Welcome to Department of Electronics & Communications Engineering

The ECE department of IIIT-D came into existence in 2012 with an objective to equip students with necessary core competency to succeed long-term in engineering/ entrepreneurship careers after completing the course and prepare them to undertake higher studies and research as career options.

The curriculum is directed to applications in major areas such as VLSI/Circuits, Telecommunication Systems, Signals and Imaging, Robotics and Controls while encouraging development of necessary skills for integration of hardware and software components.
