Electronics & Communication Engineering

Electronics & Communication Engineering is the combination of two major branches of engineering, Electronics and Communication. It is one of the largest and fastest growing sectors of the present industry. The role of the electronics engineer is very important in almost all fields ranging from the toys to consumer electronics, from household appliances to satellite communication.


The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering was established in the year 1984 to start a 3-year Diploma course under The Board of Technical Education, Bangalore. In order to ensure high standards of education for its students, the department has constantly upgraded itself by adding well-equipped and fully furnished laboratories to supplement the theory courses and to provide a conductive work environment for the students. We combine theory with practical and project work about advanced technology helping our students to work at the forefront of all the major areas of electronic engineering.

Keeping an eye on the need of industry and the society, We has been conducting numerous core technical workshops for both students and faculty members to meet the vision and mission of the department and eventually of the college. The department of electronics and communication engineering (ECE) has consistently maintained exemplary academic record. We have well-qualified faculty with a vast experience and well-established individual laboratories for the students to study about various hardware and software like PCB design, micro controllers, ARM controller, PLC, Verilog HDL, Matrix Lab etc.

Diploma in Civil Engineering is a course of 6 Semesters at duration of 3 years. In first two semesters student will learn 6 subjects each including theory and practicals. In later course from 3rd to 6th, each semester includes 7 to 8 core subjects including practical.

In first year (1st and 2nd Semester) the students get thorough knowledge of construction materials, get basic knowledge of surveying, Science, Engineering Mathematics, English, Engineering Drawing, Applied Science and computer applications.

In second and third year 3rd Semester onwards they study the Engineering Mechanics, Strength of Materials, Advances in Construction technology, Plannning & designing of Buildings, Bridges, Dams, transportation, Irrigation systems, Testing of Soil & Materials, thorough knowldege in Hydraulics, environment, Water Resouce Management, Sanitary Management. And more over they study the design of Steel and Masonary structures, Town planning etc

Along with core subjects Professional Ethics & Industrial Management is included in curriculum to guide one how to behave and perform duties Ethically knowing all managerial skills in industry as well as society.

Without knowing actual industrial aspects and experience a Diploma program won't be complete. So 52 hours of In-plant training is provided. And one has to do his own Project work so as to bring out his talents and enhance their qualities.

How to become a Civil Engineer?

SSLC / X pass is the minimum eligibility criteria for doing Diploma in Ceramic Technology. A full time Diploma in Ceramic engineering is a 6 Semester / 3 year course.

  1. Must have passed Karnataka SSLC or equivalent examinations.
  2. Candidate other than Karnataka State SSLC has to produce Eligibility Certificate issued by Board of Technical Examinations, Bangalore before admission.
  3. Category I, IIA, IIB, IIIA, IIIB applicable only for Karnataka candidates
  4. Must have domicile certificate having completed at least 5 full academic years of studies in Karnataka, between first standard and SSLC.

Job Scope

There is more scarcity of civil engineers every where today. Students find the major advantages of civil engineering in the government sectors, which has the more opportunities rather than the other fields. It finds the application in Municipalities, D C office, Rural and Public development board, Water supply board etc.

In accordance to the above given information, Civil engineering branch gives more importance to the interaction of many people with the chooser. So, the students get more knowledge about the communication with all field personnel.

Finally civil engineering is a branch which penetrates into a depth and it has a wide range of applications in all fields. All other branches depended on civil in all aspects.

Its scope is vast and plays a vital role in the development of society and environment. Due to this the placement opportunities is everywhere in the same stream or in the other too.

Higer Studies

In Karnataka after completing Diploma there is 10% reservation for each course to get lateral entry to engineering. So after 3 years of diploma they can join directly to 2nd year (3rd Semester) of Engineering.

On completion of Diploma in Civil Engineering they have to apply for D-CET and get qualified for Lateral Entry in Engineering Colleges
