Explore Electrons in Technology

The Department of Electronics & Communication Engineering (ECE) at NIT Durgapur is committed to educate the future work force and to conduct research with collaborators from industry and government. Since offering our first course in Elctronics & Communication engineering in 1984, the Department of Electronics & Communication Engineering (ECE) has become one of the leading programs preparing students for this career choice. Our distinguished faculty works closely with students who come from throughout the nation, and other countries. We work across interdisciplinary boundaries to assemble effective multidisciplinary research groups. Our research and teaching concentrate among the broadly defined areas of VLSI, Tele-communication technologies, Signal & Image processing, Energy and Nanotechnology.
ECE department is aimed at shaping the students by providing an outstanding education in Electronics & Communication engineering, maintaining high standards in the creation and dissemination of knowledge, and serving both the public and private sectors through the collective experience and expertise of our faculty and students. A broad-based core of courses, that include VLSI, Digital Systems (Embedded Systems), MEMS, Electromagnetic (Microwave), Antenna, Tele-Communication, Mobile communication and Signal Processing develop the skills necessary to perform broad variety of tasks. The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering at NIT Durgapur covers a host of subjects inclusive of electronic circuits, microprocessors, digital signal processing, image processing and computer vision, soft computing, analog communication, digital communication, mobile communication, VLSI, embedded Systems, antenna, micrwave, electronic instrumentation and many more.
The Electronics & Communication Engineering program prepares engineers who understand and can apply established scientific and technical knowledge and methods in combination with high-tech skills of modern technology to support engineering activities. Students are provided with a strong concentration of both classroom instruction and practical hands-on laboratory design and testing experiences. Graduates are qualified for application positions in electronic systems analysis and design, product design and development, technical sales and service, and field engineering operations and maintenance. We encourage innovation and creativity among students who wish to pursue extracurriculer projects. Students are often take up the leading positions in the various multidisciplinary activities at NITD under the umbrella of different student clubs like Maths 'N' Tech Club (math and technology awareness), ROBOCON (robotics), PRAKRITI (environmental awareness) etc. Students motivated to academics and research have joined Master's and PhD programs in reputed Universities around the globe. They are also placed in respectable multinational companies and seen around the world.
Academic departments and research Labs housed within ECE, combined with the resources of a large, comprehensive Institute, provide unparalleled opportunities for cross-disciplinary research and education.


NIT Durgapur is ranked one among top National level technical Institutes, in terms of number of students receiving placement offers from reputed organizations from all over the country.
