Telecommunications landscape is changing rapidly and currently undergoing tremendous growth. From ordering a pizza to the high tech radar on a jet, we see telecommunications making wonders. The convergence of the computer and telecommunications technology promises innovative products and services that will revolutionize life and work. With leaps and bounds in technology, telecommunications has been acknowledged as a vital ingredient of economic growth.
Keeping in view of this ever green technology importance and huge demand for Telecommunication Engineer's for the nation needs, SRM Institute of Science and Technology (formerly known as SRM University) Management has started, the Department of Telecommunication Engineering (TCE) during the year 2008.
Experienced faculty are available with TCE Department who are from various areas of specialization like electronics, digital signal processing, microwave & satellite communications, optical engineering, mobile/ wireless communications, wireless information networks & security, Information theory and software programming for telecommunications (Java, .NET & Symbian OS).
TCE offering under graduate degree program, "B.Tech. - Information & Telecommunication Engineering"; a post graduate program, "M.Tech - Telecommunication Networks" and PhD Programs which have been formulated to give a firm grounding on the principles of telecommunications technology.
The students and the faculty of the department take part in national/international conferences as well as workshops and seminars in their areas of interest. This gives them a valuable insight into global trends and advances in the telecommunications field. The telecommunication engineering department initiated “TEA - Telecommunication Engineers Association”. The TEA will provide a platform for the students to develop skills across the horizon; Exposure in extracurricular activities and interaction among intra and inter college/university students; and helping the students to have a proper technical knowledge particularly in the field of telecommunications by conducting various events at National level and Guest lecturers on specialized topics and workshops on topics related to Telecommunications. Very recently, with the support of IEEE, USA, the TCE Dept. started IEEE Communications Society Student Branch for the benefit of Student community. IEEE Comsoc @ SRM plays vital role in the careers of all Telecommunication Engineering Students at SRM Institute of Science and Technology (formerly known as SRM University).
There are opportunities galore in information and telecommunication sectors. Students can build a career in mobile/wireless communications/networks, information technology, satellite communications, cable networks, and communication devices development etc. And, those with a flair for higher education can pursue ME/M.Tech and Ph.D. Engineers are in demand in public & private sectors and the real thrust in recent times has been in information and telecommunications arena. More than 80% of TCE students were placed during 2010-2011 in reputed IT & Telecom companies through our campus & off campus recruitment.
