The department of ECE was started in 1999 with an intake of 60. Presently running with 240 intake for B.Tech course, the department is successfully running two M.Tech courses, one in Embedded Systems and the other in VLSI System Design specializations. The department has a team of well experienced, dynamic and highly qualified faculty. In order to disseminate knowledge, the department has been organizing a good number of Guest Lectures, Workshops and encouraging Industry interaction Oriented Programs for the students. To provide practical training to the students, the department has set up many laboratories in various areas of Electronics and Communication Engineering with state– of-the- art equipment and latest versions of software.
The department consists of Electronic Devices and Circuits Lab ,Basic Simulation Lab, Electronic Circuits and Pulse Circuits Lab, IC Applications and HDL Lab, Analog Communication Lab , E-CAD& VLSI lab, Digital Signal Processing Lab and Microprocessor & Micro Controller Lab.
The licensed Software are Multi SIM, TINA-PRO,XILINX, MATLAB, MATLAB TOOLS, DSP Software, TANNER TOOLS. As per JNTU R09,R13 and R15 regulations the VLSI Lab is upgraded with licensed version cadence tools.
Research work in areas like VLSI, Embedded Systems, Image Processing, Wireless Communications has been taken up. The department has professional bodies like IEEE, IETE and ISTE where regular activities are being conducted. The ATRI IETE Student Forum (ISF) is highly recognized by IETE Hyderabad section for the activities that are being carried out.
The Electronics and Communication engineering has grown from the vacuum tubes to the complexity of integrated circuits and optoelectronics. Basic telecommunications have developed into global networks with satellites, fiber optics and the Internet. Computer technology has grown exponentially with processors embedded and carries us into the future with new and exciting engineering challenges. Engineers need to be trained to meet the future engineering challenges.
