The Department offers a 4-year B.Tech. programme in Electronics and Communication Engineering. The Department of Electronics & Communication Engineering of SSU was first started in year 2010. Our mission and vision are to impart and improve the theoretical knowledge and practical skills of students in Electronics and communication Engineering, keeping pace with the development while significantly contributing to the wealth of knowledge by way of high quality education and research. Moreover our aim is to provide our state and our nation, quality graduates who will contribute to the development of the country in meeting Vision 2020. Strategically situated under the laps of Dhaula Dhar Hills, with its diverse ethnicity and cultures apart from academic studies, students are exposed to opportunities to learn and appreciate the colourful differences between various races through interactions, social works and activities held with the rural people of region. The Department is extremely fortunate to work with such a wonderful group of individuals who have common goals and commitments to improve teaching and research activities, to cut through the frontiers of Electronics and Communication Engineering field to benefit the nation, the society and the mankind at large.

Currently, we have 250 students up to second year, with an annual intake of 60 students. Though the numbers are small, we took great pride in the close rapport between the staffs and the students which has always been the trademark for the department. So, all are welcome to visit Electronics and Communication Engineering Department of SSU and make your own assessment about our Department.

The objective of the Department is to prepare students with a good foundation so that they become graduate and effective system engineers. The Department has dedicated faculty members and a well equipped modern infrastructure. The results in the university examinations have been excellent throughout.

The department itself has different well equipped labs supporting our curricula and our niche areas – Electronics and Communication. It has the following state-of-art laboratories.

It is an introductory experimental laboratory that explores the design, construction, and debugging of analog electronic circuits. This subject covers diodes, transistors, JFETs, op-amps, and basic analog circuit design as applied to audio and radio frequency circuits. Students spend the second half of the term designing their own projects. Projects vary in scope and breadth, depending on students' level of prior background and interest. In the process, students will learn to understand and use a wide variety of analog circuits. They will learn how to use books and periodicals to find circuit ideas and to supplement their textbook knowledge. The laboratory satisfies the institute laboratory requirement. However, students often find it valuable to have taken more advanced circuit design classes, as they allow for more ambitious final projects.

Electronics is the laboratory which puts knowledge of electricity to useful work.  Electronics applies electrical current flow of electrical charges to circuits to accomplish specific tasks.  Basic electronics is all about electrical components and the circuits consisting of those components.  Common components are resistors, capacitors, inductors, transistors, and integrated circuits. The components are interconnecting with conductors, either physical wires or printed circuits.  The components make up linear analog amplifiers, oscillators, and filters as examples. So students will find basic electronics in every computer, mp3 player, radio, TV and may other appliances in your home, car, or on your body. Components are interconnected to perform a specific task.The laboratory satisfies the institute laboratory requirement. First learn about each individual component and how it works then learn about how to interconnect them to make useful end products. Continue your study by reading the books.
A system is capable of providing information exchange between persons and equipment. The system usually consists of a collection of individual communication networks, transmission systems, relay stations, tributary stations, and terminal equipment capable of interconnection and interoperation so as to form an integrated whole. These individual components must serve a common purpose, be technically compatible, employ common procedures, respond to some form of control, and generally operate in unison.

Digital electronics is based on electronic switches.  A circuit is either on or off represented by the presence of a voltage or not or in some cases two different voltages.  A string of on or off conditions are made to represent numbers.  These are usually binary numbers but could be based on a variety of mathematical bases. .  Any number can be represented in a binary based system with a series of ones' and zero's. These basic concepts are the building blocks for more sophisticated configurations of digital electronic integrated circuits.  Today digital integrated circuits combine hundreds and thousands of switches per IC package.  It is not necessary to know exactly what the internal circuitry is but you must know the fundamentals to understand how to use the IC's together to build digital equipment.  Our computer industry today depends upon many people knowing and using these same basic fundamentals. The laboratory satisfies the institute laboratory requirement

Electronic circuit simulation uses mathematical models to replicate the behaviour of an actual electronic device or circuit. Simulating a circuit’s behaviour before actually building it greatly improves efficiency and provides insights into the behaviour of electronics circuit designs. In particular, for integrated circuits, the tooling (photomasks) is expensive, breadboards are impractical, and probing the behaviour of internal signals is extremely difficult. Therefore almost all IC design relies heavily on simulation. The most well known analog simulator is SPICE. Probably the best known digital simulators are those based on Verilog and VHDL. Printed circuit board (PCB) design requires specific models as well, such as transmission lines for the traces and IBIS models for driving and receiving electronics.

Measurement is the process or the result of determining the magnitude of a quantity, such as length or mass, relative to a unit of measurement, such as a meter or a kilogram.EMI lab comprises of measuring instruments and devices for performing various experiments related to measurement of important electrical parameters like voltage, current, power, energy, frequency, inductance and capacitance etc. The laboratory satisfies the institute laboratory requirement.

Matlab is a computing environment specially designed for matrix computations. It is widely used for the study of a variety of applications, including circuits, signal processing, control systems, communications, image processing, symbolic mathematics, statistics, neural networks, wavelets, and system identification. Its large library of built-in functions and toolboxes, as well as its graphical capabilities, make it a valuable tool for electrical engineering education and research. Matlab has an interactive mode in which user commands are interpreted immediately as they are typed. Alternatively, a program (called a script) can be written in advance using a text editor, saved as a file, and then executed in Matlab.  The objective of this lab is to review how to access Matlab, Simulink, and the Communications Toolbox, and to become familiar with the basic operations of these applications.

The goal of the Integrated Circuits Design and Test Laboratory is to give the students the  better understanding about the circuit integration on a single chip. And also to provide the training to  the students according to the need of the industry as the  area of integrated circuit design and test is growing in pace and also the focus of the industrialists is on high-frequency digital, mixed-signal, and RF design communities and in semiconductor manufacturing and semiconductor testing. Which arises the need of the integrated circuit laboratory. In IC laboratory we start our journey of learning with the understanding of simply transistors and diodes to the large scale integrated ciruits.

This laboratory course builds on the lecture course "Signal Processing" which is mandatory for all students of electrical and electronics engineering. The course aims at practical experience with the simulation and development of basic signal processing algorithms, using standardized environments such as MATLAB and general-purpose DSP development kits. Experiments cover fundamental concepts of digital signal processing like sampling and aliasing, quantization in A/D conversion and in internal arithmetic operations, digital filter design and implementation, signal generation, spectrum estimation and fast transforms, sampling-rate conversion and multi-rate processing. Application experiments address a selection of multi-media and digital communications problems where visual and auditory feedback is used to demonstrate the desired effects and artefacts of digital processing.

The objective of the Control Systems Laboratory is to provide experiences in analyzing and designing open loop and closed loop position and velocity  control systems. This laboratory will allow students to conduct tests and  design projects related to servo motor control. Gain a familiarity with standard laboratory instruments including the function generator, oscilloscope, multi-meter, DC power supply and analog computer. Students Gain working experience with DC motors, the direct measurement of their physical properties for use in deriving a transfer function, and the indirect measurement of the motor transfer function using frequency response methods & Design and implement the control for an actuator-positioning device.
