Electronics and Communication Engineering


Electronics and Communication Engineering is one of the fastest growing field of engineering courses. It involves the transmission of information across the channel.

Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) compiles in Communication Engineering and core Electronics Engineering. The course concept is to focus mainly on the communication part with the knowledge of the electronics field.

Electronics and Communication Engineering deals with the electronic devices and software applications. It is an interface of chip level hardware and information technology”.

One question always rises in the mind!

What is the difference between electrical engineering and electronics engineering fields?

Not too much.

The basic study of ECE is just as the electronics engineering, and communication engineering is an additional field in electronics engineering.

electronics & communication engineering imageThe history of electronics engineering is too ancient but it comes in race with the invention of Radio and Telegraph. At that time the Electronics and Communication Engineering was known as the Radio Engineering.

The Electronics and communication Engineering has been emerged in around 1950s.

Course & Duration

Electronics and communication engineering is an emerging field of engineering.

In first half of the course, the students go through the basic engineering concept, physics, mathematics and chemistry. In the second half of the course, the students go through the core study of communication such as design, digital electronics, fundamental of Electronics engineering, signal & circuit, electronic circuits, VLSI, power electronics, computer architecture, and control systems.

After completion of UG degree the students are designated as the Bachelor of Engineering or Bachelor of Technology, depending on the University.

A bachelor degree usually covers the mathematics, physics, and computer science.

You can choose the Electronics and Communication Engineering, after completed 12th examination with mathematics and science.

The academic criterion of Electronics and Communication Engineering is divided into three courses/programmes as follows:

  1. Diploma courses leading to the polytechnic diploma of 3 years duration. (after 10th or 12th)
  2. UG courses leading to the B.Tech (Bachelor of Technology) degree of 4 years duration. (after 12th)
  3. PG courses leading to the M.Tech (Master of Technology) degree of 2 years duration. (after graduation)

Beside these, it is one of the broad research fields leading to the PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) degree.

For entering in PG (M.Tech/M.E/M.S) programme, B.Tech in Electrical Engineering is must.

Some other courses in this field are listed here:

  • Diploma in Electronics and Communication Engineering
  • Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) in Electronics Engineering
  • Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) in Electronics & Communication Engineering
  • Master of Technology (M.Tech) in Electronics Engineering
