The Department of Avionics at the institute was established in the year 2007. The department offers graduate course in Avionics and post graduate courses in RF and Microwave Communication, Digital Signal Processing, Control Systems and VLSI & Microsystems. Moreover, the department also offers Ph.D. in various discipline of Avionics/Electrical/Computer Science Engineering. The curriculum of various academic programme in the Department of Avionics ensures the deeper understanding of the fundamentals and advanced courses of Avionics with a special thrust to enhance research capability of students to undertake the challenges in the field of avionics engineering. The designed curriculum consists of many state of the art courses from various disciplines such as Analog Circuits, Digital System Design, Communication Engineering, Signal Processing, RF and Microwave Engineering, VLSI Design , Navigation, Control and Guidance, Computer Technology and Power Electronics. The Department houses excellent faculty members with proven research background. The department has established various laboratories where research and experiments were undertaken.
The vision of the Department is to educate graduate, post graduate and PhD students with substantial knowledge, skills, and expertise in the area of Avionics Engineering. It is also envisaged to undertake futuristic research in areas related to Electronics, Space Science and Technology which can feed to the ISROs programmes at suitable juncture. All eligible graduates from the department can lead their career by joining ISRO and can contribute to the National Space Programme. Moreover, all graduate students from department will have excellent opportunities to build their career in various leading public and private organizations through institute placement assistance. With this in mind a well organized academic and research programme supported with lab facilities comparable with the world class institutions is provided to achieve excellence in the field of electronics, in particular to the Space Science and Technology and to meet the National requirements in the field of Science and Technology.
The department has an ambitious plan of setting up state of the art centre of excellence in the areas of Electronics, Communication and Electrical Engineering for which following research laboratories with world class facilities and infrastructure is very rapidly coming up:
