The department of ECE was started in 1999 with an intake of 60. Presently with 240 intake for B.Tech course, the department is successfully running two M.Tech courses, one in Embedded Systems and the other in VLSI System Design specializations. The department has a team of well experienced, dynamic and highly qualified staff with 5 Professors.
The department has professional bodies like IEEE, IETE and ISTE where regular activities are being conducted. The ATRI IETE Student Forum (ISF) is highly recognized by IETE Hyderabad section for the activities that are being carried out.
In order to disseminate knowledge, the department has been organizing a good number of short term courses and conferences from time to time. To provide practical training to the students, the department has set up many laboratories in various areas of Electronics and Communication Engineering with state – of-the- art equipment and latest versions of software.
The department consists of Microwaves Lab, VLSI Lab, IC and PDC Lab, E-CAD Lab (VHDL, VERILOG), Electronic Devices and Circuits Lab, Microprocessor Lab, Analog Communications Lab, Digital Communication Lab, Digital Signal and Image Processing Lab and Embedded Systems Lab. The licensed Software are Multi SIM, TINA-PRO, MATLAB, MATLAB TOOLS, DSP Software, TANNER TOOLS. As per JNTU R09 regulations the VLSI Lab is upgraded with licensed version cadence tools. An MoU is signed with Technophilia Systems India (Pvt) Ltd., on behalf of Carnegie Mellon University to establish “Centre for Robotics and Embedded Systems Excellence”
Research work in areas like VLSI, Embedded Systems, Image Processing, Wireless Communications has been taken up.
The main objective of this course is to produce talented engineers in the field of Electronics & Communication Engineering. Emphasis is on teaching design, testing and implementation of electronic circuits required for communication-related areas. Students are taught the applications of Electronics in the field of Communication Systems, Computer Engineering, Radar Engineering, Satellite Communication, etc. TANNER, Cadence Tools for back-end design, supposed to be the best and adopted worldwide, are used.
