The Research and Development center was established in 2004 with affiliation to VTU. The department is involved in a wide range of application oriented research supported by grants received from DRDO, ISRO, DST and Industry for varied topics such as underwater communication, high performance compact antennas and image processing. At present the department has 45 PhD – Research students creating opportunities for M.Tech students to work in leading research problems. Electronics and Communication is the lead department for Centre of Excellence in Smart Antenna Systems. The center of excellence in smart antenna systems and its measurements (SAS) specializes in the analysis, design, optimization and measurement of RF and microwave devices for wireless and defense applications. This facility is for characterization of Antennas and also doubles as an EMI/EMC test facility. This large Electromagnetics and Microwave facility will be utilized for multiple activities R & D activities for funded projects, Lab facility for Antenna and EMI/EMC measurements that are a part of our PG programs and Consultancy activities for outsourced measurements. The department has MOUs with various leading industries and strong placement providers including QUALCOMM, TEXAS Instruments, SAMSUNG Semiconductors, NXP Semiconductors, Infineon, MEDIATEK, NVIDIA, INTEL, Keysight, TE Connectivity Department of Sericulture, Govt. of Karnataka, and BEL.
