The Department of Electronics and Communication was established in the year 1991 and is housed in
an independent three storeyed building in the campus. The department offers the 4 year Bachelor’s
degree program [B.Tech] in Electronics and Communication Engineering and 2 year Master degree
program [ M.Tech] in two specializations. The department incepted the post-graduate program in
Advanced Communication and Information Systems in the year 2011 followed by the second program
in Advanced Electronics and Communication Engineering in 2013.
The students for the B.Tech Program are admitted based on rank list prepared by CEE, Govt. of Kerala.
The rank list is generated using the score obtained by the student for the entrance examination
conducted by Government of Kerala and marks obtained in the qualifying examinations. The
department has a total intake of 60 students for the undergraduate program with additional 6 seats
for the later-entry student that are admitted in third semester. B.Tech in Electronics and
Communication Engineering at RIT, Kottayam is the most sought after branch of study by the top
ranked students in the state of Kerala. The post graduate program has an annual intake of 18 students
for each stream of specialization. Admission to the M.Tech Program is based either on merit or valid
GATE score. Currently, 15 numbers of research works under the supervision of ECE faculty are
ongoing in diverse fields of electronics and communication engineering. All these programmes are
affiliated to APJ Abdul Kalam Technological University.
The institute has a dynamic Career Guidance and Placement Cell (CGPC) that work dedicatedly
towards providing placements for students from reputed companies. The department unit of the
CGPC branch conducts timely guidance and training programmes to students, particularly to prefinal year students. Most of our alumni are currently working in reputed in Multi-National Companies.
Some of them have pursued higher studies in IIT, IISc, IIMs, NITs and top ranked foreign Universities.
The faculty of the department are selected based on PSC rank list published by Government of Kerala.
Majority have obtained their higher qualifications from premier institutions in India.
The department laboratories have the state of art equipment and high-quality lab practices with
experienced supporting staff which encourages students to pursue in self-developed and innovative
project works. The department library offers reference books and technical magazines for quick
references. There is a full-fledged computer centre in the department with sufficient computing
facility having broadband internet connectivity which provides journal and e-book for students..
The department periodically organizes seminars and workshops to train faculty and students on
emerging research areas and trends in the area of Electronics Engineering. Faculty from premier
institutions are invited to the department for delivering lectures under visiting faculty schemes.
Various academic activities take place in the department with funding of TEQIP Phase II. Apart from
faculty development programmes, TEQIP supports Equity Assurance Programme (EAP), which includes
remedial classes and scholarships for the students. Industry-Institute Interaction Cell (IIC) of TEQIP
scheme regularly conducts talk by industry experts in the department. The Electronic Association is
very active in organizing and conducting technical festivals and project exhibitions. Students are
encouraged to participate in intercollegiate technical /cultural competitions organized by other
The UG programme of the department was accredited by NBA in 2007-2010, 2016-2019 and currently
for the period 2019-2021. The practices recommended by outcome-based education (OBE) are
followed in the department and conducts periodic review by class committee, class PTA, department

the outcome achieved.
The department aims to bring about a generation of graduates with professional outlook equipped
with in-depth knowledge in Electronics and its related fields.
Established in the year 1991, the department aims to induce academic knowledge and laboratory exposure to bring about proficient electronic-radio-communication engineers. The students are provided with an extensive knowledge and ideas from well-trained and dedicated faculty most of them being PhD holders from premier institutes in the country. The programs are student orientation in both academic as well as non-academic arenas. They are encouraged to participate in technical and non technical events to develop more confidence and hone their soft and technical skills. Students are motivated to undergo in-plant training and many industrial visits (IV) are arranged every year to get industry exposure. Sponsored research projects investigated by the faculty and supported by various government and research organizations have helped the department to take giant leaps in research related activities. The research activities in the department proliferate in various domain in the field of electronics and communication involving students which helps the undergraduates foster desire for life long learning.
