The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering was established in the year 1968 to start a 5-year B.E. degree programme affiliated to the Madras University. The first batch of students graduated from the department in the year 1973. A post graduate programme leading to M.E. degree in 'Communication Systems' was introduced in the year 1976. Consequent upon the establishment of Bharathidasan University in Tiruchirapalli, the affiliation of both programmes were shifted to the new University from 1982 onwards. All the undergraduate programmes of the institutions were granted autonomy from the academic year 1986-87. Commencing from the academic year 1997-97, the post graduate programme in 'Communication Systems' is being funded by the Ministry of Human Resources, Govt. of India.
In the year 1998, AICTE approval was obtained for introducing a second post graduate programme in 'VLSI System'. After a brief period of affiliation to Anna University, Chennai, the institution was finally declared by Govt. of India as a National Institute of Technology with Deemed-to-be University status from 28 July 2003.
Thus from a modest beginning, the department has come a long way. Today, it is rated as one among the leading educational institutions of the country in Electronics and Communication Engineering.
The focus of the B.Tech. degree programme is on 'Wireless Communications'. The curriculum is so designed as to give adequate emphasis on the digital processing of information for efficient communication over noisy channels. In tune with the above objective, the syllabus features core courses like Statistical Theory of Communication, DSP Architectures and Systems, Communication Switching Systems, Computer Networks, Communication Electronic Circuits, Microwave Components and Circuits, Satellite Communication, Photonic Devices and Systems, giving a balanced coverage of the theory and practice of modern Communication Engineering. The core programme is supplemented and further reinforced by a well-chosen set of elective courses permitting the students to specialize either in the software or the hardware aspect of Communication Systems.
The first year of the B.Tech(Electronics and Communication Engineering) academic program has common classes for all the departments. The students from all departments are conglomerated together in various sections. Students from all the departments offering B.Tech course are present in any given section.
