The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering was set up in the year 2001 at Meenakshi Sundararajan Engineering College. This twelve-year-old department shares the mission and vision of the Institute in imparting quality education to the students. The department has been efficacious in offering its students the opportunity to work on diverse hardware and software platform. In order to meet the wide ranging, challenging and very rapidly growing Global Demands for “Professional Electronics and Communication Engineers” in this Hi-Tech Era, the Department of “Electronics and Communication Engineering” was established.

The First year Core Curriculum begins with a common knowledge base and customizes Students by grounding in basic Engineering Foundation and in Critical Hands-on Skills in Engineering Practices. The Course has access to enhance the Learning, Student Perspective and Experience to develop Specialization in areas of ‘Electronics and Communication Engineering’. Class room learning is complemented by practical in Hi-Tech Labs, Projects and Hands on Experiences, so as to foster Knowledge in ‘Engineering and Technology’.
