Diploma Course in Electronics with specialisation in Marine Electronics was introduced in the year 1995-96 with an intake capacity of 30 students under World Bank Assistsed Project. Later on a need was felt for changing the nomenclature of the course to Diploma in Electronic & Communication Engineering. The department has a staff strength of seven and five well-equipped laboratories, viz.
1. Electrical Laboratory
2. Printed Circuit Boards Manufacturing Laboratory
3. Digital Electronics Laboratory
4. Electronics Laboratory
5. Instrumentation and Telecommunication Laboratory
The Present curriculum caters to the Electronics Engineering Industry at large. Field visits form an integral part of the students academic activities. Project work gives more emphasis on practical hands-on-training imparted to them. Some of our students are employed in reputed companies like Elcome Marine, D-Link, Siemens, Zenith Computers, Finolex, etc. Regular interaction is maintained with the industries for a constant update of the fast changing industrial scenario.
The Electrical section of the department handles the Power-house and the Electrical Maintenance works at the Institute. Department has also successfully designed and conducted a one-week course on ‘Electrical Safety’ for transhipper technician and two days programme on "Introduction to PLC" for Industry personnel. The department staff also conducts training and examinations for the Institute of Maritime Studies, Community Polytechnic Wing of the institute and the ITI trainees. The department plans to offer specialization in a few more fields in the near future and training programmes on introduction to Digital technology and Microprocessors, EPROM programming and PCB fabrication as per industry requirements.
