Program Overview

Master of Technology in Electronics and Communication with Specialization in Wireless Communication and Embedded Systems is a full-time two-year (four semesters) program. The program has been specially designed to meet the increasing need for the professionals who would be able to respond to the convergence between communication systems and embedded systems. The program aims to provide exposure to students who wish to build a professional career in ICT, working at the intersection of technology, research, and development in the areas of Wireless Communications (LTE, 5G Technology and MIMO channel), RF and Antenna theory, Signal Processing, Embedded Systems, VLSI and FPGA subsystem design, etc.

Apart from courses, students are required to pursue one full year (two semesters) of research under the guidance of a faculty advisor and submit a master’s thesis in order to obtain the degree of M.Tech. (ICT) specializing in the respective track. On successful completion of the program, the students will be able to acquire essential technical and practical knowledge for solving real-world problems in the Wireless Communications and Embedded Systems domain using modern technologies and tools, and will have the ability to demonstrate excellent analytical and logical problem-solving skills. Apart from receiving rigorous exposure to various areas of scholastic study and research, students are at the same time groomed to cultivate sound professional ethics.

The curriculum mandates a minimum of 61 credits, 40 earned through coursework and 21 through research credits. Out of the 40 required coursework credits, 33 credits are allocated to compulsory (core) courses, 7 credits are allocated to electives.
