Department of Electronics & Communication Engineering

About Department

The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering started its functioning along with the inception of the institution in the year 1986, with an annual intake of 40 for the UG program and affiliated to the University of Calicut. Within a few years, by the shifting of the campus to Mangattuparamba, the Department got established with the institution.

The affiliation of the UG program was changed to Kannur University in the year 1996 and its intake was increased to 90 in the year 2000, after which the Department runs two batches of UG students. A PG program with the specialization Signal Processing and Embedded Systems was started in the year 2012 with an annual intake of 18. With the formation of Kerala Technological University (KTU), all the programs got affiliated to it, with effect from the admission for the year 2015.
