Electronics and Communication is the establishment of communication link between two destinations by means of electronic devices and systems. With a prophetic phrase sent as a telegraphic message over the Atlantic ocean by Samuel F.B Morse in 1837 was born a new era, the era of electrical communication. Today communication enters our daily lives in so many ways that it is very easy to overlook the multitude of its facets. The mobiles at our hands, the radio and television in our living rooms, the computer terminals in our offices and homes are all capable of providing rapid communication from every corner of the globe.
Basically the electronics and communication engineering can be divided into two substreams, highly correlated in one way and greatly diversified in the other way.
a. Analog and digital circuits: Topics like electronic devices, linear and digital integrated circuits (chips), microprocessors, microcontrollers, VLSI (very large scale integration), ULSI (ultra large scale integration), Computer Hardware are the topics dealt with in these substreams.
b. Communication systems: Establishment of a communication link, design of transmitters and receivers, effect of noise on the performance of the system are some of the broad areas of interest in this field. Topics like electromagnetics, antennas and wave propagation, signals and systems, probability and stochastic processes, analog and digital communication with the aid of mobile phones, satellites, and optical fibers.
In the Aurora's Engineering College, the department of Electronics and Communication Engineering has been in existence since its inception in 1998 and produced 15 batches of undergraduates. The department is the alma-mater of many graduates settled in respectable high positions at home and abroad. As a result of the excellent teaching methodology adopted by a highly dedicated and committed team of 69 faculty members in producing exceptional caliber graduates during the past, the AICTE has permitted for increase in intake from 60 to 120 at undergraduate level from 2003, 120 to 180 from 2011, intake has been increased to 240 in the year 2012. In addition to undergraduate course, the department has opened up admissions for postgraduate courses viz., VLSI system design from 2004 and communication systems from 2006. In addition the department has started offering PG course in Embedded Systems from 2007. At present the department has highly qualified senior faculty which includes, 1 Professor, 8 Associate Professors, 2 Senior Assistant Professors and 58 Assistant Professors. Apart from it the department takes the services of 7 Laboratory Assistants and 1 Data Entry Operators. The department is recognized by dedicated teachers, devoted students, committed supporting staff and expert technical staff. The students of ECE department in addition to securing higher ranks in competitive examinations like GATE, TOEFL, GRE etc ., represented the college in various national and international seminars and conferences and thereby brought laurels to the college. The pass percentage of students has been consistent with more than 80 percentage since 2002. To satisfy the benchmark laid down by the AICTE, New-Delhi for quality education , the department of ECE got accredited by National Board of Accreditation New-Delhi during the year 2009.
