The branch of Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering was introduced with the rapid development of telecommunications technology across the globe. The course is often offered as a sub-branch of Electronics Engineering or as a specialization course during an MTech degree.

The common aim of the course is to teach the aspirants in-depth about the wireless communication network, cabled networks and train them to develop electronics circuits required in communication devices.

Program Details

The BTech program deals with the study of circuit designs covering a big portion of electronics engineering & broadcast engineering. The program is meant to make the student understand signal transmission and processing along with strategic mass development of the overall process.


The primary syllabus in the decision-making first year remains common to all engineering courses. However, throughout 4 years or 8 semesters. a student will be learning the following: 1. Electronic Devices 2. Electronic Devices Lab 3. Digital System Design 4. Digital System Design Laboratory 5. Signals and System 6. Network Theory 7. Bio-Medical Electronics 8. Analog and Digital Communication 9. Analog and Digital Communication Laboratory 10. Power Electronics 11. Analog circuits 12. Microcontrollers 13. Mobile Communication and Networks 14. Microcontroller Lab 15. Electromagnetic Waves 16. Satellite Communication 17. Electromagnetic Waves Lab 18. Embedded Systems 19. Computer Architecture 20. Probability and Stochastic Processes 21. Digital Signal Processing 22. Digital Signal Processing Laboratory 23. Nanoelectronics 24. Control Systems 25. Computer Network 26. Scientific computing 27. Computer Network Laboratory 28. Electronics Measurement Lab 29. Mini Project/Electronic Design workshop

Eligibility Criteria

As is for all engineering courses, admission to colleges for BTech in Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering is subject to qualifying allowed entrance exams by institutes.

  1. JEE Mains & Advanced
  2. VEE
  3. MHT CET

To be eligible to sit for the entrance exam, a student has to qualify for 10+2 education with an aggregate of 60% marks in Physics, Chemistry, and Maths.

Future Scope

After graduation, an Electronics and Telecommunication Engineer exposes you to a range of career opportunities in the Communications Industry, Electronics Industry, as well as in Software  Industry. A BTech in Electrical & Telecommunications Engineering will not get you high-end job opportunities but also allows you to pursue higher studies in the discipline. Job exposure includes top multimedia service companies where the business requires skilled Telecommunications Engineering to keep transferring information over video conferencing and broadcasting through the Internet.
