          This is the largest department in the MIT Campus of Anna University. The faculty and research scholars do research in the cutting edge areas which include Communication, Signal & Image Processing, Computing, Network Security, Sensor Networks, Optical Communication, Radio Frequency Electronics, VLSI, Embedded System, and IoT. The department has collaborative partners from academia and industry. The department has acquired state of the art test and measuring instruments and electronics systems for training the students in the cutting edge areas. The department produces high-quality research in the Ph. D. Programme and is a recognized QIP center for Ph.D. UG and PG students are encouraged to undergo exchange program with Foreign Universities, which have MoU with Anna University. The department is carrying out various consultancy works and sponsored projects for leading industries such as TCS, Ericsson and Government Organizations like CVRDE. The syllabi of the courses are continuously updated and the laboratories are modernized to reflect the rapid changes in technology. Supplementing the regular curriculum, the students are encouraged to participate in R&D efforts by involving themselves in the sponsored projects executed by the faculty members of the department and other associated research activities. There are 24 full-time Ph.D. scholars, 30 part-time Ph. D. scholars. The department is supported by DST-FIST and UGC-DRS-SAP Phase - II. The Alumni of the department are gener
