About The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering: 

The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering was established under Faculty of Technology, Gauhati University during the year 2009-2010, primarily to offer B.Tech and M.Tech programmes. The founding HoD i/c was Dr. Kandarpa Kumar Sarma. Earlier, the M.Tech programme in Electronics and Communication Technology (with AICTE approval) was introduced in the Department of Electronics and Communication Technology (former Department of Electronics Science) during 2008-09. The B.Tech programme was launched in the year 2009 and was initiated from the month of August of that year. The programme was introduced with only two faculty members and two support staff. The Department was established with a view to impart quality education in the field of Electronics and its allied areas and provides a platform of research in upcoming fields.

Since its inception, the Department has been providing quality education to the students. The faculties of the Department are young, energetic, dynamic, diligent and equally well-experienced. The primary strength of the Department is in the areas of Soft-Computing, Digital Signal Processing, Communication, Computer Vision, Bio medical Signal Processing and VLSI design. It has a mix of analog and digital equipment for hardware design, microprocessor and microcontroller programming, independent computing facilities to perform simulation based design using Matlab R2010a, Remcom wireless suite, Mathematica, Multisim etc. software of which complete support and related services are available.

The Department is having sophisticated laboratories, all of which are equipped with audio-visual aids. The Department is equipped with uninterrupted power supply and internet connectivity. The Department also has a well-stocked library of its own. Moreover, for proper coordination among the faculties, guest teachers and instructors, other staff and the students a healthy environment has been created in the Department. The Department is associated with the organization of a number of workshops, celebrations, popular talks, training programmes etc.

 In 2012, MTech in Signal Processing and Communication was introduced with AICTE approval.  

Further, in 2013,MTech in Signal Processing and VLSI Design was introduced with AICTE approval.The Department has received support under MHRD-NEQIP (2014-17) and MHRD- TEQIP III (2017-20). 

Mr. Jyoti Prakash Medhi, Assistant Professor became HoD i/c during 2014-2017.

Prof. Kandarpa Kumar Sarma became the regular HoD from September, 2017.
