The Department of Electronics and Telecommunication is one of the major department of Vishwakarma Institute of Information Technology established in 2002 offering programs : Under Graduate, Post Graduate (Signal Processing) and Ph.D.

With the change in engineering education scenario, we strive to impart training rather than theoretic approach to support experiential learning. We are sure that, demand raised by technological growth will be satisfied and our students will be empowered to face future generation in the field of Electronics and Telecommunication. Faculty members in the department modulate teaching based on their research experience and strive continuously to become effective teacher. In the philosophy of Outcome Based Education (OBE) curricular, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities are student centric.
