Electronics and Communication Technology

Mission

The department, being the only department in the entire North –East region offering M. Sc in the field of Electronics, aims to produce qualified manpower with both know-why & know-how for inducting accelerated industrial development of this region. The vision of the department is to proceed in the path" From Concept to Reality"

Objectives

Electronics has always been a catalyst of development and growth of almost every segment of present day life. There exists a gap in the developments of Electronics between the developed and developing countries though it is showings signs of shrinkage. One of the reasons that had contributed to this gap was the scarcity of qualified manpower in the field of Electronics. However, in India, there is a general agreement that although the country has been producing an acceptable number of Electronics engineers, developments in the field of Electronics technology has been rather limited. The reason for this deficiency has been the existing divergence between the technology and the understanding of underlying science. The undercurrent of Electronics technology is science-based and there is a need to lay emphasis on knows-why concurrently to know-how. Present day education and training in Electronics has to be custom designed to the needs of the industry and therefore the educational and training system should have a constant rapport with the industry.

The M.Sc. Electronics Course has been introduced with the following objectives-

  • To generate manpower to be ideally suited for taking up design & development assignments in R&D organizations, Universities, in the Private sector and related progressive industries with R&D wings.
  • To generate manpower for getting employment in the industries and other Electronics based organizations of the North Eastern region and other parts of the country.
  • To facilitate the systematic study of Electronics and the associated advances in Science and Technology.
  • To nurture a platform for dissemination of Electronics and its research to the nook and corner not only of Assam but also the North East.

History

The original idea of a PG level Electronics course emanated as a specific recommendation of the UGC sponsored National Workshop organized by the Department of Physics and Astrophysics of Delhi University at the National Science Academy held from October 14-16, 1982. The genesis of the programme started with the argument that the gap between Science and Technology in Electronics Education system in India has gradually widened over a period of time with the consequent slowing down in the development of indigenous technology. To bridge this gap, a two year MSc Electronics Science programme was launched with the approval of Electronics Commission in the year 1984-85 in three Universities viz. University of Delhi, Pune and Calcutta.

Facilities & Assets

The department has facilities adequate to meet the needs of the MSc Electronics course run by it. The following are the major facilities available for the students and research scholars-

Primary instruments are CRO's (Cathode Ray Oscilloscope- dual trace in MHz range), Function Generators, Multimeters, IC Testers etc and all other associated components as per requirement. The circuit lab is used by students of all the four semesters as per slots provided by the daily routine. However, to complete the project works within the stipulated time, fourth semester students are provided extra time and space as per requirements.

Computational Lab

The lab has been developed using financial assistance received under FIST Programme of the DST, Govt. of India in 2000-01. The lab contains P3 and P-4 based PCs using Windows XP to provide facilities to students to work with Matlab, Multisim, PC Trace etc. Computational sessions for C/C++, Matlab and PSpice programming are arranged for students of each semester as required by the syllabus. This AC lab can accommodate over twenty users at a time. The computational lab has a 512 Kbps Internet connection which has also been extended to every part of the department through a high speed LAN.

Opto-Electronics Lab

The lab is meant for project works as well as research works. This sophisticated lab has facilities which are currently housing a study on temperature and displacement sensors using optical fibers under a faculty member of the department.

Instrumentation & Control Lab

This is a research oriented lab. Some web-based experiments are currently going on in this lab.

Microwave Lab

The department also has a microwave lab with all the necessary instruments to perform experiments sufficient to meets the requirements of the course on microwave and special papers attached with it.

History

The original idea of a PG level Electronics Science course emanated as a specific recommendation of the UGC sponsored National Workshop organized by the Department of Physics and Astrophysics of Delhi University at the National Science Academy held from October 14-16, 1982. The genesis of the programme started with the argument that the gap between Science and Technology in Electronics Education system in India has gradually widened over a period of time with the consequent slowing down in the development of indigenous technology. To bridge this gap, a two year MSc Electronics Science programme was launched with the approval of Electronics Commission in the year 1984-85 in three Universities viz. University of Delhi, Pune and Calcutta.

The broad criteria for selection of Universities for MSc (Electronics Science) are-

  • A strong nucleus should exist for promoting effective research activities in the areas of Electronics.
  • Sufficient industries and organizations should exist in order to absorb the products of the MSc Electronics course.
  • There are certain regions in the country where there has not been much industrial developments and perhaps in such regions Electronics Industries may be the cheapest and the easiest to setup. Hilly regions in this context like J&K, Himachal Pradesh, and North Eastern Region may be relevant.

On the basis of the aforesaid criteria, the MSc Electronics Science course was initiated in the Gauhati University (GU) by the Department of Electronics (DOE), Government of India in collaboration with the UGC in the year 1992. This is the only university in the North Eastern region to initiate and continue this course since then. Initially the department was started in the building of the department of Physics and it was subsequently shifted to its present location in the early part of 1996. The department has received financial assistance under FIST programme of the Department of Science and Technology, Govt of India in 2001 and has been benefited considerably while setting up of an Advanced Computational lab and partial modernization of its existing infrastructure.

The Gauhati University has recently recognized the M. Sc. (Electronics Science) course to be equivalent to the B. E. (Electronics Engineering and Telecommunication) course offered by it for technical jobs.
