Dr. Kanmani B
Professor and Head - Department of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering
The Department of Telecommunication Engineering established in the year 1986 offers four year Under Graduate program in Telecommunication Engineering. The faculty of the department practice innovative methods in the Teaching-Learning-Process (T-L-P) that leads to effective implementation of Outcomes-Based-Education (OBE). This quality is reflected through the department getting Accredited by NBA for FIVE years in the Tier-I format (applicable for Batches graduating from 2014 to 2018). The strength of the department is the Human Resource: Dedicated faculty, necessary technical staff and enthusiastic students. The curriculum takes the student through effective usage of Modern Engineering Tools like: Matlab, LabVIEW, Multisim, Xilinx, Mentor Graphics, Code-Composer-Studio, Qualnet and HFSS simulation tools. Through the AICTE-MODROBS funding, FOUR laboratories in the department have been modernized: (i) Signal Analysis & Synthesis, (ii) Analog & Digital Electronics, (iii) Signal Processing & Embedded and (iv) Digital Communication. The interaction with National Instruments has resulted in the successful completion of the AICTE-IIPC Project. The department has strong interactions with relevant industries, and their contribution is reflected in through guidance in curriculum design, organization of industrial visits, conduction of expert lectures, organization of workshops, and joint research.
The department is a recognized research center by VTU. All faculty actively pursue research in core-domain and in the domain of Engineering Education. Research carried out in the department has resulted in total of 264 publications(68 Peer-Reviewed Journal publications, 164 International Conference publications,32 National Conference publications). The Projects of our under graduate students has resulted in 102 publications.
The department prepares the graduating engineers so that they are able to pursue a successful professional career. The quality of the graduating students is reflected in good on-campus/off-campus recruitments. A significant number of our graduates pursue higher education in Engineering/ Management in prestigious Universities in India and outside India (Europe/ America/ Australia).
Our graduates shall be globally competent Engineering professionals
The department will achieve the Vision through: Framing suitable curriculum; followed by effective implementation of the framed curriculum; Execute industry relevant projects; Pursue Research leading to International Journal/ Conference publications and Provide due emphasis on Professional Ethics and Social/Environmental Concerns.
