ELECTRONICS

|    Dept. Profile   |

           The Department of Electronics had a humble beginning with a U.G. course with Mathematics, Physics and Electronics (MPE) combination in the year 1995 with an intake of 30 students. Later, in 2003 another group with Mathematics, Electronics and Computer Science (MECS) was started.  The Department flourished gradually and became a Postgraduate Department in the year 2002 with a Research Centre established in 2006.

           The Department has well-qualified staff members with Doctoral degrees in Electronics.  As it is run purely under self-funding system, it has three Assistant Professors. Dr. C.Saritha and Dr V.Sukanya are well-experienced and qualified. They have published papers in national and international journals. Dr. C. Saritha has to her credit 5 national and 2 international publications. Dr. V. Sukanya also has the same number of publications to her credit.  Ms. K. Nalanakshi is a young teacher with lot of zeal for learning and teaching.

Electronics           The Department caters to the academic needs of about 185 students of I, II & III Year UG Courses.  The students come both from rural and urban areas.  The ratio of boys and girls is 40:60.  The language skills and basic subject knowledge vary according to the background of a student. The department is provided with a well-furnished staff room, three classrooms, five laboratories and one research center. The Department is equipped with various learning resources like a departmental library with 200 books and 10 journals which can be borrowed by the students during the lab or leisure hour for reference.  It is also provided with computers and internet facility.  The college is trying to provide more library books and journals to improve the facilities. In addition to this, it is also using the other teaching tools like Over-Head Projector, LCD projectors and charts etc., in order to make the teaching more interesting to the students.

           The department also handles classes for I year B.Com (Comp) to teach Electronics in Daily Life under CBIDE. The department frames its own syllabi in the Board of Studies (BOS) under the guidance of outside experts and gets the same ratified in the Academic Council. The S.K. University guidelines are followed for the M.Sc. Course.

          The department works hard not only for the academic progress of the students but also for their overall development. The pass percentage of the students has been above 90 on an average. The progression of the students has also been excellent. The percentage of students who reach the universities is around 75 and those who reach the level of M.Phil., or Ph.D., is around 10. This is all because of the semester system and also the hard work of the teachers which enable the students to be thorough with the prescribed syllabus and prepare well for internal tests and semester-end examinations. The department also constantly monitors the progress of the students by getting feedback from them with regard to the curriculum teaching-learning-evaluation. The students are at liberty to approach the department for any kind of help they needed to understand the subject. The students are advised to prepare charts      or models.  Simple science projects are assigned to students to improve their scientific temper. The faculty regularly conducts seminars, guest lectures, group discussions and quiz programmes for effective learning.  New teaching methods are an integral part of the department.  Remedial classes are conducted for the slow-learners identified by the faculty. It involves the students in basic research projects, takes them to research institutes as “beyond syllabus scholarly activities”. The students express satisfaction with regard to the syllabus, methods of teaching and evaluation.

           Besides, the faculty and the students participate in extension activities such as clean and green programmes, blood donation camps, plantation, awareness programmes regarding superstitions and diseases. Some students of the department are actively engaged in NSS and NCC programmes.
 
Electronics           The alumni of the department  have been serving in various state, Central Government and private organizations (both in India and abroad) in such cadres as administrators, lecturers, teachers, scientists and software professionals. They often come to the college and meet the present students and share their views with them with regard to the subject and institution. They express happiness about the performance of the department.

           It can be said briefly that the department is one of the best departments in the college. It uses innovative methods of teaching with new ideas. The department can boast of its well-equipped laboratories, good student progression and the supporting management.  There are opportunities for the department to expose students to hand on experiments, guest lectures and interaction with eminent teachers from various colleges. The department has some drawbacks such as not having permanent staff, the students not opting for the course as most of the students prefer to join professional courses after their intermediate. The department has plans to improve the research center, conduct a national seminar on Applications of Digital Signal Processing, collaborate with industries and to start inter-disciplinary certificate courses.  It has already collaboration with JNTU Engineering college, Anantapur and S.K. University.
