About the Department
The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering was setup during the inception of Bethlahem Institute of Engineering (BIoE) in 2008. The effort of well qualified faculty and world class infrastructure of the department has grown up from strength to strength. Currently, the student intake is 60 at the UG level and the faculty of the department is actively involved in the teaching – learning process and research activities with specializations in the core areas of Applied Electronics, Computer Communication, Communication Systems, Signal Processing, Embedded System and VLSI. After the successful completion of first batch UG students, PG Applied Electronics was started in the academic year 2012-2013 with 24 intake, followed by this is PG Communication systems in 2014-2015 with 24 intake. The department encourages the students to present papers in symposia and conferences as well as to participate in various inter-collegiate technical and non-technical events. The department is well equipped with the state-of-the-art laboratories with all the modern gadgets and latest tools such as Cadence VLSI Design Suite, DSP Processor, Scilab, Zigbee Module, Xilinx, MATLAB, ARM CORTEX, LAB View, Software Defined Radio, Multisim and FPGA Board to make the students industry ready. The department has MOUs with various industries in and around Tamil Nadu to facilitate the students in industrial visits, implant training, Project design, Training and Placement. The department actively organizes Industry Visits, National Level Conference, Workshops, Technical talks, Guest lecturers from Industry/Academic experts in order to enhance their learning and skill abilities, creative thinking and also to bridge the gap between the Industry and Academia.
Outcome Based Education
Electronics and Communication Engineering at BIoE endeavors to follow the Outcome Based Education for all the UG and PG programme offered under the choice based credit system (CBCS) curriculum. It is aimed to achieve the outcomes in terms of Remembering, Understanding, Applying, Analysing, Evaluating and Create at the end of the programme. This entails a regular methodology for ascertaining the attainment of outcomes, and benchmarking these against the Program Educational Objectives (PEOs), Program Outcomes (POs), Program Specific Outcomes (PSOs) consistent with the objectives of the programme.

An Electronics and Communication Engineer could provide his/her input on any stage of an on-going project. From the initial brief and design and development stage to the testing of prototypes and end manufacture of the product/system. There can be requirements to work with peers from other engineering disciplines to collaborate and manufacture the end product. There are several duties that entail the duties of an Electronics and Communication Engineer:
The students of ECE can have a progressive future and can find roles as an Electronics Engineer, Electronics and Communication Engineer, Electronics Design & Development Engineer, Desktop Support Engineer and System Control Engineer in a wide range of industries:
