The department of Electronics Engineering was established in 2010 to meet the rising demand of quality engineers by the society. Prior to this, the Electrical Engineering department was partially catering for this need by offering Electronics as a specialization in its undergraduate program. Now as its undergraduate program has taken its roots, the Electronics Engineering department has been mandated by the university to start its postgraduate program from 2014. Under this program, the following degrees will be offered:

• Master of Science in Electronics Engineering
• Doctor of Philosophy in Electronics Engineering

This branch of Engineering is at the forefront of providing the humanity with improved services and has resulted in inventions never heard before. The field of Electronics Engineering as a discipline can be sub-divided into various exciting branches, and therefore keeping in view the local and global needs the above-mentioned degrees will be offered with the following specializations:

  • Electronic System Design
  • Semiconductor Materials,Devices and Design
  • Bio-Electronics

The faculty of Electronics Engineering Department is highly qualified and holds diverse research interests in the above-mentioned areas. In addition to their academic responsibilities, the faculty is involved in conducting quality research in their respective fields of investigation.

Research Facilities and Groups

Research training is core part of our graduate program. All Postgraduate students are required to complete research thesis culminating in research publication in high-impact factor journals. To facilitate in their research activities, all Postgraduate students are provided with dedicated state-of-the-art computers, high-speed internet access, subscriptions to many quality journal publications as well as full-time access to research labs.
