The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering of M.P.NACHIMUTHU M. JAGANATHAN ENGINEERING COLLEGE was established in the academic year 2001 with an annual intake of 60. The intake was increased to 90 from the academic year 2008. In addition to this, the department offers M.E. Programme with an intake of 18 in the specialization of VLSI Design from the year 2011.
The objective of this programme is to learn the concepts of electronics and communication disciplines and apply them to solve real world problems in the industry. It emphasizes the design of hardware systems as well as communication systems. The students start the programme learning the fundamental concepts of electronics engineering, while doing foundation courses in mathematics and physics in tandem. A student then progresses to study core subjects of electronics such as Analog and Pulse Circuits, Electronic Circuit Analysis, communications courses such as Analog and Digital Communications, Signals and Systems etc. The foundations laid by these basic courses enable students to select various electives that provide them with specialized skill sets. A student successfully completing this programme would be well equipped with necessary skills to either pursue higher studies or work in industry as IC Design Engineer, Systems Engineer, Embedded Systems Design Engineer, RF Engineer, Wireless / Mobile Network Engineer etc.
