Electronics today stands at the forefront of the rapidly expanding horizon of Science and Technology. Growth in the field of electronics has been so phenomenal in the recent years that it has entirely changed the life style of people. The ease, the precision, the sophistication and the flexibility provided by electronics in all walks of life and industrial systems has made it a very important subject of study. It is indeed considered as a catalyst of scientific and technological progress. Electronics has, therefore, become a core subject in the engineering curricula of all disciplines. However, it has been recognized that in order to keep pace with the rapid technological developments taking place all over the world, the engineering-oriented training alone is just not sufficient for our country.
The Department of Electronics lays a heavy emphasis on frontier fields of Electronics with a prudent mixing of Science and Engineering oriented subjects. Accordingly, the teaching and research activities of the Department are centered around the Semiconductor Science and Device Fabrication. Most of the sophistication of the modern Electronics is, in fact, hidden in the intricacies of Electronic Materials, Devices, Design, Simulation, Production and Testing. Scientific and Engineering efforts are required to realize the Electronic Gizmos that are in use today. Hence, the research work in Electronic Science, encompasses diverse areas from the Scientific and Technological aspects of Physics, Materials Science, Chemistry, Biology, Electronics Engineering, Control Engineering, Information Technology, Computer Science etc. Accordingly, the Department of Electronics could make efforts with emphasis on studies on "Preparation, Characterization and Physical Properties of various Semiconducting Materials and their Electronic Device Applications".
The major areas of research in Department are as follows:
=> Electronic / Semiconducting Materials and Devices
=> Sensors & Transducers – Interfacing
=> Electroluminescent(EL) Display Devices
=> BioSensors & Bio Electronics
=> Polymer Electronics
The Department of Electronics established an Electronic Alumni Association (EAA) in April 2003 comprising of past students of M.Sc. (Electronic Science) and Ph.D. programs of the Department.
