Research Initiatives

The Department of ECE is a recognized Research centre under VTU since 2008-09 with the provision for Ph.D. (Full Time / Part Time) and 09 recognized research supervisors’ expertise in various domains like Active control, VLSI, Biomedical Engg, Communication, Signal Processing, Image Processing, Cryptography, Embedded Systems, Digital Circuits & Systems, FPGA Design for big data analytics.

Currently 3 research scholars are pursuing their Ph.D programme and 03 awarded with P hDs from the research center till date.

Department of Electronics and Communication organized Project Exhibition on 15th May 2019 to encourage the students to develop research qualities in Technical field.

To initiate the research qualities in faculties and students Department of ECE has created a platform by providing the facility to use PLC, Sensorics, and Intel Intelligence Labs.
