School of Studies in Electronics and Photonics

About Electronics & Photonics Department


Year of Establishment: 1994

Preamble: The Department provides an unrivalled education in Electronics and photonics. The department has vibrant atmosphere with a combination of strong academic and research activities. Both compliment each other and the students at all levels under the able guidance of the faculty members maintain this brilliant combination and help the Institute to reach the zenith of knowledge and innovation.

Department conducts courses leading to M.Tech. (Optoelectronics & Laser Technology) and M Sc (Electronics). All students joining the M Tech course are required to undergo one year project in an industry or R&D organization and industrial training. The curriculum of these courses is updated regularly to keep it in consonance with the changing industrial environment. It is our mission and vision to implement a curriculum at our University which is at par with the best in the world. Since its birth in 1994, the department has grown in an exponential manner.

The School of Studies in Electronics jointly in collaboration with School of Studies in Physics, is running a Two-year M. Tech Programme in Opto-electronics and Laser Technology sponsored by University Grants Commission under its INNOVATIVE PROGRAMME: Teaching and Research in Interdisciplinary and Emerging Areas. The M.Tech program has been started as an endeavour to attract best of the minds towards teaching and research and to give emphasis in teaching and research in emerging technologies. It has been developed realizing the rapidly growing need for well trained manpower in the field of optoelectronics and lasers. Our M. Tech programme emphasizes practical applications of photonics and provides an educational experience relevant to the student's future career in the photonics-based industry and R & D organizations.

The teaching in the department is closely coupled with the research activities of the department. The teaching program contains a proper blend of basic concepts and advances in technology. The faculty has succeeded in keeping a lively atmosphere among the students, with timely up gradations in the curriculum and innovative teaching techniques. The research thrust of the department is on achieving scientific and technological excellence, through front line research problems with broader socio-scientific relevance. The faculty members are actively engaged in research as well as supervision of research leading to a Ph D degree in the field of optical electronics, semiconductors, Speech & Image Signal Processing and microelectronics. The Department has international collaborations and several research projects funded by the UGC, CCOST, USIEF and UK-India Consortium British Council.

The Department actively helps the students in their placement through Campus interviews. Students post graduating from the Department have found positions in both government and private organizations working in Education, Research & development in Photonic Applications, Telecommunications and Semiconductors.
