The Department of Electronics & Communication Engineering aims at producing qualified and dynamic engineers in the fast changing areas of Electronics and Communication Engineering. This undergraduate course has gained paramount importance and has proved to be indispensable to industrial establishments.
The advancements registered in Information Technology are in fact not possible without a parallel stream of developments in the filed of Electronics and Communication Engineering. Therefore, a great reliance on this branch of learning is key for the ripple benefits in other domains of technology, more so in the field of computers. It is considered as an Evergreen Branch in the parlance of the job market. The current trends are in favour of this branch and being a versatile branch, the students can opt for career, either in the field of electronics or communication or software. At Pragati Engineering campus, a strong and energetic teaching force with a strong backing in the form of well furnished laboratories make this branch even more lustrous.
