Electronics and Communication Technology

Introduction: Department of Electronic Science was established for the first time in NE India at Gauhati University in 1993 with financial support from Department of Electronics (DoE), Govt. of India. The department initially offered M.Sc in Electronic Science as PG level program for students with 3 Years BSc degree in Electronics/Physics / Mathematics. The Department received financial support from Department of Science and Technology (DST), Govt. of India under  DST- FIST program, in 2000 to set up an advanced computational and networking Laboratory. During 2009 - 2010, the department was renamed as Department of Electronics and Communication Technology, and brought under the Faculty of Technology of the University. Further, nomenclature of the PG program was also changed to M.Sc in Electronics and Communication Technology. The department also offers M.Phil and Ph.D programs in Electronics and Communication Technology. Currently, M.Sc. program in Microelectronics and Advanced Communication is also being introduced by the department with financial support received from University Grant Commission (UGC) under UGC innovative program - 2011.  The Department has well equipped Laboratories, Library and ICT enabled class rooms with high speed Internet connectivity to cater requirements of  Student, ResearchScholars,  and Faculty members. The Department has been undertaking R&D activities in the field of Nanoscience & Nanotechnology, Fiber Optic Sensors, Antenna Design, Microwave, Instrumentation, Embedded Systems and Communication Systems. The Department has been publishing a number of original research papers in peer review Journals and conference proceedings. International conferences, Refresher courses, workshops and summer schools are also being organized by the department as part of its outreach programs.

Mission: To produce skilled manpower and promote advanced R&D activities in Electronics and related areas

Vision: To make the Department as one of the finest and resourceful centres in India for Teaching, Learning & Research in Electronics
