Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering
Welcome to the website of the Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering at Meghnad Saha Institute of Technology. The main thrust of the department is technological research and education. The faculty members teach a wide variety of core and elective courses for under-graduate students from the engineering departments of the institute. The department has strong research activities in the field of VLSI and Microelectronics, Communications and Advance Microprocessors / Microcontrollers. The setting up of the IEEE MSIT Student Branch, IEEE MSIT Electron Devices Society Student Branch Chapter and IEEE MSIT Communication Society Student Branch Chapter in this department has not only created new opportunities for research collaboration within and across the institute, it has also provided avenues for new research areas for graduated students seeking admission for higher studies after graduation. The department faculties are involved in a number of research activities independently, in collaboration with faculty members from other departments of the reputed Universities like Jadavpur University and IIEST Shibpur, as part of national or international research networks and partnerships. The department has special labs like Advance VLSI Lab, Innovation lab, Advance Networking Lab to encourage students to perform innovative projects and advance research works. Many research papers have been published in National/International (IEEE and non-IEEE) Conferences and Journals by our students on a regular basis. Students are encouraged to take part in National and International innovative competitions. Recently, one of our student groups received the 1st runner up prize (USD 5000) in Texas instrument Innovation Challenge 2015 as a result of our constant motivation and guidance.
The alumni of the department are well placed in academia, NGOs and the development sector, and in government and private sector. We have an Alumni advisory Board consists of Alumni who are now in core hardware industry like MICROCHIP-USA, INTEL-USA, TI, AMD, FUJITSU, WIPRO, TCS, CTS, IBM, INFOSYS, ICICI, GOOGLE, STANDARD CHARTERED etc and also doing research works in National/International universities/IITs/IISCs. This alumni advisory board provides unique opportunities for aspiring students by sharing their skills and experiences. The department and its faculty members conduct seminars/workshops in almost every month for the efficacious outputs. As the Dept. of ECE of Meghnad Saha Institute of Technology grows in stature and quality, our department aspires to considerably expand its research and teaching activities in new directions, and welcome all initiatives and support which would help us work towards that goal.
