcomes.
- The COs must state the major skills, knowledge, attitude or ability that students will acquire.
- Course Outcomes are narrower statements that describe what students are expected to know and be able to do at the end of each course.
- COs relate to the skills, knowledge, and behaviour that students acquire in their enrolment through the course. Therefore, COs are what students are required to demonstrate at the end of a course and is a subset of POs and PSOs. COs should be observable and measurable.
- COs should be expressed in terms of measurable and/or observable behaviours.
- Course outcomes begin with an action verb from Bloom’s taxonomy.
