Departmental primary academic programs are in accordance with the prescribed curriculum of the affiliating university with additional emphasis on the fundamentals of Electronics & Communication Engineering so as to strengthen the foundation of the subject among young students.

ECE department is accredited by NBA (National Board of Accreditation) for the period 2017-2020.

A group of 2/3 students conduct experiments in laboratories under the supervision of concerned teachers and lab assistants. Final Year project works are primarily of industrial nature so that students may acquire deadline oriented problem solving skills. Special credit is attributed to projects which lead to a successful commercial product or a start-up. Due weightage is given to group discussion and seminars on contemporary and technical topics. This is an important component in engineering education because it helps the students to face the placement interviews with confidence. Department regularly initiates and hosts Technical and Non-Technical Workshops and Seminars on pertinent subjects of interest and need. Students of the department has successfully participated and won national competitions on Robotics, Machine Learning and Electronics such as Sankalp Hackathon and Smart India Hackathon (AICTE).

Their communication as well as technical skill are thus developed and synchronized. The objective is to achieve excellence by manifesting and inculcating the inherent knowledge of the student and help him occupy the best platform in his/her professional life. Department also endorses students with entrepreneurial skills to be a member of Entrepreneurship Cell specially designed to facilitate the process of business model generation.

Apart from all standard laboratories as per requirement of the affiliating university, there are few specialized laboratories for projects such as Advanced Communication Engineering Lab and Advanced Microelectronics & VLSI Lab for research and post-graduate studies. Department has a separate PCB and Enclosure fabrication unit attached with Innovation Lab partly funded by Texas Instruments for rapid prototyping needs. In addition to hardware resources, the department possess software simulation tools such as MATLAB, Simulink, Spice etc. A special emphasis is on Free and Open Source movement, thus encouraging and educating students on open source softwares. Electronics and Communication Engineering Department, BCREC is a pioneer in research and innovation headed by competent faculties as is reflected by in numerous publications in reputed journals.


To aspire to be a premier department imparting world class technical education in tune with industry requirements, inculcate research motivation through academic excellence.


The mission of the department is to create & provide state of the art infrastructure and a facilitating environment toward quality education and promote high standards of professional ethics, transparency and accountability leading to a strong foundation in Electronics and Communication Engineering and the underlying mathematics, science in an environment that combines engineering practice, encourages collaborative research and consultancies with industries.
