     The department of Electronics and Communication Engineering was established to impart state- of-the-art knowledge to students and has been functioning since the beginning of the college, i.e., from FY 1989-90, with an intake of 60 students. Presently, the intake of the ECE department is 180 students. The department has a faculty strength of 35 well-qualified, experienced, and dedicated postgraduates with 8 doctorates, and some (16) of them are pursuing Ph.D. in different streams.

        The ECE department encourages students to pursue postgraduate studies and prepares them for leadership roles in research and development. It offers one M.Tech course in VLSI from FY 2011-12.

       The ECE department has good infrastructure with 8 different labs, namely the microwave engineering lab, the microprocessor lab, the digital ICS lab, the communications lab, the computer lab, the EDC lab, the LIC lab, the DSP lab, and the VLSI lab, All the labs are fully equipped to cater to present-day advanced technology. The computer lab and VLSI lab are fully equipped with the necessary systems and software. The department consists of 10 well-furnished classrooms with an e-classroom facility and four staff rooms, a HoD's chamber, and a department library with 1726 volumes comprising different textbooks, magazines, and books for competitive exams.

        The department has two active associations called ISF (IETE student forum) and IEEE student branch and that conduct many technical talks, seminars, quizzes, etc. There are 250 students in the IETE student forum as members and 70 members in IEEE. In every semester, at least two guest lectures are being arranged in addition to the above activities. Our students participate in national and state-level technical competitions and won many prizes, showing their hidden talents. We strongly believe that these associations pave a path to showcase the hidden talents of the students.

       Every year, our final-year students are encouraged to write GATE, CAT, GRE, TOEFL, and IELTS exams. Our students get all-India gate ranks every year. Our students get top ranks in the university exams conducted by Andhra University. Students are encouraged to participate in state- and national-level technical contests. A national-level technical symposium is being held in the department during the first week of March every year.

       The ECE department has established an R&D cell and electronics hobby club with great support and motivation from Dr. T.Venkateswra Rao, Head of the Department, ECE, and Dr. K.Venkateswara Rao, Principal. These two clubs intend to develop expertise in students to prepare them for taking up interviews and placements in the core sectors of electronics and communication engineering. These clubs will conduct guest lectures and workshops with hands- on sessions that will enable students to gain expertise on industry-relevant concepts and skills. Hardware and software resources existing in the R&D center will be utilized for the holistic development of students as well as faculty.
